Welcome Gimli, son of Gloin, to Valinor by heathlynnn Welcome Gimli, son of Gloin, to Valinor by heathlynnn
Gimli and Legolas' friendship is something of an inspiration, as is Gimli's adoration for Galadriel! I was really happy that he was reunited with her, and travelled the sea with Legolas to Valinor.

But can you imagine how strong their friendship had to be? He was the only dwarf in Valinor. He left his whole race for Legolas and Galadriel. Ok, sorry i am just a little bit more emotional here.
