sauron-fan-art

So, I recently joined tumblr, and in doing so I realized there is a very large tolkien/silmarillion/lotr fandom with some amazing art.  And in discovering that, I found there is an awesome fan-theory in which Tar-Miriel is the Witch-King of Angmar.   One thing led to another and here’s a WIP of Sauron giving Tar-Miriel one of the nine rings of power.

My OCs are sulking in a corner right now, but I regret nothing.

The Seduction of Mairon


“While Morgoth still stood, Sauron did not seek his own supremacy, but worked and schemed for another, desiring the triumph of Melkor, whom in the beginning he had adored.”

A fan piece for my favorite beings in the Tolkien universe. The Valar Melkor seduces the Maiar Mairon (The Admirable), one of the great craftsmen of the household of Aulë. A being that loved order and coordination, Mairon was attracted to the power and masterful planning of Melkor and so fell to his influence in complete devotion as Sauron. Perhaps one of the most tragic and beautiful of all relations in the Silmarillion.

Sauron became his master’s most devoted and capable servant and gave his all for Melkor’s triumph. He became Melkor’s chief lieutenant above all others in his service. Sauron was cunning and strong and became a master of illusions and shapeshifting in the First Age.

Behind Melkor and Mairon stands the image of the monstrous wolf-like form that Sauron assumed when he believe he was destined to defeat Huan the Wolfhound.
