Disclaimer: Tolkien owns. I play. Profit? -- what's that?

We stand on the quay, father, brothers, sister, mother. Elrond, Elladan, Elrohir. Arwen. Celebrίan.

Celebrian’s face is an unnatural hue. I remember it soft, pale; now it is strained, pallid.
She gives her daughter a stone. It is green, small, brighter than she is.

‘Keep this,’ she says. She has few words these days, Celebrίan my mother.

They are her last words to me before she is gone. I am holding the beautiful stone she has left me. I feel as if I am going away, not Celebrίan daughter of Galadriel and Celeborn.

The stone grows warm within my grasp.
