Potter's Wheel or thereabouts - Ghost challenge - 'There, But For Grace...' :Kortirion

Title: There, But For Grace...
Author: Kortirion
Character: Bilbo, Frodo, Lady Galadriel
Rating: G
Source: Post- RotK
Disclaimer: Tolkien constructed Middle-earth from lightness and darkness, Kortirion lurks in the shadowy bits.

Sometimes... its touch caught him unawares, ghosting across his thoughts. The burden was gone to be sure, but even here... among the Elves... its whisper was a distant echo of what he could have become. Bilbo sighed, he was old, tired, he shouldn’t have to think about things like this!

Frodo knew exactly what ghost haunted his uncle... icy threads touched him also... Probed his shoulder, twisted the remaining flake of bewitchment... Even here, beyond the Seas...

Galadriel watched them - knowing the ache of power lost, she shivered to think what sort of ghost she might have become.
