Forgotten History

Acharor: There’s an even easier way to get Fëanor and his kids out of the Doom of Mandos. The exact wording is “On the House of Fëanor the wrath of the Valar lieth from the West unto the uttermost East, and upon all that will follow them it shall be laid also.” So that means, all Fëanor has to do is say “I know my name as Vinice!” And he will no longer be Fëanor, nor will his family be the House of Fëanor; and thus, they will no longer be bound to the Doom of Mandos! There’s a lot of power in a name here! Finwë needs to raise that baby right this time! Míriel‘s right next-door with Irmo, she’ll definitely want to help! Fëanor needs to go meet his mommy! Work smarter, not harder!

Norawarth: And If he is too prideful to do that, he can always read your essays.

Solnishko: Or be gobbled up by Mandos’ new best friend!

Acharor: Or die back to life by the Dragon Gun! He should ask his son Maedhros how death by fire works. And then imagine it’s ten times worse.

Solnishko: And the best curse to lay on Fëanor of all: will Nerdanel even take him back? After everything he did to her and her kids! Between him and the Skitty, I think she’ll prefer the Skitty! I’d rather have a Skitty than Fëanor, too!

Norawarth: Indeed!

Harnor: I only had two siblings to get under control, Maedhros had six! And his brothers were not only taught, but encouraged, to kill things! My god, Fëanor’s an idiot!

Norawarth: Well, those apples did not fall far from that tree…

Solnishko: My brothers may fight like fire and ice, but they shaped up eventually. Maybe Fëanor and his kids can too! They just need a better education!

Norawarth: I think the best thing you are giving our gods is not Pokémon, new knowledge, or a child; you are giving them choices! They could only come up with one punishment for the Kin-Slayers, you came up with several! Including the Curse of Calemir!

Calemir: That’s right, I did!

Solnishko: And sometimes, the best choice is “all of the above!!!”

Calemir: That’s right, it is!

Beowulf: Some people have enough memories to write an autobiography. Harnor doesn’t. Sometimes, it’s better to forget painful memories than to hang onto them.

“In life you must write your own story, or one will be written for you.”

A.J. Garces, an illustrator that google refuses to find a wikipedia article for.

“If you don’t like someone’s story, write your own.”

Chinua Achebe, the father of modern African literature.

“When we deny the story, it defines us. When we own the story, we can write a brave new ending.”

Brené Brown; researcher, lecturer, author, and podcaster.

“There comes a point in your life when you need to stop reading other people’s books and write your own.”

Albert Einstein, the only scientist most non-scientists recall off the top of their heads once they’re out of school and don’t have to learn anything new about science.

“Write your story as it needs to be written. Write it honestly, and tell it as best you can. I’m not sure that there are any other rules. Not ones that matter.”

Neil Gaiman, an author of a book I read in high school, and two more books I bought a while back but haven’t read yet. As Albert Einstein said, I need to stop reading other people’s books and write my own! I also need to stop looking up quotes on writing autobiographies.

“Remember that you’re a living, breathing novel, literally writing your own story. Your very own authentically personal piece of art. It’s pretty glorious.”

Victoria Erickson, an author / creative writing coach with a website.

“Surely the whole point of writing your own life story is to be as honest as you possibly can, revealing everything about yourself that is most private and probably most interesting for that very reason.”

Judith Krantz, an author who, like Tolkien, is also dead.

“I know you like to be in control and you operate a lot from fear but you have to break the bounds of your past, Nicole, and rewrite the story you’ve been telling yourself based off of others experiences. You have to create your own experience, write your own story.”

Kathryn Perez, the author whose quote I hate most yet also need most at the moment. I told myself I needed to stop looking up quotes on how to write autobiographies, and look where it got me!
