Just read this in its entirety in one sitting.
What a lovely story. Dark and so painful and difficult to read at parts, but beautiful in its choice of wording. I nearly cried in Chapter 7, when Thorin referred to Fili as his son. I've been reading fanfiction for about a decade now, and I can count on one hand the stories that have brought me to tears. This is one of them. Well done.

Good story that, although I am afraid it will not end like this. -Kili
Oh, don't listen to him, the old baster, I sure we'll be fine. Even if we do die we will go to meet our fathers. I think we'd probably get into trouble even there :) -Fili

Loved it, as much as I love Fili I would rather this happened instead of that fate that has to come for Fili, Kili and Thorin.

This story was wonderful! There were so many parts when I felt tears forming! There are a lot of stories about Fili, Kili and Thorin that stem from Goblin Town, but this one was very unique and I love how you ended it. Well done!

WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT TO THEM?! I was crying like a crazy person! Thought it was well written but, I had too stop reading as I was crying soooo much...I would hate that if that happened to Kili...

Brilliant! Thanks so much for writing this little gem :)
Your writing is very crisp and descriptive. Each line is perfectly crafted to convey each character, emotion, and scene. Your Kili and Fili are bonded with each other, but each distinct and ready to be his own dwarf. I enjoyed the scene where Kili confessed that he had gone exploring in Rivendell. I also liked how you let glimpses of their childhood seep into the story, building in just enough backstory with the current story to really round out the brothers. I also liked how you slipped the other dwarves into the story, capturing their personalities with a few lines. Gloin getting ready to make a disturbance at the river and the protectiveness of Ori, Dori, and Nori to each other rang true to their characters. Oh, and before I forget, the moment where Thorin said a handful of his grandfather's gold was worth a life - perfect!
But back to the main part - I really liked how you were able to paint the portrait of Thorin's relationship with Fili even though they never really interacted in the story. And how you worked in his relationship with Kili. Heck, you even captured his relationship with Bilbo and Elrond and Gandalf. In the end, that is what I enjoyed the most: the interactions between all of the characters. It felt very real and it was an added bonus that some very special dwarves did not die at Erebor.

I fucking LOVE your story. Fili is my favorite character followed closely by Kili and Thorin, and when they all die in the end of Tolkein's novel it breaks my bloody heart. Your adaptations and combination of the book and movie are truly beautiful, and totally mesmerized me the entire way through. Kudos to you :D
| Germanic Spazz chapter 8 . 3/7/2013
Beautiful. Simply beautiful. You're writing has so much detail! So much emotion! And the angst! Oh gosh, I love angst fics, and I dont think I can get myself to read any more today because of this! I dont think anything else could match this! The characters were perfect and all in character! I felt like I was watching these scenes in the movie! And still a happy ending for our Royal dwarf family! Loved how you portrayed the emotions of both Kili and Thorin.
I want to say so much more, but I really have no idea what! I just absolutely love this and undoubtably will find myself rereading it many times over!
| WolfDarkfur chapter 8 . 3/3/2013
Great way of changing the story, happy ending! Yay! Love how you make the ending seem natural, it doesn't seem a forced change.
"All that stood between them now was one small dragon." great line/ending!

This story becomes more powerful each time I read it.
| Lunevis chapter 8 . 2/4/2013
I have to say, this story is absolutely amazing. The wonderfully written elements echo a mysterious air about the story, and you express every sentence so fully enriched that I can imagine it right in my head. The word choice was excellent! You have amazing writing skills. This story is a absolute masterpiece that made me love Kili and Fili all the more.
