Disclaimer: Not mine, all the characters will be returned in one piece (or in many pieces).

This story is AU because it assumes that:

1. Legolas and Gimli have spent 10 years in Fangorn and the Glittering Caves. Although we do not know exactly how long their trip has been, ten years is highly unlikely.

2. Eldarion is born a year after Aragorn and Arwen are married. This is AU because if I remember correctly, according to the Appendices he is born about 40 years after that.

All in all, for the purposes of this story, Eldarion is nine years old and has never met Legolas and Gimli before.


Warning: This story was written a long long time ago and is unbeta-ed. I am pretty sure it needs major editing, not only grammar and style, but also some plot and characterization, but I currently do not have the time for this. Still, you are welcome to give it a try. As soon as I edit it, this warning will be deleted. So, if you are reading this right now, obviously I haven't done that yet :)

The rating is for torture and violence.
