'Hubris' - exceedingly tardy answer to "Gift" prompt of prior challenge

Title: Hubris
Author: Huinárë
Characters/Pairing: Varda, Melkor
Rating: G
Warnings: N/A
Book/Source: The Silmarillion, Morgoth’s Ring

Summary: Concerning Varda and Melkor at the breaking of the Lamps.  Answering the prompt “Gift.”


Melkor strode forth with warhammer unto the Lamps’ last hour.  The power of the Valar had already waned with their sojourn in Arda, and his might they could not withstand.

With uplifted hand Varda threw blinding light in Melkor’s face, that he savor not the sight of Illuin dashing itself against the earth.  Catastrophic flame seized all the land.  Melkor flinched from the wrath and grief of Varda, but spoke in mockery:

“You boasted of Eru’s gift of light, rendered through you unto all.  See what destruction your gift visits on that which you love, and temper your arrogance hereafter.”
