    Summary

    It was unheard of, that one of the House of Oropher would succumb to that curse of the Exiles, the sea-longing.

    With the strength that saw him through three ages of the sun, Thranduil must now face the aftermath of the War of the Ring -and the losses it brought- as well as Legolas’ decision to first set up an elven settlement in Ithilien and later to sail West.

    This story explores the Legolas-shaped hole in Lasgalen during the war and how his absence, his return, and his ensuing departures may have affected his family and influenced Thranduil’s decision to finally sail West, later in the Fourth Age.

    Chapter 6: "Autumn Skirmishes " Legolas begins to understand the extent of suffering the forest -and his people- underwent in his absence as some grudges come to light, and, hopefully, to healing.

    Summary

    For weeks and months, Legolas has felt a pull - and dares not name it, does not heed its stormy-sky warnings, does not track the ebb and flow on the shoreline of his life.

    Here’s the thing about the tide, though: it rises whether one wills it or not.

    Summary

    At night they sleep on the beach above the high tide line. The tide is low when they lie down, leaving the beach stretched out silver in the moonlight, with pools of water that gleam white.

    If Elrohir lies awake long enough, he can watch the tide come in. It will come softly, the grey sea creeping up to the line of black seaweed dried by the sun. And it will come to a halt, but never to a rest, the water trying to creep higher, sometimes getting a bit closer. But it will not reach their tent.

    Summary

    Legolas is rescued from the Sea after several months lost, and Ithildim has requested Gimli put him back together... Legolas, however, is not entirely forthcoming with his experiences; Elladan is not entirely skilled in working with wood-elves; Ithildim struggles to understand this version of Legolas who has become so frustrating to love; and Gimli finds that, for all his dwarven endurance, he does in fact have finite patience. Furthermore, it is revealed that Legolas met someone at the shore with a history as tangled as the threads of his own mind, and this will shake the foundation of each of their relationships.

    Sequel to "At Sea in the Middle of Ithilien. Part 2 of 3 in "Fighting the Tide." Fourth age fic.
