"The Hated Element" --for 'Natural Disasters--Flood' (rather belatedly)

Title: The Hated Element
Author: Huinárë
Characters/Pairing: Melkor, Glaurung, Balrogs, Maiar
Rating: PGish for vague reference to maiming and execution
Warnings: N/A
Book/Source: The Silmarillion
Disclaimer: Characters belong to Tolkien.  No profit reaped by myself, aside from a wealth of intellectual giddiness.

Summary: Wherein spies of Valinor seek to enter besieged Utumno.  Answering the prompt “Flood.”


Ulmo’s spies mingle with distant rivulets and wend painstakingly toward Utumno.  Obscure deep and claustrophobic ways, magmatic impediments, sheer passages...

Glaurung lopes and jolts along the corridor, hunched, once-humanoid form slowly trending reptilian.  He seeks the dungeons, another prisoner to bring atop the ramparts and rend before Valinor’s host, but pauses to note a dripping onto the floor.

Glaurung attacks Ulmo’s spy with what feeble flame he now possesses, but more pour down.  He thrashes and steams as the corridor floods.  Melkor, sensing the incursion of the hated element, summons several Valaraucar.  A violent skirmish arises in the deep.
