2. Authors note's

Authors note's:


Arafinwe Ingoldo = Finarfin
Nolofinwe = Fingolfin
Irien = Lalwen
Moringotho = Morgoth

I used the Quenya names throughout, as I thought it would make more sense in the context of the story.

The name that Feanor calls Morgoth is what Tolkien described as the ancient name of him, such as Feanor would use (see HoME 10 or 11).

The italic writing is used to show a memory of a previous conversation or speech. Most of which was taken from HoME 10 and 11, but also from the Silmarillion. The conversation with Findis is my invention though; as is Nerdanel’s plea to her husband, though of course Tolkien did suggest the wording in the Shibboleth.

The sister’s that I have mentioned are canon characters and appear in HoME 10,11 and 12. The inclusion of Feanor’s second sister Faniel is because my thought is that Tolkien forgot that he had already written her into the genealogy when he wrote the Shibboleth; feel free to disagree but that’s what I believe.
