Rating: PG-13 for angst. No slash. Any mentioned love is either familial or brotherly love. I don't write slash.

Summary: My first Silmarillion fan fic and non-LOTR fanfic—a prose poem about Elrond and Elros.


Inseparable, Even Unto Death

I chose the way of the Firstborn,

The way of immortality,

Of unending life.

oOo

My choice was not an easy one,

But a hard one,

One that took much thought.

oOo

I wonder what it would be like if I chose something different,

Like my brother.

oOo

Had I chosen a mortal's life,

My life on this earth would be short,

Ephemeral.

oOo

But I do not regret my choice.

It was destiny.

Elrond

TTTTTTTTTTTT

I chose the way of the Secondborn,

The way of mortality,

Of a short life.

oOo

My choice was not an easy one,

But a hard one,

One that took much thought.

oOo

I wonder what it would be like if I chose something different,

Like my brother.

oOo

Had I chose an immortal's life,

My life on earth would be long,

Everlasting.

oOo

But I do not regret my choice.

It was destiny.

Elros

TTTTTTTTTTTTTT

Though we chose two different roads,

Two different lives,

Many things do not change.

oOo

We are still brothers,

Bound by blood,

By our oaths.

oOo

Though the years will stretch long,

Though a time may come when we can no longer meet,

We are inseparable,

Even unto death.

oOo

We will never say goodbye,

Only a last farewell.

Elrond and Elros
