In the Silmarillion, Tolkien described Melkor as the greatest of the Ainur. Here is a short one-shot of my ideas as an author myself on how Eru Iluvatar viewed him. That darker side of imagination has sometimes inspired me to some of my best fanfiction.
Here it is: proof positive that I'm officially a Silmarillion fanfic author. Here's a Maeglin POV poem about him, his love for his cousin Idril, and the lengths to which he'll go and the depths he'll sink to in order to obtain her for his very own. Canon.
Ar-Pharazôn is not as easily manipulated as in the original Tale, and Sauron ends up forced to accompany the King when he attacks Valinor. Finrod refuses to flee before his old foe, and Ainur, Eldar, and Mortal will all be involved in the moment that changes everything. Alternate end to the Second Age.
Idril finds her cousin Maeglin's advances creepy and she wishes that he would just leave her alone. Somewhat angsty poem from the POV of a very weirded-out and kinda anime Idril. Ranted - er, written in Japanese with an English translation. PG for canon.
