The Middle-Earth aesthetic
| N a m á r i ë | Galadriel’s Song
Ah! like gold fall the leaves in the wind,
long years numberless as the wings of trees!
The years have passed like swift draughts
of the sweet mead in lofty halls beyond the West,
beneath the blue vaults of Varda wherein the stars
tremble in the song of her voice, holy and queenly.
shall refill the cup for me?

Celebrían, the Lady of Rivendell
She is an Elven noblewoman, the daughter of Celeborn and Galadriel, wife of Elrond, and mother of Elladan, Elrohir, and Arwen. She was called the Lady of Rivendell. Her name means “silver crown-gift” in Sindarin.
Celebrían was waylaid by Orcs in the Redhorn Pass on Caradhras in the Misty Mountains. She was captured and tormented and received a poisoned wound. She was
rescued by her sons and healed by Elrond, but “after fear and torment” she could no longer find joy in Middle-earth, so she passed to the Grey Havens and over the Sea in the following year.
B: Give them a moment, for pity’s sake!
A: At night fall, these hills will be swarming with Orcs!
What food have we got left? Let me see.
