The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 141 - Parole hearing

14th July 2014 (18:02)

The Máhanaxar, where the Valar hold council, is just outside Valmar next to the mound where the Two Trees are, so it's logical Melkor would be led past them as he's taken to judgement.


Part 140: Time's up


Next time: Part 142: Judgement day

Manwë: "So, Melkor... as the all-seeing lord of the Valar, I couldn't help noticing that black cloud over your head labelled Envy, Hatred, Lust."

Melkor: "Uh... it's... social commentary. You know. Like Banksy."

So basically, Melkor just wants to hang out with the elves and look at the trees?

Tulkas is my new favorite Vala!

So you don't take Nienna's "Why don't we all just hug?" approach?

I love Nienna dearly, but when it comes to Melkor Tulkas has the right idea.

I seem to detect subtle signs that Melkor's repentance isn't entirely sincere...
