I wondered, too, what happened after Helm's Deep and the ride back to Edoras. Again, I think you filled in the gap nicely with this story. Well done.

Ack! More tears. This story actually reminded me a bit of the gift of the magi… though only one side. Galadriel's hair was Gimli's most precious gift and he gave it to Legolas, surely signifying that he was indeed an elf friend. I loved the way he acted as if it didn't matter to him at all. You know, I have wondered about the burial of the bodies at the Deep… because the customs of men did not seem to be burning any but orcs and I think a mass grave would have been the only answer.
