THIS KILLS ME SO MUCH. I've seen people claim that Thorin does not care, that he is cold and heartless. Just look at this. He DOES love his nephews, he cares for them as if they were his own sons. For him to show affection is rare, perhaps, but when it does happen his nephews are so glad for it. Look at little Kili's smile -- this sign of affection means more to him than all the gold in Erebor.
