Summary: A Balrog speaks

His was the mind most like unto Eru, with strength and wisdom greater than all the others, so why was he not the chosen? Melkor showed us his image of what Eä could be, a darker and more majestic vision than their simple minds can fathom.

Melkor, who taught us to fashion form out of shadow, hearts out of flame; to cloak ourselves in darkness, fuel our infernal fire with wings like bellows in a forge, to craft flails and axes worthy of our might that we may crush our enemies with hatred and vengeance.

Who would dare challenge us?

Oh, very good! Great reasons to follow Melkor, and a style very much atuned with the one Tolkien used in the Ainulindalë. I particularly like the rhythm of the second paragraph. And of course, I'm in your camp: Balrogs HAVE wings.

I'm glad you're posting these. I missed them during the B2MeM bingo madness.
