dawlin

Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away ere break of day,
To seek the pale enchanted gold.

The dwarves of yore made mighty spells,
While hammers fell like ringing bells
In places deep, where dark things sleep,
In hallow halls beneath the fells.

For ancient king and elvish lord
There many a gleaming hoard
They shaped and wrought, and light they caught
To hide in gems on hilt of sword.

On silver necklaces they strung
The flowering stars, on crowns they hung
The dragon-fire, in twisted wire
They meshed the light of moon and sun.

Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away ere break of day,
To claim our long-forgotten gold.

Goblets they carved there for themselves
And harps of gold, where no man delves
There lay they long, and many a song
Was sung unheard by men or elves

The pines were roaring on the height,
The winds were moaning in the night.
The fire was red, it flaming spread;
The trees like torches blazed with light.

The bells were ringing in the dale
And men looked up with faces pale;
Then dragon’s ire more fierce than fire
Laid low their towers and houses frail.

The mountains smoked beneath the moon;
The dwarves, they heard the tramp of doom.
They fled their hall to dying fall
Beneath his feet, beneath the moon.

Far over the misty mountains grim
To dungeons deep and caverns dim
We must away ere break of day,
To win our harps and gold from him!

While I know what a ship is, would someone kindly explain to me why the rest if the tumblr-verse (patent pending) ship Fili and Kili? They’re brother for Christ sake! I mean I don’t many trying to put Oin and Gloin or Balin and Dawlin! This one thoroughly bothers me…though to be fair Thorin/Bilbo tweaks me a bit. And NOT in a good way. Can’t we people ever just go see a movie to fall into the story telling and the adventure and not try to make a bunch of men, mostly brothers, cousins and uncles, have sex with one another?! What is wrong with you?

Oh and ¡Spoiler Alert! /facepalms; Both Kili and Fili die at the end.
