The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 136 - The family way

26th June 2014 (17:21)

In an attempt to make the conversation easier to follow here I've colour-coded the speakers - Fëanor is blue, Nerdanel red, Mahtan black.
Maedhros, though technically present in the cartoon as well (kind of), doesn't have a speaking part.

Hyarmentir ('Southern Peak') is the second-tallest mountain in the world, in the far south of Valinor.


Part 136: The family way


Next time: Part 137: Seven brothers

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!

Feanorians may be precocious, but not quite that precocious. ;)

Speaking of children and metalworking, may I make a request? (Obviously, this is your story and you're free to ignore it.) I love all the Finweans, in their doomed and dysfunctional glory, but one of my favorite characters is Celebrimbor. In the Silmarillion, the first time he shows up is when he "repudiated the deeds of his father" in Nargothrond, though he clearly must have existed before that. If you let Celebrimbor appear in the story earlier in places he must logically have been, even if he doesn't do or say anything, it will make me very happy.

No problem! I am trying to include everything, as you've probably noticed, but haven't reread some of the later chapters for a long time so I might well have missed the chance to foreshadow certain things.

The way I think I'll do it is to have Celebrimbor, Idril and Orodreth (who I'm making Angrod's son) as children at the time of the Exile, becoming adult during the Siege of Angband. (And at least in Orodreth's case, marrying and having his own children.)
