Challenge (Himring): En garde! This challenge is all about weapons and weaponry. Write a story about a character's chosen weapon, or learning how to use a weapon. Is the character a skilled fighter, or is learning to wield a weapon a bit of a struggle for him or her?
Narsil: nar - "fire", thil -"white light" referring to the Sun and Moon
Andúril: "Flame of the West"...on its blade was traced a device of seven stars set between the crescent Moon and the rayed Sun, and about them was written many runes... Very bright was that sword when it was made whole again; the light of the sun shone redly in it, and the light of the moon shone cold, and its edge was hard and keen.
(J. R. R. Tolkien: The Fellowship of the Ring)
