Mission accomplished! Or not?

You can't go home again... or can you?

This was a very strange interlude, and I think Mairon's sister is right in thinking that he's much more suited to life outside his Vala's household, but at least now if he surrenders someday, he knows that he'll get a trial by the Valar, not an out-of-hand execution by his best friend. (And we know that he's been profoundly influenced by the tale of Melkor's old cell, at least!)

Any chance of seeing more of Sauron, his undead goons, and perhaps even his longtime idol Melkor?

Oh, Curumo/Saruman's having *such* a bad day! He'll never be first Maia to Aul, and he'll never get his hands on that "historical record" of Ring Lore, I'm thinking!

*gloats*

I'm guessing that this "fight" too was cathartic for Mairon/Sauron, though not for Angmar, who clearly doesn't realize how much his master needed release from the tension of having undergone what he thought would be his arrest and trial, only to find out that it was all a hoax designed to "test" him. (Pity that Angmar couldn't have had a go at that toad-eating Curumo/Saruman as well, though.)

After seeing domestic life in Aul's household, and how Mairon is treated by his master, the attraction that life with Melkor would have offered is actually pretty obvious. Kind of like being one of the late Boyd Coddington's overworked, under-appreciated hot rod mechanics, and being lured away by his rival Chip Foose to work on cooler projects, for more money and more artistic freedom. (Coddington never took anyone back who left him, either.) Just sayin'.

Author's Response: Thanks! I like your analogy, it really brings it to life. I modeled the lives of the Maiar on the lives of servants in the Middle Ages, or to a lesser extent, the servants in an English Country House. This is just what Maiar life is like, and since they dont know any differently, they dont mind. I added a paragraph to make the point that Enws home life under Manw isnt different from Mairons under Aul. Enw doesnt get beaten as severely, but only because Manw is intellectual whereas Aul is physical. Neither of them are cruel, its just how things are done. Melkors household is the closest to being egalitarian, but thats a result of how small his group is, not because he decided to be different.

Not so much a "reunion" for Mairon, as an "intervention" for Sauron: I just hope it isn't too late.... and for poor Angmar as well!!

Hi,

I have to say I love your Sauron :) and your witch-king they are both very amusing and completely evil :)

hmm... I wonder how Aule will re-act when he opens his door to find Sauron standing on the doorstep, so to speak?

Please update soon, cant wait for more!!
