they're freaking perfect for each other

thorin loves bilbo so much??? like so much. he wanted to share his kingdom with him, gave him an incredibly valuable thing at the height of his sickness, trusted him exclusively (even above his own family) and didn’t accuse him of taking the arkenstone at all in botfa bc he trusted him so much, smiled at him like he was his whole world when bilbo showed him a freaking acorn… 

and bilbo loves thorin so so much??? he wanted to get him out of erebor when he saw it wasn’t good for thorin mentally (or physically), concerned about his eating and sleeping habits, got so desperate to keep him away from harm and out of war that he gave away the arkenstone to his “enemies” when he knew what it meant to him, but it was all to protect thorin…

they both just… love each other so much
