Aule has just left Hobbiton.

Wasn't Luthien just fairest, but Feanor was greatest in mind, and subtlety of his works and also in body so that no other child of Illuvatar could compare to him.
Obviously they were all unique in their own way, but Feaor ws basicly perfect apart from his arrogance

The draft ends here. In the margin Tolkien wrote: 'Thus while Sauron multiplied [illegible word] evil, he left "good" clearly distinguishable from it. Gandalf would have made good detestable and seem evil.'
I wonder what Tolkien meant when he said that, how could good be detestable. Anyone got any idea
