Her skin is the color of the moon, her hair is like rivers of fire, and her eyes are sharp shards of ice. She lives in Mirkwood; she knows its secrets, its paths, and its horrors. That is why Gandalf chose her, chose her to lead the dwarves through that cursed forest. But Ithildae is far from human, the black blood of an Orc flows through her veins.

Clawed stone carvings covered the walls, their patterns clinging to the faint memories of the ones that once walked the halls. The ceilings were high and arched with grand Dwarven architecture, ancient and worn from countless years of feral life. Moria was truly a marvel. But the squeals and arguments of young Orcs

King of Eagles, tall and fair,
Ruler of the Valar royal,
To Iluvatar he remains loyal.
Elbereth resides with him,
Silver'd hair, tall and slim.
She is the Maker of the Star,
She hears all, near and far.
Wrapped in majesty and power,
Robed in earthly tree and flower,
Green her eyes and slim her girth,
Yavanna brought forth the forests in birth.
Aule wrought first the Dwarven folk
In secret, but Illuvatar spoke:
"'Tis not their time - they must keep,
And under mountain must they sleep."
Ulmo is the King of the Sea,
And mariners bow down to he.
His horns sound in the deeps and foam,
Calling Elven stragglers home.
Mandos is the Speaker of Doom,
Gathers dead spirits in his room,
In the House of the Dead he abides,
To Iluvatar only he confides.
Nienna the Weeper is his kin,
Pity she is, and welcomes in
Any who are in need of hope,
Those who mourn she helps to cope.
When Orome the huntsman rides,
All evil creatures before him hide,
Loved by horsemen near and far,

Bilbo muffled a low groan in the leather of his rucksack – temporarily utilised as a pillow – and wriggled slightly, attempting to find a comfortable position. It was no good however, no matter which way he shifted the rock on which he lay refused to relinquish its crusade to become one with his spleen.
Sighing, Bilbo sat up and rubbed his face. The rocky terrain leading up to the Misty Mountains was so uncomfortable that virtually all of the company had decided to just power through it. The only ones capable of sleep were Bombur and Bifur, Bombur because his great size meant that he felt the insistent pressure of the stony ground far less than everyone else and Bifur because . . . well, he was Bifur.
“You’lright there Bilbo?” Bofur asked vaguely, from where he sat next to the Hobbit.
“Yeah, I’m fine.” Bilbo lied. He was reluctant to complain. There was nothing anyone could do and e

It was the beginning of a new day. The sun was slowly rising up and the dark blue sky brightened. During your chase the few things that belonged to you became heavier than they were before. It was almost impossible to keep your (e/c) eyes open as there wasn’t much time to rest and have some sleep. You were so tired that you couldn’t even feel your muscles being sore.
"A red sun rises. Blood has been spilt this night." Legolas’ voice reached your ears as you were walking past him. It made you turn your head to gaze at the dawn behind you, hoping that your friends were still alive.
It took you another second to begin moving again. The plains around you seemed like an endless sea of grass and dirt and utter silence. There was nothing to be heard as everything was still. Aragorn crouched on the ground to check for any tracks left by hurrying Orcs. Suddenly his head rose and a moment later he stood up, gesturing with his hand for you t

"I am watching," he whispered in a tone that made it quite clear that he thought this most obvious.
"That I can see," Belegorn said matter-of-factly. "What are you watching?"
Legolas rolled his eyes in mild exasperation and pointed down the passageway to his mother, who had just emerged from a chamber beside her own. He ducked a little to allow Belegorn to peek past him.
"What is it I should see?" Belegorn inquired, staring intently. Legolas rolled his eyes, again, and added a sigh for emphasis.

He was hoping – hoping desperately – that the King under the Mountain would at least listen to his reasoning for his actions. If not, then, well, there wouldn’t be much left of him.

But Bilbo could not bear to see the ferocious lust for life in the eyes of Durin’s heir fade any further. He could not bear to watch idly as gold sickness destroyed everything Thorin and Company had worked and fought so hard for.
So he had taken the Arkenstone he had so carefully hidden from the dwarves and given it away.
The words he had spoken upon revealing the stone to Bard and Thranduil were true, but the truth of them ripped at his heart.
“This is the Arkenstone of Thrain, the Heart of the Mountain,” he had said, holding it up for their inspection, “And it is also the heart of Thorin. He values it above a river of g
To Bring Them Back - CH 9The sun was rising; most of the Dwarves had passed out due to the excess consumption of beer and mead that took lieu moments ago. Only Thorin and Bilbo, who both strayed away from the camp, were awake. They observed as the first sun rays pierced from behind the treetops and lessened the black that once pervaded the sky. They were very quiet yet comfortable in each other's presence; however, there were still matters that needed to be discussed.To Bring Them Back - CH 92 years ago in Drama More Like This
Thorin was the first one to make a move; he shifted closer to the hobbit and placed his hand gently over Bilbo's. The latter smiled and responded to the gesture by intertwining his fingers with his King's. Then there was more silence until Thorin built the nerve to actually speak, "Halfling…" he said slowly but nervously, "I would like to thank you…for what you did for my nephews and I. When we parted in that different past, although I may have apologized for my actions, the conditions weren't necessarily positive. I never knew your

There were a great many things which, although they seemed quite natural to the dwarves, initially mystified the little Hobbit. Their method of greeting each other by smashing their skulls together was only the first incident in which he became aware of their unfamiliar customs. He quickly discovered more over the next few days of travelling and, in the privacy of his head; he wryly conceded that Gandalf had been right. The world was most certainly not in his books. To be entirely truthful, he learned more about the peoples of Middle Earth from one talk with the well-educated and surprisingly chatty Dori, than he had done in his entire life up until that point.
Needless to say, Dwalin’s nipple-ring had been a major eye-opener and even now the company liked to do impressions of Bilbo’s squeak of surprise upon noticing it. Bifur’s injury too had alarmed him, although in truth the axe firmly lodged in his
A King's Blessing (Bagginshield - Hobbit fanfic)As Thorin and Bilbo walked together through the great hall leading eventually to the Throne Room, a young Dwarf woman with a baby in her arms and a small child by the hand ran towards them. She stopped in front of Thorin, taking a long bow, then came up to him asking for what Bilbo interpreted as a blessing for her new baby. The first born in Erebor since its relative restoration. Very gallantly, Thorin approached her and bent over the little bundle. He smiled and caressed the baby’s cheek, whispering something in Khuzdul. As well as Bilbo could hear, it was a wish of long life and prosperity.A King's Blessing (Bagginshield - Hobbit fanfic)2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
“What will you name him?” asked Thorin, stepping back at Bilbo’s side, after completing his kingly duty.
“If we may, Your Majesty, we want to name him Frerin, in honour of your brother.”
“An excellent choice,” approved Thorin, then glanced down at the baby’s older sibling, who was staring at him mesmerized. “And who are you?”

It goes something like this:
Unlike the other peoples of Middle-Earth, hobbits could not trace their origins with any degree of certainty. Long ago, perhaps, they’d had records of how exactly they had come to be. But those records had been lost or forgotten by the passage of time, passed into legend until no one was sure

It Has Been SaidThorin was on his deathbed and everyone knew it. The silence in the camp was absolute, and it was strange to hear when just before the battle it had been full of song and cheer.

But there was one creature who would not leave his side no matter what. That creature was Bilbo Baggins. He would never admit it but ever since Thorin had embraced him on the mountain peak his feelings toward the leader had taken a turn for (in Bilbo's opinion) the worse. He hadn't been able to stop thinking about the dwarf for a single second during the journey. When the company had been imprisoned by the wood elves, Bilbo had spent a lot of his time sitting, invisible, outside Thorin's cell and listening to him sing. His voice was deep and soothing, and had actually helped Bilbo to calm down and think. If not for that voice, he was positive that the company would still be locked in the elv

“Come on, ya stupid rocks! Make a spark!”
Dwalin practically shouted as he knelt by the fire furiously striking two rocks together in an attempt to get a flame going. So far, he was incredibly unsuccessful and everyone else was starting to get impatient.
“Dwalin, you've been striking those rocks together for several minutes.” Fili said. “Face it; it’s not going to work. Why don’t you take a break and let someone else give it a try.”
“No.” Dwalin said stubbornly. “I can handle this. Back in my warfare days, the other warriors used to call me Flame Master, because of my skills when lighting a fire. I know what I’m doing.”
He continued to strike the rocks together very aggressively. But the more he tried, the less the rocks wanted to spark, causing him to get angrier with each strike.

In its cation state, a Feanor can induce a dipole in most Elf molecules and elements, causing instability, which is particularly pronounced in the Sons of Feanor molecules. Unlike other elements, a Feanor +3 will experience an increase in its electronegativity and attempt to wrest electrons away from other elements.

Silver music in the air.
But I hear now only silence
In Lothlórien the fair.

Where once the flowers grew.
Time has touched the forest
Gone Lothlórien I knew.
Tear-stained face and empty fingers
As cold as stars above.
Memories, only memories
In Lothlórien, I loved.
No singing; naught but echoes
In the groves where phantoms tread.

My Lothlórien is dead.

Grief and darkness, light dispels.

How One Hobbit Defeated Five Armies of StupidityThe story of how Bilbo Baggins saved the lives of his dwarven companions throughout his journey to the Lonely Mountain was one Gandalf the Grey never tired of telling, particularly the part at the end with the Arkenstone. Bilbo thought the tale was quite overrated and overdone, finding the wizard’s way of turning a phrase to be silly and mocking instead of sincere. In his own eyes Bilbo hadn’t done anything spectacular or amazing; he had simply decided that no one was going to die as a result of Thorin Oakenshield’s daft plan to reclaim his home and then put every ounce of his energy into making that decision a reality. For the most part the little hobbit had his work cut out for him, because the dwarves were a hearty race who did not take to injury lightly. It wasn’t until they had reached the Lonely Mountain and the dragon was slain did the real challenge to his task rear its ugly head.How One Hobbit Defeated Five Armies of Stupidity2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

The red-haired elf stared at you with wide, curious eyes. It wasn’t quite common that someone she would be summoned and find herself standing with one that she does not know – let alone a female elf sporting a sword on both sides of her hips – considering that the only reason the elven king, Thanduil, usually communicated with her was when she’d report to him with news of completed patrols and protection of Mirkwood.
