thorin-and-company

thorin and bilbo, upon seeing a man with a bow and arrows who appears to be hostile:

bilbo *shoves himself in front of thorin* thorin *shoulders bilbo out of the way and faces the archer* bilbo *maneuvers his body in front of thorin’s* thorin *pushes bilbo behind him* bilbo *pulls thorin back behind him* the company *collectively rolls their eyes*

striving-artist asked:

After escaping from Gollum, Bilbo takes the ring off early. The goblins see him, and this time he doesn't put the ring on fast enough to evade them. Thinking he was one of the dwarves' companions, the goblins don't kill him, instead the give him over to Azog's orcs. Thorin and the company determine that their Burglar saw his chance and took it, but this time he doesn't appear miraculously. They still end up on the cliff, and in the trees, spirits a little more broken than they were(1/2)

[2/2] But this time when Azog appears through the trees, he’s dragging Bilbo with him. Azog taunts Thorin, and after seeing a reaction, knows the halfling has value. As Thorin charges the pale orc, Bilbo is stabbed and dropped unmoving. The eagles arrive in time to save them all, but don’t pick up Bilbo thinking him dead. From the air, Thorin sees Bilbo trying to crawl away from the orcs, but can do nothing to help.

but what if bilbo’s already dead, and the eagle takes him anyway

and thorin wakes on the carrock again, wounded again, wrong again, and whispers, the halfling

all gandalf can do is shake his head

and thorin struggles to his feet, and sees bilbo, maimed on the rocks, and the dwarves draw back to let him through

and he takes bilbo’s head in his arms and he’s heartbroken, because his one has died (and he didn’t even know, didn’t even realise what he meant to thorin) and he swallows and says that they should bury him

and they do, in a meadow of wildflowers

Fem!Ori - Katsucon 2014
Made and modelled by me
Photography by Lazy Cat Photography

I’d been dreaming about getting winter snow pictures of this cosplay since way back in May when I first started working on it for a summer convention. And while the big Katsu snowstorm made me almost a full day late for the con, I forgive it entirely for letting me take these amazing photos with Karina!! They turned out totally Erebor-tastic! Outside in the snow is the perfect place for Ori to read her favorite books and practice her aim at icicles~!

Another meme prompt, VIKINGS-AU
Thorin is a viking chieftain. He and 12 of his blood brothers are on a mission to free their homeland from the invasion of Smaug the Dragon who is a powerful dark sorcerer blessed by Loki himself.
Bilbo is a young monk whose monastery was  attacked and ravaged by Thorin’s gang and he ended up as a hostage. Not a slave for trading though – according to Oin’s vision, Bilbo is The One chosen by Odin, the only person with the power to defeat Smaug and Thorin would rather kill him than let him go, so Bilbo actually has no other choice but to join these dirty heathens on their quest. Monastery life was boring as hell anyway)

I’m terribly sorry for all those tasteless non-historical horns on their helmets – BOFUR MADE ME DO IT. I SWEAR.    
And well, yeah, I totally combined Thror’s crown and Thor’s helmet, please, pleaaaase don’t hurt me, I have no idea where this came from…
