The Lady's Gift

Why did Boromir receive a belt from Galadriel as her parting gift?

MEFAwards 2009: 2nd Place – Genres: Humor: Drabbles


Celeborn’s eyebrows rose at the sight before him. “What are you doing?”

Galadriel was on her knees in their bedchamber, rummaging through a chest of drawers, its contents strewn haphazardly around her.

“I’m searching for a present to give to Boromir!”

“Here? Would the armoury or a workshop not be more appropriate?”

“Perhaps. Yes. No.”

Celeborn’s eyebrows rose even higher.

Galadriel explained, “I just know the perfect gift: Remember what Arwen made in one of her more fanciful moods?” She displayed her find.

“Oh!” Celeborn looked enlightened. “Good idea – it didn’t fit me anyway... And I’m certain Arwen wouldn’t mind.”


- “...and she turned then to Boromir, and to him she gave a belt of gold...” (FotR, Farewell to Lórien)
- “One thing only I knew not: a fair belt, as it were of linked golden leaves, about his waist...” (TTT, The Window on the West)

14.06.06 B-drabble for Ti’ana Lúthien, who said she wanted something nice or even humorous about Celeborn and Galadriel.
