Reflections after re-reading bits of the Silmarillion...

...
The Swan-ships of the Teleri didn't have sails at first, they were pulled by literal swans. No wonder they were quite so pissed at the Noldor when they wanted to take them. :s

"Then the swans drew the white ships of the Teleri over the windless sea..."

So what was the point of their wives and daughters making the sails later? There wasn't any wind. *confused!*

Also, why is the badge of Finarfin's house two serpents crowned with golden flowers etc. (i.e Ring of Barahir)? There clearly must be a difference between heraldry used by the Noldor and the 'badges' used.

More comments possibly forthcoming. I say possibly because I seem to say things and then never get around to it. >.
