"Disclaimer: Tolkien owns Ea and Arda and the Beings
thereof, but was
nice enough to share his Vision with us; may this, my humble imitation,
be considered the sincerest form of flattery it is intended to be, and
freely enjoyed by all LotR fans."
"Lessons of Life" is the name of Elwing's series of
Middle-earth stories, mostly using the Aragorn and Legolas friendship
line. The stories are presented here according to which happened first,
rather than which is written first. Her own description of the series
"Lessons of Life is to be short stories from my
strange imagination; may take place during/outside LotR time period;
mainly gap fillers, but sometimes may be AU - all intended to

The Love of One's Life
"During a rare idyllic day in Mirkwood, Legolas meditates on his surroundings."
Author's note: "I got an idea for a LotR story a few
days before Earth day; hoped to have it ready by then, but nope.
Then I thought I might be finished by Arbor Day...nope again.
Then I tried to get done by end of that month (April)...I almost made that deadline!
Anyway, as they also say: Earth Day, Every Day. So it's still timely."
In honor of Earth Day and Arbor Day
