1. Dark Elf

Dark Elf

Suddenly the great bow of Lórien sang. High above, a dark shape veered towards them with a croaking cry of triumph and swooped downwards.

The elf turned to face his companions with a cold, feral grin. The ring on its slender chain dangled from his long fingers. “My Lord knows of our presence. He will be here shortly.” He regarded their shock contemptuously. “Surely you did not think Gollum escaped from Mirkwood? I released him.” He turned and called into the night. “Come here, my pet.”

Gollum crept from the shadows and rubbed lovingly against Legolas. “Yess, master,” he crooned.

Thanks, Alassante!

It was creepy to imagine this scene, but I got a macabre thrill from writing it.  I don't want to see this Legolas again!

For when I feel like a few chills... Contemplating how easily it might all have gone Very Wrong at so many points, and all the terrible consequences, makes me appreciate how slender a thread Middle-earth's fate sometimes hung by, and how glad we should be that all fell out as it did.
Included because: Legolas turns to the Dark Side. Ooh, chills, chills.
