    Summary

    "Magic?" Peter let's out an all-too amused snort. "That's all just balderdash and chicanery... No, I'm afraid we don't know a bloody thing." He grins when the others all raise a brow to him. "Except that I seem to be very well-spoken... And a man." He seems very happy about both of those things, if the smug grin is anything to go by.

    Summary

    Thorin Durinson, head of Durinson & Company, an architectural firm specializing in environmentally responsible design and restoration, focuses all his creative abilities on his work and his affection on his family and old friends. And then one grey day, a woman in a red coat literally walks into his life, and just like that, everything changes.

    Inspired by a prompt from lostunderthemountain on Oct. 11th, based on this gorgeous photoset.

    ME: Mmm, rolled up sleeves, and who are you looking at, dearie, in that last frame?

    lostunderthemountain: OH! Modern AU in New York: Thorin Durinson is the is the Head of a global company that is continually under threat from Smaug’s (cause like they differ on many opinions or something….).

    Anyway, one morning he’s getting out of a taxi outside of the company’s building when he catches sight of one Miss Bella Baggins (not that he knows her name) and instantly his world freezes…until Fili shoves him to try to get him to move…

    Title from Lord Byron's poem "She Walks in Beauty"

    Summary

    Billa Baggins, formerly respectable Hobbit of the Shire and former Master Burglar of the Company of Thorin Oakenshield, banished from Erebor for deeds meant to protect those she loved, never expected to discover that she carried something far more precious than any gem from the Lonely Mountain.

    She also never expected that, one morning some years after her leaving, she'd find several of her dwarven friends standing at her door, happily inviting her back to the mountain. But Billa has been hiding a secret in the long years since leaving the mountain. A secret that is more precious, even to the dwarves, than all the gold in Erebor. Than anything in all of the world. Can she risk taking such a treasure back to a place that haunts her darkest dream? Can she risk being so near the one who very nearly destroyed it all before it had even begun?

    Summary

    Penny can't let Gwen Stacy die.

    She won't. A lot of people say they'd do anything to keep the person they love. Most of the time, they aren't asked to find out just how far they're willing to go or just how much 'anything' might cost.

    Of course, most people aren't Spider-man. Most people don't have the options she does.

    But there's deciding to resort to desperate measures, and then there's living with the results afterward....
