"A perfect representation of the best parts of her mixed heritage, Arwen Undomiel possesses exceptional beauty," Bilbo read, translating the Elvish for the young hobbits in front of him.

He became thoughtful. "It's the Maian that does it. But with each passing generation it gets more diluted. Everyone forgets to look to the previous generations, where it flows more strongly. How unfortunate that the true beauties of the elven race are not acknowledged, as legend only remembers the women."

Merry and Pippin exchanged a glance and then followed the old hobbit's gaze. Lord Elrond, hearing Bilbo stop talking and feeling their eyes on him, paused in his conversation to Glorfindel to glance towards the three hobbits.

The bright, late-afternoon sun illuminated three-quarters of his face in golden light, making the red highlights in his long sienna hair more pronounced, his skin seem almost luminescent and bringing out the silver flecks in his blue eyes. Presented quite literally in a different light, his beauty – which had hitherto gone unnoticed by the young hobbits – was breathtaking.

Elrond frowned slightly as he regarded the hobbits, and then turned back to Glorfindel, dismissing their staring at him as an odd quirk of the Shirefolk.
Another for the 100 Themes Challenge.

Tried to make this 100 words, failed. :XD: So it is a double drabble, with 200 words. I'm working on condensing my writing. It's harder than it looks. >.<

Hopefully it makes sense D:

Why this prompt? Well, the name 'Elrond' comes from the elvish el meaning 'star', and rond, meaning 'dome'. Star-dome, Heaven, there you go.* :P

You never really hear about the elvish guys and their beauty. There's Glorfindel's hair and Legolas being 'fair beyond the measure of men' but that's about it. :hmm: So this is my attempt to even the score a little bit.

It just seemed to me that the relative beauty of different elves is something that Bilbo would think about. :)
(That's a history book he's reading, btw.)

For the record, my Elrond looks a little like Hugo Weaving, but younger and more classically good-looking.**

Everyone belongs to Tolkien.


*Reference to My Big Fat Greek Wedding. If you don't get it, nevermind. xD
**Because as much as I love Hugo and as good-looking as he is, he shows his age a little too much for an elf - even one who is part human.

Nice :D!
It's true, the guys beauty it's not so frequently mentioned and this is unfair! In the books Arwen is said to be like Luthien, but also like Elrond in female form. Then logically Elrond is like Luthien in male form!
I'm very fond of him too ;-)

Thanks! :D
Yes, exactly! Everyone needs to shut up about Arwen and start saying how beautiful Elrond is. xD
Yay (:

:XD:Well said! It would be interesting to see how he'd react, though. I suspect he might not appreciate the idea very much. Not if it implies enduring more stares from the hobbits ;-)

I don't think he really minds being stared at that much. If he's that gorgeous then he's probably used to it :XD:
