Desolation of Smaug Countdown | 6. Of Dís
The day of the Dwarves’ return should have been one of celebration, of joyous singing and feasting. Too few of them returned. Moria was lost. Many had died. Her world was shattered. Dís could not fathom the loss of her grandfather, her father, her brother. But to lose her One, especially when her children were still so young, was unimaginable.
In the beginning, after the Battle of Azanulbizar, Dís relied very heavily upon her brother. Thorin loved the boys as his own, he always had, but he looked at them differently now. Dís understood. Fíli’s golden hair reminded her so much of Frerin. Kíli’s glittering eyes were the same as his father’s. They were all she had left of the people she loved.
And so, when Thorin begins to speak of reclaiming Erebor, Dís fights. She sees the gleam in her sons’ eyes, she knows they will want to join him. Not her sons. She cannot lose them, too. Against her wishes, Thorin allows them to come. They look so happy the day they leave Ered Luin. They promise they will return for her. Then they are gone.
A girl is asking her mother for tickets to the hobbit. She tells her mother that Benedict Cumberbatch is in it. Her mother reload by saying “oh, right, I read he does the voice for the dragon” then slowly Benedict appears in the air in front of them. He has been summoned.

at my wedding, I want 9 people dressed up as the members of the fellowship of the ring to attend and halfway through the vows they stand up and start arguing until the one dressed up as Frodo shouts “I will do it, I will take the ring to the bride!”
then it just falls silent as he slowly brings me the Ring of Power
There is no King Under the Mountain, nor will there ever be!
the Elves; immortal, wisest and fairest of all beings.
