“But the Queen Arwen said: ‘A gift I will give you. For I am the daughter
of Elrond. I shall not go with him now when he departs to the Havens;
for mine is the choice of Luthien, and as she so I have chosen, both the
sweet and the bitter. But in my stead you shall go, Ring-bearer, when
the time comes, and if you then desire it. If your hurts grieve you
still and the memory or your burden is heavy, then you may pass into the
West, until all your wounds and weariness are healed. But wear this now
in memory of Elfstone and Evenstar with whom your life has been woven!’ And
she took a white gem like a star that lay upon her breast hanging upon a
silver chain, and she set the chain around Frodo’s neck. ‘When the
memory of the fear and the darkness troubles you,’ she said, ‘this will
bring you aid.”

And Aragorn the King Elessar wedded Arwen Undomiel in the City of the Kings upon the day of Midsummer, and the tale of their long waiting and labours was come to fulfilment.
I saw a fire moon once. It rose over the pass near Dunland. Huge. Red and gold it was. It filled the sky. We were an escort for some merchants from Ered Luin. They were trading in silverwork for furs. We took the Greenway south keeping the mountain to our left. And then it appeared. This huge fire moon lighting our path. I wish i could show you the caverns.
