Oh, poor Elrond. I felt so sorry for him. Whatever it is that newly married couples are meant to do, going through someone else's clothing and possessions probably isn't on the list. The contrast of his thoughts and focus to Celebrian's rant - and rant it was - were pretty much what I'd expect of a man after a mere three months of marriage. She would have been furious of course, in a satisfied sort of way, had she realised it. The description of the painting was lovely - fountain, yellow flowers, yes that rings bells. Wonder if he painted it himself? The cloak must have a wonderful story behind it. I found my mind wandering down old bunny trails while I was reading about it. And of course I wonder what's in the chest. I enjoyed this look at a lovely couple and the hints of mystery around one of my favourite elves.

This is hilarious. Elrond and Celebrian are really on different planes in this conversation. Elrond trying to get his wife back to his rooms and Celebrian intent on solving the riddle of Erestor. I love how Elrond interprets everything Celebrian says through his newlywed mind and extrapolates what he would like to do contrary to what Celebrian's intent is. And the picture of Celebrian diving into Erestor's drawers is just too funny.

Such a fun little ficlet! It's nice to see Elrond in something other than Master Of Imladris mode, and definitely fun to see him getting frisky with his wife. I enjoyed this immensely.
