oh 

OOOH 

thorin not forcing fili to leave kili behind (he could have. easily) bc he’s trying to correct his own mistakes. he never stood up to his father back in the day (i don’t think he had much choice tho) and that cost him his brother. OH YM FUKASGJAOIDSJG 

Of course Thorin didn’t have much of a choice, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t regret not trying or saying. He tries so hard to justify it to himself, that he was doing his duty as his father’s heir and runs through all the what if’s—what if he had been with Frerin? Would that have prevented the slaughter there or would it have only ended his life then and there? What if Frerin had been with Thorin instead? Thorin, on those particularly hard days, likes to think if Frerin had been at his side then Thorin might have saved him.

What’s worse, I think. Is that Thorin agreed with Thrain because he thought it would be safer for Frerin (who had steadfast Fundin at his side) to be away from the main body of battle and Frerin, much like Kili, had argued the right to stay. Except, Thorin would not argue in defense of Frerin, not Fili does for Kili. In fact, Thorin tells him to go and though he understands he could not have seen what was to come, he still feels as if he was the one to send Frerin to his death as opposed to Thrain. Because Frerin didn’t argue with Thorin.

So, when Fili says I belong with my brother. Thorin hears a lifetime of regret compounded in one sentence and so he doesn’t stop Fili, because Thorin understands and later, when the dragon descends on Lake-town, he feels as if he has failed again.

(All Thorin has left to him to is the Arkenstone and the piles of gold, but by the time Fili and Kili return to him safe and sound, he is too far gone.) 

dude..

Today in Middle-Earth: A long-expected party! The hundred and twenty-ninth birthday of Bilbo and Frodo’s fifty-first birthday. (September 22nd, 3019 T.A.)

Then Thursday, September the 22nd, actually dawned. The sun got up, the clouds vanished, flags were unfurled and the fun began.

Bilbo Baggins called it a party, but it was really a variety of entertainments rolled into one. Practically everybody living near was invited. A very few were overlooked by accident, but as they turned up all the same, that did not matter. Many people from other parts of the Shire were also asked; and there were even a few from outside the borders. Bilbo met the guests (and additions) at the new white gate in person. 

When every guest had been welcomed and was finally inside the gate, there were songs, dances, music, games, and, of course, food and drink. There were three official meals: lunch, tea, and dinner (or supper). But lunch and tea were marked chiefly by the fact that at those times all the guests were sitting down and eating together. At other times there were merely lots of people eating and drinking – continuously from elevenses until six-thirty, when the fireworks started.

The fireworks were by Gandalf: they were not only brought by him, but designed and made by him; and the special effects, set pieces, and flights of rockets were let off by him.

tygermama said: the AU where Gandalf gets tipsy at Beorn's and let's slip that Thrain might still be alive and when he wakes up, hungover as shit, the entire Company has already packed up and hit the road and he has to run to catch up to them.

the entire company ends up in dol guldur, gets captured. gandalf goes in to rescue them, gets captured. galadriel has to come down and save their incompetent asses. the battle never happens. thrain is miraculously healed. smaug chokes on the arkenstone and dies. why aren’t we writing these movies?

the-irish-pride said: HEADCANON: When Thorin was a dwarfling he clung to Thror constantly; his grandfather was his hero and he loved just snuggling in the king's strong arms. So when Thorin grew up and saw Thror suffering from the gold madness, nothing hurt him worse than seeing his childhood hero losing an inner battle. When he reclaimed Erebor, he hoped Thror was watching from the Halls of Waiting to know that his grandson had corrected his greedy mistakes and that Thorin didn't blame him for blindly making them.

couldn’t agree more

i think thror doted on his grandkids, back when he was still himself, and they adored him just as much. thorin especially. they’re very much alike when u think about it. and yeah i don’t think thorin ever blamed him for what he became. he knew well enough that what happened was because of the sickness, but you can’t really blame someone for falling sick now can you?! i could go on forever about their relationship tbh but to add on that last part, if thror did indeed watch, then i think he was more proud of thorin for beating the sickness (when he himself couldn’t) than of reclaiming their home

No, I would’ve doubted me too. I’m not a hero.


I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me.
