…but two can stick together. That’s how it is.
That’s how it is.
Possibly for Durin’s Day AU, where Thorin dies, but his nephews live. Fíli is now Erebor’s King, though Balin still acts as Minister, and Glóin as secretary of state until his coming naming (and Crowning) day, when it will all be official. The brothers don’t escape with their lives unscathed: Fíli loses his ability to speak from having his head nearly sliced off his shoulders at the neck, so he communicates in Iglishmêk. He grows his chin-hairs and dresses them the way Thorin did, and has the sides of his face tattooed in memory of his uncle.
Kíli loses an eye, which gives his profile a more mature look, reminiscent of his grandfather, Thrain. He remains the best shot of all of Erebor. He now wears warrior’s braids, but keeps his beard spare, “kissing the arrow” being the key point of his skill. He is not ashamed of it as he did in his youth; this technique was how he managed to save his brother’s life, putting an arrow through the orc that would have cleaved Fíli’s head from his body, at an impossible distance. Instead, he gets his chin tattooed in honour of the Battle of the Five Armies. When he smiles, those who remember think they see Frerin flickering briefly into view.
When they say “The King of New Erebor”, people see Fíli—broad-shouldered, steady, eyes watchful and unwavering. When they hear the King speak, it is through his brother, who is now his voice, and when Kíli speaks, the whole mountain trembles, because he never speaks for himself these days.
He speaks for the king. And the king speaks to nobody else.
