  1. Summary

    Short pieces of domestic fluff.

  2. Summary

    This is pretty much what is says on the tin: short one-shots revolving rather loosely around Gimli or Legolas speaking their heart to the other. And that's about all they have in common, since they weren't intended as a series in the first place, so proceed at your own risk :)

    Summary

    Legolas can fight if provoked, negotiate if absolutely necessary, and open up to close friends. But ask him to interact on a friendly but distant level, and he turns into a nervous wreck. When Elrond asks him to join the Fellowship of the Ring, he is far less anxious about the enemies they will have to face than about the eight companions with whom he will be traveling.

    Gimli is fully ready to reach out a hand in friendship to the elf in their group – until he perceives that Legolas is not ready to return the favor. He spends the early days of their Quest seething with resentment.

    Their stay in Lothlorien opens the door to new understanding between them, leading to a friendship – or more – that will be sung of for ages.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The best new Gimli/Legolas story I have seen in a long time! An excellent premise and spot-on characterization.
