Story notes:

Those of you in the know will be aware I have two universes I usually write in. Legolas/Elrohir and my Non slash universe which most of the Fellowship stories are set in. This story....hopefully a sequel to both "Darkness" and "Hands" is an amalgamation of both universes together. A Elrohir meets Maewen mishmash! 

 

I think you really need to read "Hands of a King" before this to understand the Legolas/Elrohir interaction that brings us here, and I would recommend reading "Darkness" before this as well but it's probably not as essential—but it will help you understand the nuances that happen between Legolas and Maewen. 

1. Chapter 1 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 7] (3490 words)

Especially for Naledi who begged for Elrohir/Legolas during Hands of the King, and Encarion whose reviews caused me to bring that idea back out of the too hard basket and reexamine it!


2. Chapter 2 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 5] (2821 words)

3. Chapter 3 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 8] (2660 words)

4. Chapter 4 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 7] (2650 words)

This is a slower chapter—sorry about that, especially to those of you who have not read "Darkness" as this chapter is mainly for those who have, to be able to assess if Maewen has changed at all in the years since then. 

Next chapter will be a bit more interesting! 

But anyway.....

 

Encarion. . . Meet Maewen. . . 


5. Chapter 5 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 6] (2337 words)

For an understanding of the twins rather flawed relationship with Eldarion have a look at "The Acquisition of Brothers"

Aragorn explains it there.


6. Chapter 6 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 8] (2965 words)

The story of Legolas' injured shoulder and Aragorn's accidental poisoning of him can be found in Hands of the King. 


7. Chapter 7 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 5] (2133 words)

As before, the poisoning incident Aragorn and Legolas discuss is in Hands of the King.


8. Chapter 8 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 6] (2290 words)

9. Chapter 9 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 7] (2191 words)

For those of you who have read "Darkness" there is a Big reveal from Maewen in this chapter. Would love to know what you think or if anyone saw it coming. For those of you who haven't read it....well it should still be informative. 


10. Chapter 10 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 5] (2413 words)

Slightly boring chapter I'm afraid, in which Aragorn says some things that need to be said....and Legolas is difficult. 

 

Whats new! 


11. Chapter 11 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 5] (2351 words)

12. Chapter 12 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 3] (1818 words)

13. Chapter 13 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 7] (1848 words)

For those of you who haven't read "Darkness in Your Heart" I strongly suggest you hunt out that story and read chapter 2 before reading this chapter. It will fill you in on the back story of Legolas' brother which is quite important! You don't have to slog through the whole story, just chapter 2. 


14. Chapter 14 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 7] (2782 words)

Reposting because Faerie deleted it! 

Because I didn't want to leave people hanging with a dead Legolas while I took myself off to the beach for a week! 


15. Chapter 15 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 7] (2255 words)

16. Chapter 16 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 4] (1955 words)

17. Chapter 17 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 3] (2158 words)

Update hot on the heels of an update. Two chapters posted in close succession because I had got out of sync with this story while the site was down. So make sure you haven't missed a chapter!


18. Chapter 18 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 4] (2604 words)

The incident Eladrion speaks of in this chapter when he wished to be an elf is described in the story, "What you were Meant to Be"


19. Chapter 19 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 6] (2677 words)

20. Chapter 20 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 6] (2127 words)

21. Chapter 21 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 6] (1903 words)

The scene where Elladan tells Legolas of his sealonging can be found in Hands of the King


22. Chapter 22 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 6] (2029 words)

23. Interlude by cheekybeak [Reviews - 9] (1022 words)

24. Chapter 24 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 6] (1237 words)

25. Chapter 25 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 6] (1736 words)

38. Chapter 38 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 5] (2492 words)

References back to previous stories in this chapter.........."Darkness in you Heart" and "Light of a Thousand Stars"

Apologies ahead of time to those who haven't read them. It was inevitable. Elrohir and Legolas needed some getting to know you time. 


39. Chapter 39 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 6] (2137 words)

40. Chapter 40 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 5] (2598 words)

Kudos to NelyafinweFeanorion for picking this plot development!


41. Chapter 41 by cheekybeak [Reviews - 4] (1791 words)

Kind of short chapter sorry...it just worked out that this was the best place to break it.

Wow, and so this story is finally finished. Almost a year after I started it. The longest story ever!

Hope you enjoyed it. 

Maewen and Legolas get their day in the sun. They earnt it.
