9th October 2014 (14:45)

If you need to find out if the Valar are keeping secrets from you, who better to ask than the rebellious Vala who doesn't get along with the other ones?

There's no way this can go wrong. :)

Part 159: Stirring the pot

Next time: Part 160: Revelations

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.

Oh my....I'm loving this. But can you have Malkor carrying a fan while he gossips like this? It would make my day. Just joking though ;-)

It's a bit strange how they talk about inheritance with immortal creatures. Then again, maybe they are allready looking far into the future of Arda, when Finwe might grow weary of living and go to Mandos on his own accord.

On that accord I never liked the fact that the Eldar were monarchists, it's not a very good system of government, as the story will show.

Do you want Melkor to start his sentences with 'La, sir' as well?

Elves' concern for inheritance is rather odd - presumably Tolkien was simply basing it on the themes of Anglo-Saxon literature, despite its inappropriateness. I'm working on the assumption that immortal Elves might like a change of scenery now and again, so it's conceivable that after 4000 years of being King of the Noldor Finwë might chose to give the crown to his son and go off to do something else for a few millennia. There's not really many other ways to explain it.
