I'm not intentionally adding anything that isn't mentioned or hinted at in the script. Everything I have added is me merely filling in the blanks for themes/ideas that are already present in the outline. Any of my own brand spanking new ideas/suggestions I have put in brackets or asked as questions. Everything not in brackets has it's origins in the outline, podcast, or books I assure you. Please tell me if you feel that this is not the case in a particular instance.Episode 2 is *much* more like what we intended, I think - we must have given you more to go on there .
I would say that the new details that have appeared are: the conversation with/about Ungoliant (she was just there in the shadows and they missed her in our original discussion, but this was debated later), the episode taking place in the evening/at night in Rivendell, and Manwë's much more proactive role in advancing his agenda. I am fine with these alterations, though I did like the idea of saving the 'hey, nice coastlines' moment until Yavanna arrived, as she was unaware of the conflict, and the comment seems more spontaneous, an innocent remark on the unintended beauty that contributes to the 'work together!' message without being didactic.
For instance, the conversation with Ungoliant was an extrapolation of the sentences "Some of the Ainur do not respond to the summons. Ungoliant is missed." These are placed right between the summary of the Oromë visit and Ulmo's complaint of the Almaren project. In my reading of this paragraph, I associated the Ungoliant sentences with the Oromë encounter. (Apparently, they were supposed to be in context of the Almaren project. My bad.) I think having the scene contextualizes the later observation at Almaren (that not all of the Maiar have decided to show) while simultaneously developing the character of Ungoliant. But since that wasn't actually the intention, I will make a note of it in the script.
(See guys, these forums prove that communication is, in fact, key. Isn't it great that we can do all of this together instead of all by our lonesomes.)
