The Parting Gift - Galadriel

The Parting Gift - Galadriel

These characters all belong to the estate of J.R.R. Tolkien. This story was written for pleasure and not for financial gain.


I could have turned him away; made certain he never passed my borders to behold her again. Instead, I bade him welcome, had a bath prepared and fine garments laid out for him.

Joy had long eluded Arwen. I feared her fading. Aragorn ached with emptiness. I saw into his heart and hers.

Destiny dictates that they be united.

Today I bestow the bride gift upon him.

The adoration in his eyes at her name awes me. I lose much at his gaining. Yet, he is worthy indeed.

Though I am doomed to diminish, their fruit will flourish.

I rejoice.


A/N I was sorry that Galadriel did not feature in the "There and Back " challange, but decided to write the drabble I had in mind for her in any case.

The events take place as the Fellowship takes leave of Galadriel. She is looking back to events of almost 40 years earlier.

Maybe I should have called this collection "Almost everyone finds Aragorn adorable"?
