Celebrating Light from the Dark Side
The festival was underway; his insipid siblings were listening to songs, poetry, and drinking the finest wines. He passed them from the south hidden by the dark, heading towards the light.
Approaching Ezellohar, he swiftly murdered the Trees, then allowed Ungoliant to gorge on their light-filled essence. A swift smile passed over his lips.
Leaving panic and fear behind them, the two progressed northwards towards their penultimate goal – the Light infused into the gems of Fëanáro. Holding the three gems to his breast, a smile appeared on his face as he stepped over the body of Finwë and headed east.
