The Stiff Necks of Elves

"Are you out of your mind?"  Thranduil stares aghast across the chamber at his son.  

"Take one of the Naugrim on the Straight Road into the West?  Even were he to survive the passage – what in Middle-earth makes you think those stiff-necked Noldor and Vanyar, much less the Valar, would admit him?  I readily grant you that Gimli Gloinsson is no ordinary Dwarf – but this!"

"If Bilbo, Frodo, and by all accounts Sam were worthy, then so is Gimli Elf-friend.They will admit him." Legolas folds his arms, lifts his chin, and glares back. "Or they will not admit me."
