The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 95: Forsaken

23rd January 2014 (12:05)

I keep forgetting that Ossë and Uinen are married. I wonder what their children would be like, if Maiar (other than Melian) could have children?

To clarify for those unfamiliar with the story; this is all happening while Elwë and Melian are still standing entranced in that clearing, as shown in Monday's cartoon.

Part 95: Forsaken

Next time: Part 96: Rescue party.

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!

sea shanties

Because sea shanties are notorious for being happy cheerful songs...

Actually, most of the sea shanties I'm familiar with are happy and cheerful, or at least rousing and have choruses you can sing along to.

On the other hand, many of them deal with fighting, drinking, and chasing women: so might not be the sort of song you'd really associate with Tolkien's Eldalië. The other Elves might be shocked once the Teleri finally reach Aman...

Yay! I'm all caught up, and up to date! I love this.

(Found you through the silwritersguild's re-reading the Silm project!)

After a few centuries in the company of a punk-rock sailor and his anime mermaid wife, the Teleri were never quite the same as other Elves again...

Maybe they copy Ossë and Uinen's hairstyles...

I just caught up again.
I love how you include bits that other people might be tempted to skip and make them as enjoyable as the rest!

Including everything is probably why I'm already up to 95 cartoons and I'm still only on Chapter 5 of the Silm...

Glad you're enjoying it!
