The history of Middle-Earth (chibi version): Part 22: A jealous God

11th April 2013 (09:48)

So did anybody else, on reading 'Of Aulë and Yavanna' in the Silm, get the impression that Eru was basically trolling Aulë?

Next time: Part 23: Genesis 22, the Prequel

So the one in front, whose desire for gold transcends all questions of souled-ness, must be Durin.

And the one in the middle, whose comments are "Bloody hell," "Uh oh" and "Oh bugger," must be Arthur Dent.

And now Aulë gets to explain all this to Yavanna. ("Fiery forges? MORE fiery forges? Grrrrrrrr.....")

Actually, I'd figured the one on the left who sounds halfway rational to be Durin. Then two Daleks, Spike and three zombies. :)

Ah, He's a prankster god.

Was this before or after He hid the dinosaur fossils?

That wasn't God! That was Melkor who created dinosaurs, to give Oromë something to hunt!

I always feel kind of sorry for Aulë - he was so wonderfully enthusiastic and just being creative...

My sympathy's even more with Yavanna, actually - but I don't think Eru comes out of all this looking very good. (I'll expand on that next time, too.)

Eru couldn't be trolling Aule.

Trolls don't exist yet.

Maybe he invented them specially for the occasion? :)
