Onto my dashboard you go! Meow!!!!!
my headcanon here is that legolas is just BARELY visibly holding it together
since canon tells us that mirkwood elves like to party and are fully capable of passing out from drunk
so legolas is using EVERYTHING HE HAS to fuck with gimli and pretend he hasn’t a clue what it’s like to be affected by alcohol
while inside he’s all ‘sdkla;hgsj you can do this leggles you can do this’
‘don’t think about that time you blacked out from dorwinion wine while naked in the middle of an impromptu archery contest’
‘and all your friends drew orc penises on your face’‘and when you woke up you were halfway to dale without a clue as to how you got there’
‘And especially don’t think about that time you drank so much that the dwarves you were supposed to be watching escaped in the empty barrels of wine.’
‘Dad never let me hear the end of that one’
90% of Legolas’s motivation is to fuck with Gimli, let us be real.
…also, does this mean I can have headcanons about Legolas walking with ~poise and grace~ back to his room only to collapse down on his bed, rediscover the forgotten art of riding out the bedspins, and giggle to himself about the look on Gimli’s face right before he fell over for an embarrassing length of time? Because to be honest I don’t think you can stop me.
Interviewer: I have heard that Viggo Mortensen in The Lord of the Rings was sleeping with his horse to get to know him. So I would like to ask all of you: did any of you sleep with your horses or do anything like that to get into the roles?
