What a great story! I love the way you portray these Elvenlords their beauty and esteem as well as their joy and pranks. What a shame that the original prank on Glorfindel backfired so badly, but thanks non the less, for it gives a marvelous story of the Twins growing up. By the way, there is a TBC at the bottom of the story. I hope you didnt abandon it...
Hannon-le for your stories,

Oh My! Most Excellent! You, Esteliel, absolutely had me laughing out loud at this chapter! It was hilarious. But poor Erestor! Being duped by that great prankster, Celeborn, was the best of all. Oh boy! When Erestor finds out the truth.. ;) :) snicker! I would love to be a fly on the wall as Glorfindel tells his story to Erestor about his day.
"Erestor bemusedly shook his head. “Glory, what…”
A broad, bright smile appeared on the Balrog Slayer’s face and the famous son of Gondolin pulled the stunned Seneschal into a very tight hug. “Ai! Hannon le! Goheno nin!”
“Let go, you oaf!” camed the muffled gasp from the shaken Seneschal. “Glorfindel! What is wrong with you?”" snort! :) :)
Loved Celeborn portrayed as such a wily fox! He was perfect in both his acts around Erestor and then with his grandsons, Elladan and Elrohir. He sure put a fright on the Twins and they'll be more careful of their pranks next time. Er! Maybe! ;) :)
It was sure great to see Glorfindel's reaction to Erestor bending down to tie Celeborn's bootlaces.
"Erestor proceeded to tie the unruly laces…for the seventh time this day!
Above him, Glorfindel’s eyes nearly dropped out of their sockets!"
Bwahahaha! :) :)
And the following scenes as Glorfy must take on the challenges of this lost bet..
"“If you tangle your bootlaces in one more statue or other protrusion, I shall personally strangle you,” the Chief of Defenses hissed to his silver-blond companion.
“Hush, Glorfindel! You have fairly lost our bet,” the Sinda smiled smugly, clumsily dropping his spoon…again!"
Fair! Ha! ;) :) One can hardly wait to see if Glorfindel finds out the truth and how he'll get back at the Golden Wood Elf.
Aww! There was a good scene as the Twins make their apologies to the Elves of Lothlorien and to Imladris. But just as Erestor thought, it will not be forgotten by Haldir and the Galadhrim. There's the tale for next time with the Twins taking on their training in Lothlorien.
I'm finally caught up to you and now I too must wait for the next chapter! sigh! Soon, please!
| Susan W chapter 11 . 3/5/2008
Finally getting to this chapter! Yay!
Ah! Celeborn finally gets to the point in asking Erestor his favor. Hmm! Something seems fishy to me!
I had to laugh as Erestor proceeded to tie a double knot in Celeborn's boot laces. snicker!
"Noticing that the laces on the Elf Lord’s boots easily came loose, Erestor proceeded to tie a double knot, but now he drew the wrath of the Sinda down upon himself.
“I must beg of you, Lord Erestor, do you wish to put me on display with my bootlaces tied as though I were a small elfling?”
Of course, everyone would know that Celeborn had not tied his own boots. ;) :) snicker!
"With a bow and a nod, the Seneschal left the room – missing the mischievous glint that appeared in the Sinda’s eyes as soon as Erestor had turned his back!" Hmm! Okay, what is that Elf up to Now?
Aww! Loved Glorfindel's warm speech to the Twins about bearing up to the punishment and taking responsibility for their actions.
Love the punishments meted out. Writing lines, helping with the laundry, cleaning gear, what youth of any race would want to spend their time doing such things when trees are calling and the great outdoors are there to explore?
heh heh heh! Loved the bit about the laundry being ellith's work. snicker! "Stomping his foot on the floor in frustration, Elladan indignantly bit his lip. They would have to do female work! The idea!" :) :)
"“Yesterday afternoon the back of my leggings turned red and a raging fire burnt in my backside unlike any I have felt since my grandfather applied his hand there,” Celeborn spoke sternly, now that he had their attention once more. “I believe it to be no more than fair that I returned the favour.”" Oh dear! One can just see the looks of astonishment and teary eyed embarassment on two elfling faces that they would be spanked by their Daerada.
Well? Did he or not! I must go to the next chapter to find out, eh?
| Susan W chapter 10 . 3/1/2008
Aww! Such a sweet and tender moment as the Twins take comfort from Glorfindel's hug of reassurance. "The twins quietly pressed themselves against the broad chest of the Chief of Defenses, hiding their faces in the white-golden brocade, weeping softly as they nestled in the Balrog Slayer’s embrace."
"“Nínim-nín, be a good elfling and tell your father what you have gotten him for his begetting day,” Celeborn teased, tugging on a strand of his daughter’s silver hair.
“A pair of bottom-warmers,” Elrond chortled." snicker! Celeborn is going to want Elrond to work on his bedside manners if that kind of response continues. ;) :)
And the truth is finally out of the bag! And Celeborn has the sudden realization that he might have been the one to instigate the prank on Glorfindel that went afoul. "The silver-blue eyes slowly widened as a terrible thought crossed his mind." "Celeborn hid his face in his pillow and groaned from the bottom of his heart." and the confession; "“I asked them to avenge me,” he confessed quietly."
Me thinks that next time Celeborn might give a little more thought before he tells a certain two little elflings to prank someone in his honor. ;) :)
What punishment will the Twins receive for their deeds. Confessing to and asking for forgiveness from the 16 warriors will be a frightening task for the elflings. But what more will they have to do to complete their punishment.
Onward I go to find out.

Most excellent! I loved the bit of background history for Celeborn and Glorfindel. Shame on me, but I never read "The Silmarilion". After reading some good fanfics where the author dabbles a bit into the history to give depth to a character, it has made me want to read more into the history of the Elves. Some day I may attack that volumn, but not right now, as I enjoy the fanfics here too much. :) :)
Celeborn is still in pain, however, the stubborn elf cannot help but banter with Glorfindel and chide him for "brattiness". snicker!
"“Lord Glorfindel approaches with a prisoner!” one of the look-outs had announced." snicker! Oh boy! Poor Celeborn! A most un-regal position to be in draped over a horse as he is upon entering Imladris and in view of it's citizens. :P
Not the auspicious entrance that one would want to have!
"Erestor clearly remembered the pranks that had been played on the company of Elves under his command during the Last Alliance. As they had traveled south along the banks of Anduin, it had been downright frustrating to wake up and find the outside of their tents adorned with garlands of yellow flowers, or to find their bows and tack gracefully decorated with pink and purple ribbons."
This one was hilarious, and then I came to the drawing of "Erestor-in-dress" prank which was even better, especially as Gil-galad and Elendil shared a copy of it at the high table. :) :) snicker!
Aww! I love this sweet scene as Erestor must try to comfort two little elflings who still have no idea their prank has gone awry. "Erestor stared blankly at the opposite wall. ‘Elbereth, help me,’ he prayed, wrapping an arm around each of the elflings."
So now the tale has been told and the dear little Twins must wait for their parents to give them punishment. That wait must seem like a lifetime!
Ah yes! But first the elflings must disobey once more and go check on their Daerada in the Healing House. That is until they heard their mother's tone of voice while she spoke to Celeborn. snicker!
"Elrohir and Elladan swallowed uncomfortably when they recognized the sternness in their mother’s voice. It would be very unwise to enter the healing room now." Doh! ;) :)
They definitely were not expecting this; "A sudden firm hand on Elrohir’s shoulder and in Elladan’s neck made the elflings spin around in fright.
“Glorfindel!” Elladan wanted to exclaim." Oh joy! ;) :) "“I want to talk to you, elflings.”" I can hardly wait to hear what he tells them, but I must wait for tomorrow to go on to the next chapter. sigh! Too late and I'm too sleepy! :(
I was going to PM you, however, that must also wait until tomorrow now. sigh, again!
Onward I go!

A most excellent copy/pastable chapter! :) :)
"“If someone wanted to attack Imladris, why did they have to do so today?” he muttered quietly." Well, someone had bad timing. ;) :) Hmm! Two little elflings?
"In his mind, the prank had gone awfully astray." Oh! He doesn't know the half of it yet! I feel sorry for the elflings having to wait to hear what was going on.
Loved Erestor's thoughts about the peace that the elves of Imladris had been living under for such a short amount of time. Also love the picture you have drawn of Erestor as the "solid rock" to be leaned when needed. "Giving himself a mental shake, Erestor returned to the present and his task as the solid rock his Lord’s family would lean on in this moment of doubt." :) :)
Oh no no! Poor Elrond, as he sees the Galadhrim in such a state of agitation. Of course, to his thinking it must mean one thing! Schwew! As he learns the cause of the agitation.
"“And the culprit?” she asked faintly, .."
“Lord Glorfindel believes that the culprits reside in this House, my Lady,” the sentry smiled kindly." If only the said culprits knew that their game was up and could prepare themselves for the consequences of being in trouble. They just cannot fathom why everyone is upset over Uruin on Glorfindel's saddle and his red seat when their Daerada is greviously wounded. Poor little ones!
"“I shall escort Elrohir and Elladan to their room, my Lady,” Erestor nodded humbly. He placed two calm, loving hands on the shoulders of the twins, who had unconsciously grasped each other’s hands. The sons of Lord Elrond and Lady Celebrían were in enough trouble as it was, he felt no need to add any more reproval to it." I just love this portrayal of Erestor in this tale.
"“Please, my Lord, you must come with me to the House. Elrond will tend to you, as he did to your grandsons last week,” he pleaded.
“I am not…leaving this place!” Celeborn snapped from his position in the middle of the shallow stream."
"Celeborn sat with his blazing backside planted firmly in the icy water, the velvet cloak that Glorfindel had wrapped around his waist for modesty billowing in the flow of the current."
What an hilarious sight that was. Of course Celeborn's guards don't think so. ;) :) I love the exasperated Glorfindel! I would hate to be in his position to move the obstinate mule, Celeborn. snort! Not much that Elrond was able to do either after arriving on the scene. Even the threat of his daughter and grandsons seeing him sitting in the water budged Celeborn from his cool seat.
OH! I have to add this scene as Glorfindel explains how Celeborn will get to Imladris hence to the Healing House.
"“You seem to forget…I am rather…unable to…ride,” Celeborn scoffed angrily. “Lack the…seat for it…”
“You will have to lie face down across the horse,” Glorfindel explained, trying to find more patience. “Trust us, Celeborn. Eirien is very swift, it is the quickest way to get you to the House. Once we have you there, your pain will lessen in a twinkle.”
Elrond’s eyebrows rose a few inches. “Do you have a death-wish?” he wordlessly asked his Chief of Defenses." heh heh heh!
Celeborn bared his teeth in a sneer.
“First you want me to…arrive regally…as a Lord…riding your horse,” the Elf Lord panted with difficulty. “…And now you will have me…dragged into Rivendell…dangling over your saddle…as a captive?”
“No saddle, I said Eirien was unsaddled,” Glorfindel replied stoically, ignoring the obvious dent in the Elf Lord’s pride." Thats our Balrog Slayer! He's not afraid of Celeborn or the Galadhrim! snicker!
And finally Celeborn gets dragged out of the water. Loved his demand to be carried with the softly spoken "please" for Glorfindel's ears only. ;) :)
Lovely chapter! Onward I go!
*explanation for Esteliel01 on the word "schwew" - mm! Not name calling, but an expression of relief with the release of breath in a puff and sometimes a swipe of the hand at the forehead. ;) :) Well, the puff of breath has a schwewing sound to it, and that's the only spelling I can come up with for that sound. snicker!
