Containers - pitcher: Silver Ewer, by Himring

Title: Silver Ewer
Author: Himring
Characters: Galadriel, Celeborn
Rating: G
Warnings: none
Book/Source: Lord of the Rings
Disclaimer: The Mirror of Galadriel is Tolkien's. I've just coloured in a bit of background.

‘I am going to do it today,’ she says, in the morning as they sit over breakfast.

Celeborn nods, knowing what she means. It has been discussed between them, thoroughly.

He rises and brings out a small pitcher.

‘Use this. I had it made to go with the basin.’

Their fingers touch, as he passes it to her. Once again, she feels strengthened by his support.

Later, she is carrying the ewer as she walks slowly down the many steps, Nenya on her finger, the Evening Star above. She dips it into the water and pours, for the first time.

A/N: There are apparently differences between American and British use of "pitcher" as a container. But apparently "ewers" have a range of possible forms, so this probably works either way. I've made a mental connection here between all the mentions of silver in the description of the Mirror and the first element of Celeborn's name.
