Silmaril

The way I thought of it (mind you, I know Tolkien did not mean it to be like this) Iluvatar was like our version of God and Melkor was like Satan, in a way. Melkor was like an angel, like the other Ainur, but he turned to evil, so he was flung out of their eternal abode of joy. That is what I first thought of when I read the story...of course I'm pagan, so it was strange that I noticed that, but...oh well...
