A drabble based on an imagine on imaginexhobbit
Not really a pairing, but Thorin and reader as the main characters
(It’s the first drabble I’ve written for this universe woo)
He doesn’t give a damn
Based on: this imagine
Written by me hoho
After a long and exhausting day, you wanted nothing more than to, when the dwarves ofthe company were all snoring in sleep, slip away for a bath.
Thorin had stalled the pack to stay the night in an empty cave. After eating and sharing stories by the campfire, the men began to prepare for sleep. One by one they
took their places on the hard and dirty floor of the cave. You were the last
one to stay up, but unlike you told Balin, who told you to get some rest too,
you weren’t about to put to sleep. The case was, travelling with a pack of dwarves,
well, one can only imagine the time they spend on thinking about the hygiene.
Let alone bathing and such. But while you had been riding your horses earlier
today, you had passed by a lake, hidden in the peace of surrounding trees. The
cave was not located far from it, so you didn’t even need to take your horse
when you slyly headed your steps towards the lake.
through a mellow flower field, the nice warm wind blowing on your back. You
felt like it was pushing you towards the waited change to get rid of all that
dirt covering your skin and it made you smile. Picking up your pace you jogged
to the lake. Stopping by the last tree parting you from the water, you gently
rest your hand on it and took a moment to breath. God it was lovely. All that
stress and fear, all forgotten for a short moment. The moon was beautiful that
night as it lighted up your nightly adventure. You had to hide your true
curves, such a silly thing really. But none of the dwarves, you thought to
yourself, could ever take you seriously if they knew the truth. The fact that
you were not a man, nor a son of your father, but a woman, a daughter. You’d
had to hide your true gender to be taken seriously as a member of the pack. But
now was the time to leave all that behind, because for a second, you allowed
yourself to let go.
the strings of your gear, pulled them over your head, let them fell to your
ankles, leaving you naked. Taking a glance at your surroundings, and finding it
still peaceful and safe, you head your steps, again, towards the waterline. The
water felt so fresh, so cold, on your toes. You kept walking further, up until
the surface was just about to reach above your thigh gap. You had to force
yourself take the next step, after all, the water was nothing but warm and you
remembered well the times when cold water had came in touch with your sex.
Grimacing at the familiar feeling, you tried to think why you had come here in
the first place. Closing your eyes, you kneeled down and water swallowed you
air you rose from the depth and heard a deep voice clear their throat behind
you at the beach. “I gotta say, if you and I both declare to be called men, I
have a completely wrong idea what is the difference between men and women.” You
turn around, taking a quick breath as your body responds to the revelation in
shakes all over you body, and cover you breast by crossing your arms around
you. Thorin kept his eyes fixed on you as he walked a bit closer, a few inches
further and his shoes would’ve gotten wet. “Those look like breasts to me.”
slowly. The panic your feeling is evident on your face. “Thorin I-“
explain? I’m sure.” You kneel your body so that only your head stays above the
surface, the rest of your body hidden from the look of your serious leader.
“How you’ve had a blast fooling us all? Taking us for fools-“
cut him short. “It’s not like that, Thorin, you must believe me!” You are red
from embarrassment, from head to toe, but you stand up and look at him straight
in the eye. “I had to. I needed you to take me with you. This task is as
important to me as it is to all of you, damn me for being born as a female but
I’m a great warrior! You know this, Thorin!” The water is touching your navel
as you plead your king for forgives of your fraud. You now notice how you’d
waved your hands in frustration while speaking up and quickly re-cover
budged from his position. He looks at your direction, but you think you saw his
eyes wonder your moon light naked body up and down. It was hard for you to tell
from this distance though, after all, you preferred close combat for a reason.
telling me,” Thorin said after only staring at you in the silence for, what
felt like over several minutes, “you felt like it was necessary to hide your
character in hope to avoid prejudice,” he took another pause. Keeping his eyes
still on you, he took steps to his left, the shape of coast affecting him to be
closer to you, without him still touching the water. “From men of this
particular group? Or is this something you’ve always done? Fool those around
you, trusting their lives on your hands, thinking of you as one of them?”
“Save it. I
don’t give a damn of your sex, can’t you see that this is ridiculous?! We have
not stopped for three days for a longer period, this might be your only change
to get a good night sleep, possibly in who knows how long time, and you spend
it on fooling around in the water?!” Thorin yells this to you with a tone he
had yelled at you times and times before. He is talking to you like times
before this, before he knew the real you. He is thinking of your wellbeing, and
this confuses you.
I don’t understand. Are you not mad at me?”
the cold water is really starting to make you uncomfortable and you tighten
your grip on your arms around you. Thorin notices your discomfort, and turns
his back to you. “Stop standing there and get your damned body covered! The
last thing we need is you falling ill, we need the strength of every men. Or,
women. Look, son, I’m not mad at you. I admit,” Thorin glances at you but when
he sees your naked butt only about to be covered by a cloth, he turns his head
away, now a new small hint of colour on his face.
that I might have not allowed you to join us when we started our journey, but
we’ve experienced a lot together.” You tug the oversized shirt over your heard
and hear a small chuckle live your king’s mouth. “And like you said lass,
you’ve proved yourself to be a reliable swords man, I’ll be counting on you in
future too.” He turns to face you and there’re only few meters between you and
him. You swallow the gulp in your throat and stutter, “I-I will b-be more
thoughtful from no-now on!” an evident blush still covering your features.
now get to the others! We can’t stay here for long anyways. And dry your hair
properly for gods sake!” You look at him amazed and let out a little laugh.
Thorin asks obviously a little uncomfortable with the situation as you two
began your walk back.
you smile and try to rub your hair a bit with your sleeves. “Will I have to
tell the others?” You ask when you two are almost at the camp.
stops on his tracks and gives you a look. “When you’re ready, I think you
should. Have a little more faith in us, will you?” He pats your shoulder and
walks pass you. “Good night, lass.”
his back for a second and then follow him in, settling for a sleep, a little
cold from the swim but with a smile on your face. It felt like a huge rock had
been lifted off your heart.
