Ailments Challenge: Ear Ache - Survivor's Guilt

Title: Survivor's Guilt
Author: SilverStarSpray
Characters/Pairing: Gilraen, Elrohir, Elladan
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Book/Source: LotR/Appendices
Disclaimer: Tolkien's the genius, not me.

Gilraen had heard Elven song before – Elladan and Elrohir were never able to visit the Dúnedain without being called upon to sing something. And she had heard Men’s drunken songs much more often, when they raised toasts to fallen brothers long into the night, until their words slurred and their voices so off key that it made one’s ears ache.

But she had never heard drunken Elves sing, until she stumbled upon Elladan and Elrohir singing slurred songs she recognized as Arathorn’s favorites, beside a fountain in the garden. Elladan kept rinsing his hands in the clear water between sips.
