11. Inner Fire - by Kate

Inner Fire

Fëanor had been working on his latest project for months, struggling to shape the metal to his will.

Nerdanel enjoyed watching him - laughing as his temper flared and he threw down his tools, storming off in disgust. Yet he always returned, and that is what she liked most about him.

One afternoon he finally succeeded: pouring himself into his creation as the metal resonated to his will. His braid was coming loose about his face and sparks leapt about him. He looked up briefly, and smiled at her. And in that moment, she saw him as if for the first time.

Happy Birthday Allie!

Is it your birthday? Then come, give us a theme, and we'll give you a drabble! Your theme could be very specific ("Black Riders on Weathertop!") or rather broad ("Something about singing in Middle-earth") or it could be a question—you choose. Please post your "birthday card" theme under the month you were born in and don't hesitate to let the list know.

Note:For any thread that has fifty posts, please start a new thread. Copy-paste the first posting (with all the requests) of the old thread and use that as the first post of the new thread. The next reply will then be in response to whatever you were originally going to respond to. This is to keep the threads relatively fast-loading and easy to read. Thank you.

Advisory: Please use your judgment in reading. Some members, having achieved official maturity, may request a birthday card not suitable for those still in their troubled Tweens.

Beginning in May 2005 Birthday Drabbles can be collected by Birthday Person in the Birthday Cards Workshop and enjoyed together rather than having to be searched for down the threads.
