[A Wattpad FEATURED story!] She's been King Thranduil's close friend for a long time. But when a shocking rumor about his past comes to light, it shakes her entire world. How well does she really know him? With the threat of war and an uncertain future for the Woodland Realm, her comfortable life is changing forever, and so are her feelings for her friend. A story about second chances with eventual romance. Set during the events of the Lord of the Rings. Thranduil/OC

  A/N: It was before Christmas 2014 when I first watched BBC's Emma with Romola Garai (wonderful, by the way - watch it if you haven't). A few days later I went to see The Hobbit BOTFA on its opening night. It was during a car trip from a family Christmas party when I came up with idea for this story. And while it doesn't follow the Jane Austen classic completely (Thranduil is no Mr. Knightley!), it was certainly inspired by it. I enjoyed the challenge.

I love their slight bickering and teasing. It's really sweet :D

Not a dragon but, as wise as one. Thranduil does not need fire to make his point clear. He is a wise king. I am glad to be able to read "Stars of Varda" again.

What a beautiful name. Does it hold any elvish meaning? Like Legolas that translates to greenleaf? I'm quite fond of this name. I've also read this book twice by now
Why can't you vote for a story more than once? It's a rather upsetting thing. This story deserves all the votes.

I found this story via the fantastic artwork on Tumblr. I like your writing style, and I can definitely see the Emma influence even in this first chapter. :)
