This years Barduil Secret Santa gift is for @carmentalis :>
I went with the ‘making this patchwork family with two Kings with their own realms in it work’-prompt (˘◡˘) So you’ve got Thranduil in Dale during his visit/consort-time.
For his time in Dale he left Legolas behind as his regent , who sends lots of letters to keep his adar updated (and to rant about some council members).
Sadly they can’t live together permanently since they are kings after all, but they have an arrangement where they take turns visiting each other every other season, depending on how the political circumstances are. They call it consort-time.
Their children have agreed to help them with it, so Legolas stays behind when Thranduil leaves for Dale and Sigrid does the same for her da. So all in all, though it isn’t ideal, they make it work.
(The kids travel more often between the two, though especially Sigrid cant manage as often as the others since she is the next in line to the throne and will need to take over at some point)
philip talking about how he lies, he can’t help it, he thinks he lies to get close to people?? gabe saying ‘you don’t need to do that with me. i’ll always help.’ philip asking if lukas is lying to him?? lukas saying ‘i lie to everyone else. not with you.’ this poor mistrusting boy who is so good so soft trying so hard finally meeting people who don’t want to lie to him, who can’t, who don’t want to be lied to, don’t need to be, everything so tentative but slowly building and nourishing his starved lil heart afdl;sk
Ok, ok, ok, guys. You mean to tell me that Mycroft just kinda called up Moriarty and was like, “Hey…bro, can you come visit me at my top secret high-security prison castle lock down inescapable government fuck fortress to visit my random ass sister cause she wants a killy play date? Trust me, it definitely isn’t a trap to get you, one of the most brilliant high-functioning psychopath who has an extraordinarily high kill rate, to lock you up at our perfectly designed especially for you psychopath genius prison but…ya know, come please we’re the government: we never lie.”
