Summary: Concerning Manwë and Melkor in the beginnings of Arda.  Answering the prompt “Bequeath.”


When the Ainur descended to dwell upon Arda, Manwë spoke unto Melkor, saying:

“You have made all manner of fires and other things, which have served their purpose.  Be content now and do not seek to hinder our efforts.”

And Melkor answered with contempt.  “‘Your’ efforts?  Neither is your host so faithful as you believe, nor is my work complete.  I–and mine–shall continue to effect my purpose upon Arda.”

“Then would you have the Eruhíni inherit a world of pain and trouble?”

“I would have them exist within reality, which does not exclude those things Lord Manwë dislikes.”
