    Summary

    “To let someone else braid you is an intimacy. Brothers often do it for one another, or parents in our youth, or lovers when we are of age. I have none of these.” Thorin pulled a silver bead from the pouch and rolled it between his fingers, and his gaze on Bilbo held weight.

    Summary

    Bilbo is appropriately surprised the first time Thorin sits down next to him by the fire, but as time passes it becomes a habit for them.

While not being entirely aware of it themselves, their relationship slowly but steadily changes.

    Summary

    Balin blinks, shifting backwards. “Laddie, it’s—it’s been a year. Bilbo has returned home, to the Shire.” He looks at Thorin, then says more gently, “I did not realize you counted the hobbit among your treasures.”
