Re: the debate turns canonical

lindil: Thank you for the suggestions on what threads to look at. I'd certainly like to give feedback where and I can and have some input into this.

Tar-elenion: As I think about it more, your idea starts to make some more sense. If it were used, though, it would have to be done carefully. I still don't think that Fingolfin would have outright claimed the high kingship, at least not before Alqualonde and/or Feanor's abandonment of his host. Certainly there was strife between them during the whole Darkening of Valinor episode. Nonetheless, any narrative incorporating the material in the Shibboleth would have to be very careful not to contradict Fingolfin's oath, in words or in spirit.
