The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 158 - Restiveness

6th October 2014 (18:55)

I'm not sure to what extent the people reading this have memorised the family trees in the Silmarillion and instantly know who all these people are and their interrelationships - but in case there are some of you who haven't and don't:

Top row: The boys are Celegorm and Curufin, two of Fëanor's sons, and the girl is Aredhel, their cousin, the daughter of Fingolfin. Curufin's new baby is Celebrimbor.

Bottom row: Fëanor shows up wearing the Silmarils, and two more of his sons - Maedhros and Maglor - drift over to join in the conversation.

Part 158: Restiveness

Next time: Part 159: Stirring the pot

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.

*raises hand for 'has memorized the family trees'* (But I definitely want anyone who hasn't to be able to follow this - it's cool if you keep adding the explanations/reminders.)

It's great to see these back! And I like this chapter. Ooh, foreshadowing . . .

Even for people who know all the characters - I've just checked and I've created about 160 chibis so far for this. I wouldn't blame anyone for getting some of them mixed up at this stage!

I'm glad you keep having the reminders. I haven't memorized the family tree, but I do get a lot of oh-yea moments.

Good to know. :) I'll try to remember to do it at least when I reintroduce new characters, or switch storylines back to a different group of people.

"Little Celebrimbor is really giving his teething ring a workout, though. We tried taking it away from him the other day, but he'd hidden a spare one among his stuffed animals."
