Oh sweet Nienna, that was the bondage one wasn't it? You're really getting into this. :eek:

Well, in honesty I was just using whatever Tolkien Gateway said and using 'about' to cover myself, but:

Okay, now I'm imagining him dropping his note cards in the Ring of Doom, and all the Valar watching as he scrabbles to put them back in the right order. :D

Elwing was about three, Earendil about ten (always "about", because Tolkien's timelines were in flux and quite old). If the NoME stuff about half-elven aging is accurate, we'd expect them both to be...

Okay that's actually adorable. Having him learn from Balar-dwellers means keeping Elwing unaware that the language still even exists, until Earendil reveals his lessons to her, possibly when he names...

Silmaril How does Earendil speak Beorian?

It looks like I was ambivalent in the other thread, but on rechecking I'm pretty sure it's the Dagorath. Christopher concludes that it's the War of Wrath, but there's two pieces of evidence...

I would have sworn he was in the Appendices, but I stand corrected. :)

For Feanor, all that means he has to die before Gil-Galad, which I figure is a given - unless he's Sauron or the Mouth, Adar...

Oh that was lovely. I feel like the writer, whoever they may turn out to be, really understood horses. The view into the pre-LotR court of Edoras was fascinating too; there's a skill in taking names...

It is quite clever, isn't it? I feel like the tale-in-a-tale conceit is one Tolkien quite enjoyed but never did enough with, so it's nicely fitting. Using the Rohirrim for the story was a good...

Red and Black are not Feanor and Fingolfin, though "the gold" is Finarfin. It's not their kids either.

Yep. :) Though technically black is an assumption, and red could be more precisely described.

At least some of those lines refers to Feanor, but Feanor is not one of "we, all three".

Okay, here we go:

Red for fire, burning fierce
From forge to raging final cost.
Black for kinship's oath renewed,
A crown unsought 'neath shadow lost.
Silver shining for the gold

Okay, so:



"Danceless and dishless" leaves a spoon, on a table. The 'dull' part could be a reference to the spoon in the song being of silver, I guess?
