Smile: Reunion Over Silmarilli

Title: Reunion Over Silmarilli
Author: Huinárë
Characters/Pairing: Sauron, Melkor
Rating: G
Warnings: N/A
Book/Source: The Silmarillion
Disclaimer: Characters belong to Tolkien. No profit reaped by myself, other than a wealth of intellectual giddiness.

Summary: Sauron learns of Melkor’s hijinks in Valinor. A somewhat ironic response to the ‘Smile’ challenge.
Meta: i. I might have subconsciously taken a cue from Erulisse’s response to this prompt. ii. I refer to Sauron by his Ainu name of Mairon.


Melkor snatched his hand back.

Mairon, his own hand extended fraternally, reverentially, squinted. “They injured you–?”

“I injured them.” Yet the voice amid the shadows of his cloak was taut with pain.

“Please, let me see.”

Melkor slowly held forth and opened his hand. Light sprang out. “They are in darkness now, Mairon.”

Mairon winced as his pupils contracted into slits. The Silmarils illumined a hand like charred meat. “Can they be worth–this?”

Melkor glared pride and chagrin.

Mairon subdued his horror: his lord wished adulation for this, not pity. He nodded and grinned apologetically. His eyes remained grave.
