I will go in and sit with her, it’ll take 4 hours and they said 1 or 2 people were welcome.

My mother starts chemo Thursday. They’re not sure it’ll do any good, but any good thoughts appreciated.

The Condensed Silmarillion. (Which is not so short any more.) by cheekybeak

Chapter notes:
Not that happy with this but have spent hours tinkering and it is not getting any better. Sorry about that.
Thank you to everyone who reviewed my first chapter. That was amazing!!

Aulë liked to build things. You name it, he built it.

But you can have too much of a good thing.
There are only so many mountains you can build before they all start looking the same.

He was lonely, his wife spent her time talking to the flowers.

He decided the best thing to do was to build himself some children to amuse him.

The usual way of it Aulë , is to make the children with your wife. But strangely, despite nearly all of them being married, it seems the Valar weren't really into procreating. I guess we can say thank goodness because then we would have even more of them to deal with.

Aulë had a vague idea that Eru was planning on creating children but what would they look like?
Aulë gave it some thought.
"I know. Eru is sure to be creating short, hairy people, I'll build some too"

Turns out Aulë couldn't have been more wrong. Short and hairy wasn't the way to go. What a surprise.

Unfortunately for Aulë Eru found out and he wasn't best pleased.

Think Aulë, think. He is an all seeing, all knowing creator. Odds are he is going to see you.
How did he ever think he was going to just slip those dwarves into the elves without Eru noticing?

Eru: "What's with that Elf over there? He's very short, and hang on a minute, I think he has a beard? That's not right"
Aulë : " Oh I am not sure my lord. Must be something in the water. I wouldn't worry about it if I were you."

So Eru confiscated the dwarves.

And poor Aulë had to go back to trying to prise Yavanna away from her trees for company.


Actually........ That didn't go so well.

Seriously those two need some marriage guidance counselling.
Chapter end notes:
Will try and make the next chapter better. I promise!
