The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 224 - Leadership contest

26th June 2015 (19:19)

Had to do some last-minute sorting out since I seemed to have duplicated a cartoon, but instead i'd saved over the same one twice. :(

We see three of Fingolfin's four children here. Argon is off doing his own thing, presumably. This is not foreshadowing. :)

Part 224: Leadership contest



Next time: Part 225: Move 'em out!

Chibis by the now-dead website formerly known as 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!

They're not only moving an entire cityful of people, they're moving them in the pitch-dark.
I'm getting nervous. Presumably you've already figured out how to handle what's coming up soon...

Actually it's not pitch dark. There's starlight - or at least there is after Manwë's winds have blown away the gloom and fog left by Ungoliant, which might take a while. I assume elves can see in starlight almost as well as humans can see in daylight.

My main concern is how to work Galadriel into the story, given that Tolkien had at least three mutually-contradictory accounts of her involvement in those events!

I actually do have a storyline sketched out for her that would reconcile that; but it would essentially mean devoting several cartoons to what would, in effect, be 'missing scene' fanfic.
