The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 190 - Charging - clear!

23rd February 2015 (12:27)

There may be a theme to this current run of titles. :)

Trivia for the day: when Tolkien first wrote this section of the story, he hadn't yet come up with the idea of Míriel's death and Finwë's remarriage to Indis - so Fëanor just said, "I will be the first Elf to die in Aman". Once Tolkien decided that the honour actually belonged to Fêanor's mother, he had to re-write this dialogue to be 'the first to be slain'.

Also, in the original draft it was Ulmo who said Aulë's lines about "give him time", so I gave Ulmo a speaking part in the scene anyway.


Part 190: Charging - clear!



Next time: Part 191: We're losing him...

Hey! Vairë will fight you for him, and she's a mean one with a knitting needle!
