Hi there!

So this is what you've been up to! Great little story! I laughed out loud at this:

"When Galadriel proposed great works and pavement for Imladris, Elrond had simply smiled and thanked her, and, for all her plans, nothing had been done. She had cajoled in public and sniped in private, until there was no bearing it."

And this:

"If she has razed all the trees and paved the land in marble, I do not wish to hear it."

Frankly, I think your tale makes a lot of sense out of the garble of Celeborn and Galadriel. And the idea of a marital spat lasting, what, nearly 200 years? Only among the Elves. *chuckle*
