Contronyms challenge - fast: Luthien at High Speed

Title: Luthien at High Speed
Author: Himring
Characters: Luthien, Huan
Rating: PG13
Warnings: reference to canonical deaths
Book/Source: Silmarillion

There is no fastness that can keep Luthien in. There is no fastness that can keep Luthien out.

Housebreaker Luthien! Thief Luthien! Luthien, bat burglar!

Huan may be faster than Luthien and captures her, but just as quickly she captures his heart right back: fast friends.

And Morgoth? Far too slow. Those who want to catch Luthien need to get up earlier than that!

Mostly, it is herself Luthien steals away from those who would hold her fast, laying claim to her against her will.

The Silmaril is incidental. That it lays Doriath open to invasion and slaughter, thrice—unfortunate.
