Well, seeing as how it's Thorin that says Fili is younger... [In reply to] Can't Post

I just assume that he mixed up his nephews again. Tongue If you believe that, it means his mix-up of Fili and Kili during the stone giants scene has textual basis.

"I had forgotten that. It is hard to be sure of anything among so many marvels. The world is all grown strange. Elf and Dwarf in company walk in our daily fields; and folk speak with the Lady of the Wood and yet live; and the Sword comes back to war that was broken in the long ages ere the fathers of our fathers rode into the Mark! How shall a man judge what to do in such times?"

"As he ever has judged. Good and ill have not changed since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is a man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house."
