IMAGINE right before the Bagginshield wedding, the Company decides to throw each of them a bachelor party/stag night, and HILARITY ensues. The company splits up into halves, one team take Thorin, the other take Bilbo out for a night of fun. During the course of the evening Thorin is a happily emotional drunk. "dwalin im gonna marry bilbooo" "yeah yeah" and he breaks down in happy tears. Meanwhile on the other side of erebor, bilbo is partying HARD. "HE'LL BE KING UNDER ME FROM NOW ON WOOOO!!"
oh my god so avelera and i were just discussing how thorin just has two phases when he’s drunk
Phase1: Is what we saw in Safe and Distant with Thorin the goofy loud overly happy excited drunk who LOVES EVERYONE SO MUCH YOU GUYS ARE SO GREAT OH MAHAL I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH LET ME RAIN COMPLIMENTS EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!
Phase2: Is the same but now he’s sobbing gross dwarf tears everywhere because YOU GUYS, YOU GUYS ARE SO GREAT. I LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH. SO MU-UH-UGHCH.
The night before his wedding it flies right into Phase2 territory and even if dwarves don’t see crying as that big of a deal they’re all kind of embarrassed for him as it quickly declines to
"IM GETTING MARRIED TOMORROW. YOU GUYS. DWALIN. DWALIN IM. IM GETTING MARRIED. TO BILBO. BILBOS GONNA MARRY ME. BILBO LIKES ME. OH FUCK BILBO LOVES ME IM GONNA MARRY HIM U GUYS IM GONNA MARRY BILBO I M SO IM S O (incoherent sobbing) IM SO HA -AHPPY…"
Dwalin is just sighing loudly and patting him on the back like “there there u big baffoon. yes yer gettin married tomorrow. ah no there he goes again. someone get me more handkerchiefs or better yet just give me a new tablecloth he’s gonna be at this a while”
"DWALin iM SO HapPPY"
"I know buddy. I know."
meanwhile Bilbo turning into a saucy minx. yes. pretty much “HE’LL BE KING UNDER ME AAAYYYYYYY” is spot on.
