have to go for a bit but ill be back later ;D
Status update: I just sobbed for half an hour over emilianadarling's latest fic and now there are literal tear stains all over my French homework.
That is all.
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG
EMILIANA FINALLY POSTED HER FIC
GONNA GO READ IT NOW AND YOU ALL SHOULD TOO BECAUSE HOLY FUCK SHE IS AN AMAZING WRITER AND IM SURE MY HEART IS GONNA DIE READING IT AND IT WILL BE AWESOME
Regarding the question about terms to use instead of 'lesbian relationship', I personally tend to go for a plain and simple 'relationship between two women'. :3 My across the street neighbours are two women in a relationship but only one of them is a lesbian, and that's the term they generally use. It's close to my heart as a bisexual girl (because people telling me I'm in a 'heterosexual relationship' always irks me), but it's also tricky language-wise. So please don't worry about the slip-up!
Thank so much!! I also got ‘same-sex’ couple as a good term, so now at least I’m more educated on how to correctly state these things :D
And thanks for being so sweet (like always~<3) because I was actually super worried I did offend anyone :) SO YAY FOR LEARNING I SUPPOSE :D
Okay so it’s probably an indicator of how much i care about the 8 exams I have this week that im sitting in bed writing musketeers fanfiction cause I’ve just finished reading all the hurt!d’artagnan fics there are on ao3 and fanfiction.net
if you’ve read all the hurt!d’art ones then you’ve probably read all mine XD I can’t stop whumping him. the poor boy. he’s such an easy target
i should probably not point out that I’m currently writing a fic where d’Artagnan was bullied in gascon, right?
Is that the one for the kinkmeme prompt? because if it is I keep checking obsessively for when it’s updated
This show has ruined me. seriously.
IT IS OMG im writing the next part as we speak ahahaha
life goes on, though- thorin getting more and more intrigued by bilbo with every visit he pays bungo (and if suddenly he needs much more advice than normal, well, he’s a prince, he can do what he wants)
and maybe thorin’s eyes start opening just a tad to his grandfather’s insane work ethics- maybe he tries to get him to raise wages and decrease hours and such, but his grandfather is, of course, angry with him for the very idea.
which causes even more tension, and makes thorin even grumpier
but mister baggins always makes thorin feel lighter- and oh, it’s not what they discuss, because for what little conversation they share, it always tends to arrive on harsh and argumentative subjects, thorin showing the durin stubbornness and bilbo proudly utilizing his biting wit.
(they once got into a discussion on how even the air was displeasurable for bilbo.
thorin was incredulous at best.
bilbo had huffed and said haughtily, “the general feeling of a city can really affect how one feels nature! even the air is difficult to endure in erebor, i fear”
thorin’s quiet mutter of, “your insistence on finding issue with everything is difficult to endure" did not go unheard judging by bilbo’s affronted face.)
they had reached an impasse, thorin had thought- a rapport of sorts. he’d even go so far as to say that bilbo was quite fond of him.
unfortunately for him, bilbo was getting closer and closer with bofur and other miners suffering the conditions of the mines.
and it was not leaving thorin in very good standing with him, not at all.
AND DRAMATIC ENTRANCE STAGE LEFT: AZOOOOG
azog, the horrible competition who is trying to stir up trouble for thrain and erebor by egging on the miners to strike and go for violence.
and on one of those fateful days, when the workers decide that they’d rather go on strike…
bilbo needs to visit erebor to give thorin some papers bungo had looked over.
ok so i cant find the original post anymore but
helene mentioned a thilbo/north and south au and i just
a younger bilbo who is more prone to speaking his mind, quicker with a snippy reply than he ought to be, and less prudent than he should be
a smart and brave and kind bilbo who is forced to leave the shire (maybe because of his mother, maybe because of his mother’s death, maybe because of gandalf, idk), and it’s just him and his father, traveling to the city of dale (one of the few places he managed to secure employment- perhaps as a gentlehobbit, he was well-versed in numbers and got work under Bard as an accountant, or scholar, or advisor, idk).
ANYWAY, bilbo is just very new to this life, where everything is very fast-paced and the people aren’t all that polite and there’s just such a different culture here.
the shire hardly even has poverty, is the thing. it’s bright and sunny and everyone knows everyone, so there’s never any crime, and honestly the worst thing you’d expect in the shire is a rude relative stealing a spoon or two.
and for bilbo to show up in dale, trade and industry central, where there’s bustling markets and hagglers and the typical seedy underbelly that is common for any large city- well, bilbo is appalled.
and then- well, dale has close relations with erebor, of course. and, actually, this is where i like the idea of bungo being an accountant because he joins bard for meetings with the royalty of the lonely mountain, and his suggestions are a bit… different.
bungo starts to make a name for himself in erebor as the advisor who is a bit fussy, yes, but very soft-spoken and intelligent. thorin takes an instant liking to him, appreciating his insight and honesty on diplomatic issues but also liking how bungo automatically defers when thorin wants a subject to be dropped (plus, an outside perspective is always wanted)
and so one day, thorin is in dale on business and looking to be aided with some trade negotiations that he’s thinking of undertaking with Mirkwood, so he pops by the Baggins residence.
bilbo opens the door, very proper, waistcoat on and vest ironed, smiling bashfully when met with thorin’s very rich robes and plentiful jewelry.
and thorin is a bit confused by bilbo, who is so very bright and kind and fussy (a bit like his father), but so very lovely, as well. bilbo treats thorin with the utmost politeness, but he also- well, it’s difficult for thorin to explain, but it almost seems as if bilbo is judging him
and found him wanting, in some respects.
the way in which bilbo scrunches up his nose at thorin’s idea of diplomacy is none too subtle, for one.
and the thing is- yeah, bilbo is most certainly unimpressed with thorin. he may be prince under some cold mountain, and he might cut a ruggedly handsome figure, but he is in no way a kind or gentlemanly man, not like they were in the shire.
his trade ideas were horrendous! he wanted to create a trading agreement with the elves that was so disadvantageous to them, it’d be practically stealing!
no real gentleman would ever do something like that, oh no. after all, everyone knows that elves are a kind and generous folk- clearly, it is thorin who is in the wrong.
so lo and behold, the worst of the first impressions
so then, so then, OMG
so bilbo tries to find something to occupy his time, and since he’s a writer and naturally curious about new things, he figures- why not look into the industry of the place?
and what more important industry is there aside from the jewels?
so bilbo start looking into things, maybe meets Ori when he goes to the library in erebor. but most importantly-
bilbo meets bifur. bifur, who has a permanent brain injury from working in the mines, because the work is long for little pay and sometimes people are so tired they fall asleep on the job, and like bifur, some might fall down the shafts and land on their heads. (and because thrain might still be a little gold-hungry in this verse, more uncaring about sharing the profits and focused entirely on finding the newest veins of mithril and silver in mines below the mountain).
and bilbo is just- he’s horrified, ok? this isn’t how work is done in the shire- the shire where his gardner was his closest friend, where fair pay and fair working hours are an expectation and not a desire.
and so through bifur, bilbo meets bofur- who appreciates bilbo’s kindness towards bifur, and the way he never treats bifur as less-than simply because of his injury. and bofur is all smiles and sweet gestures, and sure, they’re a barely-working class family, but bilbo hardly cares about that kind of stuff when it’s clear he’s made two friends in what he considers a desolate and cold place.
AND THORIN, OMG, THORIN.
the poor sod is a bit taken with bilbo, especially given his tendency to mouth off.
dinner with the royal family of Dale and Erebor? a disaster, for example.
"and how do you like the East, Mister Baggins?" bard asks him, politely bland smile in place. bilbo likes the man well-enough, but he seems inordinately grim most of the time, and so bilbo is surprised enough by the smile (however weak the attempt) to answer honestly.
"i find it a bit cold," he says. thorin, of course, immediately turns his attention to him (not that bilbo hadn’t had it the entire time anyway- thorin is good at dividing his attention).
"cold?" thorin eyes him, a quirk to his lips as if wanting to share in the joke.
bilbo flushes a bit, and he can feel his father dig his fork into his leg, but bilbo is nothing if not honest.
"is it warmer in the shire, mister boggins?" kili asks, the happy boy grinning up at him without a care.
bilbo is about to play along, act as if his words were in relation to the weather, but dis, thorin’s sister (who bilbo thinks doesn’t quite like him, either) interrupts him.
"I think mister baggins is referring to the people, the atmosphere, instead of the climate, kili.”
and there’s a hint of a challenge in her eyes, and gods if it weren’t for bilbo being so impulsive, he might’ve kept his mouth shut
"I was," he says clearly. "i find it hard to adjust here, i must admit. And perhaps it might be through my own comfortable living, but I can’t seem to find it agreeable to be among people who work day and night and barely make enough to keep themselves alive; such as the miners, who, might I add, work in the most profitable of businesses.”
and it’s deathly quiet for a moment, because bilbo just insulted dale’s primary trading partners by calling them slave drivers, essentially, and he just insulted royalty by calling them slave drivers, and it’s just. so. damn. awkward.
it’s thorin who ends the quiet by saying, “well, I do apologize, mister baggins, for erebor not passing muster to your need for comforts”
but bilbo- ooooh, bilbo is not to be outdone, and so he stares thorin right in the eyes and raises his chin just like his mother was wont to do, and replies, “yes, well, I suppose one can’t expect fairness and equal treatment in places where they’d be considered comforts in the first place.”
"Science Jane will rip the steering wheel right out from under you and head straight for the center of that vortex of death."
Science Jane <3 <3 <3 *sob sob sob sob sob*
