The love of a mother

Tauriel had slept for a while. An uneasy sleep with dark thoughts and worries. She was either too hot or too cold, and the contractions would rise and fall like a fiery tide, burning her body with sharp pain. She didn’t know how long these pains would last before the child would be ready to come, yet she hoped it would be quick.

The old dwarf was sitting in the corner by the hearth, snoring, waking every hour by Tauriel’s exclaims, and then informing her it was still a while before the child was ready.

Tauriel woke suddenly again. The fire was burning her lower abdomen and tears of sweat were rolling down her forehead and chest. Her fingers dug into the sheets beneath her, and she cried from a pain she could do nothing about.

Tauriel hurled the animal skins away, for she felt like she was being suffocated.
«Are you sure that is wise, my dear? The room is quite cold still,» a soft voice spoke suddenly.

Tauriel was startled and met the eyes of the little woman sitting beside her bed, in the same chair where Kíli had been sitting only hours before. Tauriel was mortified and quickly tried to cover herself with the skins again. She was naked, and she was not comfortable exposed in front of this woman. The efforts of it made her moan.

Tauriel finally examined the woman beside her, as her mind had been preoccupied earlier. This dwarf was dark-haired with white streaks, like Thorin, yet her eyes were kinder. Her mood was hard to determine, for she had slightly creased forehead, yet her mouth had a soft pout. Tauriel was not sure who she was, even if her mind maybe should have made the obvious connection straight away.

«I do not think my body realize that, if you would be so kind as to explain that to it,» Tauriel said exasperated, at the moment indifferent to who this woman might be. «I know only of what it chooses to tell me, and I’m afraid it is not in its right mind.»

The dwarf chuckled, slightly amused, and suddenly touched Tauriel’s hand lightly. The woman's hand was chill and sweet on her own, warm hand.

«If nothing I take comfort in the fact that my son has a good taste in women. Not everyone has the strength to humor in this condition.»

«You are Kíli’s mother, then? He has spoken of you, my lady,» Tauriel said, lowering her eyes in sudden respect. She had not known to whom she spoke, and she regretted her lack of manners instantly.

«Only bad things, I presume,» Dís smiled, amused by this idea.

«Only that you thought him to be reckless, which is in my opinion not a bad observation,» Tauriel laughed softly, and bit her lip in pain. She squeezed her own hand so her nails would have pierced her skin, had not the dwarf eased her hand just then.

«It is fierce, this grandchild of yours,» Tauriel breathed through the pain, and exhaled relieved when it ended. «It will have me fighting for it’s life, and it will see I am not easily defeated.»

Dís remembered her own labors, and nodded in agreement.

«My boys were tough as well. They had me fighting twelve hours straight, the both of them. But you are holding up better than I did, I tell you.» Dís smiled and patted Tauriel’s hand.
Tauriel smiled faintly at this, finding strange comfort in this dwarf. It surprised Tauriel, as she knew her brother was Thorin.

«What is your name, dear?» asked Dís, her kind eyes locked on Tauriel.

«My name is Tauriel,» she answered, surprised Kíli had not spoken of her, yet she realized it was not so surprising. She had on her part told no one about him either. It had been her secret since Rivendell.

«And mine is Dís,» nodded Dís, satisfied. «Now we have officially met, and I am glad. I have been wondering for a while who's name it was my son whispers in his sleep.»

«So you knew my name?» Tauriel asked, confused.

«Yes, my dear. I guessed his heartache a long time ago, yet I never knew an elf were to blame,» Dís said, her eyes more serious now.

Tauriel lowered her gaze, expecting the wrath of this dwarf as well. She was afraid of scowling and hateful speech, and she feared she had not the strength to withstand it. She already felt a tear release from her eye, and she looked away, into the hearth. The old dwarf was still sound asleep. Tauriel wondered if she should wake her, so she could make Dís leave.

«My sweet girl,» Dís said as she saw Tauriel’s pained expression. «Do not confuse my worries for my boy as hatred of you. I do neither recent you nor your relationship with my son. I merely dwell on the trouble it will arise for you both.»

Dís held Tauriel’s hand steadily, and Tauriel felt the strength in the dwarves hand, and it reminded her of Kíli’s strong hands.

«You must understand; my son’s are dearest to me. You will soon know the pain of the love between a mother and child. And as you are Kíli’s chosen, my love extend to you. I wish you nothing but happiness, Tauriel, for you are a daughter to me now.»

Tauriel felt her heart grow warm as Dís spoke these words, and she grasped the dwarf’s hand tightly. The emotions suddenly welling up inside of her confused her. Tauriel had never known the love of a mother. Listening to the mother of her chosen, speak of such love that she had never imagined, gave Tauriel newfound strength.

«My lady, I…» Tauriel started without an idea of what to say. Dís hushed her.

«You must call me Dís, for there is no need for pretended courtesy between us. You belong with my son, and so you are a part of our family.»

«I have a feeling your brother thinks differently,» Tauriel said, taken aback by this portray of love from a dwarf. She had never expected such kindness after the mess she had made with Kíli.

Dís exhaled heavily and stood, walking over to the hearth to insert more firewood to the dying flames. «No, you are right. Thorin is as stubborn as this mountain he rule. He’s got that from our father and grandfather. I am afraid he’ll loose Kíli’s trust if he does not change his mind. Kíli has always idolized his uncle, too much for his own good. He has a kindness, you see, unlike his brother and uncle, and I am afraid he will grow cold if the bond of uncle and nephew is broken. This I fear, also for the sake of you and your child.»

Dís sat down beside Tauriel again, and took her hand.

«Then I can’t stay,» Tauriel breathed, tears gathering in her eyes. «I must leave Kíli, for it is I who brought this trouble to your home. I apologize, Dís. I should never have come here!» Tears released from her eyes. Tauriel felt the child kick inside of her, and she cried for the hopelessness of this love she had with Kíli, and the misery it now caused.

Dís touched Tauriel’s face, drying her tears. She leaned in and kissed her forehead, and when she sat back down, she had a sad smile in her eyes.

«Tauriel,» Dís said. «I have never seen my son more passionate about anything or anyone, than he is about you. If nothing else is certain, only know that he loves you, and he will never let you leave this mountain without him. And even if you wanted to, you could not leave him or the child behind here. You need them both, as they need you. Do not trouble yourself with such thoughts, for there is enough to be troubled about as it is.»

«Oh, Dís!» Tauriel said, just in time for the contractions to begin again. She grasped Dís' hand, harder than she had ever intended, as the pain rose sharp and hot in her body. She cried hopelessly.

And Dís held her hand patiently, remembering the feelings of labor, and she did something no dwarf had ever done; she sympathized with the elf. This thought brought again to mind the anger of her brother’s treachery. She would have him apologize to her son, was it the last thing she would ever do.

Tauriel gasped as the pain finally faded again, and she cursed natures way. In what way was it beneficial for any creature to experience such torment? Suddenly she thought of another reason for her pains. Could it be possible that she was feeling extra pain on the account that their child was not indeed natural? Was her body rejecting the child she so dearly desired? Tauriel felt a tear leave her eye as she thought such hateful thoughts, for a child created in love could be no less than a blessing. She would never be convinced otherwise.  

«You are strong indeed, my girl,» Dís said with loving eyes, after a long silence between them.

Tauriel looked at Dís, and kissed her hand with great emotion, for this woman had awaken feelings inside of her she had never thought could be aroused. She felt in her heart that she was indeed her mother, and Tauriel loved Dís for the compassion she showed her, unlike any Tauriel had ever received in her life.

«I know Kíli will never be allowed to marry me, but know that I see him as my husband, as I am his and he is mine. I also wish that my child shall have my husbands name in elvish, if Kíli allows it,» Tauriel said teary eyed, without truly knowing why. She simply wanted Dís to know this, as she had told no one yet. She already knew the name of the child, if it were to be a girl or a boy. She had thought of nothing since the day she had known she was pregnant.

Dís smiled proudly of this idea. «Yes, Tauriel, and that is indeed your choice, for in Erebor, as all dwarven realms, it is the choice of the women what the child is to be named. You understand, it is we who forge the gems inside our bodies, so it does belong to us, in the same way that our people have the right to the metal which they mold. The right to own and to give to whom we choose is ours alone. It is as great an honor to give away our creations as it is to be given something of great value.»

Tauriel was in awe of this strange idea, as it was never a choice for the women in Mirkwood. She suddenly realized why she had traveled here in all haste. She had indeed known in her heart that this was the right place for the child to be born.

Dís smiled at Tauriel’s expression. «I, of course, have let Fíli and Kíli be their own masters until the day I knew I had to give them right to love another woman. I am proud to say that you are the best protector I had ever hoped for my son’s heart. Take great care of it, as it is dearest to me.»

Dís paused to touch Tauriel’s face, which was hot with sweat. «Yet, I do not worry about him, my reckless son, for the first time in my life since he was born.»

Tauriel met her gaze with eyes full of love. She could not comprehend this honor Dís had granted her, and she knew they had the blessing of their mother, had it not been clear before.

This gave Tauriel hope and strength, which she did not think she could have gotten through the night without.
First: Part 1

Last: Part 2
Next: Part 4

Here is part 3, because I can't read it through another time without killing myself. Yes, I know there is a lot of mistakes and the language is awkward at times, but it wont be any better if I continue to nitpick at it, so this will have to do!^^

I do hope you like this, with it's flaws and all.
This is actually the part I like the most of all the parts so far!^^
What do you think?

Awww, Dís… :heart: She’s such a wise and compassionate woman.

I admire you for writing this event like you did, a birth process is a hazardous thing by itself to write down if you ask me. Again the balance between the actual events and the emotions that go with it are so nicely balanced. As well as the descriptions of the physical sensations, clearly there (as they would be hard to ignore) but not to the point that it draws away too much from this ‘mother to mother-to-become conversation’ between Dís and Tauriel. Love 

What a beautiful way, how the Dwarves look on the naming-process of their babies.

it is we who forge the gems inside our bodies, so it does belong to us”


:clap: loved that line!

This was a very important scene to me, and yes it was hard but sweet in the midst of all the drama and problems with thorin!^^
You humble so deeply with your kind words, I dont know what to respond! Im just so happy you like what I do :hug:

And I honestly have no idea if dwarves actually let women name their children, but I do think they appreciate mothers and that mothers do "own" their children, because dwarven men know little of women and childbirth, and they would think of it like the gems that they forge from the mountains! I really like the idea!^^ Thank you! :heart:

I 'll hug him and squeeze him and call him George! Nawww, it is my pleasure! :heart: 

Ahhh, that's what writers are for. To fill in the gaps and give the lore their own signature by doing so. I loved the idea, it really jumped out. I like working with cultures and customs so I have this weird fangirling pavlov-response whenever I see something that has anything to do with it. :XD: :heart: (don't worry, I've had my shots) I actually wondered if it was your idea or Tolkien's when I read it but I descided not to ask because I was like... I LOVE IT SO WHO CARES WHO CAME UP WITH IT! And honestly, I find it refreshing too. :nod:  I don't want to say unfriendly things about Tolkien, he did a great job, but I often missed women in his work in such a way that they are not 'dead and just mentioned' or a 'total embodyment of virtue' without flaws or rough edges. (I'll ignore Shelob's adorable personality in this one :XD: ) I'm glad with Peter Jackson's Tauriel, and I love how you 'took over' in your writings. You don't change my picture of who they (Tauriel and Tolkien's cast) are, you 'add' to them with adding more character, 'humanity' and personality.

I agree, I think Tolkien gave little thought to women in general, and Im also sad that he didnt give the dwarves more attention. His love was with the elves and their language and it is clear in reading the books, but I just LOVE the little he has created abuot the dwarves, and what others have later filled in! Did you read the one about dwarven marriages? I actually used that as a guide while writing this fic, because I too am very interested in their customs and in following their "rules" so to speak!^^ I have even read some khuzdul to understand the language and the race better! Tolkien's dwarves just fascinates me on such a deep level! I have no idea what it's about!
But yes Tolkien didnt give much heed to his women, and that is also why I made their child a girl, because basically all Tolkiens works are from the perspectives of men, and I am very fascinated by women in mens position in a society, especially old, middle aged society, which is what both my own fantasy novels are about x) Strong but feminine women and how they have to survive in a world of men. Strange because Im not much of a feminist! x)

Oh, I haven't read that one actually. It sounds great, though! I agree with you about the dwarves, mind you I adore elves, but the dwarves have that rugged, stubborn and proud air that surrounds them. I love that, that little roughness around the edges without becoming a caricature of themselves. And I like how they balance the other races with their distinct presence and characters.

I couldn't agree more with you on that one. :heart: I like balanced characters, no 'damsels in distress' for me. But I don't like untouchable heroines either. Women that have that natural strength within them and have no need to overcompensate to be believeable. And that are not without flaws either. I love it when people are frustrated about some stupid actions or decisions that my characters make to the point they want to scream at them. Because it means that it moves them and that means I did something right. Like with Dís her fiery temper, I loved it and at the same time I was like "she really shouldn't have done that." But it was so recognizable, that immense frustration, pain and anger that she felt at that moment. It would not have been believeable if she was the one trying to mend things. Like Balin would do. She's a mother fighting for her son(s) and her grandchild that is about to be born; I dare anyone trying to stand in between a mother and her young, no matter what species. :giggle:   

And I have the same feelings for male characters. Even in times where battles were common and bravery on the battlefield was one of the highest virtues; I like to think that the men were more than just totalitarian jerks that would fill their days bashing skulls and groping tavern wenches. Sure there were plenty, but there are plenty of them today as well, I love it when male characters in a 'men's world' are able to find that inner confidence to go beyond bravoure and bravado. Those little gestures where they are not ashamed to show their true feelings as well as the struggle to act as is 'expected' from them. After all, I picture it takes just as much courage to tell Thorin that you are not going to do what he wants you to do as it would take to face an orcish horde. :rofl:

It's a little long, but it is totally worth the read: dwarrowscholar.wordpress.com/2…

OH I have always LOVED elves, and they were the first reason I ever started to draw and write. I actually have this image in my mind where I tried to draw Arwen and her evenstar, I couldnt have been more than 8 or 9, and I couldnt figure out how the evenstar worked.. Its such a clear memory and I see the drawing perfectly in my mind, its crazy! But I have fallen in love with the dwarves, maybe because I see myself in them more than the elves, and despite my height, I would be a perfect dwarf, as I am quite shapely and "strongly" built as i imagine their women are ;) and I love their loyalty and strenght, as you said! I also liek them because they are such a different race from men and elves in tolkiens world, and even thouhg it was clear that those two spieces were his favorite, I love that he made dwarves, again as you said, characterstic without being a caricature! ^^ They are very complex, and I like that!

In general I love characters that are not typical. I dont appreciate damsels in distress, or unbeatable heroines. I love to see the humanity, AGAIN as you said(god we have so many thouhgts in common), in characters that give them that depth that all real people have! It is so important to bring credibility in your writing and see that a character are more than just good or bad; there are so many aspects that make that character special and motivate its actions!^^ I am so honored you like my Dís so much! I have really strong connection to her, which is why she became such a clear character in my head, even withouth reading any other fanficitons or canon work with her! I do hope I get to write her story, as I have been wokring on it for 6 months!^^'

And yes, male characters should be just as complex. Sure, some are more straight forward, but generally ALL characters have a deeper level. Like in Vikings, if you've watched it, Rollo is really that muscled brute who just kills and have whenches whenever he wishes, but throughout the series it becomes clear that he is SO much more than that,becaue EVERYONE are more than just good or bad or a brute or a good man! There are so many aspects to think of, and it is what fascinates me SO of the mind of characters, and I love to write thought and dialogue! I find that when I write a dialogue it can live its own life, and usually I have no clue or controll over where its going, which is because the characters come alive in my mind and they have to be true to themselves, if that makes sense at all x)

Wuhoo... more to read!I Run...with BOOKS Thank you! :heart:

Oh, I can so relate to all of that! :D I could never pass for an elf with my hips or rack, but I used to play D&D for years and I was either an elf or a half-elf. I love that close bond with nature that they have and I love archery so it was pretty obvious that I would end up having pointy ears and true aim. And even though I really love the elves in appearance and design; it is the contrast with the other races that I enjoy the most. I like the idea of elves, being such a standard for beauty and high culture, are able to find something 'new' in these other races. Maybe find virtues in things that they are used to look down upon because they never cared to understand... And when it comes to aesthetics; I feel more at ease drawing elves than humans because for some reason the lines just flow better. All things improve with training and practice, but for some reason the elves are more forgiving to me. :D

We do indeed! :la: And I love it, writers tend to have some unusual tendencies and thought patterns and it's so nice finding a kindred spirtit. Someone with the same allergy for damsels in distress and love for characters with depth, motives and realistic personalities. To each his own, of course There are plenty of people out there who prefer a more black and white setting and wouldn't enjoy reading about people's inner struggles but for me that really makes a character believable and a story enjoyable. :aww: And some just jump out from the start, to me Dís is such a character. Your work is the first work I've read where she has a role, and this is pretty much how I picture her to be. I love to read her story as well! :)

Layers, layers, layers! I love working with them and I love seeing them in other people's work. I still need to watch Vikings, I really loved some of the parts that I had seen but I haven't watched more than a few snippets. A few years ago, I moved from the Netherlands to this lovely piece of rural Germany and I love my own little middle of nowhere... :heart: :heart: :heart: but internet is a b*tch with a datacap, I can't get cable but use a mobile device so when there is a storm my internet often dies. TV-wise the Germans tend to dub every movie and series instead of using subtitles or just stick to the original English. And I rather undergo a rootcanal than watch something like Vikings, or GOT or LOTR in anything else but English. So it might take me a while before I can watch it :(

I have that same thing with GOT, where you have that balance between raw and uncensored violence, manipulation, hidden agendas without losing its humanity. A brilliant writer, my writing-example and a man I truly admire is Bernhard Hennen. His bookseries "The Elves" really became my fantasy-bible. I love the setting of Nordic/Germanic/Celtic human culture combined with elves and other fantasy races and he's a master of making you pick a side and despise a character or faction, and then switch the pov and make you feel bad for thinking so poorly about those you considered to be absolute a-holes before. Another thing that makes me so happy about reading his work is that he knows what he's talking about. I hate it when things make no sense, even fantasy can be realistic. He studied history, those specific cultures and medieval and renaissance combat and warfare and based his writings on that knowlegde. That's what really makes me enjoy his work because I can read it without grinding my teeth over things that are inaccurate and make me want to throw away the book. 

Dialogues are the first things I tend to write down. Most of my notes consist of dialogues and steno-like descriptions of the environment, events and body language. I love writing dialogues, I love combining spoken word with body language and inner-struggles and I often practice my dialogues aloud when I am writing them. So yes, I am one of those idiots that talks to herself all day...:XD: When I think I am alone, like when I take the dogs for a walk in the forest behind my house I can do the same. And then feel like an absolute wacko when I suddenly encounter another person. Ashamed I bet they think I am a schizophrenic or just a general nutcase when they hear me as I repeat my lines and then grab my notebook to write them down as my greyhounds are wagging their tails at my tales. :XD: Another great thing of going through your own dialogues is that they tend to live their own life and end up into something that is so much better than what you originally had in mind. Yeah... I love dialogues. :heart:

HAaha yeah I also love the elves and their grace and beauty, and i will always be fascinated by elven mythology in the real world as well as the fantasy ones ive read, but i love the dwarves becasue they are underappreciated!^^ I love the brutality and stubbornness of their demeanor, i usually play with a bow and axe in Skyrim, which is because I love badass girls i suppose ^^ We are very alike i realize, with manyof the same opinions, and its nice to know!^^

Actually I have found that drawing dwarves much more agree with me for some reason x) I may have messed up my view on anatomy over the last year as I have basically drawn nothing but dwarves, but I love their thick bodytypes and their strenght. I LOVE drawing strong women which I feel i can do with dwarves but not with elves and humans. I think generally women with more muscles are much prettier than skinny ones, so I always try to work it into my art!^^

And I also talk a LOT with myself, in general and not just about my stories, but that is very smart, and I've heard that people who talk with themselves have a highe IQ so we got that going for us ;) Im so sorry to hear about your network, Id DIE without a working network or cable and NO YOU CANNOT watch lotr, got or the vikings in any other language than English! I love germans but that is the only thing that annoys the crap out of me x) I hope you get a working cable soon! :)

I am to assume the old dwarf lady is a midwife, and is only waiting for the child to crown in order to assist Tauriel. Having gone through this experience myself in real life is enough for me to know it will be a long night for sure.

The half elf child has me worried about being born at all, given the fact that it will be a totally different race. And yes, it IS possible that her body rejects it as if something foreign to her. 

Dis understanding, however, is admirable. Two thumbs up.

Yes she was introduced in part 2, im sorry if that was unclear!
I have not experienced this, but I have a heard a lot about it, and tried to keep it as realistic as possible! Im really happy if you think it's realistic!

Yes, indeed, I'm a little unsure of the proportions of the child, but it will be fun to figure out!^^
I added her worry mainly to cover every basis, and as she has not have any other children before, and is probably uninformed on the topic, I can think it would be a scary situation to be in.

I LOVE Dís. I just can't get enough of her! and Im glad you like my version of her!^^
