May I please ask if you would watch an depiction of The Downfall of Numenor where Sauron-Annatar were played by Miss Natalie Dormer? (It's an unusual casting choice, I admit but I read it somewhere and just can't quite shake the feeling that it would WORK).

Honestly, I would probably watch a depiction of The Downfall of Numenor where Sauron was played by a small tin of baked beans.

Natalie Dormer would be amazing as Sauron.



"But Sauron in his tower was aware of them, and doubt took him; for they went in haste, and stayed not to report their deeds, as was commanded to all the servants of Morgoth that passed that way. Therefore he sent to waylay them, and bring them before him.

"Thus befell the contest of Sauron and Felagund which is renowned. For Felagund strove with Sauron in songs of power, and the power of the King was very great; but Sauron had the mastery, as is told in the Lay of Leithian"

Yeah my sense of humor is somewhat regrettable.

This is the same wig in all the pics. The lighting is just doing weird things.

I’m using it for Gloin and later Maedhros. It’s long for Gloin but it’s soooo beautiful, I can’t bring myself to alter it. It’s seems almost tangle free too, I’ve been finger combing it and swishing it for hours and it still feels like it is straight from the box.

The beard is a crappy Halloween thing but I am going to use it as a base and add wefts to it to make it longer and fuller and ready to style.

It is told that a seer and harp-player of Brethil named Glirhuin made a song, saying that the Stone of the Hapless should not be defiled by Morgoth nor ever thrown down, not though the sea should drown all the land; as after indeed befell, and still Tol Morwen stands alone in the water beyond the new coasts that were made in the days of the wrath of the Valar. But Húrin does not lie there, for his doom drove him on, and the Shadow still followed him.

Among Melkor’s servants that have names the greatest was that spirit whom the Eldar called S a u r o n, or Gorthaur the Cruel. In his beginning he was of the Maiar of Aulë, and he remained mighty in the lore of that people. In all the deeds of Melkor the Morgoth upon Arda, in his vast works and in the deceits of his cunning, Sauron had a part, and was only less evil than his master in that for long he served another and not himself. But in after years he rose like a shadow of Morgoth and a ghost of his malice, and walked behind him on the same ruinous path down into the Void.


The land of Nevrast lay at the coast of the Great Sea (Belegaer) in Middle-earth. Nevrast was the centre of an elven kingdom of Turgon for about a century until F.A. 125, when the people began their trek to Gondolin. Turgon’s capital (and it seems the only city of Nevrast) was Vinyamar. The land was not permanently inhabited after that, and indeed was utterly abandoned until Tuor came there, guided by Ulmo.


Glorfindel was tall and straight; his hair was of shining gold, his face fair and young and fearless and full of joy; his eyes were bright and keen, and his voice like music; on his brow sat wisdom, and in his hand was strength.
