This is how I know I've been working in labor rights for too long:

I'm writing this Hobbit fanfic, right, and it seems to have grown some sort of plot. And the plot has a lot to do with the dwarves of Ered Luin being miners and the mine management being dicks and getting people killed, and Bofur accidentally becoming a union organizer because he'd like to not get killed thank you very much? So I woke up around 6 this morning, with this plotline having just come together in my head (please note: this is the background plot -- the story is still about the doomed love of Dwalin and Bofur). And I was thinking this through, and I realized that 1) THERE IS NO MANAGEMENT, THEY ARE DWARVES AND THE KING OWNS THE DAMN MINES and 2) I am probably going to write it anyways because Ered Luin has no king and 3) I need a new job, like, now.

...I am beginning to despair of my ever being able to get Dwalin and Bofur together in this damn thing.

I am no end of amused myself!

Dwalin and Bofur, star-crossed lovers kept apart by union politics.

I would read as much dwarf labor activism as you want to write.

I will happily read labor-organizing plot (or any other kind of plot you come up with) along with relationship-building from you. If that's what wants to be written, I say go for it!
