I always imagined the elves of Lindon giving support and supplies to Elendil and the Faithful who washed up on shore, but for some reason, my mind never made the jump from this to the logical conclusions that they would also help those who grieved. Which is why I like this fic so much. Elrond comes as a messenger of Gil-galad, and as one who has already lost much, he helps Elendil with his own grief. Short, touching story that remembers the Faithful were not alone in their loss.

Nice story. Elendil is very believable described. Elrond seems very aloof, but this feeling I had also in LotR.

Beautiful story about the meeting of Elrond and Elendil shortly after the latter's arrival in Middle-Earth after the distruction of Numenor. Surivor's guilt is a very realistic thing, and it was good to hear the results of the storm in Middle-Earth and have Elrond give an account of what happened in Valinor, as per the communication through the pallantir in London. Good use of many canon elements.
