So I was talking with a friend on FB about some Hobbit fanfiction and somehow the conversation got to a point where she said “I bet Thranduil throws a five-year-old-like tantrum when people take away his wine” and I got a vey silly mental image and so sent her this
I have problems.
the fuck is this
the fuck is that
If ye say one word about th’ dress, I will have ye’ know th’ kind Misses Tilda lent it to me. Naught else fit, so stop yer bleedin’ and let me carry you!
but what if gimli went along and hauled tauriel off the battle field (even if tauriel could totally walk on her own gimli is just protecting the lady that kili loved because gimli swore to find tauriel before kili died ): ) wearing mail and helm too big and a dress borrowed from a little human girl and a beard that hasnt grown in yet i blame mckittericks (nsfw link) for the idea now im just gonna doodle company plus baby gims forever
gloin is never letting gimli out of his sight again— until gimli is too old to ground
After all the silliness, I thought maybe I should draw something more serious, but then I decided I just didn’t want to.
So, they haven’t seen each other in a while and are reunited in Minas Tirith.
In which Aragorn is a troll, Legolas is kind of amused and Gimli is seriously considering following Aragorn around and interrupting all his time with Arwen just to see how he likes it.
Gimli then gets offended that Aragorn thinks his elf is prettier. Because obviously Legolas is the prettiest elf, followed by Galadriel. There is a firstfight. Eomer joins in.
It just got 200% sillier.
welcome gimli, son of glóin, to valinor
#…oh no gimli ages doesn’t he #oh no I am compromised by the sudden awareness that near the end there legolas was probably taking care of gimli #and this was a true labor of love because however stubborn and grumpy gimli was in his prime #he is a hundred times more stubborn and grumpy when arthritis keeps him from his axe; when his hearing is failing and the glittering caves #have moved on without him; young dwarves taking up the hammers and the guardianship #and gimli feels so helpless and useless that he lashes out at everyone; bellows at young dwarves doing nothing wrong #grumps about how he fought a war for these inept ingrates and they ought to show him some respect— #and it’s legolas who has to wrestle him back into bed #listen as gimli blusters and rages and finally blows himself out #and because legolas knows that gimli is mostly deaf (that’s why the stupid dwarf shouts so much; it’s the only way for him to hear himself) #legolas doesn’t say a word; just goes on plaiting gimli’s hair; weaving little trinkets in his beard #and then he rests his cheek on the crown of gimli’s head #so his mouth is near enough that gimli will hear when he talks about the boat—the beautiful boat hewn from wood gifted by treebeard #the boat that will take them both east when the time comes #and gimli relaxes against legolas #shuts his eyes #feels a little less old and a little less useless because legolas will not go east without him and—gimli trusts in that #lord of the rings
(( IMAGINE THAT TRIP, THOUGH
Legolas holding Gimli’s hand to steady him as they walk out on deck
Gimli sitting near the bow of the ship watching the sunset, beard caught in the wind
Gimli shouting irritably up at Legolas when Legolas climbs the masts and telling him to be careful, you bloody Elf
The Elves playing music for Gimli even though he can’t hear it
Gimli leaning back and folding his hands over his beard, watching them play
Legolas sitting by Gimli’s hammock at night, slowly pushing it back and forth, rocking him to sleep and humming to him
Galadriel waiting for them on the shores of the Undying Lands
Legolas putting down a ramp for Gimli when they land at last and offering Gimli a hand
and Gimli shaking his head because no, he made it here, and he will step out onto the sands unaided, old and worn as he is, because he has lost his youth but not his pride and he will meet the Lady Galadriel as he once did: carried by his own two feet ))
Give it back! That’s private!
#WAIT DOES THIS MAKE GIMLI AND LEGOLAS ANOTHER CASE OF ”OH NO HE’S HOT”??? #LEGOLAS EYING GIMLI DURING THE COUNCIL OF ELROND—LEGOLAS SIDLING UP TO ELROND AFTERWARDS TRYING TO PLAY IT COOL #”SOOOOO THAT GINGER DWARF HE WAS SUPER ANNOYING RIGHT SO ANNOYING AND /UGLY/ REALLY UGLY BECAUSE DWARVES ARE UGLY TO US ELVES RIGHT HAHAha #…DID YOU HAPPEN TO CATCH HIS NAME BY CHANCE???” #AND ELROND WONDERS IF THIS IS SOMETHING HE SHOULD TELL THRANDUIL ABOUT #WHILE LEGOLAS TRIES TO PLACE WHERE HE’S HEARD THE NAME ”GIMLI” BEFORE #BY THE TIME HE FIGURES IT OUT THE FELLOWSHIP HAS ALREADY LEFT RIVENDELL #AND LEGOLAS FREAKS OUT FOR LIKE THREE SOLID DAYS OF WALKING BECAUSE WHAT???? #THAT’S??? NO??? #HE WISHES TAURIEL WERE THERE BECAUSE WHAT IS HE SUPPOSED TO DO WHAT THIS WAS NOT IN THE PLAN!!!! #AND GIMLI JUST NUDGES HIM IN THE THIGH AND ASKS WHETHER PRETTY ELVISH PRINCELINGS ARE TOO GOOD FOR CONVERSATION #BECAUSE SOME OF US ARE BEGINNING TO THINK YOU’VE LOST THE POWER OF SPEECH LADDIE #YES THIS IS GOOD I LIKE THIS #lord of the rings
"What the fuck did I say"
Well congrats, Wendy! Not only did I draw Tolkien fan art for the first time in my life just for you, I also made it a comic! So happy (late) birthday! I had something fluffier in mind, but then I made a Lion King reference and laughed at myself for 500 years so I’m sorry if it’s not actually funny.
sansûkh chapter 26: thorin will get it eventually
i love this fic by determamfidd so much it is a work of art
i love that legolas waited until aragorn died before he went to the west like ”i love this fucking man too much to leave now”
and when he sailed he brought gimli with him because
"i love this fucking dwarf so much i won’t leave him ever bye"
So I spotted the Middle Earth POC challenge floating about and my brain went “aw yiss lets have me some of that”. And next thing I know, its an hour later and I’ve got 32 different Sikh model reference photos and a new Gimli and Legolas doodle.
Also entitled: Gimli and Legolas are superhotties and I have ran out of vimto so its time for bed.
