The Diary of a Necromancer

My two hundredth Movella centers upon Lord Sauron's perspective of "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings". Enjoy!


3. My Career Begins

I'm in my private quarters right now. Trying to sum up my early years in writing.

So much has transpired since I was young. But I can adapt it all here:

Once upon a time, I, Mairon, was a Maia of Aulë the Smith.

This means that I started out as a nearly-primordial spirit that will one day descend into Arda to help the Valar first shape the World. As for the Valar, they are also called Quenya. As the Powers of Arda, they live on the Western continent of Aman. While we are supposed to be numerous, not many of us have names.

Speaking of which, my name, Mairon, means "the admirable". Pretty cool, I think.

I learned the magical arts from the great and powerful Ei. Don't worry about me struggling. I'm actually quite used to outshining people. Olorin and Curumo eat my dust. But I don't brag about it. There's no point in bringing people down. Unless, they're evil, of course.

At least not outwardly...

To me, the greatest virtue to have is order and perfection. Anything, good or bad, that goes to waste is a terrible loss.


I am also a master of deception. So much that Ei is peaking his head through the door right now.


Okay, I'm back. I just got an exceptionally dangerous assignment.

"You are skilled in espionage and we need you," Ei had said.

"I'm not quite sure what you're proposing," I replied.

"You need to spy on a Dark Lord."

"Wow. Pretty big task."

"Huge. You must, for the time being, become the servant of Mogorth."
