‘Menegroth...'

Such words still sat uneasily on her tongue… but since it was Elwë Sindacollo’s… no, Thingol’s command the Ancient Speech be put aside…

She sighed …magnificent, glittering… but a city underground - made of stone carved into unfamiliar designs – she preferred those hidden galleries overlooking the forest.

Galadriel strayed into a natural cave, hung with gleaming stalactites dripping into shimmering puddles… One caught her eye… a reflection… No… she saw… a tall, silver-haired elf stoop to cup water in his hand… and behind him were trees!

She blinked. The vision dissolved into ripples… but she’d seen... something... hadn’t she?
