The history of Middle-Earth (chibi version): Part 66: A fair fight

19th September 2013 (14:13)

Originally, I was boggled by the idea that Tolkien would give a special mythological name to a chain, of all things. Then I realised Angainor was probably a homage to Gleipnir in Norse myth.

Part 66: A fair fight


Next time: Part 67: Crime and punishment

So how did they test the chains?

"There, honey. Can you break out of these?"
"Of course I can. I'm basically a goddess."
"But let's pretend you're Melkor..."
"That's a weird fantasy."
"Wait, I didn't mean - "
"But OK. 'Ooooh, I'm so evil. I'm bad baddy bad and your chains won't hold me forever. Does it turn you on?'"

Heh. Emma Caulfield playing Yavanna in the Silmarillion movie? :)

Though technically, a chain strong enough to hold Melkor would hold any of the other Valar too, except possibly Tulkas since "brute strength" is his power.

I imagine those six-inch platform shoes are a real hindrance to Melkor in a fistfight.

Don't even tell me where Tulkas put Grond... I don't want to know.

But Melkor's shoes have sharp points on the toes! They're lethal weapons! :)
