Title: Winter's Drums
Author Name: pandemonium_213
Prompts: Winter weather (B2MeM 2014) and thundersnow (B2MeM 2012 – yes, a tad belated)
Summary: The grisly banner having served its purpose, Sauron enlists the assistance of his soldiers and bodyguard to bear Celebrimbor's corpse to its final resting place in the foothills of the Misty Mountains while a snowstorm approaches from the southwest.
Warnings: Descriptions of torture and a deteriorating corpse may be too intense for some readers (roughly equivalent to MPAA R-rating or TV Ratings Mature Audience V); some expletive language. Pandë!versecentric.
Beta: Many thanks to Binky, Drummerwench, Elfscribe, Ignoble Bard, KyMahalei, Oshun, Randy O, Russandol, and Scarlet for their input.
Author's Notes: I thoroughly enjoyed collaborating with huinare, who has provided two illustrations for this story. Her style is distinctive (reminds me of Brian Froud's work), and the grey tones are eminently suitable for the bleak theme of the story. Many thanks to Huinárë for the excellent artwork! Also see End Notes for more of my interminable bloviation.
