Gen Relationship Aragorn & Legolas Friendship is a popular genre of fanfiction within the The Lord of the Rings fandom. While it is not. Gandalf, Arwen, and Elrond are just the tip of the massive iceberg of possibilities. But the one topic I would love to see most is Aragorn's relationship with .. such as Galadriel, Saruman, Legolas, Gollum, and Bilbo Baggins.
He had asked why he couldn't be allowed to wear a much simpler outfit something more suited to his personality however his father had admonished him, stating that his appearance was a reflection upon the wealth that Mirkwood offered to any who wished to ally with them. Of course the alliance would come through Legolas' marriage.
Hence their attendance at this ball. He was the only son of the King of Mirkwood but this was not his only value as outlined by his father.
His father had told him many times of the powerful and dark sorcerer Sauron, and that although the allied men and elves had been victorious against the evil sorcerer an age ago, before Legolas himself had been born, Sauron had had the last laugh. He had cast a powerful spell from which few escaped.
The result of which was decreased fertility amongst the elves. Fewer elven children had been born since the war, and fewer still would be born. In an attempt to rectify this, the elves had gathered their own most powerful magic users and a spell was cast to increase the fertility once again. However this was not wholly successful and the results had manifested themselves in a strange way.
Fertile elves were still few and far between however the spell had allowed some male elves to become capable of bearing children. This meant of course that any elf capable of bearing children was highly sought after as a partner. Legolas was such an elf. Legolas regretted that the political aspirations of his father would affect his freedom.
He knew that tonight his father would begin the process of finding him a mate. He would have little say in the choice and could only hope that his father had some compassion.
Legolas berated himself mentally. His father was not an unfair person; he merely had duties that meant sometimes it was difficult to be a father first. Legolas understood this and resolved to try to do more to assist his father in creating new alliances to protect Mirkwood.
Finally after some adjustments to his outfit Thranduil deemed Legolas ready to be presented to the high society of Middle Earth. He faced his son and a tender look crossed his features. I wish you had the freedom I did in choosing a partner, however the times begrudge us such luxuries and we must do what we can for Mirkwood.
Then just as abruptly he was all business again. He pulled Legolas behind him as they made their way to the ballroom.
They were announced to the already large crowd of noble men and elves. Heads turned to see the King and Crown Prince of Mirkwood, and Legolas became aware of the many lusting gazes set upon him.
He felt his father's hand on his arm and drew comfort from the support as they made their way through the crowd. They did not have to wait long until their host made his appearance.
Aragorn & Legolas Friendship
Legolas could not see Crown Prince Elessar as he made his entrance. He was far too busy trying to keep his feet and not get separated from his father as Thranduil forced his way through the crowd.
Finally there was a break in the crowd and Legolas found himself face to face with a young man with the most striking eyes that seemed to be changing colour constantly from blue to grey, then his sight of the stranger was gone as the crowds surged forward once more.
Thankfully Denethor it seemed had seen his plight and taken pity for suddenly the music started a lively beat and the room cleared to make space for dancing. Seeing his chance to escape the throng for a short time at least Aragorn quickly espied one not so bold young maiden and asked her mother's permission for the maiden in question to join him in a dance.
And so it began, Aragorn swept the girl on to the dance floor in a lively dance that did not allow for conversation. Legolas was not as lucky in having the freedom to choose his dance partner. As soon as the dancing began several people, men and women both approached his father requesting permission for Legolas to join them in a dance. Thranduil seemed to size them up before granting permission to an older gentleman in a very expensive outfit.
Legolas was spirited away his hand clasped tightly in one hand and his shoulder gripped firmly in another and Legolas repressed an uncomfortable shudder. He looked closely at his dance partner. He was an older man with grey just beginning to streak his sandy brown hair and Legolas just stopped himself from curling his lips in disgust as he saw that the hair was slicked back with some form of grease.
The man's face had some lines brought with age, but Legolas noted that few of these were around the mouth and eyes, which gave the impression that this man did not laugh or indeed even smile very often. The stranger had cold blue eyes and the elf did not like the way they seemed to roam freely over his body. As his father had noticed, the man's clothes were very rich in both taste and cloth and they fit his body outlining his heavy muscular build. A wealthy one they say, and you, are you fertile?
Legolas gritted his teeth and sent dark thoughts his father's way for allowing this man to dance with him. I require heirs and I cannot afford to tie myself to something that can't breed. For the first time the man smiled and Legolas did not feel warmed by the cold look in the man's eyes. It will be between your father and I. He did not look back as he made his way swiftly back to his father's side and did not see the hungry look cast back at him by the man standing still alone on the dance floor.
Although his attention had been taken from time to time in a scan of the room attempting to locate the elf that had caught his attention earlier. Then he had caught a glimpse of the elf dancing with his cousin Boromir. As soon as the dance ended Aragorn had bowed politely to his partner before returning her to her mother's side.
He then moved over to Lord Elrond who was standing at the side of the room with a small group of older elves. Elrond noticed his foster son approach and excused himself from his friends before making his way over to join Aragorn. Elrond frowned in concentration casting his mind back to his perusal of the dancers. He recalled Boromir dancing with a blonde elf, then recollection hit him and he smiled. Elrond laughed, "Indeed, I believe his father has brought him here tonight in the hopes of finding his son a husband or wife, so that he may build a stronger alliance for his kingdom.
He was disappointed though as he noticed that Legolas was already back out on the dance floor, this time leading a young elven maiden around in a more sedate dance. His own attention was caught by another young maiden who was pushed towards him by her mother. But what do we really know about this legend from Middle-earth besides his intense Elf-on-Dwarf relationship with Gimli? He's A Geezer Despite his youthful good looks Legolas is one of the most elderly characters in Tolkien's tale.
The author never says how old Legolas actually is, but the immortal Elf refers to Aragorn who is 87 at the start of the quest and Gimli pushing as mere "children" compared to himself. And Legolas claims that he has seen "many an oak grow from acorn to ruinous age.

What's the Sindarin word for geezer? He's A Stoner Legolas can hear what stones are thinking. In the ruins of Hollin near the Gates of Moria, he hears the geology itself lamenting the loss of the Elves who used to live there long ago. His psychic connection to the landscape is not limited to rocks. In Fangorn Forest he senses what the trees are feeling and this awareness takes his breath away.
And he does this all without the benefit of psychotropic drugs. Unless, of course, he's been smokin' those mallorn leaf lembas wrappers. He Has Superpowers Legolas has extreme hearing, telescopic vision, never gets tired or cold, and can defy gravity see 6. And Thranduil loathes Dwarves.
This might account for some of the latent hostility between Legolas and Gimli when they first meet at Rivendell. According to Tolkien, Elves could even dream while moving about, "blending living night and deep dream. Later on Legolas naps with his eyes wide open, which if you've ever seen someone do it, looks really freaky.
