When the Witch Met the Elf

Disclaimer: I don't own Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings, no matter how obsessed I am with several of the movie-verse characters (a.k.a.- Harry, Draco, Oliver, Snape, and Legolas {What? I have eyes.}). They belong to J.K. Rowling and J.R.R. Tolkien.

Summary: When Gandalf feels that he alone will not be enough to face Saruman and his magical forces, he must ask his old friend Albus Dumbledore for help, taking with him Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas.

Rating: I'm going to say it's at PG at the moment, but the rating may change.

Author's Note: I searched for a while for a crossover between Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter where Hermione and Legolas get together and eventually, I found a couple, but I'm still searching for more. So basically, this story is for me, because the lack of Hermione / Legolas stories was driving me absolutely nuts. Read and review please, please, please.

Chapter 1

"We will stop here for the night, and I would ask you to try, my friends, to rest your weary bones. I know for a fact that come tomorrow, you will most definitely need it." Said Gandalf as he, Gimli, Aragorn, and Legolas came to a clearing in the forest.

"What happens tomorrow?" Asked the ranger as he began gathering sticks for a fire.

"Tomorrow, we visit an old friend of mine. Albus Dumbledore is the headmaster of a school for witches and wizards and we will request help from him. Though I'd felt that I would be enough, I now fear that I alone will be unable to stand against Saruman and his magical forces. Albus is a very powerful wizard and he once told me that should I ever be in need he would help as best he was able." Gandalf sat on a log from a fallen tree and Legolas and Gimli found seats on either side of him.

"Where will our journey to this wizard find us Gandalf?" The elf inquired, while already he had begun fashioning arrows out of nearby stray sticks with his knife.

"Most definitely not anywhere around here. Albus lives, not in Middle- Earth at all, but Earth itself. I met him around a hundred years ago during his years as a teacher to the students, his younger years. We leave at dawn, so try and get some rest." Aragorn found a place across from them on the other side of the fire. And, after having lain down, all became entranced by the flames and they each fell into a light sleep.
