1. Melkor and the Mountain

Prompt: Nan Elmoth - "It is not enough to conquer; one must also know how to seduce" - Voltaire

Response: "War and Eros are the two sources of illusion and falsehood among men. Their mixture represents the very greatest impurity" - Simone Weil.

"Love me," he told the mountain, and spirit of fire, neither waited nor withheld. With his own flame he fired it to love him as himself.

It vomited, wept ash-tears and embers, trembled with his heat.

'Tis the image of his beauty. He will enflame Eä with his love, yet vainly: echoes are not answers, but he'll not hear the wailings...
