- It has a rather negative connotation.
- It is not a positive, friendly smile, so it is not a (positive) substitute for it.
- It can be both a verb or a noun yet it is preferred not to overuse as a verb
- I would define it as a “smug, condescending, mocking” kind of smile.
- smile thinly or warmly
- crack a smile
- raise a smile
- force a smile/laugh
- a big smile/kiss/hug etc.
- Beam = a huge smile
Good luck with your writing. Smile is a tough one to find other definitions for but you definitely do not want to have a nice character smirk. :)
It’s dinner with the family and the opportunity to meet Kili’s mother as well as his uncles Thorin and Bilbo. It’s a relief to find that Dwalin and Ori will be there. Fili is so nervous he’s wondering if he will be able to eat anything, but having a couple of familiar faces will be comforting. When it comes to meeting family for the first time everyone needs all the comfort they can get.
Thank you for being so patient and waiting for this chapter and art. Sometimes real life gets in the way of fan life. I’m sure you’ll agree that Pabu’s magnificent art makes up for the wait.
Kili used to be a champion BMX racer, but now he rolls on 4 wheels instead of two. He is learning to deal with life in a wheelchair. Fili is an artist who was betrayed by the one he loves. He’s learning to trust again. Fili and Kili are NOT brothers in this modern AU.
Bagginshield Modern Day AU: Fides et Veritas
Faith and Truth said the gothic letters right beneath the school’s coat of arms. Faith and Truth to and for everyone, that was what they told their students, what they asked them to make their maxim and right until now, Bilbo had done his best to make them his too - well, that was until that new/old head master made it more or less (actually rather less) clear that he was not exactly fond of Bilbo. But still - the year that first seemed to turn into a nightmare, soon proves to be the landmark of Bilbo’s life and the greatest adventure of all.
I’m currently reading this and can’t put it down. It is extremely well written. It’s works like this that made me start liking Bagginshield.
Dawn started living for real on the day she died.
READ THE TAGS CAREFULLY
Read the 5th chapter [HERE]
No drama, just drawing closer and closer, learning about one another and making adjustments both physically and mentally. Relationships don’t just happen, they must be nurtured. Fortunately Fili is very good at nurturing.
If you are new to this story - Kili was badly injured by a drunk driver and is now learning to cope with life on wheels — 4 wheels as opposed to the two he was used to as a BMX bike racer. Fili is a gentle artist from New Zealand who has his own injuries to heal. Together just maybe they can make it.

You Really Really should be reading Romance in Rio:
"Hi guys! I’m a disabled athlete (track) and I decided to give this a go. I am not at Paralympic level, so I did a lot of research on life at the Paralympics :) Before you start reading, I wanted to give you a rundown of who has what disability.
Dean has moderate quadriplegia from a spinal cord injury—he has some feeling in his trunk, especially on his right side, and moderate movement in his arms. One hand is completely closed, but the other hand can move and grip some. He has a PCA (personal care assistant) named Chris. Both of Aidan’s legs were amputated just above the knee when he was five, and he uses a wheelchair rather than prosthetics.
Adam has leg length difference—his right leg is about six inches shorter than the left. Graham has cerebral palsy on his left side, and so has impaired movement and a noticeable limp. Richard is completely blind and has been since birth, with very little light perception in either eye. Jed has cerebral palsy on both sides, but it is relatively mild and he walks unaided. James has Friereich’s ataxia, with muscle weakness in his limbs, and he uses a wheelchair for distances. Orlando is fully paralyzed from the waist down.
Modern Adean AU - very very romantic and sweet. :)
CHASE THE WIND - Chapter 9 by Drakkhammer. Illustrated by Pabu.
Betrayal is bitter and stays in the heart longer than on the tongue. It takes work to let it go and open yourself up again. Bodies are not the only things crushed in an accident. Self-confidence can also be a casualty. It takes time and acceptance to rebuild what was destroyed. It also takes a partner who needs support as well. Their path is not well marked but together they are exploring it. Together they are working to heal.
Kili used to be a champion BMX racer, but now he rolls on 4 wheels instead of two. He is learning to deal with life in a wheelchair. Fili is an artist who was betrayed by the one he loves. He’s learning to trust again.
Fili and Kili are NOT brothers in this modern AU.
Thank you so much, dear! I’m so glad you enjoy them! Thank you for reading and your kind words!
I think they are some of the best storytelling around. If you are used to cookie-cutter stories that don’t have anything new, start with Rent-Boy and you will fall in love. Fili and Kili were never better. They aren’t brothers, so everyone can read it in comfort.

Anders Johnson has lived a life of lies and stories. Mitchell can be trusted with the truth, but Anders doesn’t seem to see it.
Sometimes you find a truly delightful and beautifully written story that you just have to share. “The Storyteller” is one of these. It’s 580 words of pure magic.
What a marvelous little story!
Tumbler should know about this book, it and Ginny should never be forgotten. The TRUE story of: The Dog Who Rescues Cats.
Philip Gonzalez had lost all interest in living after an industrial accident left him disabled. A friend suggested he adopt a dog.Reluctantly he went to the shelter, where Ginny, a badly abused one-year-old pup,quickly won him over. Philip realized immediately that Ginny was no ordinary dog—she had an amazing sixth sense that enabled her to find and rescue stray and ailing cats.There’s Madame,who is completely deaf; Revlon, who has only one eye;Betty Boop,who has no hind feet;and Topsy, a paralyzed kitten whom Ginny found abandoned in an empty building. Ginny and Philip have now rescued and found homes for over 200 cats, and they have over 60 “outdoor cats” whom they visit and feed twice daily. Even more than extraordinary, Ginny’s angelic mission has given Philip a sense of purpose and a new lease on life. You will never forget the true adventures of Ginny, the dog who rescues cats.
Gigantic and Impeccably Lit is one of the funniest stories I’ve ever read. And totally out of character for me…it’s RLF, but I can’t help thinking that everyone in it would laugh their ass off it they read it. Well, maybe not Richard…he’d be too busy blushing. He’d be complimented…but blushing. This hysterically funny story has far too few hits, so come on over and have a giggle.
just because i don’t follow u back doesn’t mean i think u have a shitty blog. you might just have posts/fandoms/stuff i don’t really want on my dash. and hey, that’s fine. it’s YOUR tumblr you’re here for you and that’s goodgreatawesome
but please don’t think me not following you back means i hate u 5ever and that u can never inbox me or reply to my posts or follow me on twitter or something b/c that is not what it means at all
I wish I could follow everyone, but you end up with so many people who post the same thing because we all like the same stuff, that it means I can’t find the new things to blog when there are so many of the same Fili, Kili, Thorin, Sherlock, SPN, etc. But…I do type your name into my address bar and it fills in for me cause I go to your page so often and I find the gems I’ve missed. Not following you doesn’t mean I don’t love you…it just means we all love the same thing.
