The Arrow for its Swiftness
Wrap, twist, cut, tie. Again. Again.
Celebwen is acknowledged the finest fletcher in Rivendell; her four-feather shield-cut fletchings may be a hangover from long-ago Lindon, but every shaft has flown true for five thousand years.
Now her fingers are cut and sore; she has stockpiled arrows for three days. Word came from Lothlórien, the Grey Company rode forth, and Imladris readied for war. Master Elrond, grim-faced, has sent many who cannot or will not fight west to the Havens; but neither he nor the Evenstar will leave, and so the rest prepare to defend the valley, to their last breath.
