Rating: G
Theme: Pairs
Elements: night, day.

Author's Notes: I struggle with true drabbles – not disciplined enough, lol.
Summary: A firm note from Galadriel to her brother, Finrod
Word Count: 100 (hand counted)

Dear Findaráto.

Your idea of marrying me off to King Thingol’s nephew, Celeborn, is your most ludicrous yet. Yes, it would mean I could remain here and continue my studies, yes it would give us, as you so indelicately put it, an ear at the Sindarin court, but you seem to overlook one important fact: Celeborn and I have NOTHING IN COMMON. I am outgoing, adventurous, resolute. He is introspective, fond of home and family,
set in his ways
content. In other words, it would NEVER work - we are like night and day.

The answer is no!

Your sister,
Artanis.

And she seems so sure of herself, too :D

Thanks for reading and commenting.

Aha, there's a letter her brother must have treasured! Everyone likes to be able to tell their siblings they told them so. Lovely, thank you!

Typical older brother, I'm sure he couldn't resist quoting it word for word when she told him they planned to bind *g*.

Thanks for reading, so glad you liked it!

*snicker* Why do I have a feeling Finrod is going to lord this over Galadriel for years to come?

I'm wondering if she managed to persuade him not to share it with Celeborn at some later date *g*.

Thanks very much for commenting!

LOL! I love it! I can just imagine her brother "blackmailing" her with it in years to come!

Aw, I'm so glad you liked it :) I can definitely see him reminding her of this every chance he got - typical big brother behaviour, lol.

*laughing* Very nice!
I'd like to know what she'll think some day about this letter. :)

I suspect she's going to look back on this and feel rather embarrassed, lol!

Thanks for reading and commenting :)

Hee! I, too, can see him hanging on to this - possibly having it framed in his study...

... Brought out on special occasions, notably when he thinks his sister is likely to disagree with him. Yes :D

Glad you liked it, thanks for commenting.

*grins* Others have already said "famous last words" so I'll try not to repeat it. But I definitely echo the sentiment. I like the idea that Galadriel wasn't initially receptive to marriage with Celeborn. Perhaps she needs to get know this guys a little better... Maybe he'll surprise her.

The only full story I've written about them had her knowing from the start that they fit together, but despite that I somehow think they're so different her first reaction might well have been 'you have got to be joking', LOL. And yes, I think she found hidden depths there quite fast.

Thanks very much for commenting, glad you liked it.

Heh, pleased you enjoyed it. Thank you! I knew what I wanted to say but I flailed around quite a bit till I thought of her writing a note. And I'm so glad her 'voice' worked for you.

Ahaha. Galadriel's right, she just hasn't grasped that differences attract. I do love that letter and all her reasons for not marrying Celeborn.

She reasoned it all out quite logically, I thought *grin*. Just missed that one tiny but important fact.

Thanks very much for commenting, glad you liked it.

Obviously she has not heard the saying Opposites attract! :)

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)
