The history of Middle-Earth (chibi version): Part 27: Red in tooth and... leaf?

29th April 2013 (10:46)

For best effect, you need to imagine Yavanna's expression in that last image to be enthusiastically bloodthirsty. :)

Also, just to clarify: while God came down to Valinor to visit Aulë in the last section and so they were able to converse, as a rule only Manwë among the Valar is able to contact him directly. (He knows God's private number, so to speak.) That's why Yavanna is asking Manwë to speak to him in this chapter.

Part 27: Red in tooth and ...leaf?

Next time: Part 28: Hoom!

So that's where the Angry Molesting Tree in Cabin In The Woods came from.

Only if it was an intelligent angry molesting tree. :)

Considering that my town now has about one-third as many trees as it did when I was a kid, I would like to see intelligent trees that can defend themselves, too.

God certainly is accommodating in the Silmarillion. He's like Papa Smurf. "Why, of course you can have tree shepherds, my little Smurfette... I mean, Yavanna. Now, I have to figure out what to do about these eagles. They're pooping all over my attic."

Problem is, the trees might decide to wander off to a new town, so you'd have the same effect anyway...
