Characters/Pairing: Arwen, Celebrίan
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.
