Characters/Pairing: Elrond, Celebrían

The heavy tome sat on on the table, dusty and cracked, but in surprisingly good condition. "What is it?" Celebrían asked, resting a hand on Elrond's shoulder as she leaned forward to peer at it.
"A collection of songs and stories from Gondolin and Doriath," Elrond said, "recorded by Tuor before he set sail." The book's journey from Sirion to Imladris had not been an easy one. Elrond was reluctant to handle it, lest it be damaged. "Lindir has volunteered to make copies."
Once that was done, this precious book would be carefully put away, to last many years to come.
