A couple of shots behind in my game of Pass the Peredhil with curiouswombat , but I fully intend to catch up!  This would come after the events recounted in her He Was A Wood Elf, Once...

Beware of Imitations

“He looked nothing like a Wood-elf,” Legolas said firmly when, some time later, she had the opportunity to retell the tale in question.  “I remember seeing those scars – crude, meaningless dots and lines!  Our tattoos are works of art and craft, and every one has meaning...”

I've only ever seen him stripped down to his tunic, she realised, when we were discussing Mirkwood silk-weaving!   The temptation was irresistible:

“Prove it.”

He raised a wicked eyebrow.  “You would have me appear before you without a stitch on, nethig, purely to demonstrate the point?”

She grinned; she could be wicked too.



(The reference to Legolas' spider-silk tunic, and his using the term of brotherly endearment nethig for this OC, are both references to curiouswombat 's very entertaining BTVS/LoTR crossover fic The Return of the Key...)
