Story Type: Vignette : Length: N/A
Rating: PG -- Reason for Rating: adult themes
Summary: In Lothlorien, Gimli hears Haldir and Legolas converse about many things: trees, Dwarves, secrets kept and told. How can the dead be best honored? AU in some respects, primarily bookverse but influenced by the film.

I usually enjpy stories exploring how Legolas and Gimli think of one another and this was no exception. I liked Legolas's conversation with Haldir and the little details in it. And I liked Gimli's overhearing it and his final thoughts. Good story.

How odd to think of Gimli and Haldir having any sort of connection or likeness. But you manage it here, and tell us a little more about both of us. There was also some nice musing on being separated from ones you love in dangerous times. Well done, Cel.
