Lovely! To me one of the ripest areas for "gap-filling" is the time spent at Rivendell before the start of the quest, and this works very well. I really liked the idea that Legolas started very certain about his opinion of dwarves, Quenya, etc. and ends with a more open mind. This sets up the idea that Legolas could become friends with Gimli quite nicely. One  tiny nitpick, near the beginning of the story you have secrete when I believe you mean secret.

Thanks, J11T37.

I did post a reply to your much appreciated comment; however, it appears that it's not showing, so I'll have another go at it. Hopefully, it won't end up showing up twice now.

Anyway, I agree completely: the time between the Council of Elrond and the actual start of the quest is a ripe period for gap-filling (Thank you, Professor Tolkien!).

 And thank you, thank you, thank you for pointing out my typo. Just when I think my beta and I have found everything . . .  Smile  It's fixed now.
