Three for the Elven-lords (Second Age) (Celeborn/Galadriel)

Galadriel accepts the Elven-ring; Celeborn's thoughts.


"Tis a thing of beauty, is it not?" Galadriel ran her finger over the white gem.

"It is," I said slowly. "But I have seen other things that appeared beautiful -- at first."

She saw the Two Trees in all their glory, and the jewels in which her kinsman captured their light. Jewels which brought death to my kinsmen.

I had seen other trees, in Middle-earth: not as glorious, perhaps, as those of Aman, but beautiful to me.

Did she not understand? Would she accept Celebrimbor's gift? Very well. Nothing good would come of it, but I would stand beside her.
