Musings on Dwarves Can't Post

Apologies if this has all been said and done before, I am still fairly new, and just wanted to put these out there. These are just some things I've been thinking about as I review AUJ in my mind while listening to the soundtrack.

a) Dwarves make pretty good guests. Yes, they're boisterous and given to food fights, but the next morning Bilbo's house was back in order. Other than the empty pantry, you couldn't even tell that there had been 13 rambunctious dwarves there the night before. And even the empty pantry was fairly considerate, since they assumed Bilbo would be coming with them. You wouldn't want to come home after a year of adventures to a pantry full of rotting food.

b) Dwarves should never fight solo. When Thror fought Azog, essentially by himself, he lost his head. When Thorin went to avenge him, again he was on his own, and first thing got knocked down. Later, when Thorin takes on Azog by himself, Azog simply lets his warg maul him, and Thorin almost loses his head. Just to make it not all about Thorin, Kili attempted to take on three huge trolls by himself and found himself with a face full of hobbit.

c) Dwarves should always fight together. The best scenario would be 2-3 dwarves per enemy, particularly if the enemy is much larger. When fighting the trolls, they did a fair amount of damage. The only way the trolls got them to stop was by threatening the hobbit. When fighting goblins, they were hopelessly outnumbered, but still managed to make a good accounting of themselves by working together.

Thanks for reading. Discuss at leisure.

Lotr: You know it's been a bad day when even the elf is smudged.
TH: when the going gets tough, the tough call the eagles.
