“‘Who are these miserable persons?’ said the Great Goblin.
“‘Dwarves, and this!’ said one of the drivers, pulling at Bilbo’s chain so that he fell forward onto his knees, ‘We found them sheltering in our Front Porch.'”
~The Hobbit, Chapter 4: Over Hill and Under Hill
“Deep down here by the dark water lived old Gollum, a small slimy creature. I don’t know where he came from, nor who or what he was. He was Gollum – as dark as darkness, except for two big round pale eyes in his thin face. He had a little boat, and he rowed about quite quietly on the lake; for lake it was, wide and deep and deadly cold.”
~The Hobbit, Chapter 5: Riddles in the Dark
“‘And here’s the burglar!’ said Bilbo stepping down into the middle of them, and slipping off the ring.
“Bless me, how they jumped! Then they shouted with surprise and delight.”
~The Hobbit, Chapter 6: Out of the Frying-Pan, Into the Fire
Oh my gosh, this was the worst month I’ve had so far… which is actually strangely appropriate, considering that’s probably exactly how Bilbo felt during this particular part of his journey ;P
You know, between goblins, and Gollum, and things are probably going to get worse before they get better ;P Hopefully we can get away from the wargs quickly and the Eagles can get us to the Eyrie at least before the next month is up!
Whoop, time to run!
