The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 191 - We're losing him

26th February 2015 (13:06)

"And Nienna arose and went up onto Ezellohar, and cast back her grey hood, and with her tears washed away the defilements of Ungoliant; and she sang in mourning for the bitterness of the world and the Marring of Arda". So, I summed all that up by writing *sob*. Sorry about that. :)

A puzzling thing: at this point, I'm not aware that Melkor has ever actually stolen anything (as far as they know, anyway), so why does Fëanor call him a thief?

Part 191: We're losing him

Next time: Part 192: I'm calling it

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.

Sounds rather gnomic to me. I’m not sure he actually is calling Melkor a literal thief.

Re: “Thief”

It's just odd he'd use that specific word rather than a more general 'villain' or even 'liar'.
