yes, it does [In reply to] Can't Post

But it always just strikes me when I read that so many of the powerful Valar just abandon the rest of Middle earth. Sure Orome and Yavanna go out here and there, and who can keep Ulmo in one place without a tall glass, but the rest just sit around the pretty lights of the trees and wonder to themselves when the Children of Illuvatar might come. Just seems they got tired of dealing with Melkor so fast and just kind of brished some of his stuff off like an unliked sibling. "Oh thats just Melkor filling the dark with terror, don't mind him." or "Yeah all those rumbles and flashes, its just Melkor again playing in his room."

Now, I'm not in any way saying that this is a hole in the plot or story, just a frustration I have with the Valar. They want to get all upset later on, but how many times did they have the chance to be rid of Melkor, or imprison him only for him to get out again. And then when we get to the thrid age, rather than being about their purpsoe of protecting and making sure Arda is a good place, they stay hidden from everyone and pout because the Noldor decided to live and the Numenorians became greedy. They just seem like children in their mindset (most of them, I actually like Aule and Tulkas and Orome). Think about it, Melkor was let loose, and not only that but the Maiar who follow him are jst ignored, and the Children of Illuvatar are born to darkness and fear for a huge part of them. (Do I sound like Feanor yet? Anyone want to steal a boat and leave?)




Wait till we get to the Vanyar I have a whole other statement about them (If You're so awesome why don't you come and whoop Sauron).
