LotR Crossover Drabble: Friend or Foe
Here is yet another in the ‘Ent Music’ series of crack!fic drabbles crossing Lord of the Rings with Last of the Mohicans and with titles taken from Adam and the Ants singles. Sometimes I wonder about myself…

Summary: Hawkeye reveals to Aragorn an incident from his past. PG, 100 words.

Friend or Foe

“I made my reputation as a frontiersman when I was very young,” Hawkeye related to Aragorn, as they traversed the Paths of the Dead with the Grey Company.

Behind them the silence of the tunnels was disturbed by giggles as the newly betrothed pair, Uncas and Éowyn, became better acquainted. Chingachgook beamed proudly, Legolas pointedly ignored the couple, and Gimli harrumphed disapprovingly.

“I shot my first bear when I was only twelve,” Hawkeye went on, “but it caused a lot of trouble for me and nearly had me banished from the Northlands. How was I to know it was Beorn?”

Now here's what I don't really understand:

Why are "Legolas pointedly ignored the couple, and Gimli harrumphed disapprovingly"?

Do they not like the noise? or is it the crossover mix? what EXACTLY, is their issue with the new-found-happiness? (Ah, maybe they're just jealous?)

Hehe, thank you for another fun reading.

I've always felt that Gimli would be uncomfortable in the presence of public displays of affection. Legolas might feel that the Paths of the Dead are not the place for such behaviour; or, perhaps, he feels aggrieved that it was not he who was chosen for the marriage of alliance (make your own mind up as to which of the couple he would have seen himself marrying).

Thank you!
