re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

I would love to see a story of what happened to Saruman after the grima murder. His spirit looked to the West- - the cold wind came and blew his spirit away...and it dissapated- ***BUT- was that really the end of him, as a personality? Did he really deserve the similar fate as Sauron, to be rendered a formless - or non-existent- spirit? Was he turned away by the Valar ?- that is what it appears to me. Would that render him into nothingness? If you think so, then you most likely would not be interested in this, as a challenge. I don't see the Valar "throwing him away" so to speak. He might not have been ready to be allowed back - but I seriously doubt they would have destroyed him totally. If you see another angle - then - please- share your creativity! Love to see this get a few treatments... Milly

 

 

Re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

LOL! I started a story about his a long, long time ago. Ironically, I just gave away the bit I had written to start a round-robin elsewhere. It's an interesing challenge.

 

 

Re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

I think it was Eru that delt with Saruman at the end, I don't think the Valar have the power to do do that to one of their own. I suspect that he might be sitting in the Void somewhere, listening to Morgoth and Sauron argue.

I suspect that he might be sitting in the Void somewhere, listening to Morgoth and Sauron argue. That'd be an amusing conversation to hear... ~Allie

 

 

Re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

That'd be an amusing conversation to hear... "Oh, yes, and putting all your power into bits of jewellery is such a good idea, Sauron..." "Hey, you're a fine one to talk, He-Who-Arises-In-Might-And-Then-Falls-Flat-On-His-Face!" "Well, at least I don't let pint-sized things destroy everything I own..." "What about the small matter of this Beren chap? Or have you forgotten the scruffy guy with the pretty girlfriend?" "Yes, well, yours were more pint-sized than mine were. Beren was twice the size of that curly-haired midget." Man, I need to get some sleep...

 

 

Re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

Nooooo!!!!!! That'd be an amusing conversation to hear... "Oh, yes, and putting all your power into bits of jewellery is such a good idea, Sauron..." "Hey, you're a fine one to talk, He-Who-Arises-In-Might-And-Then-Falls-Flat-On-His-Face!" Just super. You've woken up my Morgoth Muse, and I'm not supposed to spend time writing fanfiction this month! -Arandil

 

 

Re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

That would be so funny to read. Someone definitely needs to write that!

 

 

Re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

I'm reminded of Cam's OFUM, and the neverending arguing of Sauron and Morgoth. And also Arandil's own Morgoth's Notebook... Ah, arguing Dark Lords. The fun, the terror... ~Allie

 

 

Re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

OFUM and Morgoth's Notebook are hilarious! I'm almost tempted to write something like that myself, but I don't think I will. *resists urge to write*

 

 

Re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

lol, CLF! Same here, except I lack the ability to write good humor. ~Allie

 

 

Re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

You write really well! I'm sure you could write humor. I've tried it before . . .the results were all right, but I know of people who can write humor much better then I can.

 

 

Re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

Thanks for the encouragement! Much appreciated, trust me. But yes: there are some who are just born to write humor well. ~Allie

 

 

Re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

You're welcome! My brother can make people laugh by doing the most simple things. It's kind of like a gift he has or something. I, on the other hand, can only make people laught occasionally when I write things.

 

 

Re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

Well, I actually started my fanfic career as a humor writer, but I think there are people out there far, far better than me. *mutters* I will not write it. I will not write it. I will not write it. Oh, damn. I will write the confounded thing.

 

 

Re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

Is that a **mutter** of commitment?? if so...what, six to go for an official challenge? great!! I think it would be interesting to see this done from a few angles... hope enough people will take this up... Milly

 

 

Re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

Nope, Milly: it takes just five pledges to get the challenge official. If Noldo has indeed volunteered, you only have four to go! If I may suggest, SSP this on the HA yahoo list, and you could get a few pledges that way. That is often the case with a challenge that is promoted there. If you have any questions at all, feel free to e-mail me ( I'm the new Challenges Manager). I'm very delighted that you're posting your nuzgul here! Cheers, Allie ;)

 

 

Re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

*Gives up resisting* I give in! I'll join this challenge, and do something humor related.

 

 

Re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

Yes, it's a *mutter* of irritated, beleaguered commitment. So you have two, apart from yourself.

 

 

Re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

Great!!!!! thanks guys!! ^_^ C'mon any others...you know you want it... Yes, it can be humor, drama, slashy , anything. Milly

 

 

Re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

Hi Allie! thanks for the good words and advice- very much appreciated!! so its five eh... OK, cool. so we have 2 others besides me- can I count myself??? if so only need three more... Milly

 

 

Re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

You _always_ have the freedom to be bitten by your own nuzgul, and to count yourself as a pledge. *scribbles three names* Milly, CLF, and Noldo... Any more takers? Cheers, Allie

 

 

Re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

OK..just two more... remember it can be any genre you prefer... I take this alarmingly seriously, so you know mine will be adult drama most likely... two more....!! Milly

 

 

Re: Saruman's death- then what happened?

Milly, you could try SSP'ing this one on HA. You can get pledges that way, sometimes. Always, Allie
