The history of Middle-Earth (chibi version): Part 43: Intermission

24th June 2013 (14:39)

As the title 'intermission' implies, we interrupt this chibified version of the Silmarillion for an editorial comment. Those not interested can skip straight to next Thursday's installment. (Though you'll have to, you know, wait until next Thursday to actually see it. :))

You know how authors sometimes say their characters come alive off the page and start 'talking' to them?

Part 43: Intermission

Next time: Part 44: Oops.

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.
Questions and comments welcome!

ENELYË: People can just ask me what happened!
TOLKIEN: Uh... and then they all went to the grey havens and sailed away to a distant land we can't communicate with. A shame, really. The End.

I think you HAVE to assume this story was made up by Elves of Middle-earth (as opposed to Valinor) who didn't have access to anyone old enough to actually remember those days.

Feanorian penguins

You know I've often wondered why those very first elves aren't the ones in charge in Valinor...

I have a few theories:

Imin, Tata and Enel actually are Ingwë, Finwë and either Elwë or Olwë under different names. (Though presumably Enelyë is not Melian. Tatië could be Miriel, at a stretch.)

Or maybe it's a mixture. Imin and Ingwë might be the same person, but perhaps Enel and Enelyë joined the Avari, and it was their sons Elwë and Olwë who led the Teleri westwards.

Or maybe the first six Elves got captured by Melkor, and were the original breeding stock for the Orcs.

Or maybe the Valar said to Ingwë, Finwë and Elwë, "If you persuade your people to come here and live as our little pets, we'll get rid of the old leaders and make you kings..."

That would be the dark and edgy version of the Silmarillion. :)
