loyalty honour and a willing heart

Boromir would have acknowledged that Thorin Oakenshield is a King approximately 10 seconds after meeting him.

He would’ve immediately volunteered to come along to the Quest, because the military situation in Gondor is manageable right now, and besides they really do not need the possibility of a dragon allying himself with Mordor, seriously, orcs are bad enough.

Boromir then proceeds to appoint himself as the official protector of everyone around him (because that’s what he does) and after a while he starts to challenge the people who sound like they’re being less than respectful towards Thorin, because fuck that. From what he’s seen and heard, this guy has been fighting tooth and nail for his people for who knows how long, so hold your tongues you’re talking to a King.

And the Company is just staring at Boromir, because there’s no way they’ve somehow managed to find a human Dwalin. Not possible. But there he is, asking those Men if they’d like to have Gondor declare war on them, because that can be arranged, and oh Mahal, definitely a human Dwalin. How???

Thorin isn’t exactly sure what’s happening or why, but this Lord of Men is defending dwarven honour and there’s no way he’s ever forgetting that. Boromir doesn’t know it yet, but he’s just accidentally secured an alliance between Gondor and Erebor. 

Dwalin is nearly beside himself with approval.

I would take each and every one of these Dwarves over an army from the Iron Hills. For when I called upon them, they answered. Loyalty. Honour. A willing heart. I can ask no more than that.

My second entry for the RBB is a Rock Star AU. Where Thorin is a sort of fallen from grace Rock God whose band decides to get back together for one last tour. And Bilbo is his new PR manager who has to deal with all that’s thrown at him. 

I had two lovely authors who brought this idea to life, and you should read their amazing fics.

Blaze of Glory by loyalty-honour-a-willing-heart

and

Durin’s Bane by bilboo

Finally done this too, commission for lovely loyalty-honour-a-willing-heart, a scene from her fanfiction Golden Emerald. It’s a no-Smaug AU, Thorin has gold sickness, hence the dark clothes. He’s still a dork though.

Top 5 Thorin Oakenshield quotes?

This is a tough one. I’m going to go with quotes from the film, apart from one. The last quote, which I ABSOLUTELY LOVE, is better from the book. 

1) He looks more like a grocer than a burglar. 

2) Loyalty, honour, a willing heart. I can ask no more than that. (Got to have that one in!)

3) It’s a ruse. (The way he says ruse in this scene sends shivers through me. So damn hot!!!)

4) You talk to me as if I were some lowly Dwarf lord. As if I were still Thorin….Oakenshield. (The way his voice breaks just kills me in this bit) 

5) If more people valued food and song and cheer above hoarded gold, the world would be a merrier place. (The book quote is much better than the film version. I love this quote because I think it really shows our world and life today; people value money and material possessions above being happy.)

(Loyalty, honour, a willing heart)

Frerin patted Thorin’s shoulder, grin still wide, and said in Khuzdul, “I like the Hobbit. He’s adorable.”

    “That’s the thing,” replied Thorin. “We need a proper burglar, not an adorable kitten. This quest cannot fail.”

    “How do you know he’s not a proper burglar if you’ve never seen him in action?” argued Frerin. Thorin scoffed and earned some strange looks from Glóin and Dori.

    “It’s more than clear that he has never done a day’s work,” said Thorin. “And then there was that talk about conkers…

    Frerin laughed and interrupted in Westron, “I think it’s a good thing he knows how to handle nuts. Might come in handy at some point.”

(this is more aesthetic than anything else)

When Bilbo dies, Thorin is both sad and relieved - sad, because he knows now he will truly never see Bilbo again, because he will no longer be able to watch over him from the Halls of His Fathers now that Bilbo is gone to wherever hobbits go when they die; relieved because Bilbo is finally at peace now. Thorin resigns himself to this fate, because it if it means Bilbo is happy, then that’s enough.

So imagine his surprise when one day not long after, there is a knock on his door and he opens it to find one very familiar Burglar on the doorstep of his rooms, holding two cups of tea. Before Thorin can react, Bilbo says, almost petulantly:

“I once said tea was at four. Apparently, you didn’t listen, because you never listen, do you, and I waited, but you never came. I waited for a few decades, actually, but when you were still late I just assumed you got lost, just like last time. So I decided to come to you instead. To make sure you never got lost again…that I never lost you again.”

And really it’s a wonder no tea is spilt when Thorin hugs him and holds on to him for dear life (oh the irony). Thorin doesn’t really care how Bilbo managed to come where he was never supposed to go, as long as he is here, but he asks anyway, and Bilbo just shrugs and says that the Vala decided to make an exception with him on the account of something along the lines of loyalty, honour and a willing heart.

yes!! i think the problem is when people don't get that characters who are well-written are different in different situations, just like real people. that's why backstory and how characters are shaped is important, because you need those contexts to understand them. but i always thought from auj that thorin was one of those characters who was definitely a softie once he trusted someone ;)

THORIN IS THE BIGGEST SOFTY!!! (well aside from dwalin)

No but seriously everything he’s gone through! The destruction of his home, exile, poverty, starvation, the death of most of his family, suddenly being the head of an entire people and barely old enough to be considered an adult in dwarven society, years of hardship accompanied by people sneering at him, insulting him, doubting him, manipulating him. He’d have had every right to be sullen and bitter about literally everything and everyone!

And yet

(Loyalty, honour, a willing heart)

Fourteen Dwarves and a Hobbit set off to a quest to reclaim a homeland and slay a dragon. Bilbo Baggins is possibly the most unlikely creature to take part in such a journey as the Company’s burglar, which won’t pass unnoticed by the Company’s leader, Thorin Oakenshield.

In the meantime Thorin’s brother, Frerin, notices his brother’s growing interest in their burglar and like all good brothers, he has to do something about it.

Fíli struggles between his duties as the heir to the throne, the promise he gave to his mothers to keep his sister safe, and his wish for freedom.

Kíli is looking forward to show her talents as a young warrior, and ends up meeting a kindred spirit in Tauriel. Tauriel returns the feeling, but as the Captain of King Thranduil’s guard she isn’t supposed to consort with Dwarves - not that Kíli is supposed to consort with Elves either.

The Company thinks they’re all bonkers, but hey, what are friends for?

Big Bang fic coming soon^^

(I’ll make some more edits in the future)

I would take each and every one of these Dwarves over an army from the Iron Hills. For when I called upon them, they answered. Loyalty. Honour. A willing heart… I can ask no more than that.

I’ve muttered about this before but Thorin is pretty much coded to be the hero. From the sad backstory, to the noble quest; he’s even got the love interest.

And pretty much everyone acknowledges this, except I think Thorin himself.

I don’t think Thorin thinks of himself as the hero in the story. I don’t think he spares a thought to what people will say about him in the history books.

So who is the hero in Thorin’s story?

Bilbo of course. Which, he isn’t wrong. Because “The Hobbit” is the title after all. So it’s Thorin and the rest of us who knows what’s up.

Which isn’t really where I was going to go with this, but it’s a bit interesting.

What I was going to point out was that Thorin is a romantic. The opposite of a realist.
Realism? What realism?
Because if he was a realist there’s no bloody way he’d set off on a quest to reclaim Erebor. A romantic on the other hand… Hell yeah. A hope and a dream and loyalty, honour and a willing heart. That’s romanticism.

So how to win the heart of a romantic? I think it’s when Bilbo starts making the big gestures that Thorin falls for him. When Bilbo shows he, an outsider, believes in the quest as much as Thorin does.

And I think Thorin seeing Bilbo as a heroic figure helps him to trust Bilbo.

Heroes are *good*. Which could be part of the reason why he didn’t think Bilbo could take the Arkenstone. (Which from Thorin’s perspective definitely was a not-good act).

Thorin’s inner narrative is basically built to make Bilbo the hero, and that’s also why he wants so much for Bilbo to have a happy ending. Going back to his books and armchair. Happily ever after.

But he fails to know his own importance when it comes to Bilbo’s happiness.

Thorin wanting the happily ever after for Bilbo means that Bilbo’s ending of his book is very bittersweet.

‘And he lived happily ever after, to the end of his days.’

He comes up with that ending as he’s doing the opposite of what Thorin told him, when he’s leaving his garden and books and armchair to go exploring again, planning to see the world again, to go back to Erebor again.

Because how can Bilbo’s happily ever after happen in the Shire when he left his heart half way across the world?

when they get married Bilbo refuses to don anything publicly that cannot be shed in private, foregoing the traditional ear piercings.

But there are more private spots that are less flaunting… More easily hidden.

Kili/Fili - "Can I tell you a secret?"

Send me a pairing and a line of dialogue and I’ll write you something

______________________________________________________

Can I tell you a secret?”

“Sure.” Tucking his phone between his shoulder and ear Fíli opens his bag and tries to push the books into it without setting the phone down so he can keep taking to Kíli. “If you want to.”

I’m checking out this really nice guy and damn does he have a great ass.”

Fíli stops his attempt to get the books deeper into his bag and frowns. “Why are you telling me that?”

A slap on his behind makes the blond yelp and whip around, nearly dropping the phone. Kíli grins down at him, phone still in hand and deep brown eyes sparkling with mischief. “Just thought you should know. Do you have time for dinner?”

Fíli nods dumbly and stares at Kíli with wide eyes as if he can’t believe the brunet is really standing right in font of him. “Just came out of the library.”

“I saw that,” Kíli grins. “Maybe we should hang up now?”

“Oh, yeah.” Disconnecting the call with a sheepish smile Fíli pushes the phone into the pocket of his jeans and watches Kíli doing the same. “Aren’t you supposed to be in Hawaii?”

Kíli just shrugs with a wide grin on his lips, takes Fíli’s arm and starts to drag the blond down the street. “How could I leave you in distress? I swapped my schedule. Now come on, I know a fantastic place for us to get something to eat.”
