Dis' letter - Preface“I have lost much in this yet short life of mine,”Dis' letter - Preface by Ingvild-S
Dís sat in a deep chair, her short feet dangling, barely grazing the floor. Even as a dwarf she was reckoned small, as she was shorter than most of her kin.
A single candle was standing beside her hand. The room was dark but for the little flame beside her. It threw a solemn light on the words she had written.
The pen in her hand scratched the paper before she stopped again and returned it to its ink stand. Balls of paper were scattered around her on the table and the floor. She had started writing and then changed her mind many times by the count of them.
Dís was about to curl the paper before her in her hands, but she stopped herself. She stared at the words. “I have lost much”. Dís had never been especially poetic and this would prove to be the hardest letter she would ever write. Again, she put the pen to the paper and continued to write.
“I lost my mother to the scorching fires of Smaug

Chapter IX: Elf-Friend
A/N: Picture is Natalie Portman, my fancast of fem!Fili.
Bramble’s ears perked up when she heard the little boy speaking in Sindarin. She went over to him. “Gi suilon! Im Bramble Baggins.”
“No,” Bramble said as she nodded in the affirmative.
“What are you saying to him, Baggins?” Thorin said.
“I gave my name. The child asked if I spoke Elvish. I just said yes,” Bramble said.
“You just said no,” Ori said.
“No means yes in Sindarin,” Bramble said.
“Oooooooh,” Ori said before being smacked behind the head by her eldest sister.
Estel tugged at Bramble’s sleeve. “Peditham hi sui vellyn?”
Bramble looked up to Estel’s Mother who nodded her approval. “No,” Bramble said with a wide smile.
Estel cheered before talking about all his favorite things. Bramble was too distracted to pay any attention to the di

Chapter VII: Send Me On My Way
A/N: Picture is of Karen Gillian, my fancast of Nori.
Bag-End was empty by the time Bramble had woken up the next morning. She had never realized how quiet the place was until that moment. It had always been meant to be full of family. Bramble’s parents wanted at least a half-dozen children, but they stopped when both Bramble and her mother had almost died during the pregnancy. There was no one Bramble took an interest in so she could have little Hobbits of her own. She was far too “eccentric” and “intelligent” as her grandmothers would say. They also said it meant only the best would come for her. Bramble gave up looking decades ago.
The kitchen was bare (save for some animal crackers, tea, and Spam), but also completely clean. Bramble drank her tea and tried to warm herself up. The house was too cold, even with the heated floors.
After dressing in her normal brown skirt, white button up blouse, and a green ve

Chapter VI: The Line of Durin
A/N: Image is my fancast of Balin.
Balin sighed. “It appears we have lost our burglar. Probably for the best. The odds were always against us. After all, what are we? Merchants, miners, tinkers, toy-makers: hardly the stuff of legend.”
“There are a few warriors amongst us,” Thorin said as he smiled at his friend.
“Old warriors,” Balin corrected.
Thorin stood up straighter. “I will take each and every one of these Dwarves over an army from the Iron Hills. For when I called upon them, they came. Loyalty. Honor. A willing heart. I can ask no more than that.”
“You don’t have to do this. You have a choice. You’ve done honorably by our people. You have built a new life for us in the Blue Mountains of New York: a life of peace and plenty. A life that is worth more than all the gold in Erebor.”
Thorin shook his head and held up the key. “From my grandfather to my father, t
