I truly enjoyed this petite story. It really goes to show that a writer can say a lot with very few words and convey a lifetimes worth of meaning quite sparingly. In here we also have Elladan as a youngling and then shown older with apple in two different scenes and the apple does time them together as well as love that has blossomed between the two characters. Simple, lovely and as delicious as a shiny red apple. I really enjoyed this and nominated it to enhance what is represented here. I hope it is enjoyed.

Two scenes comparing and contrasting Elladan and Glorfindel's relationship from the beginning to its current state. Lovely use of the apple to point out the similarities. I adored Elladan as an elfling! He was so cute and completely irresistible! No wonder Glorfindel never stood a chance. And, I suspect that Erestor never did get rid of Elrohir as well!
