Beauty of the Ball
Title: Beauty of the Ball
Summary: No one wants to fly solo to the biggest celebration of the year, and yet you find yourself in that exact predicament. That is until a very kind king decides to change that.
The battle was won, Erebor reclaimed, and thanks to the amazing healing power of the elves, everyone got out with their lives. Sure, Thorin had to use a cane to walk and Fili had some back problems now, but they were alive, and that was all that mattered.
It is what brought the company to this day. It was about a week before the big celebration. They were going to call it “Thorin’s Day”, to honor the bravery of their new king as he faced the dragon and reclaimed his kingdom. Many argued, and by many you mean Nori and you, jokingly, that it should be named “The Company’s Day” but it didn’t have the same ring to it.
Planning and preparations were in full swing, the food being planned, wine and ale purchased, the now golden floored hall being decorated, it was a site to see. Now that the other dwarves had returned, life was bustling once again in Erebor, it was great to see the carefree smiles that no longer held worries of dragons and death, but instead were optimistic of the future.
