Silmarillion: First Encounter by wolfanita Silmarillion: First Encounter by wolfanita
From Tolkien's " Silmarillion":

Tolkien purists must be strong now, for I reread the Silmarillion after ten years or so, and of course my deformed mind came up with some gags.

When I read about the first encounter of elves and dwarves and that the elves where "quite surprised" cause they thought there where no other folks besides them, this rushed to my mind - never miss the chance to mock an elf.

Yep, the first time you meet someone other than your own kind, don't say "Hello!" and be friendly or curious, jump into your friend's arms and scream in confusion and terror as you point a finger at the complete madness before your previously virgin eyes XD

I can only imagine what the others must be thinking about this. Those poor dwarves were only being friendly (well, one was, the other....well, apathy's better than hostility, right), and one elf just freaks out and panics, while the other just tries to keep balanced with the extra weight while looking totally gobsmacked XD

They'd think that elves are idiots, and reading the Silmarillion, they are pretty right. ;)

Nice, I could see this happening! :icondragonlaugh:
I like Dwarves and Elves, I like Dwarves more. They value their beards,
Although Gimli and Legoas became friends, but it it's known as a strange friendship, (since dwarves and elves don't normality get along since they are very different from one another, they have never have gone to war though Dwarves vs Elves I mean). They don't trust each other, my favorite Dwarf being Gimli. Gimli is funny as well and interesting. Link: youtu.be/9LDJzksLB_0

By the time I write this you have probably moved on from Silmarillion artworks but I still look very much forward to all your ideas.
This intro promises a lot of fun.
I don't know what made me laugh harder, the nonchalant "Morning!" or the elf's reaction. Anyway, it's just priceless. :D

Thank you! :D What, no, I haven't moved on. I still have plenty of gags in my note book. The Hobbit is just more "current" right now, so I draw those gags at the moment.
But there's still lot of other stuff on my list.

In all honesty, though, if all you've ever known of is other elves, and then you saw a short hairy person with hordes of hair cascading from his MOUTH, you'd probably be quite surprised, too.

I liked the first elf to meet humans. He found them sleeping in the forest, spontaneously serenaded for them, and that was that.

Never said I would not have been surprised, too - it's just so typical that they've never even thought there could be other folks.
(As far as I remember, Tolkien described Cirdan for example as bearded - so elves knew beards before :))
