To Vê [Mandos] Fui [Nienna] came not much, for she laboured rather at the distilling of salt humours whereof are tears, and black clouds she wore and floated up that they were caught in the winds and went about the world, and their lightless webs settled ever and anon upon those that dwelt therein. Now these tissues were despairs and hopeless mourning, sorrows and blind grief. The hall that she loved best was one yet wider and more dark than Vê, and she too named it with her own name, calling it Fui. Therein before her black chair burnt a brazier with a single flickering coal, and the roof was of bats’ wings, and the pillars that upheld it and the walls were made of basalt. Thither come all the sons of Men to hear their doom […] and Fui reads their hearts. Some then she keeps in Mandos beneath the mountains and some she drives forth beyond the hills and Melko seizes them and bears them to Angamandi, or the Hells of Iron, where they have evil days. Some too, and these are the many, she sends aboard the black ship Mornië, who lieth ever and anon in a dark harbour of the North awaiting those times when the sad pomp winds to the beach down slow rugged paths from Mandos.
I thought you were, like, a nice Vala! All pity and compassion and mourning for the world! Teaching Gandalf! I mean. I.
What did I just read.
Clearly the AU where Melkor has a very different impact on her. xD
