    Summary

    Hi, all. Here's a story of Fili and Kili as youngsters.

    It's hard being a big brother to such an odd Dwarf. Kili's unusual looks -- too tall, weird hair, spindly body, and almost no beard -- don't bother Fili, but they certainly bother a right lot of bullies. Even Master Dwalin's extra fighting lessons can't keep Kili from regular beatings, because the bullies have started to gang up on him to do even more damage. This time, Fili's eagerness to try out his new sword leaves Kili unprotected for a few seconds, just long enough for a trio of roughnecks to kick him halfway to oblivion.

    If broken ribs, a concussion, and a gashed cheekbone aren't painful enough, Kili's shame is even more devastating. It makes Fili sick to see such despair in his brother's normally bright eyes. Fili vows that he'll put a stop to his brother's abuse, no matter what he has to do.

    The question is, what should he do?

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

    Summary

    Having fallen in love over the course of their quest, Legolas and Gimli undertake a journey to Erebor in order to make their union official in the eyes of the dwarves. Far from the family affair that they had planned, however, they soon find themselves in the middle of a very public, very politically charged wedding ceremony with a massive guest list and bad blood on both sides.

    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

    Newly married and blissfully in love, Kíli and Tauriel only want a babe to complete their happiness. Yet bearing a child the likes of which Middle-earth has never seen may prove more dangerous than they thought. Especially when displeased dwarves would do anything to keep half-elven kings off the throne, even commit high treason against the line of Durin by assassinating a prince. Beset by challenges from within and without, Tauriel and Kíli will find that "happily ever after" is not as simple as it sounds!

    Summary

    In a world where Omegas take multiple mates to form a den pack, and Alphas compete for an Omega's attention and interest to prove themselves worthy of joining the den pack. Where Betas keep everyone else grounded and basically know better, and where Gandalf really shouldn't withhold information. Even for his own amusement.

    Or, where Bilbo is an Omega, but never presented, and a good portion of the company are unbonded Alphas, who assume he is a bland Beta, which isn't their fault, as he assumes he will present as a Beta when he does finally present. And then he does present as an Omega, and all hell breaks loose.

    What is Bilbo to do with so many dwarven suitors all of a sudden? And what effect will this have on the quest?

    Summary

    A lodestone is the focus of attention or attraction, a magnet centering the stones around it into their natural places.
    Many dwarves liken the feeling of discovering their One to the feeling of a pull, the tug of a lodestone, leading them home.

    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

    “For things are made to endure in the Shire, passing from one generation to the next.” – Fellowship of the Ring
    Hobbits are not what the others races believe. Crafted by the Valar and blessed with inherited magics called knacks, Hobbits have been ensuring the peace between the Free Peoples for a long time. No one else knows and Hobbits are content to keep it that way. However, years ago Shire life was disrupted by the marriage of Gerontius Took to Adamanta Chubb, originally known as the dragon Arradeth. Years later Bilbo Baggins is paying the price of being an odd hobbit, having inherited both Took and Baggins knacks along with his grandmother’s blood, and is the only one of her line to also have a dragon form. Now Gandalf the Grey is once again in need of a hobbit for an adventure and Bilbo must decide. Should he accompany the wizard and his group, face a dragon, and risk revealing Shire and family secrets? Or does he abandon his people’s sacred purpose and allow a stubborn king to send part of Middle Earth into war? Not to mention that if Bilbo does go he risks not only his life, but losing his dragon Heart to a band of suicidal dwarves. Either way, the choice of Bilbo Baggins may rule the fate of all Middle Earth.

    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.

    What Bilbo finds beneath the nightmare that is Goblin Town will bring many changes to the story, because things are not always as they seem, and sometimes you need to be told the view of the 'other side' to learn the truth.
     

    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

    I have a soft spot for all kinds of love confessions - the sweet and tender ones, the hilarious ones, the ones that involve little nudges from friends, in short: all beautiful possibilities our favourite ship offers. And it seems that many that come to my mind won't leave until they're written down ... which is why I decided to put them together in a collection of one shots!

    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

    "Now it is a strange thing, but things that are good to have and days that are good to spend are soon told about, and not much to listen to; while things that are uncomfortable, palpitating, and even gruesome, may make a good tale, and take a deal of telling anyway" – The Hobbit, A Short Rest

    According to Bilbo Baggins' writings, the Company of Thorin Oakenshield spent two weeks in Rivendell – two weeks that Thorin and his Dwarvish companions would prefer not to talk about.

    After a particular spell goes awry, Bilbo and Gandalf are suddenly saddled with thirteen baby Dwarves. They can only return to normal at the end of fourteen days. The real problem is that they age up every three days.

    It's one thing to handle babies, but can Bilbo and Gandalf deal with troublesome Dwarf toddlers, unruly children, rebellious and broody teenagers, and spirited young adults in the space of fourteen days?

    Summary

    He was unlike the other hobbits, and he knew it. Yet he was loved by many in the Shire, but there were still two graves in his back yard and a heavy weight on his chest. Maybe by helping another reclaim their home, he can reclaim his life on the way.
