1. To Let Go (Galadriel/Celeborn)

"It is gone," she whispered faintly. "Lórien will fall to ruin. It will perish under the light of this dying world, memories fading to nothing."

The proud golden head fell. With every moment he could hear the cry of her tattered fëa, resisting the Sea's call. In her eyes, heartache he could not heal.

Would he restrain her? Deny her serenity? No, he could not…

For Ithildin.
