Hey! Ho! To the bottle I go,

To heal my heart and drown my woe.

Rain may fall and wind may blow

But there still be many miles to go.

Sweet is the sound of the pouring rain

And the stream that falls from hill to plain.

Better than rain or rippling brook

Is a mug of beer inside this took!

Well, I can add ‘this fucking mountain’ to the list of things that have tried to kill me that by all reasonable thinking should not have tried to kill me. I think this is the weirdest, unseating Creepy Sentient Murder Tree and pushing the Ghost of Monarchies Past into the number three spot, but I might be wrong.

“Their faces were as a rule good-natured rather than beautiful, broad, bright-eyed, red-cheeked, with mouths apt to laughter, and to eating and drinking. And laugh they did, and eat, and drink, often and heartily, being fond of simple jests at all times, and six meals a day (when they could get them).” - Concerning Hobbits

whatever you do, don’t imagine gandalf watching merry and pippin be mischievous and worry about them because they remind him of fili and kili.

don’t imagine him shouting “FILI! KILI!” when they get too close to the fireworks.

don’t imagine bilbo hearing him, a tear sliding down his face.

just don’t.
