Fic: ‘Tis the Season: Her first snow.  
Title: ‘Tis the Season: Her first snow.
Fandom: Lord of the Rings (movies).
Rating: (G)
Time Period: After events in Lord of the Rings: the Return of the King.
Summary: It was the first snow ever seen.

Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q.).

For these last ‘Tis the Season stories, beginning with The silent sentinel, I’d been inspired by random words! The silent sentinel had been inspired by ‘winter’, as an impromptu prompt, and this one had ‘snow’ as its prompt.

Soft white flakes fell from the unfamiliar darkened sky. By the window, she sat with a hand pressed against the wall, in awe of this marvel which she had never known; her father’s home and grandmother’s woods had been kept safe from winter, always remaining a gentle spring or mellow summer.

“Come with me.” A hand was held to her; a familiar hand, half covered by a glove.

Her attention moved, from the whirling dance outside the window to the Man standing beside her, a half-smile gracing his lips. “Where are we going?” Her hand slipped into his and she rose from where she sat, following where he led.

“You shall see,” he promised with a soft laugh.

It was then she noticed he wore his old, battered cloak with its leafy clasp and her eyes narrowed in thought until she gasped from the sudden cool, wet touch upon her cheek. She glanced about them, realising he had led her outside, into the cold dance she had watched from the window. With a delighted laugh, she raised a hand to the sky; snowflakes settled within her hair.

“Welcome,” he murmured by her ear, “to the first snow.”

Hah! I love it. Arwen and her first snow. I've always thought snow was particularly romantic; just a shame I've never been around it since I was old enough to appreciate this.

Yeah actually; it was. There aren't a lot of things more romantic than a couple having fun in the snow.

Oh this is absolutely beautiful ♥ It would have been amazing for Arwen to see her first snow after living so long in lands that are spring/summer!

And how sweet are they together, out playing in the snow ♥

Beautiful ♥

Thank you very much. I wasn't certain if I hit the 'right notes' to bring any of that out and I was hoping I had.

Thank you.
