Excellent theory!

I think that's a wonderful idea. And I loved the Goldberry as water spirit element.

So if we think of Tom Bombadil as an incarnation of the Music of the Ainur, and Ungoliant as the Discord of Melkor - which, incidentally, is brilliant: Ungoliant turns against Melkor because the very nature of the Discord is that it has no sense of loyalty, even to that which created it, and anything that does show loyalty is not the truest evil, which I'm sure Tolkien mentions regarding Sauron and the other followers of Melkor - sorry, what was I saying? Oh yes: could there be an incarnation of the Third Theme? Are all Children of Iluvatar incarnations of that theme, or are they merely begot of it? IS IT FRODO? Tongue


Then Manwė and Yavanna parted for that time, and Yavanna returned to Aulė; and he was in his smithy, pouring molten metal into a mould. 'Eru is bountiful,' she said. 'Now let thy children beware! For there shall walk a power in the forests whose wrath they will arouse at their peril.'

'Nonetheless they will have need of wood,' said Aulė, and he went on with his smith-work.
