Hearken ye back to a time when I started first posting bits of Hobbit AU fic. This is the last part of chapter one of For Want of an Arrow, the first bits of which can be found HERE and HERE.

So far we've had pov from Tauriel and let's wander over and see what Thorin is seeing on Ravenhill, shall we? )

For want of an arrow...

These two scenes follow the one I posted two weeks back, a continuation of the divergent events that open this AU. (That is, Legolas puts a couple of arrows into Bolg that in the canon storyline went into orcs attacking Thorin, and left his post to aid Tauriel a minute or two earlier.)

As is typical with UFFs, this hasn't been beta's yet, so C&C on both plot & grammar would be accepted with good grace.

To be fair, it hadn't been a full hundred goblins attacking; the real number was closer to fifty or sixty. Dwalin remembers thinking that if it was fifty or sixty <i>orcs,</i> with only Thorin at his side, he would have been concerned – worried, even – but that mercenaries of such a pitiful caliber could be taken out by a single blow from his axe. He'd been amused at the time. )

I'm pretty sure that in the extended edition of Five Armies we're going to to see cut scenes of Dwalin fighting Azog and disarming him of that mace before being thrown over the side of Ravenhill. It would explain why Azog didn't have the mace and had to use a scavenged weapon during his fight with Thorin, and why we didn't see Dwalin anywhere during that fight or after Bilbo woke up: Dwalin was climbing back up the side of the mountain during Thorin and Azog's face-off. The above scenes paraphrase THAT theory of events.

For want of an arrow...

a Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies AU.

Description: Legolas picked a different target, and we got a whole new world. Kili tries to rebuild his life while dealing with grief and politics; whether surviving the battle is enough to constitute a “happy ending” remains to be seen. (Spoiler warning for the CANON ending of the movie.)

Ch. 1: We're starting amid the final battle, so we've got WARNINGS for violence, gore, and <s>heartache</s> the possibility that your heart will be ripped out of your chest and stomped on. )


That's just the scene, not the whole first chapter. But progress, hey?
