A Horse of Rohan - determamfidd - The Lord of the Rings - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
Perhaps by carrying two such unusual riders, this horse has become something like them. Growing Elflike and Dwarflike together: some of Gimli's stout loyalty and stubbornness, some of Legolas' free light humour and wild spirit. Something remarkable.

Or perhaps he was always remarkable, and it took the travels of an Elf and Dwarf to bring it to light. [3205]

Little Differences - Amuly - The Lord of the Rings (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Four Things Legolas and Gimli Found Differed Between Them... and One Thing That Was the Same [5265]
“You lie with this hairless tall one, who looks down his nose at us from his highest seat as first born?!”

“You allow one of those mistakenly-created imperfect ones to lie with your blessed figure?”

Abruptly the hall erupted, simmering tensions between the two sides of the table finally bubbling over into a full, roaring boil. Dwarves jumped onto the table and stormed across it: elves threw them to the ground like they were ripe fruit falling to the forest floor. Legolas and Gimli stood on opposite sides of the table, staring longingly at each other as their families battled it out.

Aragorn sat with his head on the table, while Arwen rubbed his back and looked on her kinsmen disapprovingly.

Bound to You - Angela - The Lord of the Rings - J. R. R. Tolkien [Archive of Our Own]
Legolas does not think the way other elves do. He does not do things the way other elves do. He does not want the things other elves want.

And as for Gimli - well, Legolas doesn't know what to think or do or want where Gimli is concerned. [6405]

In the end, Gimli thinks, Legolas will steal his heart and sail away with it, and even the wonders of the Glittering Caves are not enough consolation for that loss. But when Aragorn calls for Gimli’s help in dismantling the hidden traps of Orthanc, everything changes. [24,938]

At dawn she walks from Imladris, the only maiden within a Company of men, her breasts bound and the insults of a disgruntled dwarf within her ears. Although her chest is compressed and her hair strangely braided, she has never felt more free. [2434]

The world has changed. Middle-earth is no more. The Valar have departed, or they are dead. Only one remains to stir the dust of forgotten lands beneath his feet, waiting to fulfil his promise. [6239]

[ugh, this is so freaking beautiful, and so unexpected. I was never quite sure where this was going, but I was pretty sure it was going to end in heartbreak; the happy ending was a wonderful (kinda teary ngl) surprise.]

The Hobbit Kink Meme - Tolkien Prompt post -- Cardigan Wearing Gamers, by nautilusl2
I just want Gimli and Legolas to get fangasms over World of Warcraft, conventions, physics, Game of Thrones, whatever. I don't care. Just make them all cute and nerdy. With 50's style glasses, knitted cardigans, discussions about fandoms. Be as creative as you want<3

(and I don't care whether you make them bro's for life or a couple. Just give me some nerdy-goodness. Please?)

+ Also feel free to include whoever you want. (Call of Duty tournament with Boromir and Faramir? Fandom clashes with Frodo and Sam? Character analysis with Merry and Pippin? Or y'know, Guitar Hero stand-off.)

Static-Scream » Fili/Legolas Fic!
AU- Fili and Legolas were betrothed before Smaug attacked.

Years later, when the Dwarves are in Mirkwood, they meet for the first time.

Well, kinda, there was some magical fuckery and a necklace in between all that.

ship_manifesto: Of Ears and Beards, A Legolas/Gimli Slash Essay
Elves and dwarves are as disparate in appearance and temperament as it is possible to be. Elves are calm and graceful, dwarves aggressive and stout. Elves delight in forests and flora, dwarves in caves and rocks. Elves are tall and beautiful, dwarves are short and... not beautiful.

So there are a myriad of reasons why Legolas and Gimli should not be friends let alone soulmates; racial prejudice, family history, likes and dislikes, temperament and appearance. And yet they become the closest of companions. A quote in Entertainment Weekly (2004):

"As the Fellowship's most agile warrior, Bloom brings a stoic bravery to his elven bowman. And his thawing relationship with John Rhys-Davies' Gimli gives Arwen and Aragorn a run for Most Touching Couple." (Courtesy of yav_14 )

The relationship is there in spite of their differences and it is a beautifully slow and genuine relationship in both the pages of the book and the scenes of the film.

Through Rohan, by Jacquez H. Valentine
At that, Legolas, too, began to laugh. "Fair words, my friend. You will love me as you do her next!"

"Nay," Gimli answered, combing out the last knots in his beard, "for my love for her is that of a warrior for a queen too high to touch. My love for you is a more earthy kind." [798]
