I think this is a case of poor communication on my part: by pre-fallen I meant "already fallen", not "in a state prior to falling". Like buying hamburgers that are pre-cooked, or being pre-approved for a loan. Sorry.

Re: Thinking the unthinkable: SBOH

I think Tolkein himself said that any seqyel would be too sad. I understand what he is sating. Any continuation would not have the "same magic." Gandalf and Frodo are gone.
