The history of Middle-Earth (chibi version): Part 30: Cursing the darkness

9th May 2013 (11:14)

On to Chapter Three of the Silmarillion!

Incidentally, according to 'The Book of Lost Tales' Manwë and Varda do have an actual palace on top of Taniquetil, with blue and white marble walls and a watchtower. They don't just stand on the mountain peak all day long. :)

And Aulë responds with a great little punchline, that Stephen's skipped for some reason. Hope it's going to be included in a later post...?

Afraid not, because I've already spent several weeks on a four-page chapter of the book and wanted to move on. Varda and Manwë's conversation in the first panel here is there to summarise the last few paragraphs of Chapter Two, rather than give an entire strip to wrapping things up.

I might have Yavanna and Aulë teasing each other about eagles and dwarves later on, though, if it fits, as a background conversation.
