we are living proof of a world gone mad
but this is all we have, we spin in cycles
we drift in the dark, our world falling apart
chance made us brothers, loyal to the last breath i take
our legacy won’t be wasted on me

our legacy, while she sleeps

What's in a name - Thorin and Company

Likely invented by Tolkien, possibly derived from the root bil “sword” which is found in some Germanic names.

Old Norse Gandalfr “wand-elf”, from gandr “enchanted/magical object or being, charm, magic wand” + alfr “elf”. Found in Dvergatal in the Poetic Edda.

Old Norse Þorinn “bold one”, from þora “to dare, to have courage” (not to be confused with þórr “thunder”). Found in Dvergatal.

Not found in Norse myth, unlike most of Tolkien’s dwarf names, possibly created by Tolkien from Old Norse bál “fire”, thus meaning “burning one”.

Old Norse Dvalinn, possibly “dormant one” or “slumbering one”. Same root as dvalen “to sleep” and dvelja “to delay”. Found in Dvergatal.

Likely “filer”, compare modern Scandinavian fil “file” (as in the tool). Found in Dvergatal.

Likely “the one who uses a wedge” or “wedger”, from Old Norse kíll “wedge” (modern Scandinavian kil or kile). Found in Dvergatal.

Old Norse Dóri, obscure meaning, likely “borer” or “auger-man” (that is, one who drills). Found in Dvergatal.

Old Norse Nóri, obscure meaning, possibly “little shaver, small bit of something”. Found in Dvergatal.

Old Norse Óri “raver, wrangler”, from óra “to rave, wrangle”. Found in Dvergatal.

Old Norse Óinn “shy one”, from óask “to fear, dread”. Found in Dvergatal.

Old Norse Glóinn “glowing one”, from glóa “to glow”. Found in Dvergatal.

Old Norse Bívurr, from Old Frisian *bever “beaver”, by extension “hard worker, diligent one”. Found in Dvergatal.

Old Norse Bǫvurr, unknown meaning and etymology, possibly an imitation of Bívurr. Found in Dvergatal.

Old Norse Bǫmburr or Bömburr, likely “the swollen one”, from bumba “drum, barrel”. Found in Dvergatal.

Note: The Suffix in Óin and Glóin is the same as in Thorin, Balin and Dwalin and should be pronounced as a separate syllable. The proper pronunciation is therefore ‘o-in’ and ‘glo-in’, not ‘oyn’ and ‘gloyn’. The same is true for Thráin and Dáin (‘thra-in’ and ‘da-in’).
When I watched this scene I laughed so hard I almost cried
  • Kili: I could have anything down my trousers
  • Tariel: Or nothing
  • ME: OOOOOOOOOOOHHHH!!!!! SHE SAID HIS DICK WAS NONEXISTANT!!!! *pterodactyl noise* *dies laughing*

Author’s note: I’m rewriting this fanfic because the original’s format was ugly as hell and it irked my soul so I’m redoing the whole thing 

Fandom: The Hobbit

Summary: The Fem!Reader is on her period and when Fili and Kili find out what periods are they think she’s dying…(which is what it feels like)

Italicized: Thoughts

Warnings: Cursing

Thorin had finally decided to make camp and you were miserable. You’ve been catching wave after wave of cramps all day. You were trying not to show the pain because you were surrounded by eleven dwarves, a hobbit, and an old wizard. NO. Everyone was sitting at the campfire and Bombur was passing around dinner. You weren’t hungry so you decided to excuse yourself, “Hey guys, I’m not really hungry so I’m just going to go lay down.” You stand and wince as another waves of craps hits you. “Y/N are you alright?” Kili asks.

Yeah! I’m great besides the fact that my uterus is trying to commit suicide!

You smile sweetly, masking the pain and say, “I’m fine Kili, I’m just tired.” You leave the campfire and lay down on your bedroll. Fili and Kili walk over to you.

Now what?!

“Y/N do you still have those bandages we were looking for earlier?” Fili asks. “Yeah, they’re in my bag” you say. Fili and Kili start looking through your bag and you roll over hugging your sides. “What are these?” You rolls over and what they were holding were not bandages.


Kili turns the pad over in his hands, “Are they some sort of bandage?” he asks. “Yes are a very special kind of bandage and they’re mine” you say snatching the pads from them. “What are they, and why are the special?” Fili asks. You take a deep breath and say, “Pads, they’re pads.” “What are the used for?” Kili asks. 

Damn it…

“I use them when I’m on my period which I’m on right now” you explain.  “What is a period?” Kili asks. 


“You don’t know a thing about women do you?” you ask. They just blink at you. “No? Okay… A period is a cycle women go through every month where blood comes out our-” “You’re bleeding?!” Fili interrupts. “Well yes” you say. They stare at you horrified. “How long have you been bleeding?!” Kili asks. “About three days” you say. They both jump up and start running around the camp yelling “SHE’S DYING! Y/N’S DYING! SHE’S BLEEDING OUT! SHE’S DYING!” Everyone’s standing up worried and confused except for Gandalf, Thorin, and Bilbo. 

“Fili! Kili! Come here!” Thorin orders. The two brothers stop yelling and obey. “Y/N is not dying” Thorin says. “But she’s blee-” “She is not dying” Thorin states firmly. Fili and Kili look a each other confused. Gandlaf step in, “Yes Y/N is bleeding but it is a natural process. Now look at the poor girl you’ve embarrassed her.” Everyone was staring at you and you were completely mortified.

Kill me now

Fili and Kili walk over to your bed roll and sit down. You sit up and face them. “I’m sorry” they say in unison. “I forgive you” you say. Fili smiles and fidgets with the hem of his tunic, embarrassed by the situation. “…Why?” Kili asks. “I don’t know! It’s just the way women were designed!” you snap. “Sorry to upset you” Kili says. “No it’s just I get these cramps and they really hurt and it makes everything all sensitive and makes me really irritated” you explain. “Oh!” They say. “I need chocolate”



A/N: For @princess-of-erebor1992​ who requested a fic based on this imagine from @imaginexhobbit​! Sorry it took a little while (and that I’m posting it at an awkward time), but here it is!

Summary: After being dropped in Middle Earth, it takes a while for you to find your voice again.

Word Count: 1471 (went a little overboard on this one)

Warnings: None, I think? Some mild freaking out, maybe.

It had been a full day since you had appeared on the forest path in front of the company, glowing like a wraith, and just as silent. The panic on the dwarves’ face at the unexpected presence was nothing to your panicked expression, your eyes darting wildly around as you took in the horrifyingly foreign surroundings. Gandalf had swooped in and collected you with very little fuss, insisting that you travel with the company. Thorin had been less than pleased at that, protesting that they knew nothing about you, that you would only be a hindrance on this very important quest. But the grey wizard merely ignored Thorin’s protestations and hoisted you up onto Bilbo’s pony, assuring you that the company would take good care of you.

Through the whole exchange, you had not said a word. You were too terrified.

Thorin the Khazad Reindeer had a very shiny stone…

New Girl

Request:  Can you do a fic maybe with Kili and Fili being adorably overprotective of reader being the newest member of the company?

Answer: Hi Anon! I had fun writing this and I hope you enjoy it!

Warnings: None

“New girl” God you hated being called that. Even though you were the latest addition to the company they should at least call you by your name, or much less learn it. The company had finally stopped to make camp and you stood still for a moment watch everyone rush around you, setting things up before the sun set. “Erm… new girl, tie up the ponies. Fili! Kili! Make sure she doesn’t lose them!” Thorin yelled. You sighed, discouraged by the label you’ve been stuck with. 

Fili and Kili make their way over to you and notice your saddened expression. Fili nudges you to pull you from your thoughts. “What’s wrong?” Kili asks. “Why must everyone call me ‘New Girl’? Why can’t they just learn my actual name?” you ask. Fili wraps his arm around you and holds the bridles of the ponies in his free hand. “Cheer up, Y/N” Kili says as he does the same as his brother. 

“It’ll be fine” Fili says as you all begin tying the ponies to a few trees. “You tend to worry about the little things don’t you? Well it makes sense for a Runt” He adds. They nicknamed you Runt because you were the youngest and shortest. Even shorter than Bilbo. You found it annoying and cute at the same time. You shoved him causing him to loose is balance and fall, getting tangled in a few of the bridles. 

You and Kili laughed as Fili struggled to untangle himself from the ponies. “Shut up!” Fili shouts as he is finally able to stand again. “What I was going to say before you pushed me was that new girls are always very attractive” Fili says. You roll you eyes at him and finishing tying the last pony. “He’s right they always are” Kili adds. You frown and say, “Thanks guys, not exactly the pick me up I was going for, but I guess that’ll work for now”

They both look at each other and then frown at you. “What?” you ask. “It really makes you upset doesn’t it?” Fili asks. Kili studies your face, “It does” he confirms. That seemed to flip a switch in them. You knew all about that switch and you knew that you couldn’t flip it back. “Here we go” you mumble. “I refuse to let them call you that again if it makes you feel like that” Fili states. “Yeah, you won’t have to worry about being called that ever again after today Y/N” Kili adds. Oh no.

The two brothers were marching back to camp, anger radiating off of them. “Guys, you really don’t have to do this” you say. No effect. “Seriously guys it’s fine just leave it alone” you add. This made them stop. “It’s fine? Y/N It is not fine they’re continuously hurting your feeling and we’re putting a stop to it” Fili states. They starts marching off towards camp again leaving you standing there. You knew that they would end up starting something like they always do when they get all protective of you. You were worried about the fact that this might not end well.

By the time you catch up they were already standing over everyone around the campfire. They were scolding the group and telling them how you were offended by the label they had given you. “You should’ve seen how upset she was earlier!” Fili shouts. “HEY!” you yell getting everyone’es attention. “Guys just stop” you say. “They hurt your feelings Y/N” Kili says. You take a deep breath and say, “You guys are very protective of me and I love that, but you’re pushing it.”

“We just-” “I know, but I’m a big girl and I can take care of myself” you interrupt. There was a moment of silence between you and the boys. “We did not realize we were offending you Y/N ” Thorin says. “Yes and we won’t call you that again las” Bofur adds. The rest of them fallow suit and add in their apologies. Fili and Kili smile feeling father accomplished and roll your eyes at them. You loved how they cared, but they tend to go overboard like the idiots they are. Either way you knew you always had someone who was there for you no matter what.

I just realized the Dwarves probably thought they were supposed to eat everything (literally everything) Bilbo had. After all, Bilbo’s about to embark on a months-long quest. He probably won’t be back for at least a year, if ever. They can’t very well leave all these perishables in the pantry to rot while he’s gone. 

It’s like when your refrigerator breaks and you call over all your friends and neighbors to help you eat everything before it goes bad.

Unfortunately, Bilbo did not get the memo that his fridge was broken.
