Clip, clop, drip, drop.
Gandalf’s keen ears, trained from years and years of living in Middle Earth, picked each minuscule sound the fields beyond Beorn’s home had to offer. The hooves of their steeds knocking against stone and the passing of the morning dew off plants. The old wizard smiled to himself, pleased with how things were moving along smoothly for the time being. It would be a shame to leave them as he must do in a few day’s time. He was quite pleased with his own foresight though, watching Bilbo, Thorin and Balin discuss something – the hobbit and the dwarf king were getting along much better.
Sometimes I surprise myself with how well I can see the relationships of Middle Earth, potential or otherwise, Gandalf mused to himself.
Frankly though, the white haired wizard was wary. These dark tidings spreading across Middle Earth did not spell anything good. He rather hoped that the evil he felt would spare Thor

When Bilbo Baggins woke he couldn't help but feel as though he'd forgotten something.
He pulled himself upright on his sleeping mat, gazing thoughtfully at the high ceiling of Beorn's home. They had been there for a few days now, whilst Thorin was recovering his energy and healing from Azog's attack. Thinking on it more thoroughly though, all the dwarves needed a few days rest before they were ready to move on towards Erebor, Bilbo realised. But that still did not explain why Bilbo had this nagging feeling within his mind, something of great importance.
He sighed and got up, thinking that a cup of tea would do him nicely. He tiptoed out of the large den where the dwarves all lay snoring, slipping into the kitchen where Beorn sat at his large table eating a bowl of steaming stew. Bilbo offered the skin changer a weak smile, for a hobbit such as himself it was somewhat intimidating being alone with a man so large. And despite being what he was, Bilbo was qu

“For the love of Aulë will you stop fidgeting Kili!?” Fili snapped, his tone belied by his small smile. The heir to the throne was currently twisting his brother’s hair back into its customary braids. “Anyone would think that you were incapable of remaining seated in one place for an extended period of time”
“Well I did drive the elven guard to distraction when we were imprisoned in Thranduil’s dungeons” Kili mused, wincing when Fili gave the braid a warning tug. He chuckled at his own joke and allowed his brother to finish his hair. “I do like that Bombur’s throwing a feast to formally welcome Bilbo home”
“I quite agree with you, though I think a part of him will always be in the Shire” Fili said slowly, securing the braided hair with a silver clasp.
“But he has us” Kili said, a hint of a whine slipping into his voice.
“Ki, do you not feel a sense of b

Ori had never felt like this before. The ice cube of fear that had slipped through his body was no closer to melting, even as he watched Nori pace back and forth at the foot of Bofur’s bed. The curtains were drawn across the bed but the young scribe could still see Dori’s shadowy form as he bent over Bofur’s prone figure. The medical bay was filled almost to bursting with members of the Company, the only beings not present was Thorin and Balin who had left for an emergency meeting of the royal advisors.
The look on Nori’s face was none that Ori had ever seen before. Terror and sadness were flitting across Nori’s damp eyes and the master spy was paler than he’d ever been before, wringing his hands and pacing constantly about the medical wing. Bilbo had tried to offer some comfort to the ginger haired dwarf but had shied away when Nori had simply refused to speak and continued pacing. Ori wished he could do something

My utmost apologies for troubling you, but it appears you've been assigned a difficult mission. I am taking this time to remind you of our training. I have all of my faith in the fact you'll succeed, but you tend to let your guard down on your right side. Make sure to be aware of that. It wouldn't be beneficial to the team if something were to happen. Please excuse me, though, for speaking so forwardly. We all await your return.

I'm on my way back to Konoha as I write this. Your reminder about my dropped guard really helped on the mission. We were able to complete the mission sooner than we expected. I really appreciate the time you put into sparring with me. Thank you. I also want to say how much your note meant to me as well. We'll be back in a month—give or take the weather. Wishing to be home...
