Welcome Fionniel!

I love LOTR Legolas for the way he comes to Aragorn's defense at the Council of Elrond, how he is saddened and bewildered by Gandalf's death in Moria and again with Boromir's passing, his mostly silent but deadly presence in defense of the fellowship, his "you look terrible" to Aragorn when he arrives at Helm's Deep, his teasing and growing friendship with Gimli capped by the beautiful "how about side by side with a friend" to him before the Black Gate. And finally being revealed in his beautiful glory as a prince during Aragorn's coronation. I will always be a Lass.

But this Lass was so taken aback by the way Legolas was treated by the filmmakers in TH. I agree with RG that they wasted a wonderful opportunity to let viewers see a father/son relationship that isn't just a military one. Oh how I'd love to hear Legolas cry "Ada! Why will you not aid [fill in the blank]!" and Thranduil reply "Ionneg, you do not understand. I would protect our realm from the Shadow and will not risk our people for the foolish actions of others". Can you just imagine?! Heart
