Kortirion, this is quite simply the best story I have ever read about Tolkien himself!  I love the  characterisations and the descriptions of the forest.

So this is how it all began - and now I'm intrigued by the second book.  Someone, somewhere, has more tales to tell ...

Ah, how delightful to think it might have taken place this way, and that indeed he might have seen a faithtful copy of the Red Book!

Other than that he went by Ron rather than John, this is so very possible a means to learn the history of Middle Earth!

And apparently a final descendant of Celeborn--and Legolas both, or so the white knife might indicate!

Lovely!

Goodness! My imagination feels as quickened as if I were eight years old again, and heaving the Lord of the Rings into my lap that first time! I recall now the near-hum of my intense fascination -which has been no less reading your wonderful account.

You have enriched me.

Wasn't there an earlier version of this story that implied the Elf was Celeborn himself?  "but there is  no record of the day when at last he sought the Grey Havens, and with him went the last living memory of the Elder Days in Middle-earth." But a pretty tale either way...

This is such a lovely story.  Thank you for sharing this with us!
I especially liked the toast: '...Green, Man!' and Tolkien believing it to be 'Green Man' - which turns out to be also true!  Reminds me of the joke about a panda in a bar which 'Eats, Shoots and Leaves'!
