The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 162 - Gang colours

23rd October 2014 (13:53)

Guess which Shakespeare play I studied at school? :)

Also, today's cartoon contains an in-joke for people who know the laws of heraldry...

Fëanor's audience is all the grandchildren of Finwë, assembled together.


Part 162: Gang colours


Next time: Part 163: Resistible Rise of Fëanor

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.

At least there isn't a joke about pushing maids to the walls. Or crude obscure references to fish.

Love this!

Thanks!

Yeah, I did originally think about including more of the scene into the cartoon (or dedicating an entire one to it), but then I decided that rape jokes aren't really appropriate for this cartoon, even if they're ones written by William Shakespeare. (Though what I would actually have done is had Aredhel or Galadriel saying to Carinthir, "Try putting me to the wall and you'll lose a hand, mate.")

I'd like to see anyone even try that line with Galadriel!
