The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 167 - Busted

10th November 2014 (17:33)

Mark Twain once claimed that as a joke he sent a dozen of his friends telegrams saying "All is discovered - flee at once", and all 12 of them immediately left town.

I'm assuming Finwë and Fingolfin (and the rest of Fëanor's family) are in the visitors' area watching the trial.

Part 167: Busted

Next time: Part 168: Hot pursuit

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.

Melkor might have got away with it if it wasn't for those meddling kids...

For some reason, I really appreciate it whenever Tulkas says 'Yes, boss'. I don't know why... I just find it really great.

Well, what I'm going for is that Tulkas is a big bruiser of a man, kind of a thug, won't win any intelligence contests - but he's good-natured and fundamentally decent. He respects Manwë, even though he doesn't have patience for all that "My lord" and "Your majesty" stuff.
