I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.                So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world Frodo, besides the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the Ring. In which case, you were also meant to have it. And that is an encouraging thought.

i'll always like the hobbit movies despite their flaws because i've always wanted something where the dwarves could be heroes instead just jokes or written as greedy. when ppl say "how can you still like those shitty films??" that's why haha.

same anon. when all’s said and done, i actually like pj’s reinterpretation better than *gasp! ! !* the Original Book By JRR Tolkien

The Riven Crown: Chapter Twelve

‘We may have won the battle, but I fear the war with winter is just beginning.’

The aftermath of war is no laughing matter. Those who died must be honoured, those who are wounded must be healed, and those who remain need food and clothing, peace and sanctuary. With Thorin’s life hanging in the balance, it is up to Bilbo and the rest of the Company to rule the rag-tag remnants of Erebor in his place.

Then there is the matter of the gold…

Can Bilbo save both king and kingdom, or is Erebor destined to fall deeper into ruin?

Or Start at the Beginning

@rutobuka2 is sick. So I drew a quick Thorin petting her and reading a letter from Kili out loud (because he’s in bag end with Bilbo) to maybe cheer her up.
