1. A drabble

The elf's low, sorrowful song rang through the chamber, echoing from the rock-walled caverns of Mandos in doleful harmony.

"Si osreviam pihen-eredh toss," he sang as if his heart would break.
"Pihen-eredh toss,
pihen-eredh toss.
Si osreviam pihen-eredh toss
na minuial!"

When he would have started the next verse Namo, lord of Mandos, cracked. "All right!" he shouted. "Go! See if I care!"

Legolas smiled as he entered the door marked, "Dwarves only." He knew it would work in time, as it had worked for Luthien. Three weeks of singing was a small price to pay to see Gimli again.
