This war had been something Sunhilde had seen when she was merely a child sitting in her father’s lap as he told her stories. She had asked him what the flames and the cries had meant and he had told her that she’d never have to worry about it. He claimed that she was seeing visions of a war that would happen long after her time. But her father was wrong, he had been wrong about many things. He had told her that he would return for her when she had been whisked away by Asgardian guards for her own safety. But he never did; he had died.
Thou art kind, and thou hast my thanks. I can ask no more than that.
Nonetheless, can I interest thee in a cinnamon roll? Or… Oh! Oh, Theoric! Thee would never guess, but I learned to make these things… Um… What are they called… [Thinks for a moment while bouncing on her toes] Oh! Aye! Beignets!
((Take them, take them all. You are Bilbo. They are yours. (But Kili you will have to share with Tauriel because he be obsessed with that elf—and they’ve only talked once).))
I swear, she’s like a Pokemaster with all these dwarves. Poke-dwarves. But yes, she can handle that one stipulation. All she wants is to love on them and feed them. They’re like children, but also hairy old men. (idk about her, she’s weird)
((Omg, everyone wants to adopt Alice. Thor, Sif, Sunni, Clint, etc etc. She’s just too much of a darling to resist. This is probs going to end up being a Demeter-Hades thing, huh? You get her half the year, I get her the other half. bwahaha. But Thor obvs gets first dibs because they’re besties (which means Sif semi-wins simply because Thor). pft.))
das cool, das cool. I see how it is, you win by association, I see.
Ah, then you have might a good few of us. [It was a fair surprise that she had not yet met Balin or Dwalin, even Bofur or Gloin, before Nori and Bifur.] Perhaps you will meet more of us soon enough. [Thorin nodded, though he was taken quite aback by her comment.] I am their King. Thorin Oakenshield, son of Thrain, son of Thror. I remember Thor, though it surprises me to hear that he spoke so highly of me.
I do hope so, I wish to meet all those in thy company. Ah, well, ‘tis quite the pleasure to meet their king. A quite a fine king thee seems to be. [Smiles, shaking her head] Oh no, please do not be surprised. When one such as thyself has made an impression on Thor, he will make such things known. Even despite whate’er transpired between the two of thee before.
