Allie, this is delightful -- and I sincerely hope the muse returns to provide us with more!
In my last re-read of LotR, I did find myself catching on all the little allusions that Tolkien makes of the Valar 'participating', in their own way, in the event of the Ring War, and I found myself wondering about what they must have done during the Ring War, and in the events of Arda following the First Age. So I do love this premise!
That it is done in freestyle verse - always an iffy style, but not so here - adds strength to the pieces, and a lovely touch of wry humour.
The Homer quote is brilliantly appropriate - and how you've brought that to the Valier just as much so: "Later, as She examines a divine fingernail".
"She smiles, pleased, and
a galaxy flares to life."
The following piece works off of the "Varda" piece so well. I adore your characterisations, and how you've made these Queens of the Valar so -- accessible.
I think I'm a Yavanna fan here -
So she spited him with many
*dies* Yes, Bad Aragorn! ;)
I wonder who might possibly be next - Nienna? I would like to see what you make of her emo-weepiness. I hope we will see more of this soon - in the meantime, thank you for sharing! Enjoyed this very much.
