Midnight. The waters dipped and rose in the perpetual dance of wind and tide. On such a night, each wave-tip glimmered under Ithil... so many scattered, twinkling stars on the water.

Elrond stirred in his father’s lap, enchanted by the view from the cliff-top. From here, the stars above reached to the horizon, and the star-flecked sea seemingly reached to their feet - no breakers flared white over beaches, the pair simply drifted on a springy heather nest into salt-tanged darkness.

“Adar... are the lights in the water the children of the stars?”

“No...” said Eärendil, “...but we could be.”
