The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 192 - I'm calling it

In the Silmarillion the news from Formenos is brought by nameless 'messengers', but Tolkien wrote a more detailed account in HoME which specifies that it was indeed Maedhros and his brothers who arrived. (And he includes the detail that at first Maedhros didn't notice his father was there when he began speaking to Manwë.)

You may notice a certain resigned tone in Manwë's response. :)

Psst - Vairë: Of course Nienna can sympathise. It's her job.

Part 192: I'm calling it

Next time: Part 193: Time of death

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.
