The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 193 - Time of death

5th March 2015 (12:44)

So in beleted answer to lignota's question from Monday - I'd actually decided to show this scene as a flashback...

Reminder: as I've depicted them, Maedhros has darker red hair than the twins Amrod and Amras who are more auburn. Celegorm is blond. Caranthir has darker skin than his brothers. Curufin has neater hair than Maglor (who also never puts down his lute) - in fact chibi- Curufin's head is identical to his father's, it's the clothing that distinguishes them. Finwë isn't wearing his crown here because he doesn't consider himself king while he's in exile, although everybody else does...

Part 193: Time of death

Next time: Part 194: Melkor only knocks once

I see! That's probably the best of both worlds, from a dramatic perspective.

Thanks - I think it works. And there's actually a good break point coming up, because I realised that after this story is over Fëanor runs off into the night and isn't seen again for some time - the scene with the Oath takes place later on. So that lets me fit in the storyline with Morgoth and Ungoliant before returning to events in Tirion.
