It’s really weird comparing the amount of Thorin and Bilbo interactions between the two movies, because somehow I still think the first movie has more, but when you really count even just moments they’re anywhere near each other, that’s not true. They’re next to each other a lot in DoS, make little comments, have a tiny few moments of speaking together, yet AUJ still feels shippier to me?? And it’s because the even fewer moments they have in AUJ are all like five times as important and meaningful than most of the ones in Dos put together, ya feel??? And I think about this and I just want to ask PJ w h y yyy why you built them up so perfectly and beautifully in that first movie but then
