For the 'Pride' challenge.

"Rite of Passage"

He watched himself in the mirror as he brushed his hair; not quite as long, yet, as his brothers’ – and he wished it less inclined to wave.

He twisted hair back from his face into the familiar braid at his back, but there was plenty still for the ceremony…

A little later he stood between his father and his mentor; a field of faces turned towards them.

Adar and Glorfindel took loose hair from either side and twisted and tied in rhythm.

He thought his heart would burst with pride as Adar spoke; “Congratulations Estel. Now you are a warrior!"


Definitely a 'filmverse' bit of visuals here...
