    Is it the elusive elvish feast encountered by Bilbo and the dwarves in Mirkwood?

    “After a good deal of creeping and crawling they peered round the trunks and looked into a clearing where some trees had been felled and the ground levelled. There were many people there, elvish-looking folk, all dressed in green and brown and sitting on sawn rings of the felled trees in a great circle. There was a fire in their midst and there were torches fastened to some of the trees round about; but most splendid sight of all: they were eating and drinking and laughing merrily.
    The smell of the roast meats was so enchanting that, without waiting to consult one another, every one of them got up and scrambled forwards into the ring with the one idea of begging for some food. No sooner had the first stepped into the clearing than all the lights went out as if by magic.”

    Excerpt From
    The Hobbit
    J. R. R. Tolkien
    “...and he lived happily ever after, to the end of his days”

    Bilbo’s “curious”, or “unexpected” all-nighter at Bag End with the dwarves and Gandalf?

    PS lots of parties seem to involve dwarves... funny that

    Neither that.

    I am starting to think that I didn´t formulate my riddle very well or maybe one needs another point of view on this problem?


    Here comes hint: of all sizes

    No clue whatsoever.

    Where’s Boraxxe when you need him?

    I would say somewhere deep in archives of Minas Tirith looking for only he knows what

    Ok, time for the next hint: dwarves overslept this event


    And to make it easier and not to prolong this riddle longer than needed, I would like to add, that participants don´t belong to men, hobbits, elves, dwarves or orcs. (This is the reason for curious for me. Since for all mentioned races it is common to have parties.)


    PS: too many smiles for me in one post, but I will still keep them.

    Another guess - the party the Valar were throwing when Melkor and Ungoliant rocked up and covered it in shadow:

    “But Melkor looked north, and saw afar the shining plain, and the silver domes of Valmar gleaming in the mingling of the lights of Telperion and Laurelin. Then Melkor laughed aloud, and leapt swiftly down the long western slopes; and Ungoliant was at his side, and her darkness covered them.

    Now it was a time of festival, as Melkor knew well. Though all tides and seasons were at the will of the Valar, and in Valinor there was no winter of death, nonetheless they dwelt then in the Kingdom of Arda, and that was but a small realm in the halls of Eä, whose life is Time, which flows ever from the first note to the last chord of Eru. And even as it was then the delight of the Valar (as is told in the Ainulindalë) to clothe themselves as in a vesture in the forms of the Children of Ilúvatar, so also did they eat and drink, and gather the fruits of Yavanna from the Earth, which under Eru they had made.

    Therefore Yavanna set times for the flowering and the ripening of all things that grew in Valinor; and at each first gathering of fruits Manwë[…]”

    Doesn´t this party involves also elves?


    Still, it isn´t the solution I am looking for.


    It isn´t about the original 7 dwarves who overslept. It is about the 13 you mentioned in your first two guesses.

    (of course, Bilbo was sleeping with them, too, just not so well.)

    When Bilbo and the dwarves (13, I think, rather than 12) were captured by goblins in the cave in the Misty Mountains. Bilbo awoke, and cried out, when the goblins stole the ponies and all were captured, except Gandalf, and taken down to Goblin Town.

    corrected, thank you.

    It isn´t this.

    Bilbo and the dwarves being abducted by the three trolls for a jammin party.

    The list of races and sizes hint gives it away I think.

    No to both answers. But I am glad to see more people joining!


    I summarize the riddle with all hints:


    riddle: curious night party


    hint: of all sizes

    hint: dwarves overslept this event

    hint: participants don´t belong to men, hobbits, elves, dwarves or orcs

    hint: it is from Hobbit (thus 13 dwarves were sleeping, Bilbo was sleeping, too, just not so well)

    I know this is against the rules, but I have two possible creatures that could have been partying:

    Wargs: “I had to walk miles before I found a place where the river was wide and shallow enough for me to wade and swim, and then miles back again to pick up the tracks again. By that time it was too late for me to follow them far. They went straight off in the direction of the pine-woods on the east side of the Misty Mountains, where we had our pleasant little party with the Wargs the night before last.”

    or bears: “The hobbit felt quite crushed, and as there seemed nothing else to do he did go to bed; and while the dwarves were still singing songs he dropped asleep, still puzzling his little head about Beorn, till he dreamed a dream of hundreds of black bears dancing slow heavy dances round and round in the moonlight in the courtyard.”

    Not only do the dwarves have a lot of parties, they also seem to be asleep quite a lot too - again very interesting
    “...and he lived happily ever after, to the end of his days”

    bears - in your quote they are all same.

    And wargs, weren´t they (=Thorin company) running from them instead of sleeping? But this quote is so close, so so close (literally)! Please, try once more!
