Well, it's not my turn... sue me...

We come in black and white
White as snow, black as the night
We sailed south, upon the Great Sea
Where we went remains a mystery

You know, technically you should wait for 10 days, but I'll let it slide seeing as I forgot about the existance of this thread.

hehe happens to the best of us! I've got one...

Thrice have we survived the end
Music engraved in our name.
In the second, we lived proudly
Light led the music
Now we are a relic of the past
Music heard no more.



Sorry it isn't that good. I'm not at my poetic peak

You are indeed close, Gil-Galad (hehe especially with your name), but that is not the answer. Well...at least, the answer is part of the answer you gave

I thought it would be harder
