shiPS WITH THE TALLER PERSON BENDING OVER TO KISS THE SHORTER ONE AND THE SHORTER ONE STILL HAS TO STAND ON TIP TOES TO REACH THE TALLER ONE
Stayed up all night and then worked for another forty minutes just now. Finally, a finished Deer-Centaur!Legolas and Satyr!Gimli piece.
I’ve finally read enough Gigolas fics to do a rec list, so go me!
First and foremost, Sansûkh. This fic will make you believe that a dwarf and an elf can be an otp. (don’t be dissuaded by its wip status. It’s ongoing and it’s one of those fics that are so good that you won’t even care if the world ends and it never gets updated. Plus it has bagginshield as a main pairing, so you can read it for that alone.)
The Pirates of Erebor. Pirate!AU in which Prince Legolas crossdresses in order to spare the Lady Linnaril being captured and spies on the dwarves for his people. If that premise isn’t enough incentive, then I just can’t help you.
From One Age to Another. Gloin and Thranduil discover that their sons are involved. Pretty much what you’d expect to happen, but what I love is how passionate Gimli and Legolas talk about and defend the other.
On the Cold Hill Side. Post-LOTR, Gimli and Legolas go to the Glittering Caves and Fangorn together while Gimli wonders why Legolas hasn’t left yet. This is the kind of angst I never get tired of: angst that has no basis in fact but it’s what a stubborn ass character will believe until the truth knocks him on the head.
Inside the Stone and its sequel Where the Heart Is. In a turn from the previous rec, it’s Legolas who thinks Gimli doesn’t want to stay. It’s also the most porny thing I’ve read of them that is written well and not a pwp.
So Cloaked and Crowned. H/C at its finest. Gimli gets his beard and hair cut by dwarves who hate elves. This one hurts, but it’s also about healing and true beauty.
The Sound Below Sound. Book canon, Gimli is afflicted by the presence of the dead more than the others. This one takes its time, but it’s entirely worth the journey. Also I am a deep sucker for one or both halves of an pairing secretly giving or doing things to the other that are more than friendly but later have to admit it. Beautiful.
Braids. Hair-braiding means different things to dwarves and elves. The ultimate hair-braiding fic, and it ALSO has the previous rec’s trope. Oh, and did I mention jealousy? I’m surprised that jealousy is a rare thing to find in this fandom, but pleased as well because when it’s used it’s used right.
Lost and Found. Galadriel sends Legolas and Gimli off to find an amulet that brings couples in love good luck. Hmm, wonder why they seem so lucky all of a sudden? I had hoped to find a fic of Lady Galadriel being like the Merlin slash dragon, and here it is.
i first i thought you were talking bout this one
but those are super cute. i’m a bit tempted to buy them aghhhhhh!

Gimli and Legolas buddycop!AU is just magical
Trying to fiddle with Legolas’s hair so it fit regulations was not magical.
When I AU, I AU hard guys.
There’s more where this came from.
Ok so I was borrowing my dad’s old copy of The Two Towers. I’m pretty sure that on the cover its supposed to be Legolas and Gimli.
Is it just me or does Legolas look like Barbie?
The Three Hunters~forever together~helping each other~till the end~my favourite trio !
#373 I want Legolas to finger me, then put his whole hand inside me, then his other hand then both his arms and then his head and his shoulders and his body then his legs and feet and I want him to live inside me and control me. I am Legolas.
