Blessings Challenge: Ill-gotten Wealth

Title: Ill-gotten Wealth
Author: Himring
Characters/Pairing: Dwarves of Erebor, Thranduil
Rating: Gen
Warnings: none
Book/Source: The Hobbit (movie-verse)
Disclaimer: I'm neither JRRT nor PJ. I hope nobody minds.
Summary: In response to dwimordene_2011's The Wealth of Kingdoms, which is written from Thranduil's POV. The dwarves have their say.

Thieves, he thinks, murderers, and it shows in his face. Thranduil does not respect steel or its makers, handles Erebor-forged swords as if they were shoddy kitchen knives patched up in some Gondorian backyard. The work of the hands of the heirs of Durin!

The honor-price? Price of shame we should call it: such transactions demean both buyer and seller. He can ill afford it? He knows we have sometimes gifted freely to Dale what we charged him doubly for. It has taught him nothing. See, here he comes crawling back, no wiser than Thingol once was. Thieves, he thinks.
