tranduil shuts everyone out in order to save the few of his alliance left
I believe that following the destruction of Beleriand and the War of Wrath, Oropher (and the rest of the Sindar Elves unwilling to leave Middle-earth) traveled to Greenwood the Great and merged with the Silvan Elves. It’s part of my headcanon that in order to merge these Elves, Oropher wed his son to a Silvan Elf. Not سے طرف کی an arranged marriage. Just as an act of good faith. And I like to think that when the Sindar Elves renounced their way of life to embrace the Silvan Elves’ rustic way of living, they embraced the way they celebrated most, their festivities.
In a way, I envision Thranduil and his wife being like Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. She may have asked him to dance and he would have declined. After watching her dance and laugh throughout the night, she grew to be an infectious thought in Thranduil’s mind and over a short period of time, he became madly in love with her. But his pride stood in the way of his feelings. (I won’t go into detail, but آپ get the idea).
Eventually, he’d ask to marry her and she’d say yes, having almost دیا up hope that he ever would. But he overcame his stubbornness for her and she could see the change in her “vigorous spring”. :>
Concerning Legolas, things turn tragic. It wouldn’t be long before she became pregnant and there was much joy in their lives, but it would soon be ripped from them. The War of the Last Alliance would claim whatever family she had, as well as the current Elvenking. Thranduil would return (with less than third of the army he had marched with) to find that she had faded from grief, and quite possibly under the assumption that Thranduil too had perished. But their son had survived. A “green leaf” sprouting through the tough soil in such a devastating time. As he wept, cradling Legolas in his arms, he would shut out the rest of the world, protecting his remaining people from the grief and loss that had claimed his wife and father.
His wife would be buried at the roots of the tallest درخت in the Greenwood and as Thranduil took the throne, requested that a crown be fashioned out of the tree’s branches she lay beneath.
legolas brings joy to their lives.... but the joy was short lived
