Darkening of Valinor/ Rape of the Silmarils
[non-mt /old style version]

I think we have here a clear case of 282 - 295 being the final version written,
{with the exceptions of some of the annals of Aman being used in Rape of the Silm. [ hereafter RotS]}. So I am proposing we :

A&gt;&gt;each choose a couple of the 8 sections [Saulotus, you are overseeing? 4X2 =8 so feel free...] and compare it w/ I,IV,V, and 77 and see if there are nonconflicting details we want to include or other changes we need to ponder. Work up our individuual sections. Using the bracketing method mentioned in the Barrow's rules of Order earlier[?]
B&gt;&gt; Email the drafted portions to each other and then,
review and discuss our versions and then,
C&gt;&gt; see how it all goes together. ratify or modify and move on to the next one {Sun and Moon , I recall was agreed upon}

so please comment on A-C if you are fine w/ this approach pick 2 sections [ I will wait till the 2 or 3 of you pick your sections and do what is left over.
If I am overreaching the approach ,lets get it squared up.<img src=smile.gif ALT="">


section 1
55/55a- the valar in council, pondering melkor's intent [ a very short section ]
section 2
55b-57a-Morgoth recruits ungoliant.returns to valinor [a pretty large section -goes way &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp past 77]
section 3
58 a-c --can include some of the original festal procession from I [If no one minds I would&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp like to put my hand to this one]
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp 58 d-f -- the destruction of the trees
section 5
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp 59-59b-- DoV and the response of the valar
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp
THE RAPE OF THE SILMARILS [see notes for using Annals of Aman [X] for source text in places]
section 6
1-- the lamentation of the valinoreans
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp
section 7
2-6 -- feanor and the valar

section 8
7-12 -- the telling of the death of finwe

Lindil is often found on posting on the New Silmarillion Canon Forum at the Barrowdowns discussion board. 'The dwindling Men of the West would often sit up late into the night, and awaken early before dawn- exchanging lore and wisdom such as they possessed , so that they should not fall back into the mean and low estate of those , who never knew or more sadly still, had indeed rebelled against the Light.' </p>
