Disclaimer: I don’t own Lord of the Rings. I do however own several LotR action figures and a life-size cardboard cutout of Legolas. Boo ya!!

Warning: very short… nothing other than that

A/N: This is from a request/commission for help_haiti in the lightning round. I wasn’t so sure about the characters, but it was actually a lot of fun to write. I had to look them up in the wikia so I hope characterization and stuff is accurate-ish. I do think it’s more book-verse than movie-verse though. I also apologize if the writing seems odd. It seems odd to me XD Anyway, the prompt was:

Genre: Angst/Fluff

Timeline: After the 3rd movie I suppose

Prompt: Elrond had a dream about Gil-Galad after a long time and Glorfindel's there for him. Something along those lines :D


Elrond’s waking dreams this night were quite distressing and try as he might he could not rouse himself from them. Visions of Gil-Galad flashed through his mind’s eye, making thin rivulets of tears roll down his cheeks. It had been many, many years since he had last thought of the golden haired elf even in passing and he was not anxious for these visions to last for they brought him great grief.

Memories continued to assault him, images of happier times, times in Lindon and Eregion. He knew he was crying and shaking but he couldn’t stop the torrent of memories that each brought their own fresh wave of pain. It had been many, many years, but he still remembered and grieved.

Suddenly he felt a hand on his shoulder, shaking him to full consciousness and another on his face, stroking it gently. A wave of relief washed over him and he blinked, a golden head slowly coming into focus. For one heart-wrenching moment he thought it was Gil-Galad but he blinked again and saw instead Glorfindel’s face before him.

“Meleth,” Glorfindel whispered, stroking the other elf’s hair now, “what is wrong?”

Elrond breathed deeply, relishing the night air and the calmness and strength that radiated from his bed partner. “It is but memories of a time long past,” he replied softly, voice full of suppressed pain. “I am sure it will pass in a moment.”

Glorfindel smiled slightly, one hand reaching out to wipe the tears from Elrond’s face. “Do not be ashamed of such memories. It is good to remember.” He paused for a moment, looking at the dark haired elf beside him, face still damp from tears. “But always remember I am here for you.”

“I know,” Elrond replied, a slight smile playing at the corners of his mouth. “Le hannon.” Within moments he was drawn back into his waking dreams but these now were not filled with past pain, but of happiness and comfort.


A/N: I hope it met your expectations and you enjoyed it, sin_delight !

A few translations for the elvish:

Meleth= love (thanks to eiluj for the clarification!)

Le hannon= thank you

And I hope everyone else liked it as well. As always, please review!! :D



Thank you! ♥
Too bad its so short D:
But I can't complain since I ship a rare couple in LoTR ;(
Definitely going to mem and if you're offering to write again, I hope I can bid :)
I'm glad you enjoyed it! Sorry about the length... I wasn't all that confident writing it since I'd never written them before. But researching them and writing this made me want to reread the books... I'm sure I'll be shipping them once I do XD And I will definitely be offering again when the lighting round reopens! ^.^
