After the War of the Last Alliance by MINASANNOINU After the War of the Last Alliance by MINASANNOINU
I feel so bad after drawing this picture although I wanted to do it for a long time... ;_;

The scene is when Thranduil came back from the War of the Last Alliance, where he lost his beloved father Oropher. Legolas apparently didn't know anything about his grandfather's death, so he kept asking Thranduil why he didn't come back with grandpa. Thranduil couldn't say a word but hugged his son tightly and burst into tears. This scared little Legolas so much because he didn't know what has happened to his adar or grandpa, he has never seen a drop of tears from his father before...

I think this kind of explains why Thranduil refused to help the dwarfs in the Hobbit. He has lost his father in the war, and he cannot let Legolas suffer from the same pain that tortures him forever.

OMG what have I done;_; Now I made myself cry...

'But there was in Thranduil's heart a still deeper shadow. He had seen the horror of Mordor and could not forget it. If ever he looked south its memory dimmed the light of the Sun......'
