A delightful tale of scholars discussing the relevance of sources. One might think these events are shrouded by the bitterness, the dispair or the regrets of the surviving witnesses.
Still, there is one source which may be explored : the archives of the Ered Luin Dwarves. But would they share them ? And would such an "alien" point of view, bring reliable cross-reference?

Author's Response:

Thank you very much! Yes, one might.

Dawn Felagund has written a story about Pengolodh visiting Khazad-dum (Moria) and discovering some traditions there that went back to the Ered Luin settlements--she also shows him having a hard time fitting the information in, because it doesn't at all agree with his point of view! The story is called "Song of Stone", I think.

As always, a smashing and insightful work- I enjoyed that sense of historial bias not being deliberate but a bit of a mish mash and guesswork, personal experience an dpersepctives being the reason for the canonical version.

 

And then there's this:

His voice drifted off. He was gazing across distances that were, to Bilbo, unimaginable. Who knew what he was remembering, just now, who had been born in Beleriand before it drowned and seen Eregion before its fall? Then he came back to the present and smiled at Bilbo.

 

Lovely moment that brings it to the very personal.

 



Author's Response:

Thank you! That agrees with the feeling I get from the canon, personally. There seems to be bias there, but it's not entirely consistent.

I'm glad you liked the description of that moment!
