    Summary

    (Re-write of a fic named 'we shall not rest, nor find peace)
    When a Dwarf loses their One, their want for anything else is consumed by grief. Stopping death can stop further grief, but this causes more than just heartbreak.

    Summary

    There were a few common misconceptions that often occurred when others met the Princes of Erebor.

    Mistakes as simple as these were often not just the stem, but the root of multiple problems between the princes themselves and others. It would be a testament to this statement to record multiple of the goings-on that occurred under the mountain once Erebor was finally restored wherein many learned just how dangerous a misconception can be.

    Summary

    He made a promise, and she returned it. But in trying to save Kíli's life, she caused his death. Or so Tauriel thinks until she returns to Erebor to throw herself on the mercy of her unborn child's only kin and discovers that sometimes love outlasts death. But can it remain unchanged by the harsh realities of life?

    Given a second chance to keep their promise, Kíli and Tauriel must face their greatest battle yet. One that can't be fought with physical weapons. A battle of the heart.

    Summary

    Fíli and Kíli have spent decades searching for the last piece of their hearts, but meeting Bilbo is just the beginning of the tale. Because hobbits believe in love, not destiny and someone else catches their burglar's eye.

    Summary

    Dwalin Fundin/Ori Ri, Dwalin/Ori, Dwori, Balin Fundin/Dori Ri, Balin/Dori, Darlin. Soon Nori/Bofur, Eventual Fili/Sigrid, and Kili/Tauriel, Several OC dwarrows. Eventual Thorin Oakenshield/Bilbo Baggins, Thilbo, Bagginshield,
    Ori of the Brothers Ri is a freelance scribe in the poorest part of the City of Dale. He rushes to rescue his trouble-making elder brother Nori and finds a life, romance and food in the Mountain among royalty. Dori has secrets! And there’s nothing like a fairy-tale of scandal and lost nobility! The story is completely from Ori’s point of view. Expect appearances from Thror, Frerin (who is an utterly spoiled brat - apologies to Frerin worshipers), Lady Galadriel, Thranduil and practically everyone else. This is totally safe for Dain fans!
    Smaug never hatched and Isildur listened to Elrond (somebody has to) and the one Ring no longer exists. Sauron is just a bad guy with orc armies.
    There are some serious bits, but mostly it’s just a lively romp with food. Did we mention the food?

    Summary

    The Baggins twins, Briallen and Bilbo, have spent their whole lives taking care of each other. So when the world outside makes an (uninvited) appearance, only one thing is certain. Not for wizard or king or mountain or dragon will the two of them part. Not if they have one word to say about it.
    And besides, as Gandalf points out: It never hurts to have a spare burglar on hand.

    Summary

    The Battle of the Five Armies is over and all Nori wants is to see if Dwalin survives. Ori is there for the ride, but with his own agenda, as he really would like to see a Durin of his own as having survived.

    Summary

    Belladonna Took was never one to lead a quiet and meek life, so when Gandalf and a company of dwarves came to her with adventure on their lips, she didn't hesitate to help them retake their mountain. Along the way she fell in love with the tumultuous Thorin Oakenshield, but when the gold madness seized him, she was banished from Erebor in disgrace.

    It was quite the scandal when she returned to the Shire and gave birth to her half-dwarven baby, Bilbo.

    But that, dear readers, is only the beginning of this story.

    For evil lurks in so many places. It lurks in genes of a noble family surrounded by their wealth. It lurks in creatures born to shadow.

    And unfortunately for our heroes, evil lurks in the hearts of those they call family and friend. After one of the Shire's own does the unthinkable, 6-year-old Bilbo is cast out into the wintry world alone.

    Yet all hope is not lost. For Bilbo has a dwarven father he doesn't even know of. A father who is a king. A king who is returning to the Shire.

    Summary

    A mysterious voice in the deep.
    A piece of history long forgotten.
    A Mountain of trouble.
    A Forest of Darkness.

    With a little understanding, many things might be different in the lives of the Children of Mahal.

    Written from a belief that everyone, even an aloof Elvenking and a belligerent Dwarf-King, have reasons for their behaviours, which might not always be apparent, nor based on facts.  

    For Azi, who always loved a good story and enjoyed the previews enough for me to post it here. I hope you like it, ye crazy Scotsman!

    Summary

    The cleansing blackness had no rhyme or reason, only a single unending truth... and then, with the return of the Song, Bilbo Baggins was himself again, an age ago, before the greatest adventure of his life.

    Perhaps, if he plays his cards well, his wrongs can be righted before they even happen.

Years later, Bilbo Baggins embarks on a journey to Erebor in a desperate attempt to find aid in reclaiming his homeland.

    Summary

    In the weeks since the battle, Kili has kept his meetings with Tauriel secret. Yet when a fierce snowstorm looms, he would rather dare Thorin's displeasure than leave the exiled elf unsheltered on the mountainside. Once Tauriel enters Erebor, of course, it is only a matter of time before her feelings for the dwarven prince are discovered. And despite Kili's hope that there is a place in his life for all those he loves, he may soon have to decide whether his loyalties lie with his kindred or an elf.

    Summary

    This little story, or big depending on how you look at it, is not something that you would expect to hear about. It is not a story of great deeds, or about a great hero. She wasn't a hero. She was a fisher from Alaska doomed to a life she never would have chosen and quest that wasn't even hers. Her adventure was entirely unexpected. Or at least, that's how the story went.

    Part of series, but acts as a stand alone.

    Summary

    It’s a marriage of convenience, a way to forever strengthen the bond between the Dwarves of Erebor and the people of Dale.

    Or so Sigrid tells herself.

    Summary

    Came up with a prompt for myself: "What if Thorin Oakenshield was, in fact, a day early, rather than a few hours later than everyone else?"

    Feel free to take that prompt and go nuts. Go and do better, greater things than I am able.

    EDIT: I will be dismantling and reworking this piece, chapter by chapter, soon. I wish I could give a definitive timeframe, but I want to plan properly. Thanks to all those who stick with me and leave me such lovely comments.
