The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 276 - Going into hiding

21st March 2016 (16:09)

So — back to Valinor. We last saw these guys in #256, just after the Kinslaying of Alqualondë.

The reactions of Vána and Aulë here are based on the Book of Lost Tales version of the story, which I'm going to be drawing on for extra details. Aulë is mad at the Noldor because he's taken their rebellion as a personal slight against him, after all the help and training he gave them.

The hours are 'measureless' because without the Trees, there's no easy way to tell the time. :) (Though having said that, I wonder if the stars were already rising and setting once per solar day?)


    Part 276: Going into hiding



    Next time: Part 277: Vána's plan

    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.

    Wow, Vána is out-crying Nienna.

    The flower in her hand is kept alive by her angelic light, I guess. :-)
