and never rose again - Dorkangel
There is no plausible way that the bird-boned little twins, both hurt, will be able to defend themselves against the most foul dangers of the woods, orcs or wolves or, most likely of all, starvation. It is early morning now: they must have been put to flight in the night.
The human hunter doubts very much that they would survive the next night alone.

(In which it is not incorrect, exactly, to say that Eluréd and Elurín were lost in the forest and died there, or to say that most of the people of Haleth left and travelled to the Mouths of Sirion after Húrin's slaying of Brandir. But most is not all, and long happy years might be lived between being lost and dying.)

Balin and Hobbits (series) - Thorinsmut
Balin Likes Hobbits: I just had a thought that maybe Balin is attracted to Hobbit lasses, and this came out… it accidentally turned a little bit sad at the end. I just think that Balin is kind of cute, and so polite, and maybe he, of any of the Dwarves could tempt a Hobbit girl.

A pin: This is a companion piece to Balin likes Hobbits, as told from the perspective of one of his Hobbit lovers who is having a moral dilemma.

A Question Asked In Person: Emmi (That's Miss Emerald Cotman to you, thanks) should have known that she would never be a respectable Hobbit again. There was no helping it now. She knew what she had to do. (Post-quest, a Hobbit lady has a question to ask of Balin. Balin is in Erebor, therefore she will go to Erebor. Don't get in her way.)
