Ahhh! I can't believe I did this. It's not perfect by any means, but it's only like my 3rd attempt to paint something in my life so I'm really happy with it! This is a collab between me and Clawshawt
. The drawing was a Christmas present and I wanted to try and color it in pretty. I think I did good :3
So yes, this is Kili and Legolas. Yes, I ship them. I never thought that I would and I never intended to, but I recently got a roleplay that put them together and they are so perfect it kills me. I never would have thought, but wow. And really, the best part of a love triangle is to knock out the middle, isn't it?
The plot is basically that Bilbo was also caught in Mirkwood, so they couldn't escape and so while they're there, Thranduil wants to kind of put Thorin down a peg, so he brings out Fili and Kili out of their cells and has them made into servants (hence the collar). Fili is assigned to Thranduil himself and Kili to Legolas. They're both incredibly stubborn about it, but Legolas thinks the whole thing is ridiculous and so he doesn't really treat Kili like a servant so they eventually become friends and then more.
This picture is from a scene where Legolas took Kili to a clearing in the forest because he missed the stars and they spent the whole day there waiting for the stars to come out.
