Project “Elrond”

We’re following Annie as she hurries into the briefing room. Venkat, Bruce, and Mitch are already there. Annie’s reading the email on her phone.

Annie: What the hell is “Project Elrond“?
Venkat: I had to make something up.
Annie: But “Elrond“?
Mitch: Because it’s a secret meeting.
Annie: How do you know that? Why does “Elrond” mean “secret meeting“?
Bruce: The Council of Elrond. It’s from Lord of the Rings. It’s the meeting where they decide to destroy the One Ring.
Teddy: If we’re gonna call something “Project Elrond“, I would like my code name to be “Glorfindel.”
Annie: Okay, I hate every one of you.
