So, I finally caught up with FYD and I've been wondering: when Mairon was in the hospital, post Lúthien and Huan murder attempt, did Aulë and/or Yavanna go visit him? Did they even care? Or know?
Funny you should ask–I’ve actually been thinking about this a lot.
Yes, Aulë and Yavanna know. Rumors of what happened got back to them around the end of Mairon’s stay in the hospital. Yes, they care. Mairon lived with them when he was in school, and he was close to both of them, particularly Yavanna. Despite the fact that they had a pretty significant falling out, Aulë and Yavanna absolutely care about what happens to him and were upset to hear he’d been hurt. They didn’t go to see him, though. Yavanna wanted to, but Aulë convinced her that they wouldn’t be welcome. (He was mostly right, although Mairon probably wouldn’t have minded seeing Yavanna.)
I wouldn’t put it past Yavanna to check up on him now that he’s back, though.
