“Raise the Phial of Galadriel and let the Star Glass of Lothlorian
cast out the Darkness of Shelob's Lair.”

Slowly his hand went to his bosom, and slowly he held aloft the Phial of Galadriel. For a moment it glimmered, faint as a rising star struggling in the heavy earthward mists and then as it's power waxed, and hope grew in Frodo's mind, it began to burn, and kindled to a silver flame, a minute heart of dazzling light.

She was there, who was there before Sauron, before the first stone of Barad Dur; and she served none but herself, drinking the blood of Elves and Men, bloated and grown fat with endless broodings on her feasts, weaving webs of shadow; for all living things were her food, and her vomit darkness. None could rival her, Shelob the Great, last child of Ungoliant to trouble the unhappy world.

And so she lived, delighting in her own devices, and feared no assault, nor wrath, nor any end of her wickedness. Never yet had any fly escaped  from Shelob's webs, and the greater now was her rage and hunger.

Deep, deep it pricked.

No such anguish had Shelob ever known, or dreamed of knowing, in all her long world of wickedness. Not the doughtiest soldier of old Gondor, nor the most savage Orc entrapped, had ever thus endured her, or set blade to her beloved flesh.

A shudder ran through her. Heaving up again wrenching away from the pain, she bent her writhing limbs beneath her and sprang backwards into a convulsive leap. This time to to crush and and sting to death... this time to slay and then to rend.
