The Flame of Swords by Zdenka

Author: Zdenka
Title: The Flame of Swords
Rating: PG
Theme: Nostalgia
Elements: belong(ed)
Author's Notes: In The Lord of the Rings, Glamdring is described as the “mate” of Orcrist, implying that they were made together. But if one sword was Turgon’s, who would have been honored with the other? And since Orcrist was a “famous blade,” why would Elrond have been unable--or perhaps unwilling--to name its owner?

Title from a line in The Lays of Beleriand. Warning for foreshadowed character death and excessive footnotes.

Summary: Glorfindel knows more of Orcrist's history than he wishes to tell.
Word Count: 300
