Although Melkor was a Vala, dear Amarië, he gave up that title and became the Enemy, hence he is not counted amongst that order anymore. There are only fourteen, and one who lost his name amongst them.
That said, I wanted to be Irmo or Ulmo...*shakes fist*
Me, Tulkas? You've got to be kidding! Although Lady Nessa should be quite lovely, how she danced her fairylike dance in the lush fields of Almaren... and how swift and lithe she is, her lovely feet as doves flying over the Fields of Yavanna.
And yes, putting Old Grumpy in his place doesn't sound half-bad either... heh.
I am Mandos, and I know what has happend and will happen to people who tries to pick a fight with the Council or a Council Member.
Or alternatively you are Vairë, Mandos's spouse, and henceforth automatically know everything your husband knows too... :elkgrin:
Give up the Halfring, she-elf...
