Changes in the Moon - genericfanatic - The Lord of the Rings (Movies) [Gimli (Son of Glóin)/Legolas Greenleaf]
(8,600 words) Legolas hasn't faced much death in his long life, not enough to really understand that he himself might die. Gimli helps him to face his new reality, and then Legolas helps Gimli face the fact he's done so.

A Road Bright and Swift - Dorinda - The Lord of the Rings - J. R. R. Tolkien [Archive of Our Own]
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.

Cold Comfort, by Arachne
(Lord of the Rings, Legolas/Gimli) It is really all Melina's fault that I'm reading this stuff. But what's a girl to do when she's fixing links, and stumbles across L/G stories by one of her very favorite writers? This one is dark, and darkly compelling, and I held my breath until the end...

"But...," Gimli started, but realised that bringing up the only Elf wedding he had attended would not signify. The Lady Arwen had married into the world of Men, and been coronated Queen of Gondor and Arnor besides. It meant nothing to the customs of Elves. "Joining hands and promising a life together," he said. "By the customs of your people, we have been in a state of matrimony these seventeen years gone!"

"Clearly," Legolas said. His back was rigid now, and his gaze fixed at a point on the horizon. "Did you not consider us thus?"

"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.

A Candle for the Hollow City - lordnelson100 - LotR[Legolas/Gimli]
(14,000 words) About the Nauglamír and the other side of the story. Of culture clash, betrayal, and lost art.

“Do you know, Gimli, I would be happy to hear about your people’s memory of the Great Necklace, and the terrible dispute that led to the sack of Doriath. It was a tragedy of deep import."

Gimli grew serious; he sat up and looked at Elrond for a long moment with grave, dark eyes. “Forgive me, Lord Elrond, but I don’t think you would. Be happy, I mean, when you heard our account of the thing."

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."

The Days Were Made For Running (And The Nights Were Made For Love) - Eastmava - The Lord of the Rings - J. R. R. Tolkien [Archive of Our Own]
'Surely if ever there was a time to tell Gimli it was then, flush with an impossible victory.
Except he had said nothing, for there was ever more to do and never time, never time to pull Gimli aside and taste the mouth hidden beneath the fall of his moustache, to fit his slim, Eleven hands into ones coarse with callouses from the handle of an axe, to tell Gimli that every song Legolas sang, every smile and laugh and every step forward he had taken since their path darkened was bolstered only by Gimli at his side, to speak to him of Elvish courting rituals and run his fingers through Gimli’s russet hair and ask if he would allow Legolas to twist an Elvish braid in it, something to mark to all the world, even if only his Elven eyes would understand, that Gimli was tied to him.
To ask Gimli to teach him all the impossible ways their bodies might fit together.'
The night before the Battle of the Black Gate, and several days after.

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

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."
