The history of Middle-Earth (chibi version): Part 72: Tourists

10th October 2013 (21:15)

Special bonus extra feature: a deleted scene coming after the end of today's comic!

FINWË: It sounds better in Elvish, I promise.

ELWË: Aren't we speaking Elvish now?

VARDA: No, I'm communicating directly with your minds. How do you say 'Queen of the Stars' in Elvish, anyway?

(simultaneously:)
FINWË: Elentári.
ELWË: Elbereth.

FINWË (to Elwë): Stop speaking that crazy moon language of yours!

ELWË: What's a 'moon'?

VARDA (to herself): Hmm. I'll have to remember that one.

Yes, I know that technically at this point Elwë would still be speaking Old Quenya, not Sindarin.


Part 72: Tourists



Next time: Part 73: (I haven't thought of a title yet)

Nessa and Vána are going to tape pictures of the elf boys in their lockers at school.

You probably saw this already:

I'm thinking of Nessa and Vána as being a bit older than that. They'd write smutty m/m/m fanfiction about the three of them. :)

I have to say that Silmarillion fanfiction is something I've never seen, much less the smutty kind.

Maybe because it's hard to picture anyone in Tolkien ever having sex. (Except in the movie versions, of course. Though I still can't picture Galadriel and Celeborn...)

The Silmarillion Writers' Guild has a lot of it. However, I sometimes get the impression people are reluctant to write Middle-earth smut because they worry the Professor Would Not Approve. :)

(Though that doesn't seem to stop curiouswombat with her extensive knowledge of Elvish slang terms for sexual parts...)

Though to be honest, I tend to prefer the Silm fan art that's out there. Much of it by actual artists who know how to draw and paint. :)
