Interrupted Journeys: Steps along the way (PG)   Average 5Average 5Average 5Average 5Average 5(2)

As we look back on the journey of our life, certain moments stand out as ones that defined the course of that journey. At the time, we rarely recognize their significance, but at the end of the journey they become clear. These are the incidents that defined the lives of Thranduil Oropherion and Legolas Thranduilion throughout the Third and Fourth Ages.

This is a place for a variety of short stories that are part of the Interrupted Journeys, but are too short to stand alone.
