A Peredhel's Fate

Challenge Details

This is a really simple Nuzgul: What was the fate of Elladan and Elrohir after the War of the Ring? Tolkien only says that when Elrond departed M-e, his sons decided to tarry a while longer.

When the sons of Elrond Peredhil come upon a human babe left to perish in the wilds, they rescue it from its fate and foster it in the home of their father. This is the story of that resulting unconventional household.
