a road from the garden by chrononautical
Bilbo Baggins has a brother. Worried about gossiping neighbors, his parents are very careful to hide Kili's nature. Long used to hiding his own nature, Bilbo accepts the same responsibility for his brother as he grows up. But hiding anything becomes impossible when dwarves come to the Shire.

song and light by vendaai
"Legolas was away much among the Galadhrim, and after the first night he did not sleep with the other companions, though he returned to eat and talk with them. Often he took Gimli with him when he went abroad in the land, and the others wondered at this change" (FOTR).

Bound to You by angela
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.

in contrast with the love by nsmorig
Legolas blinks up into the sunlight. "It has been some time since we were strangers," he says, as thought he is only just realising this. "Just this morning you called me your friend."

"I did, and I will not recant it unless given a good reason."

"Good," Legolas says, with a startling fierceness. "Good. And— you are my friend, too."

"Poor fool of an Elf, you've gone and done it," Gimli says, and it's light-hearted but he means it. "No getting rid of me now."

Caught by the Light by muccamukk
A lot of unexpected things happened at the Council of Elrond, but not even the Wise could have predicted this.

Indeed, it takes Gimli the entire journey to Lothlórien to truly understand its meaning.

my note: not flawless but this pairing is short on fic and one is desperate

The King's Commission by larner
The King Elessar wishes to commission a memorial to the Pheriannath who helped win the War of the Ring. But how to do one of Frodo, who is no longer in Middle Earth?

My note: amazing how some of the young frodo backstory clearly comes from a neverending million word wip I followed in high school. It can't be found anywhere but by wayback now, but apparently it lives on.

This fic is about 200k too long. If it stopped after the Shire it would be good, but it NEVER STOPS and the sculptor's interest in Frodo gets creepy and there is Easterling politics and a deranged pedohile sculptor raping all his boy apprentices and burying them in the garden, and look, I love French ancien regime court etiquette more than most people, but I DO NOT BELIEVE that Arwen would have to give birth in front of a crowd, or that Aragorn would pause while she's crowning to lecture a midwife on hygiene. And yet up until the OC leaves the Shire this is a very good fic! It falls off SUCH a cliff.

Weary Heads to Rest by icarus_chained
In the quiet after the war is won, Gimli watches Legolas sleep that strange half-sleep of the elves, and slowly and perhaps begrudgingly comes around to the realisation that he loves him.

After Helm's Deep by amedia
Imrahil looked from one to the other, puzzled, as Gandalf said testily, "You don't seem surprised, Aragorn son of Arathorn, at such goings-on in your company."

"Oh, believe me, I am surprised," Aragorn said. "Surprised that it took this long." Gandalf raised his eyebrows. Aragorn went on, "Really, Gandalf! Beginning in Lorien, one would have to have been dead not to see the signs--" he broke off suddenly. "Oh, that's right."

Sons of Thunder by Ziggy
As the Grey Company cross the mountains and come to Pelargir and beyond, Elrohir can no longer contain his inexplicable enmity towards Legolas Thranduillion, and for Legolas, his oath to follow Aragorn in spite of everything, leads him perilously close to the Sea, and bait for the Nazgûl.

my note: Very of its time but on the still-enjoyable side of early 00s melodrama. Has a good plot and a great Legolas and Gimli friendship even if tragically blind to their love. Prequel and sequel(s) not recommended unless you're into past-the-line melodrama and Ringwraith-possessed Man-vampires.

A Road Bright and Swift
Gimli, freshly-wakened, was lying with his head propped on one hand, his blanket at his waist. And he said, his voice morning-hoarse, "If my memory doesn't fail me, we'll be reaching the River Limlight soon. I'd dearly love a wash."

Legolas's heart seized and tightened. The Limlight was in the very north of the forest, and once across it, they would emerge from their easy wandering, cracking out of the chrysalis to the pain of the open air. No more Fangorn, no more careless peace, no more Gimli at dawn stretching his muscles limber and grumbling about the wear of a bootsole.

And all the future losses lined themselves up.

Words unspoken by roselightfairy
Legolas and Gimli have secretly been in a relationship since a chance meeting in Mirkwood several years before, but don’t dare to let their families or companions know about it, for fear of being forced apart. After all this time, they’ve become very good actors – but maybe not good enough to last through a journey with seven companions who are quickly catching on – or their deepening fondness for one another.
