"i'm lovin' this!" [In reply to] Can't Post

I fixed your link to Twit's post, sador - thank you for the recollection of that awesome thread!

I had pondered back then whether the Arkenstone had some sentience, which would indeed make it the "Ring" of this story. But it is a mere stone, albeit of brilliant quality. Still, I do like the romance of Smaug having lain atop the Arkenstone for long, creating that "hole" when he changed his position on the mound. Poetic justice, one might say.

But I think this object has no "religious" significance, as I'm not sure what "religion" the dwarves would have. Certainly though it has great cultural importance, and is the emblem of Thorin's lost kingdom, and therefore of value beyond all other treasure to him.

Now my question is, if the Arkenstone seems to shine with a light of its own, then why isn't it shining a bit through Bilbo's pocket, thereby giving away its presence...
