Fell Beasts challenge - dragons - 'Be The Dragon' : Kortirion

Title: Be The Dragon
Author: Kortirion
Character: A Bard of the Hall
Rating: G
Source: Middle-earth
Disclaimer: Tolkien inspired me... but the works are his alone.

The Dragon had been his inspiration... or rather his voice. A downy-faced lad doesn’t aspire to be a venerable grey-beard... even if his crystal-knotted staff is rather awesome.

Every character lived on The Dragon's tongue; each a note chimed into ever-changing timbres... That’s what had inspired him to take bardic oaths.

Now – his final test... Imagine your character, see him, step into his shoes and - be...!

The young bard declaimed, the audience quietened... drifting under his spell. Time stopped, re-winding into a past of heroes and mighty deeds...

Seated among the guests by the Hall’s fire... The Dragon smiled.
