AU challenge - 'it never happened' - More Than Flesh Can Bear: Kortirion

Author: Kortirion
Character: Lord Elrond
Rating: G
Source: AU – to the movie!Prologue
Disclaimer: This is not Tolkien’s Lord of Rivendell, but a nodding acquaintance

There had been no option... he had to do it. Isildur’s thin, high scream as he plunged into the fiery chasm pierced Elrond. He’d hear it forever, chiding him for murder.

So many dead. Gil-galad... gone... Bereft, tears from reddened eyes streaked through the grime revealing his exhausted pallor. Would he never be rid...? He heard it now, someone calling him... it cannot be!

He hastened back, crawled, leaned out. In the lurid glow the Ring hung, caught among rocks... within arms length. It crooned... It begged... It would take all his pain away... Slowly, he reached... and took it!
