Courting among hobbits is rather a simple matter. One of the things the suitor is supposed to do for their loved is to create a personal tea with a mixture of herbs and flowers carefully chosen, that would be offered to the courted one. Thorin decides he wants to follow this tradition to properly court Bilbo. Bilbo is overjoyed and flattered by the attention, but can barely stifle his mirth at Thorin’s awkwardness.
Bagginshield Month is over but I still have to do most of the requests ; v ;
Anon said: sdjhgkdgl how about, for the bagginshield month, bilbo and thorin like, drinking tea, having a dinner, or just enjoying each others company in bag end?
and as usual I messed up things XP I hope I satisfied anon’s request ♥
Optional: “mmm It smells really good! What did you use?” *sips* “Uh, ahem, this, that, that plant with tiny white flowers that look like a snowflake I found in the fields..” “WHAT” *spurts the tea*
To rebuilt Erebor is not an easy task, and often Thorin wakes up before dawn, shifting quietly as to not wake his Consort. When Bilbo wakes - early but not as nearly as Thorin - always manages to find his husband to give him a good morning kiss
In the ‘Hobbit’, both book and movie, when the Dwarves are getting ready for battle against Thranduil and Bard, Thorin had the chance to put on the ONLY Mithril shirt ever made.
Virtually indestructible, thin and lightweight, and impossibly stronger than the tin cans that he and the Dwarves were putting on. Considering Thorin had the only item that he knew would undoubtedly protect the life of anyone he chose, as King, he should have worn it or at least given it to either Fili or Kili, since they’re the last of his legacy.
But didThorin wear it? No. Did he give it to Fili or Kili? No.
Mahal save us “Into the west” literally screams Bagginshield. Tbh the song relates to them more than any other characters in the Lord of the rings and the Hobbit combined. The fact that it’s played in the Return of the king when Bilbo sails to Valinor indicates that this song could actually be Thorin speaking to Bilbo. I believe that Thorin never went to the afterlife and instead he waited for him, his soul lingered in the oak tree Bilbo planted because how could he go on without him? It’s Thorin’s spirit speaking to Bilbo. I’m just gonna go through the lyrics with you on this
Your sweet and weary head
Night is falling
You’ve come to journey’s end
So this is basically Thorin comforting him “Your life is now at its end, your time has come, you’re ready leave this world”
And dream of the ones who came before
“Dream of Fili and Kili”
They are calling
From across the distant shore “They are waiting for us” Well yeah this makes sense right? Fili and Kili have been waiting to be reunited with Thorin and Bilbo, their souls passed on only because both of them died, essentially giving them the peace they needed. Whereas Thorin couldn’t, his soul stayed with Bilbo
Why do you weep?
What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see
All of your fears will pass away
Safe in my arms
You’re only sleeping
I feel like Bilbo knows that Thorin is still with him, but at times he thinks its just him going mad with grief. These words are Thorin comforting Bilbo during all those times he sat in his armchair and wept and mourned him jfc this is so depressing kill me now
What can you see
On the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea
A pale moon rises
The ships have come to carry you home
And all will turn
To silver glass
A light on the water
All souls pass “Both our souls will pass into the undying lands, together”
Into the world of night
Through shadows falling
Out of memory and time
Don’t say: «We have come now to the end»
White shores are calling
You and I will meet again
“This isn’t the end, I’ve been waiting for you, and now your time has come, soon you will see me again”
And you’ll be here in my arms
“We will be together forever”
This headcanon is depressing and beautiful and makes me want to die. But if these are Thorin’s words and he did stay with Bilbo for his remaining time in Middle-earth then I think I can deal with his passing a little more than I could before. Tbh the thought of them being reunited is the only thing keeping me alive right now so I have to believe it is real
Am I still in time for the Bagginshield Week prompt?
Quick sketch for the monday prompt: Welcome home! auggusst gave me the idea
After a tiring, stressing council with stubborn dwarrows and irritating elves, Thorin comes back to the Royal Quarters muttering curses to all those idiots and complaining rather childishly. Bilbo greets him with a smile and patiently calmes him while starting removing his king heavy robes. Oh, it’s something that happens quite often :D
An angry sports dad who berates the coach when their kid isn’t put out on the field enough to play or curses out the ref when there’s an unfair call about their kid. Yells at other parents when their kid hurts his kid and basically heckles the opposing team and their supporters.
The PTA dad who has to smoothe everything over after his husband loses his shit so they dont get banned from events. He whispers, squeezing angry dad’s shoulder, “I swear to god if you get me booted from the concessions team for the drama club I will kill you we are doING THE LION KING THIS YEAR AND IT’S A BIG DEAL FOR ME - FOr the KIDS”
Here are my notes from the History and contemporary Islam xD Tired King Thorin and his wonderful wife <3
There have been recently voices “Why do you draw fem! Bilbo? Do not you understand that it’s a beautiful love between two guys? >(”. So what? I can draw my otp as I want. I’m writing fanfick about femBilbo. So I draw Bilbo as a girl. A zatem roluj bobola przez łąki i pola żałosny glonojadzie. Nie pozdrawiam…
Of all the names Bella Baggins ever held over the course of her long life, of those given to her by the various noble peoples of Middle-earth, or the ones she herself took up for one reason or another, most being altogether too bold for any self-respecting hobbit to claim, her first and favorite was Bright Eyes.
(Being the account of the fractious and fraught romance between Belladonna Oakenshield, née Baggins, High Queen of Erebor, and her king.)
Updating every few days on AO3. Expect much snarking and sniping, and lady hobbits being BAMFs <3
But could you even fathom Bard strolling into some adorable novelty/gift shop to peek around for some little surprise gifts for the Bardlings and getting his fingers stuck in a Chinese finger trap?
Being Bard, he doesn’t want to break it and he doesn’t really want to pay for such a wretched thing. Even though he feels like an idiot, seeing only after he was already trapped that the contraptions were in the “gag/joke” section, he has to go up to the counter and ring the bell for someone to come help him.
In comes gorgeous Mr. Blondie with legs as long and slim as a hair of Aphrodite, eyes glittering and sharp like blue tinted glass. This guy has got it goin’ on and Bard wanted to turn and run from the store - steal the dumb toy, he didn’t care, but it was too late for him. He was locked in the blonde’s sights.
His name tag read Thranduil (oh god was that a mouthful (no dirty thoughts intended, but they definitely came) and Bard was most certainly pronouncing it incorrectly in his head).
Thranduil just smirks and removed the trap by some grace of magic.
“Happens all the time.”
Whether it was the smell of incense, the cutesy trinkets, or the charming store owner that kept bringing Bard back there, he had no idea (as if).
(Or maybe Thranduil comes to the counter the first time and Bard drops some disgusting, cheesy line to make the situation less awkward. It doesn’t work, but it catches Thranduil’s interest most definitely.)
