    Summary

    ”It was not the fault of the Dwarves that the friendship waned,” said Gimli.

    “I have not heard that it was the fault of the Elves,” said Legolas.

    “I have heard both,” said Gandalf; “and I will not give judgement now. But I beg of you two, Legolas and Gimli, at least to be friends, and to help me. I need you both.”

    (The Fellowship of the Ring, “A Journey in the Dark”)

    Summary

    “That the Elves ever came to know so much (though only at a time when the vigour of both their races was declining) is thought to be due to the strange and unique friendship which arose between Gimli and Legolas. Indeed most of the references to Dwarvish history in Elvish records are marked with 'so said Legolas'.” -J.R.R. Tolkien

    After the War of the Ring, Gimli shows Legolas the tombs in Erebor where dwarven kings are buried.

    Summary

    “In those days the Companions of the Ring dwelt together in a fair house with Gandalf, and they went to and fro as they wished.” – J. R. R. Tolkien, Return of the King

    During the War of the Ring, Legolas and Gimli learned that they would gladly die defending one another. But now that peace has come at last, they find that there is so much still to learn. In the summer that the Fellowship spends in Minas Tirith, they at last have time to talk as they never did before. Before long, they find themselves staying up late talking, revealing secrets and dreams – so late that it is the most natural thing in the world to bed down together afterwards.

    But the summer is also hot, and the heat of the summer nights may lead to more revealing than either of them could have expected.

    Summary

    Gimli’s friendship with Legolas is accepted if disliked; his reverence for Galadriel understood if mistrusted . . . but there is only so much liberty a lord of a new dwarven colony may be allowed. In a world unforgiving of the depth of their love, the only thing Gimli can think to do is deny it, even if that means breaking both of their hearts.

    Or so he thinks. But when he sees the depth of his friend’s heartbreak, he knows some other solution must be found instead.
