This message of hope goes out to all of you. Because, sometimes, even what seems impossible CAN come true, if you only BELIEVE....

Chapter 24 The Song That Never Ends )
prance_legolas: (Default)
Sorry for the delay, folks. Mother Nature and her ice storm conspired with the power company to help bring this chapter to you in real time. For those who didn't make the connection, this chapter actually took place on the evening of December 17th, 2002.

Thought you might like to see Faek Me wearing the Santa hat that the old man at the tree farm plopped upon our elf's head.

Tissue alert. Maybe a whole box. You knew it was coming--Hell, it even made ME cry....

Chapter 20 Are we there yet? )
prance_legolas: (Santa's Little Helper)
Sorry for the big time jump here, with that last chapter happening in late August, and now this chapter happening the last week of November. The Friday after Thanksgiving, to be exact. The official start of Christmas season.

This is a “to be continued” chapter. I will tell you up front, so you aren’t worried about me not getting it finished before next week. "Next week?" you ask. "What's so special about next week?"

Ah, next week. I don’t wanna talk about it.

Chapter 19 Going Bye Bye )
prance_legolas: (Santa's Little Helper)
For those who asked, I don't have a picture of my warrior braids loaded on my computer that show them very clearly! I'll see if I can get Yes Dear to take a newer one this week...I'm getting it trimmed--not cut, TRIMMED--on Wednesday, and I maybe I can get one then.


This chapter's full of hot tubs and water and paint and rain and other things the title implies. Special surprise includes my best rendition of exactly what things looked like from the safety of my carport screen door.

Chapter 18 My Water Broke )
prance_legolas: (Santa's Little Helper)
There are parts of this story I would rather forget than remember. But like all good stories, there must be periods of pain to go with the comfort, right?

Shari Lewis and her puppet Lamb Chops make an appearance here as well. Thank you PBS!

Chapter 17 Earning Warrior Braids )
prance_legolas: (Wow)
*sighs* There are just no words to go with this picture, y'know???

*sighs again*

A big thanks to my favorite TV network, whom most of you'll recognize. I have really enjoyed programs like these, and even learned a little, over many years since I was a child. This chapter is a testimony to the fact that you can NEVER be too old to learn something new.



Chapter 15 Spaellin Leassunz )
prance_legolas: (Wow)
Here we have one of the very first times Legolas actually spent some time 'dressing' his carboard persona instead of merely using him as a hat rack. This is "Faek Me" impersonating "Thaet Boey whoe theenkz he iz me."

Yes, it's educational, living with an elf. Fashionable too.



Chapter 14 Right There I Had Him, Right There I Lost Him )

Well, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Legolas becomes part of the family...starting NOW.

Chapter 12 Back to Greenwood )
prance_legolas: (Balrog has come)
Nothing quite like a Prance in a tub, is there????

I see you all have your yellow rubber duckies, ready to hop in. You can leave your towels hanging over the deck railing....

Tonight's picture was drawn by Treehugger, who originally inspired Legolas and I to start recording our adventures. You'll read about that in a chapter soon to come. She has some of the most wonderful elfling!Legolas stories, and her original character Elu Heneb the Orc is absolutely outstanding. You can visit her bio page and find a list of her stories at this link:

Chapter 11 Uncovered Subjects )
prance_legolas: (Elf Hats)
This is real life, non-fiction. I really mean it. No one owns the Prance; he’s a free spirit. Way back when I was working on this chapter, Prance Free Spirit had the lust for Halloween candy so bad that he couldn’t sit still. Lil' Pip had explained all about how you dress up in a costume and go up to ring the doorbell at the houses of complete strangers (just to her...we went too, and we know everybody) and they give you CANDY if you say "Trick orTreat". She knew what she wanted to be right off the bat...bet you can't guess???

A witch? A princess? A cheerleader? A 'poodle-skirt girl'? Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz? A cat? A dog? Anything a normal 9-year-old would pick?

Not my child. She wanted to be Nancy Drew.

I took him out into the neighborhood for Halloween, but when I tried to take his picture, he got all shy and embarrassed and hid from the camera. When we got home, I found he had put his “costume” on the cardboard replica of himself that I got from Waldenbooks. I DID get a picture of that. It’s not quite the same as the real thing was, but you get the idea.

So if you've not met him before, here is the poor tortured cardboard replica of Legolas that lives at my house in the blue bedroom to this day, dubbed by the Prance himself as "Faek Me".

Let’s see, we left off with Little Pip wanting to know what was going on....


Chapter 10 He Forgot His Towel )
prance_legolas: (Balrog has come)
*insert heavy sarcasm* I'm glad y'all are finding this part of the story entertaining. It really was SOOOOOOOO much fun rescusitating an elf while my husband watched. *end sarcasm*

Raise your hand if you wish you could have switched places with me.

Uh huh. I thought so.

On with the story....

Chapter 9 So Busted )
prance_legolas: (Balrog has come)
Nothing quite like a Tea party with the Prance. This is how I'd come home from work and find my own toys. I used to refer to them as Lord of the Rings dolls, but I was promptly and thoroughly corrected in that assumption.

These things are not dolls. They're "Akshun Feegurz".

May I present to you, "Aksuhn Feegur Legolas" on the red carpet, in no less than three outfits and two modes of transportation, not counting walking of course.

He has a different purse in each one too, but the same bow. For some odd reason, I find that incredibly funny....

Hi, everyone! Good to see you here again for more adventures with the Prance!

Chapter 7 Co-Conspirator )
prance_legolas: (Default)
This chapter is such a happy chapter I hereby declare it "The Smiley Face Chapter". Your really fun job is to tell a friend about Legolas's story, and then put a smiley face here in the comments and the lj name of who you shared with. If you share with more than one person, feel free to put more than one name. Then when they get to chapter 6, they can comment to YOU and share a smiley with you too! Sort of a smileymeme!! WooooHooo! (c Celeborn!)

Chapter 6 Afternoon Tea with Barbie and Teresa )
prance_legolas: (Elf Hats)
It's so good to see so many of you here! I'm really glad you're enjoying the story so far. As you can tell from the first few chapters, you really ought to consider putting down all food and drink before reading Lego's Bio. Every time.

*cuffs [livejournal.com profile] tularia to the chair, just because.... ;^)*

Now, where were we? Oh, that's right -- A Nazgul has come....
