The history of Middle-Earth (chibi version): Part 86: I've got to break free

If you can't read the text on the map, it says "Ulmo's patent waterproof map of the relevant parts of the world".

Belegaer - 'Great Sea'. In Sindarin, which is a language that doesn't exist yet at this stage of the story... /o\

If you had to tow a full-sized island across the ocean, a Kraken would certainly come in handy.

Fun fact: in the very earliest versions of Tolkien's legendarium, dating back to 1915 or so, the island used to transport the Elves would afterwards (once the Valar had finished with it) end up as Great Britain. But that idea didn't survive in his work.

Part 86: I've got to break free

Next time: Part 87: Horn concerto

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.
