Light challenge - Starlight: Torchlight: Darkness - Strange Stars : Kortirion

Author: Kortirion

Rating: G
Source: The Two Towers
Disclaimer: Tolkien discovered the hidden worlds of Middle-earth and all who dwell therein.
Notes: In order to catch up… One answer to three challenges: Starlight, Torchlight, and Darkness.

The stone walls of Helm’s Deep stood proud and tall. Above the waiting warriors on its ramparts, the pale stars glittered, a vast panoply, sweeping down to a shrouded horizon where blackest night met blacker land. At such a distance the twinkling starlight changed hue, taking on a sickly pallor, yellow and flickering. These foreboding stars moved and jostled, edging inexorably closer, closer… to become torch-lights – marching towards them, as myriad as the stars that patterned the night.

Out of the darkness, transformed from comforting to dreadful, the pale stars of earthly fire flowed nearer – each a promise of destruction.
