Title: Coming of Age.
For the Famine part of the 'Eat, Drink and Be Merry' challenge.
Caras Galadhon, Near Harad and Lorien are all the property of the estate of the great Tolkien… only the food is mine.
The centre of Caras Galadhon was decorated with glowing lights, garlands of flowers, and swathes of fabric; all the inhabitants of the great elven city were invited.
The food was wonderful; tiny savouries, cakes, fruits, and little rose-water flavoured sweetmeats from Near Harad. There was even ice-cream, made on ice brought down the river from the high mountains. A feast to celebrate Tindómiel’s Coming of Age.
Yet through it all ran a thread of sadness. This would be the last such occasion; Tindómiel had been the last elfling born in Lorien. No Coming of Age celebration would ever happen again.
