Characters/Pairing: Galadriel, Lúthien
Disclaimer: Tolkien's the genius, not me.
“Oh, I know ginger,” Lúthien says when Galadriel picks it up. “Círdan’s folk use it on fish.”
“So do…” Galadriel pauses, lips thinning for the briefest of moments. “So do the Teleri in Aman. They use it also in a tea, to aid those who suffer seasickness.”
Lúthien considers asking why she hesitated in speaking of Olwë’s folk, but decides against it. “And do the Noldor use it to bake things?” she asks instead, lightly and teasing.
Galadriel smiles. “Among other things…” Lúthien laughs.
It isn’t long before the smell of gingersnaps fills the kitchens, mingling with apples and cinnamon.
