It took about six or seven times of watching "The Hobbit - An Unexpected Journey" for me to finally cave and start writing again. Bad
movie! And I still can't say where the idea came from, it was just floating around my head one day at work and, well, it wouldn't take
"no" for an answer.
First of all, I would like to mention that I don't do unhappy endings. I do Angst, and lots of it, but sad endings need not apply.
Also, considering the Creation of the Dwarves and the fact that Thorin mentions the "Halls of Waiting" on his deathbed, I believe that
dwarves like elves are linked to the world and as such are able to journey to Valinor (only they tend to do it after they die). I also
believe that if Námo can have his Halls, so can Aulë. And because the Valar would be somewhat racist towards the hobbits otherwise,
our dearest halflings also have a chance at seeing the Undying Lands...if their deeds were great enough (by hobbit standards) or they
are involved in some Valar-plot, eh, I mean, plan. The Valar do not do plots.
After the death of Thorin Oakenshield and his nephews, Bilbo returned to the Shire to live a quiet life, secretly mourning what he lost
in the Battle of the Five Armies. The journey to Valinor promises to finally give him peace before he will rest forever. But sometimes
things aren't as hopeless as they seem and there might be a happy end for the old hobbit after all.
