What if Elrond had possession of the One Ring at the end of the battle?
Gil-Galad dies, of course, as well as Elendil. But for some reason, Elrond comes into poseesion of the One Ring instead of Isildur. Would there be a possibility that he would have been swayed by the One Ring? What would that possibility be? (or would there be none at all?) This is an idea I've pondered for a long while.
Imagine that all other canon factors are still in place. Answer with whatever you think might have happened, but try not to carry it out too far -- leave some room for someone to add on. For example, Bob could write "Boromir wouldn't go crazy." and Larry could add "And then Frodo wouldn't have left the fellowhip." If you don't agree with what someone else thought would be the outcome, post your own idea -- if you think Frodo would have left, take advantage of the way the LJ comment system works and start a new branch of that train of thought.
