    Of the coming of men into the west.
    We get to pick a good chapter if we volunteered to do a 'boring' chapter, which I did, I said put down for anything you need to, so I assume I can have this chapter.

    I fail to see what is funny about that Gil-galad:eek: . Gil-galad you just have no respect for Glorfindel the Great:D , I think maybe its jealousy, Glorfindel died heroically, you were killed by your own good friend.
