FLOWER CROWN AULE! Out of all the Valar, Aule is probably my favorite. He strikes me as the big-hearted but no-nonsense father figure of the ainur: always working for others and never turning you down when in a pickle. But his biggest flaw I fear is that he is not all that firm when it comes to his principles and creations and depends too much on other people’s emotional support so in other works kind of a push-over.

Also, anyone else picked up on some similarities between Sauron and his former master? I can’t be the only one to think that being a maia of Aule didn’t mean something more than just being a decent blacksmith.
