The story continues. As I recall, at the time of the Battle of Five Armies there was a ten year old fatherless Dunedain child living in Imladris with his mother. That child will eventually grow up to capture Gollum. But it will take a few decades of mortal life to get to that point!Thranduil and his people have begun yet another season of watching and waiting. One thing that you have done here is create a vibrant picture of why the hunt for Gollum might have become PERSONAL for these folks. He eluded them once. Then decades later, when the previously mentioned, now grown Dunedain lad deposits him in their dungeon, he does it again!
I can very much see what may have led Legolas to take it upon himself to go to Imladris to report what he must have seen as his own repeat failure. And, nice
use of one of the better movie lines, ...every road, every river, nothing moves but that I know it.... To me that stands for Thranduil's struggle to guard his land.

Oooh, finally another chapter. So this time it is Gollum who is playing havoc in Mirkwood and getting on the Elvenking's nerves. Let's hope Aragorn gets here soon. i am really excited to see how you write his character. Cheerio
