Sproing' is the noise a bud makes when it opens, or so I'm told. :)  I-cal'antúlien is Old Qenya for 'the light has come again'.


    Part 287: Sproing



    Next time: Part 289: tba
    Chibis by the now-dead website formerly known as tektek.org
    Original story by and copyright to J R R Tolkien, ed. C Tolkien: Primarily based on the Silmarillion, but incorporating ideas from the 12-volume History of Middle Earth series.
    Questions and comments welcome!

    Yay, Vana! She did a thing!

    This is being a very visually beautiful sequence.

    Aw, Vána gets her moment. Does it really say "Squee" right there in HoME, though? This being Tolkien, it's probably spelt "squée."

    Vána's Tears have since been patented by Monsanto.

    "She lifted up her sweet voice with all her power and it came trembling faintly to the gates of Valmar, and all the Valar heard" is what it actually says. :)

    Vána's voice isn't as loud as Manwë's.

    Hoping we haven't seen the end of these...

    I've not abandoned it, but I'll be honest that I've felt a bit burned out with them lately. I'll need to psyche myself up at some point...
