"The world was fair, the mountains tall, In Elder Days before the fall."
Because of both of their stubbornness, the misunderstanding between the two kings has caused the fading of Thranduil. He still has hope for the love of Thorin, yet will he survive till the final moment? War is approaching, and Thranduil could only do the final act to protect his beloved. (crappy summary done by me ugh)
The Silent Ballad is one of my all time favorite fanfic ! and this vid is inspired/based loosely on it (Since I honestly just ripped out the main villain of the story and really, now I looked at this I just realized how illogical it is o.0 ) Still, I hope you find it enjoyable.
The fanfic is literally everything I imagined for Thranduil, all the angst and suffering, the denial between the two kings and the fading , everything is just perfection. Therefore I really recommend Thorinduil shippers to read it :)
Also other works done by Anki_Shai are gorgeous and amazing as well, “Sing To Me” and “Counting Stars” are both my favorite thorinduil fics so you might wanna check them out too:)
P.S Elrond isn’t supposed to be in BoFA but it looks more dramatic lol
I twisted the ending a bit
, just to satisfy my wicked fantasy.Part 2 might just come along if time and inspiration serve :D
