Hobbits really are a remarkable people. I like the way Frodo's words and voice help Legolas overcome his own misgivings as well as his anger with Gimli. It's probably a good thing that there were four hobbits on the Quest or they might have all been overcome.

Oh, this was a neat drabble. It did a really good job of explaining some difficulties with the way Legolas is presented at the Council of Elrond in the movies. But I think my favourite part was at the very beginning, where Legolas compaed the Black Speech with the chill of Mirkwood; that was done especially well.

A very nice insight into how movie!verse Legolas reacted to the Council of Elrond and why he spoke up so quickly. Cheryl’s description of the way Frodo speaks and the “ray of sunshine” it brings makes us feel Legolas’s response is convincing and heartfelt. Well done!
