Answers, I got answers... [In reply to] Can't Post

They're not good answers, but, well, here goes...

1. What is Bilbo keeping wrapped in an old bundle of tattered oddments that he used as a pillow?
The Ark of the Covenant, which Indy thought he had successfully lost in a maze of government storage and bureaucracy... oh, oops, wrong Arky-thingie. So I'll go with that Arkenstone that Thorin wants.

2. When he makes his escape, how does Bilbo get down from (and later, back up) the top of the wall at the Gate?
He uses magic elven rope, given to him by the Lady Galadriel herself... oh, oops, wrong hobbit. In that case, I'll say he calls out, "Thorin, Thorin, let down your hair!" and clambers down and up on those wavy locks. Without Thorin knowing about it... somehow...

3. Some two hours after he escapes the Gate, Bilbo is sitting beside a warm fire in front of a large tent. With whom is he sitting?
Hermione Granger, who is grumping about Ron Weasley being gone... oh, oops, wrong tent. I'll guess that he's sitting with Thorin's hairdresser, who has made the whole journey with the rest of the hidden entourage of support staff who help keep all the dwarves looking their rough 'n ready best. Or Gandalf.

4. When hes sitting beside the fire discussing the situation with the person(s) identified in #3 above, what is the first thing that Bilbo pulls out of the pocket of his old jacket?
The Ring! or the Arkenstone! Oh, wait, I actually stand a slim chance of being right on one of those... So I'll go with a length of duct tape, two safety pins and an old gum wrapper, which MacGyv- er - Thorin used to build an ingenious winching device for getting their supplies up the Lonely Mountain.

5. The chapter closes with Bilbo asleep and dreaming. Of what does he dream?
A White Christmas! and for the one he loves to find him. Not necessarily in that order. That, or he's having the one in which he has Thorin's hair... again...Tongue
