Ten days out from Rivendell, Frodo has finally had enough of the bickering between Legolas and Gimli. Somewhat lighthearted, especially at the end. (This is the first fanfic I ever wrote, in May 2002 -- it's short, it's rough, and I was so excited to be writing LOTR fanfiction I could hardly type straight. Remember your very first story?)

bullet Unlikely Comfort by shirebound Last Updated: 8/17/2003
Between Moria and Lórien, Legolas and Aragorn help Frodo through the shock of Gandalf's death. The healing doesn't stop there, however, as before the group reaches Lórien, bonding and healing have taken place throughout the Fellowship, in quite unexpected ways. (AU, in that the distance between Moria and Lórien is slightly greater than in canon, and, as the story begins, neither Frodo nor Sam were hurt in Moria; therefore, the mithril shirt is still a secret.)
