16th March 2015 (12:23)

Enough doom and gloom! Here's a cute story from HoME to let us all take a break from the misery. Your normal doom-and-gloom service will be resumed next week.

Remember that the souls of dead elves go to the Halls of Mandos?

Part 196: Reunited

Next time: Part 197: And it feels so good

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.

Tolkien wrote the story of Finwë, Míriel and Indis in the late 1950s - which was when his longterm friendship with C S Lewis had been badly damaged because Lewis scandalously married an American divorcee, and Tolkien hated the very idea of divorce. I do get the impression that he was retreating into his fictional world to devise a situation where even immortal elves never got divorced, and when they did re-marry it caused all sorts of problems.
