Warning: Fluff, and humor, a bit of angst.

Spoiler: Total AU.
Summary: Legolas questions his adar about his nana, and it leads to an unexpected dream…
Note: Legolas's age is five, only an elfling compared to the other elves. A short vignette.
Thranduil laid his son on the bed and pulled the blankets over him. He was about to leave when he heard his son's voice calling to him.
Thranduil turned around and looked at his son. "What is it ion-nin?" he asked.
"Tell me about nana… I want to know about nana…" Legolas asked softly.
Thranduil could see the curiosity in his son's eyes, and he smiled. Legolas was always curious – sometimes too curious – wanting to know the answers to everything.
"What do you want to know about her, ion-nin?" Thranduil asked and sat on the bed.
Legolas smiled and said, "Everything… I want to know everything…"
"Like what, ion-nin?" Thranduil asked and began stroking his son's cheek.
"Like… like…" Legolas said in excitement and added, "I want to know how she looked like, what she loved. I want to know everything, ada, everything!"
"But I have already told you before," Thranduil replied softly to his son.
"But… ada!" Legolas groaned at him, and continued, "You forgot to paint her before, and I do not have any picture of her, and I want to know…"
Thranduil sighed heavily, and looked at his son; it looked as if Legolas had inherited her stubbornness. He smiled as he saw how his son's lovely eyes sparkled.
"Ada, I am waiting…" Legolas looked at him, his eyes pleading, trying to be patient.
"Are you?" Thranduil teased his son, still stroking his son's cheek, full of love for him.
Legolas poked his adar gently and clambered out from under the blankets to sit on his father's lap. Snuggling up against Thranduil, he waited to hear his father's story.
