Hi there, I’m happy to do the advent story again as long as you can put up with my ridiculousness disrupting your attempts at a more somber mood :-)

Nooooo! Ziggy! Please don't! (a look of horror on face) What about the people trying to stay impartial, trying to see the good in Imrahil! (slips on rose colored glasses) Pleeeeease think about th

I agree with Spiced that you're meanies to the lovely Imrahil. I am adding a torrid sex scene in my next chapter just to annoy you.

- The Lament Of Glorfindel -

I can hear them dying still

Hear their cries against my will

Smoke and fire

Dark desire

Sold out Gondolin
.

Wind is howling in my ears

Dries away my salty tears

Tall I stand

Sword in my hand

Above Gondolin
.

Demon breath has scorched my skin

Wiped out all my friends and kin

Last ones dying

Crawling, trying

Fleeing Gondolin
.

Handle slippery with blood

From whose wound this crimson flood

Steals the life

In pain and strife

Of ruined Gondolin
.

There's no need for my defence

My resistance makes no sense

I will fall

Before the walls

Of fair Gondolin
.

Maeglin, I curse your name

And this beast of shade and flame

Final blow

My blood will flow

Farewell, Gondolin
.

Born again in Arda changed

To these times I feel estranged

Silent trees

No hope to seize

After Gondolin
.

You, my friend, are brave and wise

Naked truth before your eyes

Every breath

Is Elven death

I leave for Gondolin.
