B2MeM Prompt 31: Tomorrow or Yesterday  
B2MeM was a lot of fun, and a lot of work. My thanks go out to all those who organized it.

Here's my final prompt:

Drabble, Maglor, G.


I looked at the sunlight glinting on the water, soft in the dawn, running the events of the previous day through my mind: the Silmaril burning me; my tossing it into the Sea that I had slept next to last night, listening to the crashing waves; the burn that I had only been able to treat with my drinking water and a clean shirt torn into strips as a bandage; my wandering down the shore singing in pain and regret. Yesterday had been the culmination of everything that had occurred since the Darkening. But tomorrow… tomorrow I could start again.

The phrase "singing in pain and regret" is taken directly from the Silmarillion.

It's good that he has decided to live and start anew. His wandering and unknown fate is one of the saddest parts in The Sil.

Yeah, it is good. I agree that his wandering is one of the saddest parts of the Silm. :(
