Story Notes:

Moreth's wonderful The Ice of the North inspired this piece. Moreth and I noted how the vastness and power of nature reminds Man of his insignificance. The desert serves to remind Moreth of this, and for others, it is expanses of ice and snow that do this. For me, it is the ocean.

In "Ulmo's Wife," the sea reminds a Vala of his place. The allusions to Melkor come from the Pandë!verse's somewhat heretical (would you expect otherwise?) interpretation of the legendarium, drawing largely upon Tolkien's writings in "Myths Transformed" in Morgoth's Ring, vol X, History of Middle-earth and "The Notion Club Papers" in Sauron Defeated, vol. IX History of Middle-earth. It may raise questions but all I can say is that I'll get around to a tale that may answer these eventually.

Many thanks to elfscribe, Moreth and Jael of the Lizard Council for feedback and encouragement.
