The history of Middle-Earth (chibi version): Part 1: In the beginning.

I've been playing around with an online chibi generator again, and conceived the rather mad idea of retelling the story of J R R Tolkien's Silmarillion using cute Japanese anime-style cartoon characters. Because I can. Those who suspect that I'm using these auto-generated characters rather than drawing them myself is because I can't, in fact, draw... are entirely correct.

I know there's a grand total of maybe one Tolkien fan on my flist, but I decided to go ahead and post these anyway. I'll try and make it a regular periodical thing, but I'll post two today since they are fairly similar in concept, and go together. I don't know how far I'll get, but I've got ideas planned out for at least as far as the Theft of the Great Jewels.

Part 1: In the Beginning

Next time: Part 2: Valaquenta

Chibis by
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.
