Once the great war against Sauron had ended, the Fellowship of the Ring found themselves going their separate ways. Legolas, the elven prince, decided to journey back to his homeland in the Greenwood and assist in rebuilding the forest that had been damaged during the war. However, his heart was heavy, knowing he would eventually have to say goodbye to his dearest friend, Gimli, the dwarf.
As the years passed, Legolas and Gimli spent their time travelling across Middle Earth, fighting orcs and other dangers that threatened the land. But eventually, Legolas knew that he could no longer ignore the call of the sea. It was time for him to return to the Undying Lands, where his people lived and where he could finally find peace.
With Gimli by his side, Legolas set about building a boat. The dwarf, who had never seen the sea before, was hesitant at first, but soon grew excited about the prospect of seeing new lands and experiencing new adventures. Together, they worked tirelessly on the boat, until it was finally complete.
As they set sail, Legolas and Gimli felt the wind in their hair and the salt spray on their faces. They were filled with excitement and anticipation as they sailed towards Valinor, the land of the Undying, where they would find eternal peace and happiness.
Years passed, and news of the Fellowship of the Ring grew scarce. It was rumoured that Aragorn had died and that the hobbits Pippin and Merry had also passed away. Legolas and Gimli mourned their friends deeply but took comfort in the knowledge that they had lived long and happy lives.
Eventually, Legolas and Gimli arrived in Valinor, where their kin greeted them with open arms. They lived out the rest of their days in peace, surrounded by the beauty of the Undying Lands. But even as they found happiness in their new home, they could not help but remember the fellowship that had once been so dear to them.
It was a bittersweet thought, knowing that they would never see their friends again. But Legolas and Gimli took solace in sharing a great adventure together, one that would always hold a special place in their hearts. And so, as the years passed, the memory of the Fellowship of the Ring faded from Middle Earth, but it lived on in the hearts of those who had been a part of it.
