Lovesick Blues - Roselightfairy, TAFKAB - The Lord of the Rings - J. R. R. Tolkien [Archive of Our Own]
Dwarves do not always know when they have found their one mate—so if they separate without realizing it, their bodies have a quick-acting and unpleasant way of alerting them: the amral barzûlegûr, or lovesickness. No one knows what effect such an illness might have on another race—in all the known history of dwarves, such a thing has never happened before. Until now.

When Legolas and Gimli each fall inexplicably ill after parting to return to their homes, their families must find out what’s wrong—and must reunite them before it’s too late.

Numberless the ways, and imperceptible. - Laura JV (jacquez) - The Lord of the Rings - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
"The conceptualization of emotion feeling as a phase of a neurobiological process is congruent with the idea that emotions can be sensed and registered in phenomenal consciousness and at low levels of awareness without being perceived."

Izard, Carroll E. "Emotion theory and research: Highlights, unanswered questions, and emerging issues." Annual review of psychology 60 (2009): 1-25.

Politically Sensitive
Summary: For the Gigolas 1000 Fics Challenge!

Gloin likes a good argument, Gimli likes dancing, and everybody likes feasts.

Correction: most people like feasts. Some people don't like anything.

|| Prompt: Gloin has accepted Legolas (whether it's only because he doesn't want to lose Gimli or because he actually got to know Legolas and liked him is up to you), but things are still a little strained in the mountain because of Gimli and Legolas' relationship. Someone makes the mistake of airing their disapproval publicly, and loudly. Directly in front of Gloin. Who calmly proceeds to defend the elf because Legolas is basically his son-in-law and the only ones allowed to argue with him are family.

Bonus if Gimli and Legolas hear the entire conversation and Gloin doesn't know they're there. Whether they talk to him about it or not is up to you.


(I hope you like it! Only - I forgot the 'calmly' part??? SO GLOIN IS NOW MOVIE!DUMBLEDORE 'he asked calmly' ljahsdgjlhas SORRY)

Mithril in his Beard - determamfidd - The Lord of the Rings - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
Legolas knew Gimli’s body as well as his own, and he knew when it was subtly different. An immortal Elf never changes, and the workings of time upon his lover were a marvel to him. It fascinated him. It enchanted him. How could one person be made of such endless, enthralling variety?

Now, he only had to convince Gimli of such.

(Easier to convince the moon.)

Light To The Misled and Lonely Traveler - rthstewart - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
From: The Time and Space Traveler’s Guide, Entry for Coriakin’s Island, V 2.0:
Should your journey to or from Aslan’s Country (excellent food and top notch accommodation – see entry for Aslan’s Country above) or the Sweet Sea (delicious but be sure to brush your teeth after partaking to prevent decay!) take you through the Eastern Sea, you will find there are few places in the archipelagos worth the bother of leaving the time stream. No establishments offer notable refreshment, sights, or entertainment. Some of the Islands are very dangerous whilst offering no commensurate excitement and are best avoided entirely. (See entries for Dark Island, Lone Islands, Deathwater below). As for Coriakin’s Island, do not be lulled by the prospect of the pleasant greenery, homely house, and fine, sandy and pristine beaches. The magician who lives there is a cantankerous coot with a habit of giving uninvited guests extra appendages or turning them into a squid. AVOID.
