My initial plan was to be finished the Lament tonight, but call shifts got in the way. I would say I am over half wah through. I'm doing it out of order and have patches of music here and there, so...

Don't think so. I doubt many Stewards used the Palantir, or used it often. Denethor is supposed to be the exception. And with such frequent use, Denethor's perception was warped by Sauron, distorting...

Link updated. :) I like the stars-and-flowers, it's a lovely design. Gives Doriath a magical feel. Melian lights up the place with her magical fairy-lights. ^.^

Updated! :) Happy to update as many times as needed. That's what it's for.

Also, "final", "final 1", "really final", "I swear this time for real final" are all acceptable in this kind of work. :P...

That is fantastic! :D Sauron is really creepy in the end. It's brilliant. I love that Valinor disappears for good not with Sauron's pushing, but with Finrod's admission of guilt - or failure to...

Not all spirits are Ainu or Eruhini. The description of Creation somehow skips quickly over the flora and fauna and other things "not quite human". Animals are spirits - both normal animals, and the...

The (totally not) Last Chapter

I was gonna call this version final, but I think a more apt term is the Completed Version (https://drive.google.com/file/d/13H5uqbvtMFykrvdHRYWCNftr8xK_l15i/view?usp=sharing). ;) It is still subject...

Oi! That animal can nearly talk - or would talk, if Tolkien let Frodo & co stay in Rivendell for just a bit longer. :p




I think part of it really was that the Nazgul were deliberately "being...

11 sounds like one of the -grims. Apparently Isengrim II dug the Great Smials, so I'd go with him.

If it's any help, this is what I have up on the score right now (attached).


ETA: "...fear that's only felt by slaves and cowards in the dark!..." - it just gets better. Still going on repeat. ^.^

Well, yes, and I had an internal debate about that. See, the chord technically belongs to Sauron. But then when I put the flute's note, it sounded a bit like a string snap, and musically it was...

Never go to Tolkien for council, for he will say both no and yes. ;)

If a woodchuck can chuck wood, how many Finwes can a Finwe Finwe? ;)

As long as they are somehow separate and recognizable, doesn't matter to me how they are written - just wanted to make sure they don't become the same chord!

Would it help if I made the recordings equal to the time of the music (ie start recording on the first note)? Because for Melian I haven't been doing that, as she only starts singing 2 stanzas in.

No answers, just thoughts.

3. Sounds like repetition is in order. Maybe a name structurally akin to, say, Fingolfin, or Ghan-buri-ghan. But don't have one to fit the clue in a way that makes...
