And I have fought
And with flesh and blood I commanded an army
Through it all
I have given my heart for a moment of glory
↳ in the end, black veil brides

Thorin dying is really sad for lots of folks, and if I focus in on that fact, I get sad too. But I gotta say, since like minute five of arriving in this fandom, I’ve managed successfully to pretend that he never died at all. Kili and Fili too. What death scenes? What are you even talking about? I don’t know you. Please leave my house.

Mithril & Secrets (Bagginshield Thoughts)
So, I’ve been thinking about the mithril coat and Bagginshield again, because of a quote I recently came across while doing some research.
“‘Also there is this!’ said Bilbo, bringing out a parcel which seemed to be rather heavy for its size. He unwound several folds of old cloth, and held up a small shirt of mail. It was close-woven of many rings, as supple almost as linen, cold as ice, and harder than steel. It shone like moonlit silver, and was studded with white gems. With it was a belt of pearl and crystal.
‘It’s a pretty things, isn’t it?’ said Bilbo, moving it in the light. ‘And useful. It is my dwarf-mail that Thorin gave me. I got it back from Michel Delving before I started, and packed it with my luggage: I brought all the mementoes of my Journey away with me, except the Ring. But I did not expect to use this, and I don’t need it now, except to look at sometimes. You hardly feel any weight when you put it on.’
‘I should look - well, I don’t think I should look right in it,’ said Frodo.
‘Just what I said myself,’ said Bilbo. ‘But never mind about looks. You can wear it under your outer clothes. Come on! You must share this secret with me. Don’t tell anybody else! But I should feel happier if I knew you were wearing it. I have a fancy it would turn even the knives of the Black Riders,’ he ended in a low voice.” (The Fellowship of the Ring, page 364, emphasis added in bold)
I find it very interesting that Bilbo asked Frodo to keep the mithril coat a secret, which hints that Bilbo indeed knew it’s true value, and that it is something that must be kept safe. But, more importantly, there is also something so soft and intimate about how he talks about and holds the coat, which, to me, suggests there is a greater sentimental value to the object for Bilbo. It isn’t a mere tool to protect his nephew, but rather a precious memory from a time long ago.
I also suspect Bilbo may have figured out what Thorin may have been trying to say to Bilbo by giving him the mithril coat: that it was meant as a betrothal gift. Perhaps he’s kept it a secret, because he knows most people would not believe a simple hobbit is worthy of such “a kingly gift”. Gimli’s response to the coat certainly speaks volumes too:
“‘And all the arrows of all the hunters in the world would be in vain,’ said Gimli, gazing at the mail in wonder. ‘It is a mithril-coat. Mithril! I have never seen or heard tell of one so fair. Is this the coat Gandalf spoke of? Then he undervalued it. But it was well given!’” (The Fellowship of the Ring, Page 440, emphasis added in bold)
With all this, I’m once again tempted to write a fanfic about Bilbo’s mithril coat, Thorin gifting it to him, and how others view both the item and their relationship.

Notes: This one is pure crack, but it just sounded funny in my head...
“Thorin... Why are you in the dungeons?” Bilbo asked with a sigh.
“No reason.” Thorim grumbled.
Blibo narrowed his eyes. “Did you fight with Thranduil again?” He demanded.
There was a way too long pause. “No.”
“Were you drunk?”
Another pause. “Perhaps.”
“Bilbo.” A voice came from the left. “Be a dear and let me out as well.”
Bilbo’s eyes became round in shock. “Is that Thranduil?”
Thorin looked mighty embarrassed now. “We were fighting so Legolas locked both of us up.”

Five Fics For Long Time Tolkien Fic Readers
…I’m 99.9% sure you haven’t read at least one of these fics. Let’s do this.
Like A Long Forgotten Dream by Antarctica_or_bust
|| explicit - 16.3k - completed ||
Fíli and Kíli are actually Legolas' time-traveling love children from the future. This changes everything.
Notes: This fic is entirely crack treated seriously, and I adore it. Although I’m not totally sold on the ending the rest of it is just *chef’s kiss*. Btw gigolas and Aragorn/Legolas centric. Not a very heavy read but still really fun. Like I said, it’s crack.
A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes by diemarysues
|| general - 64.2k - completed ||
Bilbo Baggins has been plagued with dreams for some months, always filled with the same stranger: big hands, strong arms, dark hair. It seems a mystery until he figures that it is a Dwarf, though this only narrows down his search to every Dwarf in Erebor.
When he overhears mention of a special party in the Mountain he wishes briefly that he can attend. But that's ridiculous. He's a Hobbit, not a Dwarf.
Turns out that's not a problem when magic is involved.
Notes: I read this fic pretty recently and as the summary kind of says, it’s a Cinderella au. I adore this fic so much and was an instant bookmark. I’m pretty particular when it comes to bookmarking so yeahhhhh
Into the Woods by NameLess_FaceLess_FormLess
|| teen - 44.7k - completed ||
Two widowers stumble upon each other, one cursed with a mediocre life in a judgemental town, the other with an actual curse.
Notes: In my experience it’s hard to find really good fairytale au’s, especially Beauty and the Beast. Like, the goal is for the relationship to not be toxic right guys..? Still, this fic manages to blow me away every time I read it. This is a barduil fic and you may not be into that right now but I still recommend giving it a shot. Especially if you’re into thilbo, gigolas, and the like. It’s truly one of my favorites.
Rearrange by smilebackwards
|| general - 10.6k - completed ||
Prince Fili’s betrothal to the elf prince of Mirkwood causes Gimli many problems, not least of which, he’s beginning to strongly suspect that Legolas may be his One.
Notes: I just can’t with this fic, it hits you right in the feels and never stops. It’s so fluffy but like also angsty (like any good fic), and the endingggg. And Filiiiiii. I feel like a lot of authors struggle with writing dwarves, Fili and Kili specifically, because they’re not sure how far to take their childishness. For this environment I think Fili was done particularly well, even if it’s not how I would view him in other situations. Btw gigolas.
In June and June and More June by Dragonslaeyr
|| teen - 88.7k - completed ||
When Bilbo agreed on a trip to Erebor to clear up the last of his mother's estate, what he didn't count on was falling in love with its gorgeous landscape, the fiercely proud people, and yes, the delicious food. Now if only he could figure out why everyone was acting so strangely around his neighbours...
Notes: This is actually the fic that I’m reading right now (and loving, obviously), but I’m sold on it already so I didn’t want to have to wait to get this rec out to you. Also like, once I do this I’ve got nothing else I’ve gotta get done, so that’s epic. It’s thilbo centric and modern day au with secretive Thorin, and Smaug has already been taken care of so that’s not a second hand stresser. It’s just lovely overall with the way it present all of the company and Frerin is alive, which is always nice. And mini Fili and Kili. Bro I’m in so deep with this fic, but that’s how it goes ig, lmao.
That’s it for today! This rec was specific to those who are looking for fics that they haven’t already read. But ofc you would absolutely enjoy these fics even if you aren’t already in deep. After these fics you probably will be, tho.

Happy Hobbit Day!
(aka Bilbo and Frodo Baggins’ birthday)
My lovely friend, @swanfloatieknight, wrote an adorable fic, and I did this little recipe card and photo shoot for it.
The recipe card was inspired by the kinds of things my grandmother kept in her cookbook. Incomplete directions, blurred ingredients, and completely nonsensical measuring. I loved her so. And I’m sure we all have people like this.
Please go read the story and give him some love! And then go make the actual recipe here!

hearts of stars and wonder
a star wars au bagginshield fic by katheneverwrites/mandolinearts
chapter 5: deep in the transparent night
He did think about how strange it all seemed, how it may well have been the reason they had bounty hunters on their tail. But he also decided that, frankly, the galaxy is a big place with all sorts of people in it, and maybe some of them are simply strange. Dwarves are considered strange for their stone sense, yet that’s got nothing to do with magic and everything to do with having a good ear and a lot of practice.
Then Bilbo happened.
“Lobelia, can you shoot a moving cannon?” Bilbo yells as the ship sways. They are just barely escaping from the crossfire that has been unleashed after their semi-successful mission. There’s a swarm of TIEs on their tail, and they have to stay relatively low unless they want to risk going through the debris-filled cloud layer.
-> read it on ao3!
