The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 200 - Thieves' quarrel

30th March 2015 (13:50)

Issue 200. We're scored a double century!

I dealt with my problem with how Morgoth must have really huge hands if he was holding the entire treasure pillaged from Formenos in one of them, by giving him a sack to hold. :)

Part 200: Thieves' quarrel

Next time: Part 201: Blisters on my fingers

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.

Actually this just made me realize even more how utterly terrifying Ungoliant is.
In the later stages of his mythology Tolkien pretty much came to the standing point The Light of the Two Trees -> Eru Iluvatar's (aka God's) light. And Ungoliant is a creature who "came from the outer darkness" and was capable of devouring that divine light and turn it into evenmre darkness to the point that she can threaten Morgoth. She's really one of the closest thing Middle Earth has to Lovecraftian Elder Gods.

And all because Tolkien was nearly bitten by a spider when he was two years old. :)

But yes. Ungoliant is entropy. She's Azathoth.

Without the blind idiot flute players, though. She ate them.
