Assorted Drabbles: 7. Light from the Shadows - Alawa's birthday drabble

Shadowfax flies onward through the night: Pippin, roused from dozing, cries out as sudden flame races from peak to mountain-peak. Gandalf broods.


The beacons! Light in the darkness: yet will the flames of war kindle hope, or despair? Gondor's Steward calls for aid – but knows not yet that Gondor's King shall answer…


At Dunharrow, three watch the Kindler's beacons flame white in the midnight sky. Aragorn is grim-faced.


"We go to war by a dark road."


Halbarad grasps his shoulder briefly: "Yet light from the shadows shall spring."


Legolas nods. "Hope burns bright even here, while you are with us."

Elena Tiriel's favorite drabbles (vignettes of precisely 100 words), drabble multiples, or drabble series from Tolkien fanfic; a very personal and eclectic list of drabbles at HASA that have touched me in some way. See Inspiring Stories for a list of favorite stories of other types.

Why This Story?

See Olórin I was in my Youth in the West that is Forgotten; a perfect gem of a drabble with hauntingly beautiful language.
