Galadriel takes the Master Ring

In Reply To
If Saruman had remained good, but it is Galadriel who is tempted and falls into evil? That might be an interesting twist a dark Elven queen. And I always felt that there was something about Galadriel that she might have fallen into evil. Sorry, Aragorn!

If Lady Galadriel accepted the One Ring from Frodo (let's set aside the idea of a Saruman who remains unfallen for this as one variable too many).

1. As one of the greatest among the Wise at the end of the Third Age, Galadriel might be able to rally the Free Peoples behind her.

2. If Galadriel cannot command the armies of the Enemy, she might at least be able to dominate them enough to demoralize them.

3. With the Ring she might be able to banish, possibly even destroy, the Nazgûl. In time she might even be able to command them.

4. Sauron cannot be destroyed for as long as the Ring remains whole. He probably cannot even be banished to beyond the confines of Arda as was Morgoth. He would remain a hidden threat, scheming to regain his Ring.

5. The power of the Three Rings would remain intact and the Rings of Water and Air could continue to preserve the realms of Lothlórien and Rivendell. However, because of the influence of the Master Ring, Lórien would become stagnant and would eventually become corrupted. The Elves of Lórien would either abandon the Golden Wood or in time be corrupted themselves.

6. Galadriel's prophesy to Frodo about herself would gradually come true. She would turn to evil, but her charisma and power would prevent any effective opposition. All would love her and despair.

"Far, far below the deepest delvings of the Dwarves, the world is gnawed by nameless things. Even Sauron knows them not. They are older than he."
