Mordor was not only used by evil in the Third Age. It had been used by Morgoth in the First Age. Brushkût, an orc from Mordor is trained to join the troops at Angband and sets off with his regiment, walking through the dead of winter towards the far north.
Yule Fic Exchange written for mrowe (Nath). Although I really wanted to write an upbeat story, my muse just didn’t allow it. So sorry, I guess redemption just wasn’t in the cards for poor Brushkût. Disclaimer: Tolkien built the sand box; I only play with the bucket and shovel that he left for me. No money, profit or non, is made from the publication of this story.
