The Summit of Doom

"...and Orodruin reeled.  Fire belched from its riven summit.  The skies burst into thunder seared with lightning.

  1. This is WONDERFUL, absolutely wonderful.

    May I post this in my journal, along with a friend's piece (about the Fall of Barad-dur from Frodo Baggin's point of view) for March 25, the anniversary of the Fall of the Dark Lord? There's another piece by you I'd like to post with it, which I will comment on separately.

    I will credit you, of course, and link your site.
