Good day! I am Balin, son of Fundin. Depending on the continuity to which I am currently restricting myself, I am either one of Thorin Oakenshield's thirteen companions on his quest to reclaim the throne of his fathers under the Lonely Mountain, or Lord of Moria. Or dead.

((This blog does not care about continuity or the fourth wall. Bite me.))

“Is that THE Mountain?” asked Bilbo in a solemn voice, looking at it with round eyes. He had never seen a thing that looked so big before.“Of course not!” said Balin. “That is only the beginning of the Misty Mountains, and we have got to get through, or over, or under those somehow, before we can come into Wilderland beyond, And it is a deal of a way even from the other side of them to the Lonely Mountain in the East where Smaug lies on our treasure.”“O!” said Bilbo, and just at that moment he felt more tired than he ever remembered feeling before. He was thinking once again of his comfortable chair before the fire in his favorite sitting room in his hobbit-hole, and of the kettle singing. Not for the last time!Excerpt from “The Hobbit: Chapter III, A Short Rest

Bilbo must have thought about his hobbit-hope for at least 29184 in the book.

Yes, well, I do suppose I intend to die with a disapproving scowl on my face.

Oh come now Balin. ;) You’re my favourite too. 

I… do you need something from me, Gloin?

And the stoneface clearly accused me of being a “muh favrit,” what-ever that means. 

I need nothing from you Balin, ‘twas merely a compliment. You do make me laugh.

However unintentionally at times, dear Gloin!

I do not know what that means but I suspect it might stem from a gross misunderstanding.

Thank you, anon.

SEE KILI I TOLD YOU!

Are you sure you didn’t send this grey-face to yourself, brother? ;)

You are very sexy. But I still won’t say that you are the sexier one. I mean, look at me!

Psh, no. I would never do such a thing.

Look at you? Look at me! Everyone knows blonds are hotter, brother.

 

You are both so precious.

ask-galion replied to your post: Ah, hello there master Dwarf. I have recently joined this ‘Tumblr’ and saw that you were also here. I felt it only right to apologise for your imprisonment and to ask how you have been doing since I unknowingly aided your escape.

Oh, how marvelous! I am sure it is a fine Dwarven realm and I would surely visit (if allowed) if I thought my dear Elvenking would not fall apart without my help. I have been doing splendidly, thank you. The wine is still particularly delicious here.

So I have heard!  I dimly recall promising to visit, once preparations were completed here.  Perhaps, with your lord’s permission…

We would welcome you with open arms, I am certain! Things are going to be rather hectic around here for a couple of weeks at the very least, for our beloved prince and the former king of Greenwood are returning home. I have given myself the duty of making sure everything is perfect for their arrival.

But by all means, come and visit! I promise you it will not be like your last experience, and you will not have to escape through empty barrels to get home. (genius plan, I might add! We simply could not believe it when we got word back from the Raft-Elves at Laketown that you had escaped in such a way! Pure genius.)

That is splendid news!

Oh, it was hardly my plan, but credit must be given to the clever Halfling that concocted it.

Oh!  An apology is not necessary, master Elf, but I thank you for it regardless.  I have been doing quite well; we have finally finished redecorating the Dwarrowdelf.  How have you been doing?

They are not so much taller.  We usually manage.
