Disclaimer: Tolkien conceived this world – and made it wide enough to play in.

Aragorn joined Legolas after the elf’s conference with Lord Celeborn. Galadriel sat with her attendants; Aragorn noticed her wave one back as he joined them, it made the man curious. Noticeably slender, attired as an archer, hair in warrior’s braids, but... small hands... Such things were delicate...

“Is he... she...” Aragorn ventured.

“Tasarion?” Legolas shrugged, “The Rohirrim have shield-maidens.”

“Tasarion... Willow... apt, but an unusual name...”

His chosen name – those who exchange skirts for weapons take a tree’s name... becoming male, yet not.”

“He will fight?”

Legolas nodded, “He guards the Lady - should orcs attack Lorien... yes, he’ll fight.”
