Did the Noldor deserting Aman meet the Sindar in West Beleriand? Or Doraiath? Was Feanor their lord?

Sorry. Neither West Beleriand nor Doraiath was the land where the mingling of the Noldor and the Sindar came to pass soonest nor was Feanor the lord of that land.

Hmmm.... Perhaps if I had thought of taking a glance at Silma rather than making a blind guess. Looking it up... Ah-ha. During the Long Peace, the forces of Morgoth were restrained, and all of Beleriand prospered and grew rich. In many parts of the land, the Sindar and the Noldor became welded into one people, but this occured soonest in Nevrast, the region west of Dor-lomin, beyond Ered Lomin. Turgon was their lord.

In the War of Wrath, Morgoth unleashed his terrible dragons on the hosts of the Valar. Who was it that defeated them and in so doing dramatically turned the tables?

The Noldor coming to the northern coasts of Aman were met by a dark messenger, who foretold their fate. Who are the two people that this could possibly be?

Oedipus killed his father Laius and then (unknowingly) married his mother Jocasta (or Iocaste if you prefer). When he found out the horrible truth, he blinded himself and Jocasta committed suicide by hanging herself. I don`t see any parallel with a Vala though.

Look into the http://www.fortunecity.co.uk/library/classiccourt/77/Mirror of Desire.</a> </p>

If this is the answer to your question, Galpsi, then I have to admit it is one of the best here ever:
Oedipus means &quot;swollen foot&quot;, because he was stabbed in his feet as a newborn child, and later again. The Vala who got stabbed in his foot was Melkor, rather Morgoth, in the fight against Fingolfin.

Well done, Sharku, I think you are right. This was definitely one of the best questions asked yet.

Look into the http://www.fortunecity.co.uk/library/classiccourt/77/Mirror of Desire.</a> </p>

I'll wait for Galp-man's reassurement. He's not infamous as a thread-killer as I am, so he'll comment soon I guess.

Sorry, my wife is in town this weekend and I've been neglecting you all for her company. Morgoth is exactly what I was after, Sharku. Well done. Ask us!

Who was the first (and prob. only) vegetarian among the Children of Ilķvatar we know of?

I do not know if he was the first, but Beorn neither ate his own livestock, nor did he hunt or eat wild animals. It was said he lived mostly on cream and honey, and apparently he thrived thereupon.
