So lately I was having those crazy Dark!Erebor AU plot-bunnies. Like, what if Thorin died in BoFA and Bilbo has instantly gone completely bonkers with grief, to the point that he actually summoned something REALLY BAD with his ring and force of will. Thorin is resurrected but it’s not a happy miracle but an act of Necromagic, so the dwarf king isn’t the same person he was before. Same goes for Bilbo who literally sold his soul to bring the dwarf from the dead and the price he must pay is to continue living as a vessel for the Dark Power he evoked. That evil thing is cunning to act discreet enough so nobody notices the difference at first. Thorin is crowned as a King of Erebor and though he manages to revive the kingdom to its former glory, his policy borders on cruel and downright despotic. And not one of his brutal decisions made without the knowledge and lead of the Halfling who follows Thorin like a vicious shadow and instigates him to rule with an iron fist and violently punish everyone who goes against his will.
I’d imagine Thorin chopping heads off while Bilbo, the sneaky fucker, cuts some bitches in dark corners when the insurgent dwarves keep attempting to kill them both or sabotage their ruling.
So, like, Erebor becomes a base of Mordor and biggest threat to whole Middlearth.
lol, i guess i’ll just take my pills and go to sleep K BYE
I have not seen anything as perfectly dark as this in quite a long, long while. Possibly ever. My good lord.
Friendly reminder that Fili and Kili weren’t born until almost a hundred years after the fall of Erebor and are rescuing a home they never knew
I was watching The Hobbit today with subtitles on (don’t judge, I find some of the quieter background dialogue impossible to hear, but it makes it onto the subtitles). Anyway, in the scene after the trolls are turned to stone Thorin acknowledges to Gandalf that they are all in one piece but ‘no thanks to your burglar’, to which I always thought Gandalf said ‘he had the nerves to play for time’ (and I put the rather strange pronunciation of ‘nerves’ down to Sir Ian’s accent). Turns out my vocabulary isn’t as good as I thought it was.

Out Of The Frying-Pan Into The Fire
Riddles in the Dark
THE WAY KILI LOOKS AROUND HIS KNEES OMFG - KILI BILBO IS NOT THAT SHORT OMG YOU PRECIOUS BABY

AND FILI LOOKS UP THE TREES. LOL. Middle-Earths most intelligent Dwarves right there.
ARE YOU EVEN SURPRISED THEY LOST THE PONIES NOW
but you got to love them anyway
It must be why he worries about them more than the rest of the Fellowship, in my opinion.
Pft! I’m so not crying myself while making this gifset ;w; Insomnia antics I tell you
WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU
FUCK. YOU. THAT POST ABOUT IT WAS BAD ENOUGH! THIS IS MOTHERFUCKING EVIL!!! FUCK A DUCK ARE YOU SATAN!!!!!
OH GOD NO.
In the last Hobbit movie, I don’t want Fili or Kili to know the other has died
I want them to of been separated during the battle, and each of them, one with an ax in his gut and the other with a sword in his chest, to think at least my brother made it
You know that sword Frodo pulls out of Bilbo’s chest in the beginning of the movie?
It’s one of Fili’s.
YOU SHOULD SPECIFY THAT YOU MEAN ‘TREASURE CHEST’ OR ‘STORAGE CHEST’ AND NOT ‘RIBCAGE’
BECAUSE IT’S 2 AM AND I JUST DID THE WORST DOUBLETAKE
