The history of Middle-Earth (chibi version): Part 9: War! What is it good for?

18th February 2013 (12:12)

I'm actually managing to keep to a regular posting schedule for these, and I did a couple more yesterday so I've some in the bank for the foreseeable future. Wonders never cease.

On the 'Buffy' reviews front, I didn't get into town for a long time recently (still convalescing) but I have finally got to the comics shop and acquired about a month's supply of Season 9 comics, so hopefully there'll be reviews of them at some point.

In this episode - how do you fight a war when everybody's immortal?

Word List: Eru = God (literally, "The One")

Part 9: War! What is it good for?

Next time: Part 10: Victory in Arda

Chibis by 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. Apologies to any Australians reading this! The "Elf" and "Human" chibis are ones I designed for Beren and Lúthien, so you'll see them again later.
Questions and comments welcome!

Hmmm. Young Mairon/Sauron there is kind of Andrew Wells to Melkor's Warren Mears, isn't he? Except without the redemption bit at the end.

I'd say Nienna and Estë are coming out of this the best... their signature contributions (clinical depression and a nap, respectively) have not been spoiled by Melkor. Assuming Estë is still asleep, that is.

Well spotted - the Andrew-Warren byplay was definitely something I was thinking of when I wrote their dialogue.

Estë does wake up occasionally; I've given her dialogue in upcoming issues. she just has the happy knack of being able to fall asleep anywhere, any time. It's her husband Irmo who spends all his time in a drug-fuelled haze dreamworld.
