For the "Fire" challenge...

Wow, what a great idea! I was directed here by annmarwalk, and I can tell that I'll waste plenty of time here in the future. :) I hope I do all of this posting right...

Title: Shadow and Flame
Author: Ithiliel Silverquill
Characters/Pairing: Glorfindel, Balrog
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: references (from a Balrog's POV) to violence, death
Book/Source: The Silmarillion
Disclaimer: I don't own the Balrog, for which I am very thankful. Unfortunately, I don't own Glorfindel either. Tolkien owns them both.

Shadow and Flame

I remember him well.

He thought he could defeat me. I saw him leap toward me, sword in hand and armor gleaming, and I read the feral gleam in his eyes.

He put up a good fight, I will give him that. He was undaunted by my whip and flame, and he did not flinch even when his gloves burst into fire on his hands.

But as we fell into the abyss, his golden hair tangled burning in my claws, I read the fear and pain in his eyes. And I knew I had won.

Yes, I remember him well.
