Writing comments in English is not my forte but I’ve been doing so much fav and run lately that with this story being so good I feel I have to give it justice (and at the same time also to the one mentioned here as I’ve read it too… just well, yeah fav & run). I really enjoyed it. Reading through it was a nice way to spend some time as you were able to conduct your story carefully, at good peace and, what is important for me, in logical way. You play characters good, and this is something when you are trying to give a lesson to Thorin xD I’ve read a lot of fics to Hobbit in past few weeks and came to conclusion that this often ends overly sweet. But well… not here. Whole plot in your story is strong. Pace is great and you managed to keep me interested through the whole time and ending was just as a cherry on a top. Serious and funny at the same time. I really like how you showed misunderstandings between Thorin and Kili, between not their thoughts but as you went deeper to their whole ways of thinking (and I love your view of what is going on in Kili's head in both mentioned fics). 3
Thank you for this story. I think I will re-read it soon. Not once, not twice… probably more :)

Wow! That was amazing! I really loved Thorin at the end, and it may be the fact that it is three in the morning but I both laughed, cried, and grinned like an idiot during his little talks. One of the best stories I've read in a long time!

Wonderful character development in this story, and I can't help the feeling, the giddy and appreciative feeling, that as the goblin adventure winds down, the real story begins. I really like your wild, inventive Kili who is smarter than his reputation suggests. I love how minutely you track the relationships! And how you show how the princes have their reputations and why it isnt wholly unreasonable or unexpected.. I loved seeing how Bofur tends to Thorin, spelling out the hopeful signs, when the King seems to be in shock or paralyzed. The interaction between Thorin and Fili was brilliant. It seemed like we were seeing the relationship evolve and deepen real time as Thorin confronted this new evidence of Fili's intelligence and maturity. Even as Thorin wades through guilt for not protecting his nephews and shoulders utter responsibility (as if they were not competent to make choices and hold responsibility), Fili is demonstrating and even- hearted rationality-traits that will serve well and speak to the good job that Thorin has done as a mentor.I love that you write the princes as intelligent young men whose hijinks are both blessing and curse, for their flaws are also theirstrengths as well. I think many writers rush to make them proto merry and pippin idiot characters when the movie shows young men with skill and promise and vulnerability mixed. I also liked how you showed the brothers building a place in the community with their storytelling. No longer eager dwarfling audiences only, they have begun to carve their own place in their community consciousness it seems. My favorite lines were Thorin's creaking stand and the hesitant affection that turned from that hair ruffle of a father to that firm shoulder clasp of a peer. You pack so much about Thorin getting older, about his relationship with his sucessors and his adjusting to their evolving relationship into that small space. Its beautiful writing-thanks for sharing it.

I am loving this story and will be sad to see it end. Not sure why they couldnt carry some of the deer home though!

The story is exciting, and I like how you've balanced action and character development. I especially like the amount of clearly written detail has gone into the hunt as the brothers decide between snares and deer and then Kili creates an intelligent, detailed strategy. And you show us the complication re:speed, tired ponies, time and distance. Details make the story feel more real and immersive. The thought of FIli being killed or maimed is aversive, though some danger and trouble iss exciting. There are a few Durins get captured and tortured stories and even the pnes aiming to literary can be so depressing ad grueling.
So far though this story is intelligent, and tense. I read it eagerly.
Aidan Turner's hair is beautiful like the rest of him.:)

Great stories. I've read everything on the Hobbit here that you've written.
Keep up the great work!

This has to be one of the best Fili&Kili fanfics ever !
You explained the characters thoughts and motivations so clearly . And Thorin , is just like one would emagine him, gruff , stern but still very concerned and caring for his nephews .
Loved the part where Kili strategieses !
( I believe one fanfic author described him (and fili ) as trouble making masterminds , we all knew that all those deveous pranks on Thorin were part of a bigger picture ! )
And THANK YOU for putting in that part where Fili doubts whether he could withstand torture . In most of the fanfics I've read that have " Fili and Kili torture" , they make them out to be all brave ( they still cry out in pain and all that , but that's inevitable "duh" ) hardly ever doubting that they'll talk , let me refrase that ... Of course they write that which ever one is being tortured is afraid of talking , but the authors seem to pass it off and get down to writing the vivid details of torture. Incinuating that it's not that important .
( note. I have nothing against the torture , in fact I love it ! Who doesn't ! Poor Fili and Kili :'( )
Anyhow just thought I'd write a few sentences !
" voice inside my head screams liar ! at the top of its lungs "
Your an amazing writer and I can't wait to read more of your story's !
I'll shut up now .

That was so good...
" I would not have their love and loyalty be the cause of their deaths." If Thorin only knew... Having read the book and knowing how it ends, that sentence from Thorin broke my heart. You managed to make me cry with that one and that usually is not an easy feat.
Your page is officially in my favorites from now on and I'll keep an eye open (as in I-visit-my-favorites-twice-a-day-to-make-sure-I-do n't-miss-anything) for any new stories or updates from you! I read all your Hobbit stories this evening in one go and I'm still insatible for more.

"Bringing the deer into his sights, he aimed just a bit low to allow for the wary creature's tendency to crouch at the first sign of alarm before springing away."
Wow... You did your homework for sure. My dad hunts and he told me about that detail on a few occasions.
This is getting seriously enthralling!
