Today's Challenge (Day 27): Write a story or poem, or create a piece of art where your character rises above themselves to follow their dreams.
Let Them a Journey New Begin
Over many years, by letter and face-to-face, the conversation's repeated. Thranduil will not abandon his people; Celeborn argues that they need neither leading in battle nor warding from the Necromancer. Many have taken ship; the Unwilling are vanishing into the forest depths. Those closest to the Elven-king urge him to go, lest he too begin to Fade…
"So I should leave my realm for a strange land full of Fair-elves and Kin-slayers?"
"And Sea-elves and Grey-elves," Celeborn insists. "Including – your son."
Pride, distrust, stubbornness battle Age-old longing. At last word comes to Imladris; the Elven-king has decided. He will sail.
