Twisted by the effects of dragon sickness, Thorin banishes not only Bilbo but the entire company from Erebor. Days pass with no word from their missing leader and, fearing the effects the gold may have on the other dwarves, Bilbo decides to enter the mountain alone in search of Thorin.
What he finds may not be Thorin for much longer.
Or: In which the dragon sickness is slowly transforming Thorin into a dragon, and Bilbo must save him before it is too late.
- Part 1 of Prayers to Broken Stone
There is a road that leads away from the house. It is gravel, and it is wide and long, a straight shot that runs along the length of the lake. It disappears there, at the far end of the lake, and Thorin knows that it curves to the left, into a little hollow. From there it climbs, then falls, then climbs again. Thorin used to travel the road—he used to know the crunch of tires on gravel, even the feel of gravel beneath his feet. He used to look at the house from a distance, from across the lake, and now—
He is as firmly entrenched in his house as the dead, looking out at the lake through wide windows and pale curtains.
