Day 1 prompt: Learning to make a fire
Mablung spent time with the Nandor in his youth, and from them learned the art of fire-breathing. He much appreciated using the higher quality lamp oil in Doriath, rather than the fairly explosive stuff of the Nandor. :D
Day 2 prompt: Facing a great danger
After having lost Morwen and Nienor near Nargothrond, Mablung was captured by the Dragon Glaurung, who mocked Mablung, but spared his life and set him free to return with the shameful news to his king.
(Note: Glaurung is greatly inspired by John Howe's creations)

Day 4 prompt: Role model
Young Mablung spying on Beleg. :D
Day 5 prompt: Regret

Day 6 prompt: "Music can name the unnamable and communicate the unknowable."

Day 7 prompt: You are walking in the woods and sudden a tree whispers to you ...
The fall of the leaves are a constant reminder that time passes, even for an immortal. Mablung, in a quiet pensive moment.
Day 8 prompt: Beauty/ugliness and day 9 prompt: antihero
Mablung watching Thingol obsessing over the Silmaril. The brightest light casts the darkest shadows...
