The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 262 - You're not serious

The description of the Helcaraxë in the published Silmarillion is fairly mundane, making it sound more like the Bering Straits. But the description in the Ambarkanta that Tolkien wrote in the 1930s is much more metal, so I've gone with it here. Plus, it makes sense in a flat world.

    Part 262 You're not serious

    Next time: Part 263: Crossing the ice

    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.
    Questions and comments welcome!
