It's a mini fanwork exchange - you can find details on Tumblr or Dreamwidth, just search Innumerable Stars 2018. 500 word min word count, or line sketch for art. Not too scary!

Story notes:
I think Fingolfin is one of the least appreciated characters in the Silmarillion. So, this is for him. Originally written in Gothmog's POV, I changed it to Coldagnir's because Gothmog did not strike me as someone who cared about elves.
Engrossed in thought of life and death,
I watched the reckless, dying elf;
A stubborn soul that would not quit,
Its bloody, bruised and broken shell,
Though gripped in writhing pain,
Though he knew ‘twas all in vain.

My thoughts then lifted me above,
The clashing scream of metal brands,
The sickening gush of crimson blood,
The desperate, tragic, futile valour,
Of the struggling lucent elven soul,
At war, with evil itself.

With every breath, he strove to no avail,
Seeking anywhere at all, to strike,
To fight and break that dreadful foe;
Though each new breath did weaker grow,
Yet till the very end he fought,
And fighting fell before his deathless foe.
Chapter end notes:
Coldagnir is a balrog from Spiced Wine's universe featuring in her Magnificent of the Damned Books I and II.

Thank you so much for letting me use him Sian!
