"So," says Bella to Rúmil one afternoon, "a few weeks ago I told myself that if in a few weeks I had not come up with an actually good way to bring up a thing I would just mention it anyway on the grounds that if it came up somehow later and I had not done so that would be weird."
That does not really surprise Elspeth, for reasons. Anyway they could maybe help arrest him in Warp without Eru's assistance?
Well that's worrying. How would the Valar go about trying it?
Uh - given enough time they could set up somewhere else the way they're set up in Valinor and then tell wizardry to stop working the way they broke the necklaces. But they don't want to have too many of them away, lest Sauron attack.
(They shut down wizardry in Valinor, as a precaution.)
They could try talking to him and asking him to surrender?
...they should probably announce the wizardry shutdown so people know why they suddenly have to go back to doing their laundry by hand. Also time might not be infinitely available, especially time-while-Sauron-is-on-this-one-planet.
...they can keep "hope Sauron doesn't think of the possibility that Valar might have learned to lie" in reserve.
Okay, ballpark how long?
Well, they could discuss things with the peal on the network but they disabled wizardry so actually now they can't.
They can't be more selective about it? ...And this might not even stop someone from being summoned out of Valinor from elsewhere.
They did manage to stop Elspeth from teleporting by sorcery that one time, that thing might work.
They could do it to someone else and Boots could try summoning them.
If that takes a while somebody from the peal can just do it, it won't take long.
Okay. Elspeth will be right back, since she can't summon somebody from here since they disabled wizardry.
Pop pop okay they're going to try to summon Elspeth in ten minutes and the Valar should try to stop that but only until Elspeth says to let her go.
The summon doesn't work.
