Yes, there are more clans than just these - there are an infinite number. These are just the most powerful/well known of them all. I think my favorite to design was Lust Clan - thanks, http://nsfwshamecave.tumblr.com/ for letting me include your AU! if y’all are over 18, you should definitely check out her page. the Papyton comic she’s making is AMAZING! (For some reason it won’t let me tag her…weird.)
For some reason I decided one night that it’d be fun to rewrite smut scenes from other people’s fanfics as though they’re from a Victorian erotic novel (which I read sometimes because it’s interesting how many things have and haven’t changed in written erotica, also because it’s funny.)
My first (for there will be more) is a rewrite of this scene from @latent-thoughts‘ Ravished by a God (which is a great time btw).
Trigger Warning:Non-con (just to be safe?)
do you intend to ask of me?” you asked with much consternation, wrenching free
of the grasp Loki had laid upon you once you and he were within the closet.
“And how is it you came to be here so quickly?”
Doodles of Lust!Goth I did in class :’D
I plan on digitalize-ing the first one for @xdreamerofthestarsx , seeing as she asked for a full body of my design XD
Goth belongs to @nekophy
Lust!Goth’s design is mine
The meeting of Morgoth and Luthien is one of the high points of Luthien’s adventure - the elvish princess that stands down the greatest of the Ainur. It’s a fantastic scene. But many readers pick up a sort of weird vibe from Morgoth (weird mostly because it’s so different from Tolkien’s other typically sexless characters.) In the Silmarillion, we get only this vague line:
Then Morgoth looking upon her beauty conceived in his thought an evil lust, and a design more dark than any that had yet come into his heart since he fled from Valinor. Thus he was beguiled by his own malice, for he watched her, leaving her free for awhile, and taking secret pleasure in his thought.
None of the other versions of Luthien’s story are really much more specific, but the creepiness continues. In The Lay of Leithian (as included in The Lays of Beleriand), Tolkien says:
Then Morgoth laughed, but he was moved with suspicion, and said that her accursed race would get no soft words or favor in Angband. What could she do to give him pleasure, and save herself from the lowest dungeons? He reached out his mighty brazen hand but she shrank away.
And in The Book of Lost Tales (the oldest version of the story), Morgoth says:
Yet I will give a respite brief, a while to live, a little while, though purchased dear, to Luthien the fair and clear, a pretty toy for idle hour. In slothful gardens many a flower like thee the amorous gods are used honey-sweet to kiss, and cast then bruised, their fragrance loosing, under feet. But here we seldom find such sweet amid our labors long and hard, from godlike idleness debarred. And who would not taste the honey-sweet lying to lips, or crush with feet the soft cool tissue of pale flowers, easing like gods the dragging hours?
In each version, it’s soon after this that Luthien’s song and dance casts a spell of sleepiness on Morgoth (and while he’s asleep, Beren steals a silmaril from his crown.) And that’s the end of Morgoth and Luthien’s “relationship”, really. By all accounts creepy, unhealthy, and one-sided.
And while it seems pretty clear that Morgoth is experiencing some sort of lust for Luthien, it’s also implied (at least to my understanding), that his brand of lust is focused mainly on corrupting Luthien. Which is important because that ties in very strongly with Morgoth’s relationship with Arien (see this post for more details, but the basic idea is that, in another version of the story, Morgoth rapes Arien for the sole purpose of corrupting her and stealing her power.) Within that context, Morgoth’s creepy reaction to Luthien is - while still super creepy - at least more in character.
