Fell Beasts challenge - wargs - 'Deus Ex Machina' : Kortirion

Title: Deus ex Machina
Author: Kortirion
Character: A Bard of the Hall
Rating: G
Source: somewhere in Northern Middle-earth
Disclaimer: Tolkien knows Middle-earth, and the paths of Hall-singers.

It must be finished - yet inspiration refused to come. He paced, chewed his thumb, swung his arms in circles… still, he could not think of an ending. The hero of his latest epic had fought, riddled, and cleverly bargained his way to victory, but…

What to do with him now?

Then it came to him…


“...and he was eaten by a warg. The End!”

There was a pause... no applause filled the Hall... just incredulous stares, that rapidly turned to frowns...

“But... but...” He began desperately, “True heroes never die... Eru looked down and - that’s another story!”
