Older Than The Sun (Galadriel, G)

Written for the "Surface" challenge.

Title: Older Than The Sun
Author: rubynye
Characters/Pairing: A certain lady as discussed by two wedding guests, one who knows his history and one who does not.
Book/Source: Tolkien's Legendarium; Silmarillion and ROTK
Disclaimer: Everything but the order of the words belongs to Professor Tolkien's estate, not to me.

That lady you point to, do you not know her name? She is very fair indeed, and merry and bright, laughing there with the King and his new bride. But have a care how you cast your gaze; beneath the sparkling fall of her hair, her unlined cheek and lissom hands, runs the current of power that overbore Dol Guldur and cleansed Mirkwood of taint till it shone green once more. The Lady Galadriel is mighty and wise and older than the Sun, and you say she does not seem so only because you have not looked in her eyes.
