Glorfindel knows more of Orcrist's history than he wishes to tell. (Triple drabble.)
Written for the lotr_community November 2015 challenge, with the theme of nostalgia and the prompt "belong(ed)." The title is from a line in The Lays of Beleriand.
In The Lord of the Rings, Glamdring is described as the “mate” of Orcrist, implying that they were made together. But if one sword was Turgon’s, who would have been honored with the other? And since Orcrist was a “famous blade,” why would Elrond have been unable--or perhaps unwilling--to name its owner?
