The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 238 - First blood

For best effect, read these cartoons in a darkened room lit by flickering torches, with the sounds of screams and yells of pain and metal clashing on metal all around you, and the smell of blood and salt water in your nostrils.

So, today's events aren't precisely canon, but I wanted to reconcile three things:

  • Galadriel in later years feels guilty over her deeds at Alqualondë.

  • She and Finrod are said to have defended the Teleri against the Noldor during the Kinslaying.

  • Nevertheless, the two of them were allowed to accompany the Noldor on their continuing journey, and even took leadership roles — which seems unlikely if they were fighting on the opposite side!

Part 238 First blood

Next time: Part 239: Perfumes of Araby

Chibis by the now-dead website formerly known as
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.
