Petrology Challenge: Chalk - The House of a Friend

Title: The House of a Friend
Author: Himring
Characters/Pairing: Celebrimbor, Narvi
Rating: PG
Warnings: none

Disclaimer: I'm neither JRRT nor PJ. I hope nobody minds.
A/N: Written for Zdenka, in response to her drabble Let the Star Rise: http://b2mem.livejournal.com/240741.html

After careful planning, Narvi takes a piece of chalk and begins to mark up the rock face, while Celebrimbor stands well back, checking the position of the marks against the sketch. Finally, Narvi moves to the lower centre of the design and positions his first stroke…
‘Narvi, wait!’ cries Celebrimbor.
‘Too far to the left?’ Narvi asks.
There is silence behind his back—and he realizes this is not about a flaw in execution.
‘It is the sign of your House; it belongs on the Doors,’ Narvi says.
And between moon-shaped tree branches, he chalks out the Star of Feanor.
