Amidst the Winds of Winter - Chapter 1 By @paranoidfridge

After the battle Bilbo returns to the Shire. Letters are exchanged, life goes on, and despite pining for each other, Thorin and Bilbo settle in their respective places.

Until one year Bilbo wakes on his birthday to find snow covering the ground and a second Fell Winter dawning upon the Shire.  

A missive from the Blue Mountains reveals the predicament of the Shire to Erebor. And Thorin decides that despite the distance Erebor will help. He leads an army toward the Shire, while Bilbo struggles to protect his fellow hobbits, himself, and his young cousin Frodo from encroaching wolves and orcs so they may all survive this winter.

–Here my first illustrations from the fabulous writing of Paranoidfridge for The Hobbit Bigbang. To me it’s really an honor draw scenes of her story! ^w^ 

Survival is hard for children and the elderly, out in the zones.

If a Killjoy does want to start a family, they will often start them young, and have many children, as the death rate among children is high.

With the harsh conditions of the desert, the elderly also struggle to survive. The extreme temperatures, radiation, and lack of resources makes life tough. 
There is a great respect for older Killjoys, in awe of the hardships they’ve survived and the wisdom they have.

“My mother was in the room when we worked out my lead part [on “(The Best Part of) Breaking Up”], and Phil [Spector] kept telling her how he wanted the record to sound like Ella Johnson, who was this blues singer from my mother’s time. Every time I’d sing a verse, Phil would turn to my mom and say, “How’s that, Mrs. Bennett? Is that how Ella would’ve done it?” When I made up the part that goes, “Oowee, baby…come on, baby,” Phil liked it so much he jumped up on the bed and started bouncing around like he was on a trampoline.”

HONESTLY the combination of this photo with that quote has been cracking me up for DAYS. ONLY WE KNOW WHAT WE’VE BEEN THROUGH,’ says Harry Styles while he smiles through the pain, his jaunty beret and standard fall coat of excellent concealing the truth. ONLY WE KNOW and you’ll get nothing from me or my smile about it. WE’VE COME BACK FROM THE WARS and they change you, and the bonds of our struggles and our triumphs can’t be captured by a simple magazine spread. You’ll get nothing from me, but feel free to keep trying. Talk less, smile more.
