While I adored the update, I am sorry about your bad news. I hope everything is okay, or turns out to be. That said, this really was a sweet and warm update. I liked seeing Kili's thoughts, and his realizations about Hilda were equally sweet to read. I like seeing the burgeoning friendship between them, and I am glad she could help care for him. Once again, I look forward to the mystery with Thorin being solved, as well. This was another excellent update, and I look forward to when you can post more.
