1. The Lady's Gift
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)
