Fic: ‘Joyful greetings.’  
Title: Joyful greetings.
Fandom: Lord of the Rings (movies).
Rating: (G)
Time Period: During Arwen’s childhood.
Summary: His first visit to Elrond.

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

Thinking upon Tra-la-la lally, I didn’t think that was the first time that traveller had been greeted thus and I wondered if the antics of a young Arwen could have been at work.

After all, Elven children at play, being mischievous ... it doesn’t mean they wouldn’t the play trick on him again another time or make it a greeting for travellers coming into the valley.

This comes before Tra-la-la lally.

He slows his mount as they enter the valley, careful of the path.

Tra-la-la lally

He narrows his eyes as he hears the song; he lowers his head and all that can be seen is his pipe from under the brim of his hat.

Tra-la-la lally

He sees the Elven lanterns moving among the trees. Should he dismount and seemingly chase the lights?

No; he’s comfortable where he is.

Tra-la-la lally

He can hear the joy in the song and he watches as his horse walks along the path; blue smoke rings seek to join the stars beginning to peep shyly above.

Tra-la-la lally

He knows this is the way to Rivendell but no one had told him of the greeting he would receive. In the gathering dark, he sees the lantern light moved by small hands not covered by dusk grey cloaks. He chuckles to himself and, discreetly, shakes his head.

The light abruptly vanishes.

Tra-la-la lally

As he nears the Last Homely House, he sees a small figure dart ahead, fleet of foot among the trees.

Tra-la-la lally

Elrond descends steps to greet the Grey Pilgrim at his door; at his side is a slight figure, dark of hair and grey of eyes. In that moment, he sees a tall, graceful Lady sewing a sable banner with a White Tree.
