21st July 2014 (19:22)

Melkor's is an evil laugh. But the Valar (except Ulmo) (and possibly Námo) don't realise that.


Part 143: Done his time


Next time: Part 144: Signs and portents

Chibis by tektek.org
Original story by and copyright to J R R Tolkien, ed. C Tolkien: Primarily based on the Silmarillion, but incorporating ideas from the 12-volume History of Middle Earth series.

MELKOR: (*sings*) I've paid my dues
Time after time.
I've done my sentence
But committed no crime.
And bad mistakes ‒
I've made a few.
I've had my share of sand kicked in my face
But I've come through.
(And I need just go on and on, and on, and on)
We are the champions, my friends,
And we'll keep on fighting 'til the end.
We are the champions.
We are the champions.
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions of the world.

(And don't even think of making puns about "Freddie Melkory"!)

Actually, I did have a different song in mind for the
title:

I'm coming home, I've done my time
Now I've got to know what is and isn't mine,
If you receive my letter tellin' you I'd soon be free,
Then you'll know just what to do, if you still want me,
If you still want me.
Tie a yellow ribbon `round the old oak tree,
It's been three long yearsages, do you still want me?

If I don't see a ribbon, round the old oak tree,
I'll stay on the bus, forget about us, put the blame on me
If I don't see a ribbon `round the old oak tree.
