The Kinda Socially Isolated Ghost of Henry Hunt: Ok. Short, short version. Feanor loved Galadriel, his cousin, a bit more than was appropriate, and she found this creepy. He asked her for a stand of hair three times that he could make a work of art from it for his own aggrandizement. Galadriel refused three times.

Galadriel gives him three.

Capn' Case: Blimey, that be a shot across the bow he shan't soon forget! Thanks for speakin' yer gospel to me lad. I liked the context…
