Thanks to the people who replied to my poll last week! It's nice to know there's an audience for these cartoons, and that LJ isn't totally dead yet. Only mostly dead... I'm pretty sure a few years ago a poll like that would have had five times as many replies, even if many of them would click the 'I'm not reading them" button. Oh well. :(
Anyway, say hello to a new generation of Elves! I've gone with the assumption that Ingwë, Finwë and Elwë are not the same people as Imin, Tata and Enel; it fits the continuity of my story better and is neither supported nor contradicted by canon.
"Námo acting mysterious" is a nod to the theory discussed in a previous post, that the souls of Elves killed by Melkor's minions might already have been showing up in Mandos even before their formal 'discovery' by the Valar.
