Light into darkness. (Legolas x Modern!Reader) 'Life truly could be a cruel thing. It led people on, leaving them to live as if in a play and when one actor fell, their mask would be passed onto the next waiting in line. And soon the fall of them would be forgotten, what was would slowly fade away into the wind, floating away into the heavens with all those before them. But like always, there would always be that one person who would always remember, who would never forget, no matter who came along next.Light into darkness.

Nothing could cure a shattered heart from loss, an unhinged mind from the view of death, because deep down, the stench and the mark would always remain. Push it away as you may, into the farthest regions of your vast mind, but just remember, the harder you try to forget with keeping it in, the more you remember it.'
But of course, that was not the case with this situation. "Do not worry, Mellon-nin, it will heal in time.." A soft voice spoke with the wind as a hand rested on your shoulder,

25 Rules for Writing Severus Snape
By Lauren K.
Rule Number One:
Severus Snape is a Potions Master who has been known to have been a spy, as well as exhibit extensive knowledge of the Dark Arts. The fact that I need to state this as a rule makes me die a little inside.
Rule Number Two:
Severus Snape does not refer to students by their first names unless otherwise instructed, and even then it takes effort.
Rule Number Three:
Severus Snape is not interested in anyone's personal life unless it has some bearing upon his own. Any interest shown would be done so begrudgingly.
Rule Number Four:

Strong and brave and fair;
Fierce they are and proud,
Tall and dark of hair;
Filled with passion and iron of will,
A two edged sword this can be.
Never do they turn aside from their propose,
From no enemy do they flee.
Ache their hands do to craft and create,
Beloved of the Smith are they.
Burn their minds do for knowledge,
But into folly they sometimes stray.
Lovers of hills and open lands,
The Watchtower their first home.
Many other glorious kingdoms did they build,
Seven High Kings they have known.

Elves have this superhuman strength, yet they're so graceful. Tolkien created them to be angelic spirits, but I also saw Legolas as something out of the Seven Samurai. - Orlando Bloom
I smiled as I walked to the castle, in Rohan. There was a celebration tonight and I wouldn't want to miss it for anything. I grew up in Rohan, seeing as my parents were murdered, with a human foster father and mother. They were very kind but there was one thing that set us apart; they were mortal and I was not. I never aged since I stopped maturing, which was a few hundred years ago. Of course, I'll never forget them and their hospitality and I try to help their future generations as much as I can. For a while now I have been a personal guard for Lady Éowyn, seeing as I was a skilled archer and knew a thing or two about combat fighting... Anyway,
A Little Fall Of RainA/N: I recommend reading the Author's Note before undertaking this.A Little Fall Of Rain2 years ago in Drama More Like This
The battle was nearly won. The dead littered the ground, comrade and enemy alike, but the worst was over – and they were winning. Bilbo suddenly had enough time to really look around, panting with exertion, just in time to see the clouds finally burst open. He leaned back against the boulder behind him, willing to sacrifice a moment or two for well-deserved rest, as the rain lashing down upon the still struggling soldiers.
In the distance, he could see Gloin and someone who may have been Ori (brandishing a short sword now in addition to his slingshot), while closer he could easily spot Fili and Kili, their teamwork rather easily overcoming their nearest foes. And… Thorin. He was the closest of all, face set and furious, triumphant as he struck the fatal blow to the Orc before him. Bilbo knew he must be staring at him, this King who had taken him so far from his life of comfort and boredom, who had t

You pulled him aside after a feast one night, into one of the walk ways in Mirkwood.

Sign of kings and Numenor's power,
Born from Celeborn's white flower,
Nimloth fair, tall did you grow,
But in Ar-Pharazon you found a foe.
Oh, Nimloth fair, blessed Tree,
The axe did fall, thrice times three,
Nimloth, who Yavanna adored,
Fell to blow from axe and sword.
Yet praises be to Elendil tall,
Who took, before Numenor's fall,
Nimloth's child, small and fair,
In Minas Ithil it blossomed there.
Though thrice it died, to plague or war,
Thrice the king a sapling saw.
Nimloth! Nimloth! Your name is fair,
Your children live whilst kings take air.
But now that time is gone and dead.
No king to lead the country's head.
Nimloth now has no heir,
Gondor has no king to care.
In the Steward's courtyard bright,
The last White Tree, no longer white,
Waiting for the king to come,
There are no Ages of the Sun.
The line of Numenor is gone,
Of those old kings there is not one.
Nimloth bright, you wait in vain,
The kings will not come again!
Ai, Nimloth! Fairer than Tinuviel,

Ask me about the light, and I will speak. Ask me about the light, and I will tell you of one day when the light was strong. I was young, barely twenty years of age, and had returned from a journey when Elrond called me, he who had been like a father to me.

Damn this place, and damn the humans who lived here.
Being an elf in this society was hard enough as it is. Living in the slums of the city only to be abused by your human overlords really weighed down on your species. It was unfair. You hated it.
Everyone seemed to think it was perfectly reasonable to treat you worse than they treat their own pets simply because your ears were pointed. It was such a ridiculous notion you could barely wrap your head around it. But it didn’t matter what you thought, no one would listen to you.
Elves weren’t allowed to claim a title, or lands, or riches. You were probably at the top of the food chain right now just doing what you were doing – which was working as a servant in the royal castle.
You’d think that here, among the servants that you’d be treated equally – oh how wrong you were. There were barely any elven servants besides yourself, and it confused you to no end.
Despite being treated as second-class citizens

The blood on my hands
And my hand in chains
What was it for
When nothing remains?
The Light we sought, burns
So close, yet so far
We are not worthy
To touch a star
Burning flame, take me
And clean the stain
Take the cursed Jewel
And end my pain!
In fire it started
In fire it ends

Legolas walked into the moonlit forest. The air was humid and steamy from a soft rain. It smelled of rotting wood touched with a hint of wild honeysuckle. He walked stealthily pressing on the damp floor of the forest through the slanted beams of moonlight that were cast amid the grey trunks of the ancient trees. The air grew heavier as he neared the sacred place beneath the great oaks where he knew he would find his father. A place where Thranduil always seemed to drift away to find solitude. Legolas smiled down at his father’s forgotten lantern—it sat alone casting a silver glow on the tall, wispy grass. It was not a beacon of welcome but a sign that none were allowed beyond this point. In this place, the only thing allowed was Thranduil’s thoughts-but Legolas stepped forward knowing that this night he was needed.

With you was your good friend and caretaker, Cordelia Huffle. Tonight was a big ball in honor of the 3rd Anniversary of the Fellowship Of The Ring, even though they broke up 3 years ago.
The reason your presence was need was because the elf of the fellowship would not take any of the elf women his father offered to him. Not in Rivendell, nor Mirkwood or any other elf realm. They had no choice but to choose from the smallest elf realm, on that was not even on the map, Ravenmald, your kingdom.
