Elrond is gifted a broken slave from Arwen and Aragorn-- a slave that Arwen wants him to bring with him into the West. He is leaving Middle-Earth forever, but perhaps he has this one last journey in him, to help this fragile elf remember who he is and bring him home.
They weren't supposed to end up being each other's home.
(ELROND AND LEGOLAS JUST DESERVE TO BE HAPPY).

Legolas is sent to Imladris on a mission for his father. He is going to Rivendell to research all there is to learn about Dol Guldur from Lord Elrond and his large library. Elrond is an imposing and impressive figure, someone Legolas is looking forward to meeting until it all goes wrong. Elrond and Legolas are not impressed with the other when they meet them, something that leads to misunderstanding after misunderstanding until they are both weary of each other.
Both Elrond and Legolas want to represent their homes well and both feel like they are failing. It feels impossible to leave the cycle of small talk and forced politeness they find themselves in. However, in time, books and nature are two things they realize they can agree upon, and that is where they glimpse that they might be more alike than they previously thought. They start to grow closer until they are on a cusp of something new entirely: something new and thrilling and terrifying. And then Legolas is called back to Mirkwood to complete his mission, leaving them both wondering what had just happened between them. Will these proud elves ever follow their hearts back to each other? Or will they choose to protect themselves-- cutting each other off forever?
Sauron wins. Elvendom falls. And Thranduil, Galadriel, and Elrond are forced to pay the price for standing against Sauron for all those years.
Elrond is starting to find out that the price might be too high, especially after he loses more than his dignity, pride, and hope. It isn’t enough that Sauron took all that from him, no, the dark lord takes his sons from him as well.
Elrond gives up and nothing can bring him back from the darkness except for a fragile prince of Mirkwood who knows what it’s like to suffer at the hands of evil.
Will they survive or will they succumb?
