Interesting Elvish gift!  And very generous of Celeborn to give it to Gimli.  Obviously whatever Galadriel told him about his behavior made a lastiing impression.

Hi Gwynnyd and Raksha,

Thank you for your comments! I am sure that Gimli did cherish the gift, and equally that Celeborn was glad to have that as the opportunity to lay to rest some old grievances.

Obviously whatever Galadriel told him about his behavior made a lastiing impression.

I'm not so sure that it's any particular thing or things that Galadriel told him about his behavior that moved him to try to come to some understanding of Gimli. I think it was more the fact of her telling him off in whatever manner she did, her interest in Gimli in particular, and the knowledge that she would be leaving Middle-earth soon, which puts a kind of choice before Celeborn, whether he leaves with her or not: to spend those last years in Lothlórien closer to her than he had been before, or to keep this difference over Dwarves, and over one particular Dwarf, between them.

Is it your birthday? Then come, give us a theme, and we'll give you a drabble! Your theme could be very specific ("Black Riders on Weathertop!") or rather broad ("Something about singing in Middle-earth") or it could be a question—you choose. Please post your "birthday card" theme under the month you were born in and don't hesitate to let the list know.

Note:For any thread that has fifty posts, please start a new thread. Copy-paste the first posting (with all the requests) of the old thread and use that as the first post of the new thread. The next reply will then be in response to whatever you were originally going to respond to. This is to keep the threads relatively fast-loading and easy to read. Thank you.

Advisory: Please use your judgment in reading. Some members, having achieved official maturity, may request a birthday card not suitable for those still in their troubled Tweens.

Beginning in May 2005 Birthday Drabbles can be collected by Birthday Person in the Birthday Cards Workshop and enjoyed together rather than having to be searched for down the threads.
