Sorry about the earworm! [In reply to] Can't Post

Though you did start it. ;)

That's an excellent point about Gandalf and puts paid to my quasi-theory. In the bit you've quoted, I do quite like the sense that Thorin and Gandalf are both fond of being the one to find out important things. We'd expect that of Thorin, but it humanizes Gandalf to see that he's not above the occasional display of ego or frustration, which is rather charming. And he does like making a show sometimes (the fireworks in the Shire).

And yes, you're right, this does tie back in to your earlier remarks about fate and luck.

Thank you for your kind statement at the end! I really appreciate that.
