It would make sense though... [In reply to] Can't Post

She would've been married at some point, and wouldn't Thorin's brother-in-law be an important person? And why would he have let his sons go on this quest alone when they're so young? I think if their father was still alive then he would've gone on the quest instead of Fili and Kili. After all, Gimli was told he couldn't go on the quest for exactly this reason. He was only 60 at the time, but Fili and Kili are 82/77 respectively, hardly much older, so it seems like Thorin didn't really have a choice.






In Reply To
RA has stated in interviews that Thorin knows Fili/Kili's father is dead...though this could just be part of his character work rather than canon.

Even though [In reply to] Can't Post

I wrote a fanfic, which was a script style "ending", that featured Dis, I highly doubt we'll ever see her. I'm sure we won't even get a name. She was nothing more than "Kili and Fili's mother" in the book, and she'll probably be the same in the movie. Unsure

I read [In reply to] Can't Post

...the most heartbreaking fic featuring Dis after Kili and Fili's deaths. I sobbed like a baby.

I agree completely. [In reply to] Can't Post

If Dis' husband were still alive at the time of the quest, he would have gone, and if Fili and Kili had gone as well, that would have been a secondary decision and Dis would probably have had a lot to say about that.
