The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 109: The world was young

Today's title (and the upcoming one too) is from the song Gimli sings in Chapter II/4 of 'Fellowship of the Ring', about Durin founding Moria/Khazad-dûm.

Somewhere buried deep in 'History of Middle-earth' I found a statement that Melian was 'akin, before the world was made, unto Yavanna '. So I made them cousins. :)

Part 109: The world was young

Next time: Part 110: Many-pillared halls
