Eru [In reply to] Can't Post

I think everyone's forgetting Eru himself. His hand is also certainly in play, probably even more than the Valar, since I see the Valar as being almost paralyzed, knowing the events transpiring were Eru's design. The Valar knew Eru had directly intervened with Gandalf, and parting Sauron's clouds would be within his ability too, perhaps even more so, since Sauron might have detected Varda, but certainly Eru could have slipped the cloud-parting incident past Sauron. The Dark Lord would certainly have detected Galadriel projecting power into the heart of Mordor.

I agreee it was most likely Varda intervening when Sam and Frodo called to her, but I see this as Varda jumping at the chance to do something..."What??! They prayed to me!"

            Part of the wonder of Tolkien is that the workings of 'magic' are hidden, but I think both Varda and Galadriel SilentLion Send a private message to SilentLion Dec 26 2012, 8:25pm

        Fascinating argument, and very well-constructed.// CuriousG Send a private message to CuriousG Dec 28 2012, 1:18am
            Thanks, CuriousG! I see I wrote "relatives" (of Frodo) instead of "parents." Plurmo Send a private message to Plurmo Dec 28 2012, 3:04am
