Characters/Pairing: Elrond, Elros, Tuor, Elwing
Disclaimer: Tolkien's the genius, not me.
Their first helms were decorated with a swan's wings, after the fashion of Gondolin's House of the Wing. Elros snorted and muttered something about Elves clinging their glorious past even as he set his helm on his head. But he did take pride in the connection to their grandfather Tuor.
Elrond was not fond of the design for different reasons, though he kept them to himself.
That night he woke with the smell of seawater in his nose and the acrid taste of smoke on his tongue, still hearing the rush of wings and the echo of Elwing's anguished scream.
