Necromancer... Can't Post

Because the Dol Guldur plot excludes Bilbo, who conceivably is the authority
of the narrative which naturally involves his character, might the necromancer be
given the privilege of a monologue? We might for a short while imbibe the story
through his perspective. It could serve as a segue into the White Council's investigation and
assault on DG. For instance, the necromancer could narrate the motion of events,
forseeing the WC's suspicions and eventual agency. He could maybe contribute that
menacing, condescending air toward Gandalf and his naive friends -- how they will
think themselves as victors in driving him away from DG. Alas, he knows too well,
that his retreat is a mere feign. He will rebuild in Mordor and release his ire on the Free
Peoples from there. DG will not have yielded the extent of events moving against them.
Do you think the Necromancer could assume the narrative perspective to open the
WC's attack on DG? If so, would it be characteristic of the necromancer to assume
a self-righteous tone in a potential monologue? Thoughts?

By monologue, I don't imply that the necromancer would give a character speech in a scene.
It would imagine it more like a whispering narration to dark imagery with crouching, vague forms
and moving dark essences moving in the night. The rustle of dark reeds screeching in the wind against the eerie silence.
The Necromancer musing in the darkness of his dwelling...
