It would be strange watching any adaption for me, so used to fanfic, lol. I would be keep thinking of the pairings I read and scratching me head :D

I'd really love to see Celebrimbor and Annatar in the Second Age...and maybe Gil-Galad too...although it would be weird seeing him without his Istelion! ;-)

Not the Silmarillion, that would be a separate agreement if it happened at all, but the Appendices are open it seems

I'm always baffled by what is and isn't on the table, rights-wise, but if Christopher T has resigned, does that mean we could get an adaptation of the Silm (or parts of it)?

Article on The One Ring.net - Christopher Tolkien has resigned as director of the Tolkien Estate. This could change 'everything' to quote.

Royd Tolkien just confirmed it on his twitter account. No details other than that.

I should think they'll have actors falling over themselves for this. If it's done well the fandom will go boom!

The One Ring.net is a good place to get the latest.

I found the link. It all seems very vague atm. I look forward to hearing more once they've got news on story, etc.

The Condensed Silmarillion. (Which is not so short any more.) by cheekybeak

Chapter notes:
Not that happy with this but have spent hours tinkering and it is not getting any better. Sorry about that.
Thank you to everyone who reviewed my first chapter. That was amazing!!
AulŽ liked to build things. You name it, he built it.

But you can have too much of a good thing.
There are only so many mountains you can build before they all start looking the same.

He was lonely, his wife spent her time talking to the flowers.

He decided the best thing to do was to build himself some children to amuse him.

The usual way of it AulŽ , is to make the children with your wife. But strangely, despite nearly all of them being married, it seems the Valar weren't really into procreating. I guess we can say thank goodness because then we would have even more of them to deal with.

AulŽ had a vague idea that Eru was planning on creating children but what would they look like?
AulŽ gave it some thought.
"I know. Eru is sure to be creating short, hairy people, I'll build some too"

Turns out AulŽ couldn't have been more wrong. Short and hairy wasn't the way to go. What a surprise.

Unfortunately for AulŽ Eru found out and he wasn't best pleased.

Think AulŽ, think. He is an all seeing, all knowing creator. Odds are he is going to see you.
How did he ever think he was going to just slip those dwarves into the elves without Eru noticing?

Eru: "What's with that Elf over there? He's very short, and hang on a minute, I think he has a beard? That's not right"
AulŽ : " Oh I am not sure my lord. Must be something in the water. I wouldn't worry about it if I were you."

So Eru confiscated the dwarves.

And poor AulŽ had to go back to trying to prise Yavanna away from her trees for company.


Actually........ That didn't go so well.

Seriously those two need some marriage guidance counselling.
Chapter end notes:
Will try and make the next chapter better. I promise!
