Ten days in Buckland as Bilbo tries to convince his relatives that Frodo belongs with him. Significant speculation about minor LOTR characters, and gap-filling on Shire culture, society, politics and economics.
NOTE: I do not write children's stories. I deal with mature topics in all of my works. Expect to find direct presentation of sexuality, politics, violence, economics, and other non-trivial topics.
This story is originally published on my own site, Rómenna. New chapters will appear there first. Read Legacy on Rómenna.

Two weeks in Buckland as Bilbo and Frodo visit during Yule and attend the Wintermark celebration.
Takes place in late-December, 1389, and early January 1390 SR, during the Yule season. Contains a great deal of speculative information about Shire social structure, politics, and economic activity since Bilbo returned from his adventures.
Bilbo and Frodo are main characters. Brandybuck, Took, Bolger, and Burrows relatives show up, and many original characters (OCs), including Dalin, a Dwarf. Mature themes in almost every chapter, descriptions of sexual activity and violence in several chapters. Only G or PG rated excerpts will be posted to AO3.
Not a cheerful feel-good holiday story in any way.
