Title: In Sickness and Health
Pairing: Bifur/Oin, Oin & Gloin
Summary: Three weeks after Bifur was injured, Oin is still uncharacteristically optimistic. Gloin just wants to make sure his brother will be okay.

Based on a prompt from macavitythemysterycat, who asked for the moment Oin realizes that Bifur is never going to be back to his old self. I got lots of info on the actual medical impact of Bifur’s injury from asktheoakenshieldbros. This is the first time in a while I’ve had a pairing with natural endearments, and I quite like it; Oin uses “love” and Bifur uses the Khuzdul word for “sun[-man],” translated more loosely as “sunshine.”
