The ACTUAL Love Story That Mattered: Legolas And Gimli

I just read that post about Legolas and Aragon. I felt passionately enough to create an account to set the record straight.

Some people apparently got the idea that Legolas and Aragon were in love... / Via

In middle school I was obsessed with all things Tolkein. (This might be just one reason why I have nothing better to do on a Saturday night.) I'm not as well versed as I once was, but I know that's so not accurate.

Those people are WRONG.


(Look. They can't even.) Everyone knows it was all about Legolas and Gimli.

1. For starters, they're a bit like Romeo and Juliet.

Elves and dwarves aren't natural bffs. There's a bit of contention. Long held grudges. Misunderstandings.

2. But after the initial antagonism, they became super compatible.

3. Always competitive, but that kept the romance alive


Remember that game they played? Counting your wins? Adorbs!

4. And ALWAYS sassy / Via

Haha. Good one, Legolas!

5. But their affection for one another was beyond precious


Right. "Friend"

6. And they stayed together until the end


Legolas and Gimli eventually went West together. This made Gimli the first dwarf to enter the Aman (that place Frodo goes to in RotK).

7. Now if you just want to imagine Viggo Mortensen and Orlando Bloom together, that's cool

8. But don't take that out on these two

Legolas and Gimli. Seriously.

9. So to those Legolas/Aragon fans out there, whatevs

Word, Legolas.

Also, I need a social life

Sigh, you're right Gimli.
