Also know as Imagine travelling with the Company, and Legolas stalking you because he likes you. 

A/N - First of all, I’m sorry its a day late. Well two days late. I finished it last night and was too tired to check through it so I did it this morning on the way to Manchester. I appear to be obsessing over Legolas at the moment (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing). Yes, its in third person again I just couldn’t get second person view to co-operate with me! Anyway, I hope you enjoy it :) Constructive criticism welcome.

Paring - Legolas Greenleaf x Reader 

Legolas knew there was something special about the human when he first saw her. For one, she was fighting amongst dwarves, which was almost unheard of. Secondly, she was beautifully feisty especially when she was defending her friends. Thirdly, she saved his behind from one of the monstrous spiders of Mirkwood. That was the reason he often found himself volunteering to guard the prisoners, much to his father’s dismay. He even found himself giving her more food than her fellow captives.
Even then, the odd little human didn’t pay any attention to him. Sure, she smiled in thanks when he gave her food but other than that she didn’t seem to know he existed.
It was insulting really. A prince shouldn’t have to bend over backwards to be noticed by a mere mortal.

I’ve always been very much on the side of “Thranduil and Legolas had a good relationship” when it comes to their history together, especially given Galadriel’s statement of how Legolas grew up in joy (admittedly that wasn’t in the movies, tho) and, while watching the movies, I was initially wary of how things were portrayed, the closer I looked, the more I’m still firmly on the side of, “Yeah, that little elfling was totally doted on.”

(This is helped by the actors confirming that father and son love each other incredibly deeply, as well as Phillipa Boyen confirmed that, yeah, of course they reconcile between The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings.)

My view on this largely comes from the way they react to each other, even when there’s doubt and hurt and strife there.  I mean, this is not the face of an elf who was not encouraged to speak his mind:

No, I’m pretty sure that’s an elf who was brought up to ask questions, to say his thoughts, to have strong convictions.  (As well as maybe being a little spoiled, because–well, I’ll get into that.)  As well as, when you look at the way Thranduil reacts to Legolas, there is no point at which Thranduil is cruel to him or yells at him or expresses anger towards him, even when he would be justified in doing so.  There’s never any, “You sit back down, shut up, and mind your place.”

When Legolas says harsh words to his father, the reaction is instead:

So, I’m going to look at their scenes across the movies and see just what kind of dynamic they really do have.  This is entirely movie-based (as it would have to be, of course), so I will be focusing on their personalities and interactions here for this post.

The five he didn’t send:

1. The day he left.

When he left home, everything in him wanted to text his father. One last connection. One last message, one last reassurance. But he didn’t. He went to a hotel and got a room and sat on the bed, staring at his phone for a few minutes. And then, with a sigh, he turned on his side, switched off the light, and forced himself to sleep.

2. The day he got a job.

When he was accepted, he was so happy. He wanted to text him. To say both “aren’t you proud of me? Look!” and to rub in his face a little that he could do fine without him. That vengeful side of himself disgusted him, and he threw his phone across the room out of anger at himself before he could hit send.

3. His birthday.

Legolas’s birthday had always been quite a big deal back home, filled with grand presents and many well wishes. When he was organizing his little get-together with his friends to celebrate, Legolas was tempted to text his father, invite him over. But thinking of how big a deal it would be, with Thranduil’s tendencies to make everything so over the top, he didn’t. He just wanted something small, and if the price was not seeing his father, so be it.

4. The day they broke up.

When he broke up with Tauriel, the only thing he wanted was his father’s comfort. But he could not force his pride to bend and text him. He would only say ‘I told you so’. Wouldn’t he?

5. The day the world fell apart.

Just days after the breakup, everything came crashing down. Job? Gone. Apartment? Soon to be gone, now that he didn’t have a job. Friends? They had only been there for Tauriel. Everything was crumbling and burning and falling, but he could not bring himself to go to Thranduil for help. It would just be proving his father right. Proving he couldn’t take care of himself.

The one time he did:

The day he broke.

Finally he had had enough. It was too much. He couldn’t go on pretending to be okay. So he picked up his phone, opening Messages and clicking his father’s name. The last one was from months ago, something about going to find Tauriel. He typed the message with shaking hands.

I’m coming home.

And, for the first time in a very long time, he hit send.
