    Summary

    Rick snorts. “They’re not that bad.”

    Wordlessly, Evy looks back over at Jonathan and Ardeth.

    “If you think about it, I'm doing them a favour. Jewellery never looks quite right on dead people,” Jonathan is saying, flicking his wrist in comic disdain. A drop of whisky lurches forcefully from his glass and lands on Ardeth’s thigh, and Jonathan leans forward to pat it dry with his jacket sleeve. “Terribly sorry, old boy. I get a bit animated after a finger or two of the good stuff.”

    Ardeth’s eyes are very, very wide indeed.

    “Jesus, you’re right,” says Rick. 

    After 20 years of being subjected to more yearning than any sister should ever have to witness, Evy decides that enough's enough.

    Summary

    Mr Brandy was nervous. This, in and of itself, was not entirely unusual; Mr Brandy had something of a reputation for being nervous, both with and without cause, and frequently at dinner parties. If asked, he would have said it was something to do with the cravat, it being worn rather close to the chin and not permitting much room to breathe, but of course, it would not be polite to ask, and so he was seldom asked. He was slightly disheartened by this, having worked rather hard on the cravat excuse, and being rather keen to trot it out.

    It was perhaps somewhat unusual, then, given the aforementioned case of nerves, that Mr Brandy should also be the reigning Smooch Champion in all of Bath. Yet he was, and the silver trophy stood at the forefront of his escritoire to prove it.

    Or: I was complaining about how lots of language about kissing sounds like a competition, and someone said 'but what if it IS a competition', and... this happened.

    Summary

    Gilly Underhill spent decades being Belladonna's friend. Now that Belladonna's dead, Gilly keeps an eye on her son, and Gilly thinks that Belladonna would agree that sometimes keeping an eye on someone means sending a dwarf or twelve their way. (Or, Belladonna Took's best friend watches Bilbo go there and then watches him come back again.)

    Summary

    The Company of Thorin Oakenshield survives the Battle of Five Armies, but not without a cost. Thorin lies unconscious, Fíli is struggling with his injuries and the burden of playing Regent, and Ori may have taken on more than he can handle, while others are all dealing with their own pains and fears and secrets. It's not only dwarves in the mountain, of course, not after the battles they have fought, and Bilbo and Tauriel are struggling to find their place in the middle of dwarves with all their secrets and traditions and surprises.

    It might seem overly important in the moment to find out who wears a particular braid or what gender they happen to be, yet in the end only a few things remain. As long as you know your family, your love, and your king, everything else will sort itself out.

    If it seems like you might be the king... well. Then there may be another thing or two you need to concern yourself with.
