    Summary

    When Gimli is but a child, he gets lost in the mines of Ered Luin. It is dark, and it is cold, and he is alone.

    He will never recover.

    With his shaking hands and his Stonefear Gimli cannot perform as well as he wished, as a Dwarf. He can't go on a Quest to reclaim Erebor. He can't go on a Quest to reclaim Khazad-dûm.

    He can, however, force his way into the Quest to save all of Middle-Earth.

    There he meets Legolas, who reminds him too much of his friend Ori, in many ways.

    Summary

    'Surely if ever there was a time to tell Gimli it was then, flush with an impossible victory.

    Except he had said nothing, for there was ever more to do and never time, never time to pull Gimli aside and taste the mouth hidden beneath the fall of his moustache, to fit his slim, Eleven hands into ones coarse with callouses from the handle of an axe, to tell Gimli that every song Legolas sang, every smile and laugh and every step forward he had taken since their path darkened was bolstered only by Gimli at his side, to speak to him of Elvish courting rituals and run his fingers through Gimli’s russet hair and ask if he would allow Legolas to twist an Elvish braid in it, something to mark to all the world, even if only his Elven eyes would understand, that Gimli was tied to him.

    To ask Gimli to teach him all the impossible ways their bodies might fit together.'

     

    The night before the Battle of the Black Gate, and several days after.

    Summary

    Reincarnation/Second Singing AU. Modern-day Gimli is a talented sculptor just finishing up the biggest and most unprecedented project of his life – a marble statue of what looks like an elf from some kind of high fantasy novel. He’s never made anything this good before, especially not without a model – but strangely enough, he feels almost like he has seen this image before, as though in a long-ago dream - or even another life . . .
