Format: short story
Genre: gen, experimental
Rating: T
Warnings: Not a happy fic! Non-linear narrative; also spoilery warnings )

Creator’s Notes (optional): I’m trying to getting back into B2MeM by finishing a lingering WIP from B2MeM 2014. Many thanks to avanti_90 for beta-reading this. The title is from this quote: ‘The love of the Elves for their land and their works is deeper than the deeps of the Sea, and their regret is undying and cannot ever wholly be assuaged. Yet they will cast all away rather than submit to Sauron: for they know him now.’ (The Fellowship of the Ring, “The Mirror of Galadriel”)
Summary: Celebrimbor takes refuge in memory. (Finding out wherever there is comfort there is pain, only one step away . . .)

Edited to add: When I said acrostic, I meant the usual definition of a poem, word puzzle, or other composition in which certain letters in each line form a word or words. Except, since this isn't a poem, it's sentences that matter here, not lines. Oh, and there are three phrases to be found here: a clue, and two snarky solutions.
