Fic: ‘Tra-la-la lally.’  
Title: Tra-la-la lally.
Fandom: Lord of the Rings (movies).
Rating: (G)
Time Period: Before events in The Hobbit.
Summary: He doesn’t stray from the path.

Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q.).

Although The Hobbit is seen through the eyes of Bilbo and the songs of the Rivendell Elves as he enters the valley with Gandalf and the Dwarves might be translated as ‘Tra-la-la lally’ by him at that time, a thought occurred.

What if the ‘tra-la-la lally’ was from mischievous Elven children?

Tra-la-la lally

The lone rider follows the winding path; he can hear the rush of the waterfalls and he smiles at the sound of voices lifted in joy. He even hears the soft giggle underlying the words; the quiet around them carries the sound.

Lights, bobbing back and forth, appear beside the path, hanging from the trees. A smile quirks his lips but the brim of his hat hides it. He chuckles under his breath as, in the fallen evening, he can see small figures hanging from the trees, holding elven lamps, hidden from mortal view by Lórien cloaks.

The lights disappear and he can see the evening turn into night. Stars appear above and he finally comes to the end of his road.

He smiles as Elrond descends the steps to greet him; he can still hear their laughter.

I wasn't very certain it'd work at first!

Thanks for giving it a chance!
