Re: goldberry

It is often suggested that Tom Bombadil was a Maiar, but was he really? Perhaps Tom is something along the lines of Ungoliant who was said to have 'descended from the darkness that surrounded Arda'. Perhaps Tom, too, crept into the world from outside of it... maybe even from the Void. For the Music of the Ainur (and the discord of Melkor) echoed out into the Void, and both Tom and Ungoliant could have been products of the Music rather than the 'offspring of the thought' of Eru.
