[When Tauriel's hand nears and brushes his braid, Fili catches himself holding his breath, though his lungs soon take issue with that. Shaking his head slightly, he sits up, but smiles.]

I've slept enough. [Just about draped over her like a third blanket, at that. Something else may be unspoken here, but palpable, another sort of gratitude. He and Kili haven't ceased to make up a unit.]

... But you'll have your hands full with my brother awhile longer, I think. [Which doesn't appear to bother her, either.] Give him a shove, if you need to. I'll take the blame.

[Well, if Tauriel had planned on getting out of bed, Kili has definitely made it a little more difficult. There's a kiss pressed to the top of Kili's head before she does in fact, give him a little shove so she can sit up.]

You needn't take the blame for my actions. [She stretches languorously.

Enjoy the view, gentlemen.]

[Kili complains as he's shoved but scoots over obediently, finally starting to wake up. He yawns and blinks awake, just in time to watch Tauriel stretch.

He might be staring a bit.]
walkingarsenal: (Hi there.)

[personal profile] walkingarsenal 2014-01-12 09:43 am (UTC)(link)
[A kiss, a shove and a sight that apparently woke Kili better than any poking and prodding. Upon glancing at Kili's face, Fili takes back an instant of regret. 'Poor Kili' hardly applies now.

But to watch Tauriel as Kili does isn't something that Fili can do; vaguely, at times, there's still this sense of... intruding? So, for the moment and for the most part, he keeps his eyes averted.]

Morning, brother. Glad you could join us.
daughteroftheforest: (kissy kissy)

[personal profile] daughteroftheforest 2014-01-12 09:55 am (UTC)(link)
[That look in Fili's eyes is hard to miss, and Tauriel has seen it before. Without any hesitation she leans forward, pushing back his hair so she can press a kiss to his neck before she offers a comment to Kili.]

We thought you'd sleep the day away if you could.

[Kili sits up and stretches, yawning. This thing between him and Tauriel and Fili is still sort of new and there's still a twinge of jealousy when Tauriel pays attention to Fili, but he's getting much better at pushing it aside.

He manages a laugh and shrugs, rubbing absently at his thigh where the morgul arrow had once pierced him.]

I probably would, had I not been shoved so rudely.
walkingarsenal: (Keywords elusive keywords.)

[personal profile] walkingarsenal 2014-01-12 12:29 pm (UTC)(link)
[Fili would like to think that he's become part of this only to do what he has always done, to watch over Kili. That's his duty to his brother. And here, he means to see that nothing touches what has sprung up between Kili and Tauriel, who don't need a guard, but--

Who knows, it could be turning into an excuse.

Although he has a smile for Tauriel and for her remark, seconds later he watches Kili again, scrutinizing his reaction. The last thing he wants to be is a wedge.]

Someone shoved you? [Unfortunately, Fili doesn't have the face to pull off wide-eyed innocence as well as certain little brothers might. Exchanging a look with Tauriel, as if to ask whether she witnessed that shocking deed, may be more convincing.]
daughteroftheforest: (serene expression)

[personal profile] daughteroftheforest 2014-01-12 08:13 pm (UTC)(link)
You could ill afford to sleep all day, now could you? [Tauriel is smoothly serene in her reasoning, looking back at Fili blithely before fastening her gaze on Kili.]

Are there not a great many things that require your attention today?
kilimanjaro: (he's killed hundreds of dragons guys)

[personal profile] kilimanjaro 2014-01-12 11:05 pm (UTC)(link)
[Oh please, Fili. Kili sticks his tongue out at his brother before his attention goes back to Tauriel.]

Aye, like you?

[Come here you beautiful elf maid you. Kili leans in to kiss her.]
walkingarsenal: (Totally the longest nose.)

[personal profile] walkingarsenal 2014-01-12 11:44 pm (UTC)(link)
[So rude, Kili. Even more rude to call Tauriel a thing! But yes, put your tongue to better use.

Fili rolls his eyes, hides another smile, and decides that a hunt for a comb requires his own attention first.]
daughteroftheforest: (sidelong)

[personal profile] daughteroftheforest 2014-01-13 12:05 am (UTC)(link)
[Tauriel leans forward, pressing her mouth to Kili's and giving him a brief nuzzle.] Help your brother find a comb? I think we all need tending to.

[Between the three of them, their hair is something of a chore. It's easier when there are others to aid in managing it all.]
kilimanjaro: (Default)

[personal profile] kilimanjaro 2014-01-13 12:08 am (UTC)(link)
I definitely need tending to.

[Oh come on, Tauriel!]

But not with a comb.
walkingarsenal: (Keywords go here.)

[personal profile] walkingarsenal 2014-01-13 12:24 am (UTC)(link)
[Success is a comb and a brush, and Fili brandishes both as he returns to catch the hints that Kili is dropping like boulders.]

You're right. You'll break it.

[Don't mind the brush inching closer and closer to Kili's head. Fili has no intention of interrupting other pressing things to attend to.]
daughteroftheforest: (over the shoulder)

[personal profile] daughteroftheforest 2014-01-13 12:42 am (UTC)(link)
[She lets out a low laugh, her brows lifting as she kisses Kili again while Fili makes the approach with grooming tools brandished.]

Lucky for you Fili has a brush as well. [She laces her fingers into Kili's hair, stroking her nails across his scalp.]
kilimanjaro: (cookies :))

[personal profile] kilimanjaro 2014-01-13 12:47 am (UTC)(link)
[Kili kisses back, catching his brother's words with a sigh and an eye roll. Of course they're going to deliberately misunderstand.]

Lucky indeed. Come on, brother, don't I get a kiss from you too?

walkingarsenal: (No such thing as too many sharp things.)

[personal profile] walkingarsenal 2014-01-13 01:18 am (UTC)(link)
[They really do have a lot of hair between them, but it's a privilege to work with Tauriel's and a comfortable routine to tackle Kili's. And since Tauriel must be providing the perfect distraction, Fili drops the comb in his brother's lap, freeing up one hand for it to close around a fistful of Kili's hair. The other side he leaves for Tauriel's fingers.]

I'll consider it. Tauriel is braver than I am, to go near you now.
daughteroftheforest: (but elves never smile or laugh!)

[personal profile] daughteroftheforest 2014-01-13 01:30 am (UTC)(link)
[Tauriel seems highly amused by Kili's affections and Fili's strategies, and she grins at the elder of the two over the younger's shoulder.]

Do I need to keep you from fidgeting while Fili takes care of your hair? Will I need to provide a distraction?

[From her tone, she has ideas on how to do that.]
kilimanjaro: (he's killed hundreds of dragons guys)

[personal profile] kilimanjaro 2014-01-13 01:48 am (UTC)(link)
[Kili huffs up at his brother.]

What's wrong with me now?

[He smiles at Tauriel and blows her a kiss.]

Couldn't go wrong.
walkingarsenal: (Keywords go here.)

[personal profile] walkingarsenal 2014-01-13 02:40 am (UTC)(link)
[What's wrong with Kili now? They could be risking their limbs, every time they get too close to these tangles.

There's nothing actually wrong with Kili at all, if Tauriel isn't put off by any dried slobber or morning breath. Rather than making something up, Fili just gives his brother a look that should convey everything (probably too late, so that it ends up directed at the tip of Kili's ear) before he ventures on. The first stroke of the brush glides through dark strands. The second snags.

For Tauriel, there's a nod.]

This may take longer than last time.
daughteroftheforest: (but elves never smile or laugh!)

[personal profile] daughteroftheforest 2014-01-13 03:07 am (UTC)(link)
Of course any distraction I might provide may equally distract Fili as well.

[They're an impish cast to her features as she half turns in her reclining position, and as limber as a cat, tugs her sleep tunic off. Turning back, she leans back once more, and letting the long length of her hair drape across her torso and keep her body from fully being in view.]

Are you sure the both of you wouldn't prefer a lady a little shorter, more buxom, and hirsute?
kilimanjaro: (but but how can you say no to my face)

[personal profile] kilimanjaro 2014-01-13 03:34 am (UTC)(link)
[Kili winces as the brush snags, giving his brother an irritated look. It quickly disappears as Tauriel sheds her clothes, graceful and lithe and beautiful, and the younger dwarf swallows, mouth slightly open as he stares.]

...Very sure.
walkingarsenal: (Totally the longest nose.)

[personal profile] walkingarsenal 2014-01-13 06:35 am (UTC)(link)
[Consider Fili distracted. He pauses, the brush behind Kili's ear, gaze flicking to Tauriel's hair. Then, peering at Kili from the side, he chuckles.]

Completely sure.

[He's never seen Kili look at anyone the way he looks at Tauriel; her size or her shape or the lack of hair on her chin don't matter. It goes much deeper. And she is beautiful, a treat to watch with her daggers in hand.

Most importantly, without her, they would have lost Kili that night in Lake-town. Fili doubts that there is anyone else out there who would be as right a fit for his brother, despite the complicated parts of what she is.]
daughteroftheforest: (starlight)

[personal profile] daughteroftheforest 2014-01-13 06:54 am (UTC)(link)
[There is no lack of wonderment in Tauriel's mind and heart regarding Kili and Fili. With Kili the attraction had been instant, but time spent with Fili had given time for her feelings to grow. She loves them both, and it pains her to see them question the measure of it for either them.]

I think that I will keep you distracted from the pull of the brush until Fili is finished, and then I shall do the same for him while you take care of that great mane of his.

[She slides closer to Kili, draping herself next to him and leaning close so her body's pressed to his. Tilting his chin up, she slides her mouth along that scruffy jaw of his, leaving kisses, making it easier for Fili to tend to his hair. The elder brother is favored with a smile that is also a promise. He does not escape her notice, before her attention returns to Kili.]
kilimanjaro: (Default)

[personal profile] kilimanjaro 2014-01-13 07:00 am (UTC)(link)
[Sometimes it seems so strange, the bond holding all three of them together. Kili's always loved his brother, but he hadn't realized how deep that had ran until he and Tauriel had agreed to bring Fili into the bedroom too. And now there's this strange sort of sharing going on between them.

Honestly? Kili couldn't be happier. He's in love with Tauriel and he gets to keep his affections for his brother alive at the same time.]

I think I like the sound of that.

[A faint shiver runs down his spine as Tauriel presses close to him, and his eyes flutter closed as she gets to work with her distracting.]
walkingarsenal: (Actually not that long.)

[personal profile] walkingarsenal 2014-01-13 08:11 am (UTC)(link)
[Teamwork at its best. Fili has to smile, too. His conscience could rain on everyone's parade pipe up, but right now, there are things that require his full attention to get back to.

With Kili probably only too happy to draw this out for as long as he can, Fili picks up the brush again, slowly working his way through his task.]
