    Summary

    Each race in Arda has a sport they usually excel in when it comes to the Olympic Winter Games. Oh sure, there is the occasional upset in the pattern, or nations that switch every few years, but for the most part hobbits conk out the competition in curling, men zoom down the ski slopes, elves dance graceful as the wind over ice in figure skating, and dwarves bash and smash their way to golden goals in hockey. Other sports may be contested between the competitors and give a variation in winners, but those sports usually tell where a nation's children will compete.

    Gimli has never prided himself on being the most usual of dwarves. And though figure skating has long been considered an Elvish sport, Gimli's passion may change all that.

    Join Gimli on his quest for victory and gold in this Olympic-inspired love story: love of sport, love of family, love of country, and, above all, the unexpected love of a rival.

    Summary

    There is no easy story in legacy. What is remembered and what is forgotten,

    Gimli and Legolas set out to explore the glittering caves. Yet it is not only caves they end up finding: Legolas finds his own internalised racism about Dwarves, and Gimli shares his Dwarven culture.

    Written for Gigolas week 2. Prompt: Culture Clash. Word count: 7,081.

    Explores memory and loss in Dwarven culture from a perspective that mirrors modern Jewish writing on memorialisation and trauma. Expands upon Tolkien's Jewish-Dwarven influence.

    Summary

    In the end, Gimli thinks, Legolas will steal his heart and sail away with it, and even the wonders of the Glittering Caves are not enough consolation for that loss.
    But when Aragorn calls for Gimli’s help in dismantling the hidden traps of Orthanc, everything changes.

    Basically, Gimli and Legolas visiting the Glittering Caves and (very discreetly) flirting like WOA !

    Summary

    Legolas, only son of the last Earl of Mirkwood, finally convinces his father to grant him one year to explore the world outside of his father's estate. He travels across the pond to the American city of Edan, where fate and a lost bow bring him face-to-face with his first real friend and his own late-blooming sexuality. Fluff and humor with a cherry (yes, that kind) on top.

    Summary

    After reclaiming Erebor, Legolas cannot say he's surprised to learn that his Guard Captain ran off with a dwarf. Planning to stalk the Crown Prince to find where the lovers ran off to, he ends up far from home with an unimpressed and overly armed older brother, a hobbit skilled in serving cookies with a healthy dose of guilt on the side, and a small red-headed tag-along that sends his head spinning in more ways than one.
