Bilbo overhears some disapproving Hobbits about his and Thorin’s relationship and Frodo’s “questionable” upbringing during his visit to the market, then rushes back to remind himself how happy he is with the two people he loves the most in the world.
I sometimes wonder if the Shire would really take the whole Bagginshield thing that well in our so beloved Shire AU? We always portray the Shire as an all-loving accepting place but I’ve been seeing some metas that think otherwise, especially with what we saw in the last scenes of BOTFA.
I don’t know! Food for thought.
