    Summary

    Things have been building between Steve and Tony for a while, but after a battle where Tony is injured, they come to a head in an unexpected way. Was originally envisioned as a post-credits scene for Age of Ultron, but probably won't end up fitting the movie well, so feel free to envision it differently.

    Summary

    Circumstances had not allowed him time to address his failures as both King and friend to the Hobbit that had been as stalwart and courageous as any dwarf who’d ever stood by him. Without the chance to speak his apologies to the burglar in life, Thorin had settled for carving them into the casket itself; the Khuzdul runes pressing forever into Bilbo’s small back as if to write his penitence onto the Hobbit’s very bones in death. It feels like a hopeless gesture, however sincere it had been; after all, what use at all were words carved in stone to the dead?

     

    Bilbo dies in the Battle of Five Armies. The Durin's live. All the regret in the world won't keep the dead resting peacefully though, as Thorin is soon to learn.

    Summary

    We are each of us but a tiny moment, and then we are gone. Until then, you mustn't stand still—You must learn to move in this world, else you will be nothing but a stone in the next, and the stars will rush past you.
