Note: I apologise for posting this late, having finally found where I'd filed the drabble I discovered that unplugging my internet cable wasn't such a good idea - my computer decided not to let me go on/post in some sites - this one included. If it's in the wrong place then delete it, let me know, and I'll post in tolkien100.

Author: victory_raven

Disclaimer: I own the drabble, but that’s it. Characters, plot, whatever - not mine.

Out of the blackness he came, his horde of servants following in his wake. Plants withered as he passed, water grew foul and beasts died. Morgoth moved south, into the light he planned to destroy. The Valar could feel his malice, but knew not when he would strike.

Swift was the blow, and sure. The Dark One came into the light, and tore down the pillars of Illuin and Ormal. The seas boiled, the earth broke, and flame flashed and poured over the land as the lamps exploded. The symmetry of the world was destroyed, and Spring bloomed no more.
