“How like you they are, Ardamirë.”
Eärendil frowned. “What mean you, Laurefindil?” he challenged. He had invited Glorfindel aboard as Vingilótë sailed on the anniversary of Ondolindë’s destruction, and risked covering the Silmaril, sailing nearer to Annúminas.
“Valandil, for a start.”
Eärendil barked a laugh. “Valandil is dead. I shall carry out this doom endlessly. Bringer of Hope they call me, and for what?”

Elros! No – King Eldacar.
“May you have long life and reign well, my son,” Eärendil whispered.
