Regarding Delphie's quote about Fate, she's a known liar who would have said anything to get Wanda to turn to Haffaton. I think we need to take anything she says with a grain of salt. However, even if we assume she was right, it still doesn't hurt my theory.
Think of my theory about the Titans, Fate and Prediction like Macbeth. Macbeth is Fated to be king. That's going to happen, no matter what. If he never hears the Prediction from the witches, maybe Duncan and his sons are killed in a plague, or a fire, or a battle. However long it took, Macbeth would have eventually been king. But Macbeth did hear the Prediciton, and that changes things. Macbeth could have chosen to ignore it, in which case the former scenario would have still happened and Macbeth would have been surprised when the Prediction came true, like he was about the Prediction about becoming Thane of Cadwor. But Macbeth chose to act on the Prediction setting into motion the tragic events we all know so well. At each point, Macbeth can choose to act in whatever way he likes, but the Titans (Shakespeare) know how he WILL react and thus the story is written. No matter how many times you read Macbeth, he always stabs the king. In this example, Lady Macbeth is like Delphie and all the other Fateless ones. If Macbeth had ignored the Prediciton, Lady Macbeth lives and becomes Queen. But when he acts, she colludes with him and ends up committing suicide. Again she has many possible paths, but hers are affected by Macbeth, heavy with Fate. And again, even though there are multiple paths, the story always plays out the same.

I don't think he's going to pull a Grant Morrison and write himself in as God, but he's totally a Titan.
I doubt Rob thinks of himself as a pompadoured giant in a white jumpsuit
I think Rob is more like Eru Iluvatar. His music crafts Erfworld, but for the actual, in-game events, he allows his servants, the Titans (Valar) to act in his stead.
