Feanor is a pit of smouldering coals... [In reply to] Can't Post

...and a CEO of a modern corporation! We are really getting some interesting images of Feanor! Excellent!

I think you are spot-on saying that tacticly Melkor is doing this to discredit Feanor later (taking credit in order to discredit, hmmm that Melkor is a devious fellow!) And I do think that Fenor is a hot coal pit, and I would add he probably isn't always aware of what makes him angry (or how much it makes him angry.) By the end of these discussions, I feel we should be able to work up a decent psychological profile of Feanor.

I like the idea that Feanor's skill galls Melkor. It fits because we know he is motivated by envy (how and why it manifests the way it does is still sometimes a mystery to me.)

"Noldor as tools, rather than people". Makes so much sense since we are told that all love has left Melkor. All he has left (it appears) are envy, hate, and a very devious mind. It makes sense that he would even use people as tools (tools - craft - Aule, yet again!)

                It's not easy for us Mortals to see it as a gift, is it? Brethil Send a private message to Brethil Mar 16 2013, 3:45pm
