Thanks!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

No, I didn't see it like this when I first read the Hobbit. Of course I empathized with Bilbo, as we were meant to. I don't think that I was very seriously considering the ethical ramifications of the story on more than a superficial level. I usually have a quite cheery optimistic and romantic mind.

The process for writing this was an exercise in inversion and exaggeration. I have a rather macabre, morbid , and cynical side as well, the part if me that enjoys gallows humor, and this let that piece of me out to play. Really, I was in a mood when I wrote this, and it was a quite cathartic experience. It allowed me to get out my frustration, and have a bit of fun, so that I could focus on my children's story, and do so in the right frame of mind.
