    That's totally fair.

    I can definitely see that. By the way, I probably should have checked with you first, but I suggested your Keep Helevorn to Professor Olsen last Thursday, since he was going to use Ted Nasmith's as a background. If that's fine with you, Yay! If not, I apologize, and I'll make sure to avoid...

    I'd be interested in that, though it would be tough to avoid a circumstance where we were telling the story of "how nothing happened".

    One thing I'd like to avoid is something that reminds viewers of the fight between Eowyn and the Witch King. Flails are kind of done a bit weirdly in media in a way that isn't really anything like history. I'd be willing to talk about it, but I'd want to be careful.

    By the by, I've included the names of anyone who has assisted with the editing in the "Edited by" byline. If you don't want to be there, just let me know.

    Firstly, I love your depiction. Secondly, our hosts have very specific thoughts on the mindset of Fingolfin leading up to the duel. My own interpretation of the text is more or less what you're describing here, but the hosts have gone in a more hope-centric direction.

    If that's the general consensus, I'll go with it without a fuss. But we would likely have to add scenes to manage a longer run time.

    If we have to, but we certainly hadn't planned on it. One of the reasons the battle starts in E12 is to avoid a two-hour finale.

    I know, this is my ham-fisted attempt to draw you deeper into this process. ;)

    Right, our plotting stage for these episodes was definitely during the script discussions, which in this case was months ago. I'll try to put something together as far as spelling out a bit better what the character arcs are.

    It is indeed a feature of Tolkienian story-telling that the plot drives the action rather than the character arcs, and I can see why that might be difficult from a more modern literary lens. The dilemma is the attack from Angband. The rising conflict is the battle. The resolution is the end of...

    This has been something of which we have accused Finrod through much of this season, and an accusation the Fëanoreans leveled at the Valar, whom Finrod was emulating.

    Status Update: In response to some of the commentary both here and in the document, I have reworked the scene at Ladros to illustrate a bit more chaos, and make the goals of everyone involved a bit more clear. I've also reworked the scene with Orodreth and Finrod later in the episode to make...

    Yeah, I've been doing an experiment with these episodes, seeing if writing them in documents people could see and comment on as I went would help the process.
