Weather challenge - Tempest: 'So Tells the Bard' : Kortirion

Title: So Tells the Bard
Author: Kortirion
Character: Rohirrim
Rating: G
Source: TT – movie!verse
Disclaimer: Tolkien’s characters in Tolkien’s world – Kortirion’s just visiting.

Unleashed, the heavens let slip a hundred thousand arrows, each to find its mark... stinging upturned eyes, coating braided hair, cloak and armour alike in icy wetness, challenging the ground beneath their feet to surrender – so stone became dangerously slick and earth turned to sucking mud.

A deluge unlooked for above their heads... and before them another storm advancing – where thunder drummed and lightening flashed on raised steel held high above hideous, dark faces. Eyes, fangs shining, rain-soaked as the defending Rohirrim, standing, netted with the tempest’s diamonds... men who would soon enough be crowned and braceleted with bloody rubies.
