Requested by@amralimedeanoI apologize beforehand since I’m pretty sure this was not what you wanted. I honest to god wasn’t expecting a modern day request lol but I tried my best. Also, I’m trying something new so the GIFs can be found throughout the story. Tell me if you like it or not because it might be a little much :)
You narrow your eyes at the door as you hear a knock. You were not expecting anyone tonight. You put your book and move to open the door. What you see makes your heart stop for a bit.
There in front of you are thirteen dwarves. Thirteen dwarves and a freaking hobbit.
Of course you knew what dwarves and hobbits were. You read the books and saw all of the movies, but you did not expect to see them here in front of you and you did not expect them to be of normal height.
“Good evening lass. I was wondering if you could tell us where we are?” Balin asks.
Oh how you loved the dwarf. You very bitter when you found out he died. VERY bitter.
“Earth. You’re not in middle earth, but regular earth. Its a more technologically advanced middle earth. Here why don’t you come inside?” you ask and he nods. You make way for the 13 dwarves as they come stomping into your house.
It took you a few hours, but you fully explained where they were.
“Excuse me, miss y/n. What’s this?” you hear Ori ask.
You turn to find him holding your computer upside down. He looks like he’s about to drop it so you quickly make your way over to him. “That my dear scribe is a computer. A very expensive one,” you say as the other dwarves settle down in front of your fire place.
“What is a computer?” he asks and you sigh, trying to think of an explanation for it but you can’t. “Well, it’s almost like a book but easier I suppose. Kili don’t touch that!” you exclaim, putting the laptop down and moving over to Kili who had some how turned on the stove and was now trying to stick his finger in it. You slap it away.
“What is it miss y/n?” Kili asks.
“A stove. It’s like a campfire, but more compact,” you say.
“Fili, get your head out of there,” you scold yet again as you see the blonde dwarf sticking his head in your microwave.
“Ms. y/n. What is this?” Dori asks and you sigh turning to look at what he’s holding. It’s your phone.
“It’s a cell phone. You can send messages and pictures to other people far away. It’s kind of like sending a raven but you don’t talk into a bird,” you explain.
You look into the fridge to look for something to make for dinner, but whatever was in there was not enough for 15 people. You sigh when you realize you need to go shopping.
“Alright. I’m going out for a bit. You lot stay here and don’t touch anything,” you announce, grabbing your keys.
“Can we come with?” Bofur asks excitedly. “What?” you ask. “Can we come with you?” Fili responds. You look around and sigh. “Alright, but only four of you can come. That’s the most I can carry,” you say, “also. Follow me upstairs. We need to change your clothing. You are not going out looking like that.”
With that, Bofur, Fili, Kili and Ori follow you upstairs. You had some extra clothes your brothers left behind and you were pretty sure they were all the same size as the dwarves.
You throw them all jeans and t-shirts and leave them to get changed. You go to your bedroom to grab your wallet and go downstairs to wait for the dwarves.
Ori comes down wearing an ugly christmas sweater and you laugh. He matches completely. Kili comes down with a Harry Potter hoodie that you did not remember giving him.
“I really liked this instead,” he says as you open your mouth. You roll your eyes as Fili comes down in a tight red dress shirt and Bofur with a white dress shirt. “Ready girls,” you ask and they nod.
“Do. Not. Touch. Anything,” you growl out and the five of you leave. You were pretty sure they were going to burn the house down.
You end up taking an hour to get your shopping done. Of course you had the most curious dwarves with you so that was the main problem. Plus there were many girls surrounding you. You basically had to beat them off with a stick.
You pull into your drive way and everything seems relatively okay, but as soon as you walk inside that changes. The television is knocked to the ground with an ax in it, the ceiling fan was missing a part, and the microwave was on the ground.
You thought that the knuckeheaded dwarves were with you. Apparently, you were wrong.
“Can someone please explain to me what happened?” you ask, handing the groceries over to Kili and Fili.
“Well this thing started talking and I thought it was someone trying to kill us,” Dwalin says, pointing to the television.
That would explain the ax then. One of them probably sat on the remote.
“And the fan?” you ask. This time it’s Thorin who answers you.
“Well, I hit some type of switch and it start rotating and I thought it was coming toward me so I shot it with an arrow,” he explains, rubbing the back of his neck.
You let out a deep sigh.
“And the microwave?” you ask pointing to the broken appliance. You look at the dwarves and they all point to Bilbo. You look at him in shock. You did not expect him to break anything. If anything he and Balin seemed like the most responsible one.
“Ah yes. It seems like I pressed a button and then it startled me when it started beeping and I seemed to have hit it off the counter?” he asks.
You close your eyes breathing in deeply. They were going to be the death of you. Granted, they seemed hella cute while doing so.
The dwarves were definitely my favorite part of the whole trilogy. Whenever focus shifted to BIlbo or Gandalf, I would start feeling homesick for the company. The way that Fran, Phillipa and Peter managed to give each dwarf a distinctive personality and create interactions among them to make them feel like relatable characters was just one of the many reasons why I believe this was a good adaptation. Better still, the 13 actors quite obviously developed a bond on and offscreen similar to the one formed between the 9 cast members of the fellowship in the making of the Lord of The Rings trilogy.
Voice actors terrify me man, they have too much power.
Like for example this guy is Sawamura Eijun
He constantly shouts and has exactly 0.01% chill, but also shares the voice of this guy
Who is fairly quiet until provoked, and is also the voice of
THIS GUY, who we all know as freckled jesus. All hail the entire half of him that’s still left in some titan’s spitball somewhere. Don’t even get me started on other voice actors. Oh, Miyuki from Daiya no Ace? Sure he’s cute look at him!
Sassy motherfucker with a penchant of picking on Eijun. But wait! HE ALSO VOICES THIS ASSHOLE
AND THIS HOT HOT TATER TOT (readthemangapls)
Then there’s this guy’s voice actor okay look at him. Precious pink mophead awhh.
Who is going to voice this guy (hellyeahalrighthelfuckinalright)
And we all know his voice better as THIS FUCKIN’ GUY
