Feature Week Without Thranduil by Sivan

Rated PG
[Reviews - 0]
Table of Contents

Beta: Aranel
Rating: K/K+
Theme: bunny hutch
Elements: 12. Third or Fourth age, Legolas, King for a Week.... this really did not go/turn out to be quite the lesson Thranduil had planned for his son; Legolas did not learn precisely what his ada had intended for him to learn, and he was not the only one getting schooled (humor or squish or drama, depending on what the author imagines) (cascadewaters)
Author's Notes: 
Warning: AU, what-if? Humor/Angst, Drama, family & friendship.
Summary: Thranduil figured that, after the war, it was time for Legolas to take on some responsibilities and assume his position as king for a week until his return from Imladris. Little did Thranduil know what a mess his son could create... evil grin...
