"Ugh, I'm so bored." You complained. 

"We know, (Y/N)." Dwalin said with a roll of the eyes. "That's the 10th time you've said it."

"But I am." You replied. "Really, we've been walking for two days and there's nothing to do."

"Well, find some way to entertain yourself." Dwalin said. "And go bother someone else while you're at it."

"Aw! But Dwalin, I want to walk with you." You said with a playful grin. "Besides, I know that you like me keeping you company."

"Actually, I find you incredibly annoying." He replied. "Leave me alone and go walk with Bofur; I'm sure he'd love to chat with you." You smiled at him and shook your head, indicating that you had no intentions of leaving his side. Dwalin rolled his eyes. "Alright! You can walk with me. But, no talking, understand."

You nodded, giving him a look of mock seriousness. The two of you walked side by side with Dwalin being his usual, frowny face self. You look back at Fili and Kili, who were walking with Bofur not too far behind you. They all flashed you a smile and you pointed to Dwalin and gave them a funny look, as if to say 'can you believe this guy?' They all snickered and accidentally caught Dwalins' attention in the process. He turned to you and you gave him an innocent smile. He glared at you suspiciously and kept walking. You looked at the two Durin brothers and Bofur, all of you grinning at your antic. You kept walking, running a little to keep up with Dwalin.

You were still bored. You had nothing else to do except look at the scenery, which had gotten boring after a while since pretty much all it was was one mountain plain after another. You started internally humming a random song you got stuck in your head. It was a very annoying, catchy song and you did not know where it came from. Suddenly, you got an idea! A very wicked, wonderful idea! You looked at Dwalin with a devious smirk, then, very quietly, you began to sing.

I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves!

Everybody's nerves!

Everybody's nerves!

I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves!

And this is how it goes!


You repeated the song several times over. And each time, your voice got louder, and more annoying. You received mixed reactions from the company. Balin, Thorin, Bilbo and some of the older dwarves rolled their eyes, obviously trying to hold back their annoyance. Fili, Kili, Bofur and the others just laughed while some of them smiled and shook their heads. Dwalin, of course, was not at all amused.

"(Y/N)! What did I tell you before?!" He said.

"Ah, but you see..." You said playfully. " said no talking. Technically, I'm not talking. I'm singing now."

"You think you're real smart, don't you?" He said, glaring.

"Most definitely!" You said still grinning.

You continued singing your very annoying song. And every time Dwalin tried to protest, you'd just sing louder and intentionally off key to a point where you were practically screaming it at him just to drown him out and drive him nuts. He cringed and glared at you every time your voice got louder. Your singing was mixed with the laughter of some of the others in the company. Even Thorin was amused by all this. You tried to encourage Bofur and some of the others to sing with you. They joined in, sort of, They were kind of whispering it, mainly out of fear of the looks Dwalin was giving them. You continued to sing, growing louder with each repeat. You did not fear Dwalin; you knew he would never hurt you. Besides, you were having way too much fun driving him crazy. You refused to stop, singing for a good 10 to 15 minutes; the fact that you survived that long was a miracle!

Finally, Dwalin hit his breaking point.

"FOR MAHALS' SAKE!! SHUT UP!!! I'LL WRING YOUR LITTLE NECK!!!" He shouted. You immediately stopped, turned around and bolted, laughing as Dwalin started chasing you. The rest of the company stopped and watched as you two ran through and around them like obstacles. "Come here, you little rascal!" Dwalin shouted as you dodged him, still laughing, and singing.

"Shield me, Bombur!" You shouted, hiding behind the fat dwarf. 

"First off, that's insulting." Bombur said. "Secondly, I want no part of this."

With that, he ran off, leaving you unprotected and open. The others shouted at you to run as Dwalin charged at you. You barely got the chance to run when suddenly, Dwalin grabbed you and lifted you, slinging you over his shoulder like a sack.

"Hey, put me down!" You shouted as everyone else laughed.

"Only if you stop singing that infernal song." Dwalin said.

You slumped in defeat. "Alright." He very gently put you down. "Besides, I won't have to anymore." He gave you a frown. "I bet you will be singing that song before the day is done."

"Oh, no I won't." Dwalin said.

"Sure you will." You replied. "You see, I was just trying to get that song stuck in your head. That was my evil plan the whole time, and my evil plans always work. I bet that song is already in your head, it's just waiting to get out."

Dwalin smirked. "Keep dreaming, Lass. I will never sing that song." With that, he turned and continued walking. You smiled and followed him and the others.


Later that evening, around the campfire, you were sitting across from Dwalin, watching him as he sat there, sharpening his knife. Finally, you heard the sound you had been waiting to hear; the faint sound of him singing.

I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves

Everybody's nerves

Everybody's nerves

I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves

And this is how it goes

He stopped, suddenly realizing what he was doing. He growled and smacked himself on the forehead with his palm to get himself to stop singing it. A few minutes later, he was singing it again and he did the same thing to get himself to stop.

He heard you laugh lightly from across the campfire and he looked up and saw you smirking triumphantly. He stared at you for a moment, then he huffed and went back to sharpening his knives, occasionally singing that annoying song under his breath. You continued to smirk triumphantly knowing you had won.

Your evil plan was a success! 
This based off of a prompt from

Prompt: Imagine walking along with the company and beginning to sing "I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves" and refusing to stop.

I don't even have a Tumbler, but I followed a link to that  blog and just fell in love with it. As soon as I saw this one I just had to write a story for it, and it kind of took on a life of it's own. Besides, I needed to write something lighthearted after writing "Regret".

I also got so many other ideas from that blog, so there will be several more of these. Yay! More clutter for my!

I Own Nothing!

I think that might have been what was in the back of my head when I wrote that. =P (Razz)
