Imagine Legolas seeing you in a dress for the first time.

{Not my gif}

You walked down the halls of the Mirkwood palace. There was a ball tonight and you had to look your best. You never enjoyed wearing dresses, you were a guard. Not a princess. But King Thranduil insisted. You walked in your silver gown, which was long sleeve. Your H/C hair cascaded down your back, and intricate braid running down it.

“Y/N?” You hear the familiar voice of Legolas.

“My Lord.” You turn around to face him, and he didn’t look too bad himself. Actually, he looked handsome. You blushed a deep red.

“Did I not tell you you can call me Legolas?” He asks as he approaches.

“You did, but I am just used to it.” You bow your head. He uses a finger to tip your chin up.

“You look absolutely stunning.”

Imagine you and Kili making fun of Bilbo for his lack of experience with ponies.

“y/n look!”, you spun around to see the little hobbit struggling to get on his pony. You smiled at the adorableness of him. Kili looked at you and put his hand to his face, trying to hold in the laugh.

The thing i love/hate about the scene where Gimli mourns at Balin’s tomb is that when you first watch LOTR you watching it from the rest of the Fellowship’s view. You feel sorry for Gimli in that sort of “wow, that really sucks” kind of way, while at the same time worrying about the evil lying so close in the darkness.

But then after watching The Hobbit trilogy, you see this scene again and now you’re watching it from Gimli’s point of view. Now you’ve spent time with Balin and Ori, like Gimli would have done, so when you see the tomb you remember Balin’s exasperated smile, and when you see the skeleton you see timid Ori knitting away at something.

You watch it knowing what Gimli is actually going through, and why he needs time to stop in the middle of such danger to mourn the loss of those he loved.
