16. Replacements (Lothíriel & Arwen)


Queen Arwen has dressed in the manner of our kingdom, abandoning elven styles in favor of our mortal variations. Rich velvets exchanged for flowing silks, embroidery for simple lines.

She has replaced her clothing as well as her life, I muse.

My father said the elven-folk feel sorrows and joys more intensely than we do. We feel a pang at the loss of a rowboat, he said, while the elves feel a shipwreck's devastation.

I feel sudden warmth for this exotic queen, who traded Valar's grace for unbreakable love.

"I am Lothíriel of Dol Amroth, my lady. Welcome to Gondor."

March 24, 2005. For Forodwaith. Instant drabbled: clothing, exotic, mysterious, and shipwreck.

2005 MEFA nominee.
