Elrohir clasped his brother as his fae collapsed in exhaustion from confronting the beauty of moonrise. Elladan closed his eyes, the warmth of the garden peeling back apprehension, anxiety and silenced the sorrow water-falling in his chest. He brought Elrohir's body to the grass before toppling down from the scent of Earth and the change therein.
He felt himself prone to change, more loyal to detachment than permanence, felt his fae pine, in curiosity, for Doom. But, the choice was not decided by the heart and wisdom of Eru, who gave him a twin.
He was his brother's twin first.
