"I have pledged myself to Aragorn, adar; and given him my heart. Together we shall abide the Doom of Men."
My daughter’s words strike me like a blow. Long have I feared the day when a child of mine would forsake the Eldar. I still miss my brother, through all the long years since we were sundered.
Were Aragorn an Elf, I could rejoice with my whole heart. None of my many fosterlings have become so close a son to me as Estel.
And yet, if my brother chose a mortal life, how can I deny it to my child?
