Well, I don't know if it's the culmination...but I'll include it here if any are interested.

Filk: Baldur's Lament
TTTO: Memory (From "Cats")

Asgard is preparing for battle
And the host of Valhalla is preparing as well
On Naglfar the giants sail to battle the Gods
Meanwhile Loki empties Hel

Midgard has been drowned by the serpent
It's the end of the old days of the heros of lore
The valkyrie no longer sail the souls to the Gods
Bardic voices sing no more

Ev'ry heartbeat seems to toll
A fatalistic warning
Someone mutters how the Gods and others
Will ne'er more see the morning

Odin rides to battle with Fenrir
And Thor with Jormangund; fated losses to come
Moans and mourning, they scream until my memory's numb
The final battle has begun

Gods and elves and dwarves
And demon giants' time has ended
As Asgard dies the elder age is over
The horn of his'try winded

Baldur, as the son of All-Father
I am cursed with the mem'ry of our time in the sun
Perhaps in due time I'll understand why Ragnarok was
When the new age has begun
