Prince of Elves
Summary: Draco Malfoy has always prided himself for being a Malfoy and a pureblood. That's until he finds out he isn't a pureblood. But what's better than being a pureblooded wizard? How about a pureblooded Elf? When brought back to Eryn Lasgalen, he is met up with the challenges of fulfilling his duties as a prince of Eryn Lasgalen, as well as learning to confide and trust in his new family.
Pairings: Draco/Harry & Legolas/Aragorn
Disclaimer: I don't own Harry Potter or Lord Of the Rings. If I did, then Harry would've never went out with Ginny in the first place and Aragorn would be spending forever with Legolas and not Arwen.

I know I haven't updated in a while, but it's just been pretty hectic so far. I mean its a brand new school year with new teachers (which I hate) but here I am. I just specifically wanted to post today because today's Tom Felton's BDAY and he's turning 19 today lolxz I am so in love with him. So everyone- HAPPY TOM FELTON'S BDAY lolxz
You let me in
Cause afterall it seemed like the right thing to do
I closed my eyes and let you fall
I wonder what you could possibly know about breaking down that I don't
Its been a while since I begged for anything
But now I want more
Lay me down
You don't understand me
And you never tried to anyway
I hear you say that it's not the same
I'm sorry it's something I just can't explain
So shut your mouth and hold me close
It's better off than being alone
I don't mind killing time
As long as I can see it in your eyes
- The Wreckers, Lay me Down
"Lucius beat him?" Hermione whispered.
"Everyday in the summer. One crucio for every point you beat his scores and one week in the dungeons for every game he lost to Harry." Lucien replied, eyes watering as he remember his own past.
"How come no one noticed?"
"Everyday he would wish for someone to notice but no one ever did." Lucien exclaimed.
"How do you even know Malfoy?" Ron yelled back.
"Because I am Draco Malfoy!"
"I am Draco Malfoy!"
The three Gryffindors' eyes widened in disbelief as Lucien glared Ron down. Harry couldn't believe Lucien's exclamation. It had been the elven prince's idea to hide his other identity from his best friends.
Ron was the first one to snap out of the shock,"Did you know about this, Harry?"
"I knew. I chose to forgive him for his past and look at his actions now." Harry replied, defending his boyfriend.
"You knew and you still want to be with someone like that?"
"Someone like what, Weasley? You can't even compare yourself to me, you shouldn't be talking." Lucien sneered, his old instincts kicking in. "I'm a prince, Weasley. What are you?"
"See, Harry! He hasn't changed a bit!" Rom shouted, pointing at the blond accusingly.
Lucien smirked as his response fell form his lips," I was a Malfoy before and I was still better than you. Just imagine how much better I am now that I'm a prince. My palace's servants live better than you do!"
Harry's eyes widened at his lover's words, "Draco!"
Meanwhile, Hermione slapped Ron over the head, "Ronald Weasley!"
Lucien whirled around to glare at Harry, silver eyes blazing, "I didn't come here to be made fun of."
"So far you're the only one doing all the insulting, Draco." Harry pointed out.
"Whose side are you on?" Lucien said with a snarl.
"I'm not on anybody's side! You are being a brat." Harry exclaimed. "Draco, Ron hasn't said anything bad to you at all. As far as I can see, you're the only one insulting him."
Harry could see the hurt flash in Lucien's silver orbs before they were masked again. "Why are you acting like your old self?"
"You know, Asalen was right. He told me coming here was a mistake. He knew you'd never accept me for who I am or who I was!" Lucien yelled as he backed away from Harry. "I'm trying my best to change for you. I'm trying my best to make myself into the person that everyone would like. You don't know what it feels like, Harry. I'm failing life and I'm failing everyone else."
Lucien sighed as he leaned onto the corridor wall. Neither Harry or Lucien seemed to remember that they were standing in the middle of the corridor and anyone could overhear their conversation.
"All my life, I've been trained to be the perfect son for Lucius. I know I failed in that because he constantly told me all the time. But with my family, I had another chance to be someone that made people proud. I had a chance to right all the wrongs that I commited as Draco Malfoy." Lucien paused as he looked at Hermione and Ron. "I can't blame all of this on Lucius because I didn't really try to be friendly either, but I can tell you that I really do wish that I could take it all back. I know that I don't deserve a second chance, but I'm asking for one."
"I don't know what to say, Lucien." Hermione said. "This is a lot to take in, even considering the fact that you're dating Harry."
Lucien inwardly smiled as he realized she has not addressed him as the usual 'Malfoy'.
"I have no idea how you're taking this so well, 'Mione. That's Draco-bloody-Malfoy we're talkig about." Ron said with a sour look on his face.
"Ron, I mean he almost died because Harry left him. How much harm do you think he can do to a man that he loves so much?" Hermione said, giving Ron a look.
"He could've faked it."
"Faked it so much that Harry believes him and both his parents had to come threaten Harry to force him to participate?"
Ron sighed when he realized he wouldn't be winning this arguement, "Whatever, Harry. If the ferret makes you happy then I won't kick his arse."
Harry let out a laugh as he pulled a offended Lucien into his arms. "He's a trained elven prince, Ron. You won't stand a chance when it comes to fighting."
"I am a lot bigger than him!" Ron protested.
"So are half the elves, Ron, but they can still kick your arse." Harry replied.
"Harry, when he saw my Ada, what was his reaction?" Lucien asked.
"He was awed, I guess."
"He was thinking your father was a very pretty girl until he found out the king was a male. Then he started to wonder if you had any sisters." Hermione answered, ignoring the glares that Ron was sending her way.
"Only two older brothers, Weasley." Lucien said with a laugh. "Oh and my Ada's far from being a girl. He's older than your family line."
"My family's one of the oldest pureblood lines. I bet it could even rival the Malfoy's." Ron said with a look of disbelief on his face.
"Elves are immortal, Ron." Hermione said with a shake of her head. She even lost count of how many times she's told the redhead about that fact.
"So Harry's dating an elf that will never die?" Ron asked, not really expecting an answer. He looked over to the blond elven prince that was locked in his best friend's embrace. Harry was whispering something into a pointed ear, which in turn made the other laugh. Ron thought hard about his history with Draco Malfoy. In all the years he has known the ferret, he nad never seen him smile. The boy had sneered, smirked, and even laughed mockingly at them but he never smiled. This elf always smiled at Harry and seemed to always stare at the emerald-eyed boy with open admiration.
Maybe Malfoy really changed and it all seems to be for Harry.
Further down the hall, Pansy Parkinson smiled to herself. Her fiance had finally returned.
Wait until your father hears about this, Draco. Running into the Boy-who-lived's arms instead of serving our Lord. He will take you away and we can finally get married and serve our Lord together. You're mine, Draco Lucien Malfoy, no matter where you are or who you become. You were promised to me and a Malfoy always keeps their promises, don't they?
Lucien sighed as he picked up his arm up to knock the door, only to put it back down for the fourth time. He had been standing in front of his godfather's door for more than ten minutes and still he didn't have the courage to knock. Lucien hadn't seen his godfather since he left for Middle Earth. Their quick goodbye all those months ago had left Lucien missing the man terribly. But he had not been able to write for the fear of the owl being intercepted. Not many knew that Middle Earth existed but Lucien was sure that Lucius was one of the select few who did know- considering the fact that his birth parents left him with that man.
Taking a deep breath, Lucien knocked gently on the door and waited for the response. When he heard a grumble, he took that as permission to enter. He opened the door and walked into the room. He closed the door soundlessly and waited for his godfather to look up from his potion.
"Sev?" Lucien asked, uncertain what else to say.
The black-haried wizard snapped up from his potion at the voice,"Draco?"
The elven prince looked down at his feet before replying," It's Lucien now, actually."
Severus Snape looked his godson over before sweeping the elf into his arms. "You'd always be my little dragon, no matter who your father maybe."
Lucien smiled before he wrapped his arms tightly around the other man. "I was so afraid you'd hate me for not waiting or coming to visit."
"Draco, you just met your real family and I completely understand that you were too busy to write to your godfather. I was just really glad that they took you away from Lucius." Onyx eyes met silver as the two's eyes met.
"You're my family too, Sev. No matter what changes, you'd always be a part of my family." Lucien said as they separated.
"It's not the same. You're an elven prince, Draco. You don't belong in this world anymore."
Lucien shook his head and smiled reassuringly at the potions master," I do belong here, Sev. I know I'm a prince and I know my duty to my people comes before love. But my people have forever with me, the people I love in this world don't. Sev, you're spying on Voldemort! And Harry's got to kill him. I don't know when both of you could be gone."
Snape opened his mouth to reassure Lucien of his ability to keep himself alive but was side-tracked by Lucien's admission earlier. "Harry? As in Harry-who-won't-bloody-die-Potter?"
"I love him, Sev. He doesn't care about my past. He accepts me for who I am now."
Snape let out an uncharacteristic snort as he said," I seriously doubt that he can forgive the things you did to him all those years. Getting a new face, a new name, and a new family cannot change the fact that he hated both Malfoys."
"Harry loves me and I know it." Lucien said determined. "He wouldn't tell me he loved me if he really didn't."
"He has a hero complex, Draco, remember that. Do you think that the thought of your death would weight well on his conscious?"
"You two are making me sick." Ron groaned as he flopped onto his bed.
"Harry, Harry, Harry." Seamus chided. "You're one lucky bugger. Not only is he an elven prince, he is an absolute beauty!"
"Stop perving on my boyfriend!" Harry exclaimed as he tightened his hold on Lucien's waist.
"He's not wrong though." Neville piped up. "I mean I heard his father's beautiful. Well, Hermione said it and she actually saw him."
"My Ada's a warrior! Just because he's more goodlooking than other elves doesn't mean he's not capable of anything else." Lucien yelled, taking the other wizards
comments as more of a personal insult to himself rather than to his father.
"Lucien, we all know you're capable of doing a lot more than stand there and look pretty." Harry said reassuringly. He had already guessed the real meaning behind Lucien's words.
"Ughh!" Ron groaned. "Stop being so mushy!"
Seamus and Dean chuckled to themselves as they got into their beds and closed their curtains.
"Goodnight all you guys."
Lucien waited until all the guys were in their beds before speaking," Harry, we need to talk."
The other Gryffindor shifted slightly to face Lucien," About what?"
Lucien remained silent for several moments, trying to figure out the best way to voice his concerns.
"Do you love me?" He blurted out, refusing to meet Harry's eyes.
"I...why...um...why are you asking?" Harry stuttered.
"I just need to know, Harry."
Harry swallowed as he thought about how to answer, "I don't know, Draco. Honestly, I like you. I like you a lot but I don't know if I'm in love with you."
Lucien could feel his heart breaking a little bit as he digested Harry's words. Choking back a sob, he replied," Then why did you come to save me then if you weren't in love with me?"
"Because I knew that I liked you but I wasn't sure if I was in love with you. I still don't know but I do know that being with you makes me feel so happy, Draco." Harry replied. "I felt like I could learn to love you. I knew that I could eventually fall in love with you."
"So Sev was right. You only saved me because of your hero complex." Lucien said in a whisper.
"Draco, that's not true!" Harry hissed.
"Harry, I've always wonder why you'd want someone like me. I don't have the greatest upbringing and I'm not as pure as you'd like to think. Why would you want someone that can't even have sex with you until if, and it's an if, we get married!" Lucien exclaimed, pulling himself from Harry's hold.
"Draco, I don't care about the sex. I won't push you into doing something you're not ready to do. I know the reasons. I know it's just an extra precaution you have to take in order to not end up pregnant." Harry said. "I didn't have the best upbringing either and I would like to think I turned out fine. I won't measure you by what you did before. I told you that. I'm ready to start over. What Lucius Malfoy did doesn't make you any less of a person. You're just too good to be true sometimes."
Lucien wrapped his arms around Harry's neck and pulled him in for a kiss,"Oh, Harry, I'm the one who doesn't deserve someone like you."
