Written for a LiveJournal meme for Browarod's prompt for "something about Galadriel." 100 words.

"It must be powerful dreary, being an elf."

"How so?"

"They don't seem to know how to smile proper. When the Lady smiled at us, it didn't reach her eyes -you know those little crinkles at the corners? She don't have 'em."

"What a thing to say about Lady Galadriel!"

"Begging your pardon, sir, but she looked sad, plain and simple. I wouldn't want to live so long, being sad."

"I'd say living so long makes her sad. I'm sure she's seen some dreadful things."

"Then why not sail like the others?"

"She still feels she has something to do."
