The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 197 - And it feels so good

19th March 2015 (20:35)

Oh the complexities you get yourself into when you try and reconcile the existence of an immortal race of beings with strict Roman Catholic doctrines on divorce...

Obviously when Tolkien wrote that Nerdanel went to live with Indis after leaving Fëanor he didn't mean it that way. Probably not, anyway. :)

As a reminder, Vairë is the wife of Námo, and thus the Lady of Mandos. She's also a lot more approachable than her husband.

Part 197: And it feels so good

Next time: Part 198: And it's understood

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.
Questions and comments welcome!

I've always wondered what would happen if Indis got herself killed in the War of Wrath. Námo might have to install a rotating turnstile at the gates of Mandos...

I may possibly have a non-canonical Míriel-Indis-Nerdanel addition to the story planned for posting on Monday. ;)
