Five minutes later... by ancalinar Five minutes later... by ancalinar
First time Fili and Kili meet their uncle. Most kids act shy around adults, so I figured the brothers would behave in a similar way when they first see Thorin.

...given their rambunctious personalities as adults, I figured this bashfulness wouldn't last long.

Same thing on tumblr, if you'd like to reblog.




Who's the figure standing to the left in the first panel?

        Dís, mother of Fili and Kili and younger sister of Thorin.

Why does she have a beard?

        This quote from The War of the Jewels should help:

"For the Naugrim have beards from the beginning of their lives, male and female alike; nor indeed can their womenkind be discerned by those of other race, be it in feature or in gait or in voice, nor in any wise save this: that they go not to war, and seldom save at direst need issue from their deep bowers and halls. It is said, also, that their womenkind are few, and that save their kings and chieftains few Dwarves ever wed; wherefore their race multiplied slowly and now is dwindling."

Even you say that is Fili's and Kili's mother I don't believe you. She hasn't any breast. I understand the beard, but there's not breast?

I think there will be very many flat-chested human females that would be very sad to be considered not female because they are flat. :b

I can definitely see that happening.

...and it makes me think that long, elaborately braided beards would prove a tempting target for grabby baby dwarves. Dís probably thinks she's done Thorin a great service waiting long enough that the kids have leant not to chew on other peoples hair.

Hah! That's an interesting observation - you're absolutely correct, babies seem especially attracted towards yanking on anything that would be dangerous to pull or just plain painful be pulled. Earrings, hair, glasses... It's always something like that. :b

It's adorable! I like the transition between two scenes - Fili and Kili acting shy and smiling Thorin (who doesn't know what it coming :D) and then, after breaking the ice two of them playing with dear uncle.

I like your style and the coloring. :)
