Moments Between Waking by [personal profile] keelywolfe [The Hobbit; Bilbo/Thorin, adult]

This is part three of a series; if you haven't read the other two, they are pretty flawless. This one is also fantastic, and bonus points for a spot-on Balin cameo.

Most Jon/Sansa fics hinge on a Targaryen reveal, where they get married after Jon's true parentage is discovered and build a relationship while working through the weirdness from being raised as siblings. This takes it in a different direction; Jon and Sansa have been married a few years when they find out Jon is Ned Stark's bastard after all, and they have to decide how to move forward.

Feelings-wise, that first piece of Hobbit art is pretty rude, to the point that when I first saw it I screamed NOPE NOPE NOPE and tried to cover my monitor with my hands, despite how beautiful it is. I said on Tumblr last night that I don't think I'll live to see the third movie, because the fandom is going to kill me before time with a cleverly-deployed gifset about the heart and loyalty of Durin's sons, or whatever. I feel like that fanart has justified my predicitions, just bury me in black.

I know, I'm terribly behind the times. I've been waiting to make this post because I was supposed to see it again this afternoon, but my plans fell through, so. Review ahoy.

cut for nonsense )

In short, I loved it dearly. I can't wait for the other two movies, and I'm now slow-burning in my desire for PJ to get the rights to The Silmarillion. Even if they only did the exciting bits -- the creation, Fëanor and the Silmarils, the Fall of Gondolin, Thingol and Melian, Beren and Lúthien, the downfall of Númenor -- it would be about 12 hours worth of movie, and I'd still watch all of it.

The movie release has caused an uptick of Tolkien-related stuff on my dash, so I have some art recs for you.

Three Absolute Favorites:

Thorin, King Under the Bombur by [personal profile] humourlesspoppycock [Bofur, Bifur, Bombur, Thorin]

This is the dwarfpile I was denied in the movie. I have no regrets.

Oakenshield is just a toy to them by [personal profile] piiib [Thorin, Fíli, Kíli]

Allow me to do a bit more dork math here: At the start of the book, Thorin is 195, and his nephew's Fíli and Kíli are 82 and 77. He would've been about 40 in human years when they were toddlers, which has given me a soft spot for Thorin playing Grumpy Uncle to Fíli and Kíli as ridiculously adorable and round-faced dwarf children. TURNS OUT I AM ACTUALLY MADE OF MARSHMALLOW IN THE MIDDLE. WHO KNEW.

Durin Family by [personal profile] piiib [Thorin, Fíli, Kíli]

This is more Grumpy Uncle Thorin with Tiny Fíli and Tiny Kíli. SORRY I'M NOT SORRY.

I came out of the movie kind of shipping Bilbo/Thorin, which was really unexpected. I ship LotR characters all over the place (Frodo is my fandom bicycle, no regrets), but I never really went there with The Hobbit, I think because I read it so young. I kind of want to search AO3 for fanfic, but I'm afraid it will hurt me in the childhood.
