Far over the Misty Mountains rise...

Kili ”The Ladies Man” ~
Annnnnnnd it’s finally finished!!!
After spent loads of time working on it I kinda tune in my inner Elsa, sang “Let it go” and decided to post it just like it is now :D
It took loads of time mostly because I kept changing the initial idea, adding new details, deleting others and… ugh! the file was absolutely gigantic, so I decided to finally stop adding stuff and kinda…save it the way it was.
Anyway, here’s "Line of Durin" (send me a message for prints ^-^)
A Black Arrow. Why did you never tell me?
Because you did not need to know.
Happy Fíli Friday

If you run into trouble...
Before you could get round Mirkwood in the North you would be right among the slopes of the Grey Mountains, and they are simply stiff with goblins, hobgoblins, and rest of the worst description. Before you could get round it in the South, you would get into the land of the Necromancer; and even you. Bilbo, won’t need me to tell you tales of that black sorcerer. I don’t advise you to go anywhere near the places overlooked by his dark tower! Stick to the forest-track, keep your spirits up, hope for the best, and with a tremendous slice of luck you may come out one day and see the Long Marshes lying below you, and beyond them, high in the East, the Lonely Mountain where dear old Smaug lives, though I hope he is not expecting you.

Keep watching over Durin’s sons.
Azanulbizar (Dimrill Dale)
A name in the tongue of Men of the North for a great valley on the eastern side of the Misty Mountains. The valley, which was part of the ancient Dwarf-kingdom of Khazad-dûm, is also called Nanduhirion in Sindarin and Azanulbizar in Khuzdul.
A bloody battle was fought in Dimrill Dale between Dwarves and the Orcs of Moria, in which the latter were defeated and their leader Azog killed. In T.A. 2989 Balin and his followers fought the orcs here on the way to Moria. Thirty years later the Fellowship of the Ring paused in the valley, having escaped from Moria and the loss of Gandalf.
