    Summary

    Legolas visits Rivendell for the first time./Legolas meets Elrond's children for the first time as a baby in Mirkwood.

    ***
    Legolas wanders along the river bank, arms stretched out at his sides like wings.

    'Elrond, I like that your river speaks to me!' he sings.

    ‘What does it say?’ Celebrían asks him. She holds onto Legolas’s hand so that he won’t tip over into the river.

    ‘Lots of things. I think it’s jealous of you,’ Legolas answers earnestly. Celebrían shakes her head. ‘It is,’ Legolas insists. ‘Thinks Elrond loves you more.’ Celebrían doesn’t argue.

    Summary

    Legolas is Aragorn's guide through Mirkwood.

    ***

    ‘Your legs are so long,’ Legolas says. He hasn’t lain down again.

    Aragorn nods. He isn’t committed to a conversation. He is listening to the rain. It’s been a long time since he was last in company. He keeps forgetting to speak or even acknowledge Legolas’s existence.

    ‘What are you thinking?’ Legolas asks.

    Legolas stares at him with eyes that are too bright, too large. But his smile is gentle, easing. He is a prince. He is young. What does he know of the outside world?

    Aragorn isn’t old yet, but he feels old. He broke his ankle three years ago, and it will never heal right. The knee on the same leg has gone bad, aching inside of him, and he is finding grey in his hair.

    Legolas is older than him, so much older, so much younger. He is bright and strange and dangerous and kind. His hair is braided again and again. His fingers are too long.

    ‘Nothing will hurt us here,’ Legolas says. That could be true. But it isn’t. There are memories and nightmares moving around in his mind and making every shadow into a threat. The great trees could come tumbling down.
