    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

    This is a plot bunny that has grown and consumed my brain.

    Smaug and the one Ring do not exist. Sauron is just a bad guy with orc armies. 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 and finds a life in the Mountain among royalty. Dori has secrets! And there’s nothing like a fairy-tale of scandal and lost nobility! Expect appearances over the course of the story from Thror, Frerin (who is an utterly spoiled brat - apologies to Frerin worshipers), Dain, Thranduil and his entourage, Bard and the Bardlings, Gandalf, and finally Bilbo and little Frodo.

    This is not a serious story, just a lively romp. Those of you have read my previous epic know I am heavily influenced by Jane Austen and more so by Georgette Heyer’s regencies. There are some shocking bits; fist fights, mentions of past violence, murders, and abortion but in the past and Dwalin and Nori use rather a lot of bad language. This is not at the level of Pride of the Jedi silliness but I do like giving Ori adventures and interesting friends.

    Summary

    Velen has been a terrible idea from the start - Eskel is sure about that as he enters a small inn on a cold and rainy evening. Little does he know that he's in for more than one surprise; and for some big changes ...

    Summary

    A hobbit's honor didn't lie in great deeds, or obedience; it lay in protecting friends and family, despite themselves, no matter the cost. Her dwarves knew that when they adopted her, and ensured that Bilba Baggins knows her rights, as they stood amongst dwarrow. So when some loud-mouthed nobles with Dain's army burst into her tent the day before the battle, she is very much *not* putting up with more nonsense, thank-you-very-much.

    Summary

    A complete re-write of the Hobbit movies, including some things from the book that Jackson left out.

    Bilbo Baggins, a Hobbit who has spent summers with elves since childhood and has a few tricks up his sleeve, is invited on a quest by Gandalf the Grey. Intrigued by the dwarves who show up at his doorstep, he signs on for an adventure, not realizing what awaits him down the road.

    A story of battle, love, friendship, and far more side adventures - including personal ones - than Bilbo could have ever dreamed.

    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

    All her life, Donnabell Took has endured being 'managed' by her grandmother despite her stubborn and somewhat rebellious spirit. She thought the worst had finally occurred when her future life was decided for her.

    But when something long concealed, which should been told to her before, is 'accidentally' revealed, Donnabell finally decides it's enough.

    Summary

    Years after the horror of Smaug and miles away from Erebor, Signí is a young dwarrowess working in her father's shop. As fate would have it, exiled dwarven prince Thorin finds himself living in the same village. Alienated and lonely in the world of humans, the two former childhood friends find themselves in love and finally have a chance to be together... but something sinister is lurking in the shadows. How far would Signí go for the love of her life? Will they create a new life together, or will the madness in Thorin's family prove to be too much?

     

    (This is a headcanon that won't leave me and is my attempt to fill in the years of Thorin's life between the arrival of Smaug and the quest for Erebor. I will try to stay as true to the events in Tolkien's texts as I can while filling in what he doesn't say, though for this story the characters look like they do in the films. Feel free to replace Signí's name in your head or read it more as a Thorin/you type of thing if you want.)

    Summary

    Billa would never be the gentle creature that the hobbits of the Shire had wanted her to be, and that suited her just fine.
    She was no longer a hobbit of the Shire - she was a hobbit of Erebor.
    She had fallen in love with a king, and had that love returned. No other hobbit could say the same, and Billa would never regret it. She had everything that she could possibly want - a family, a lover and a little one on the way.
    But adjusting to life in the mountain, surrounded by dwarves, would have been hard enough without intending to marry their king. Dwarves were an incredibly secretive race, and having a hobbit live among them was odd enough, but having her sworn to their king and carrying his child... To say that some of them didn't approve would be an understatement, though Billa had more pressing things to worry about - like whether or not she was going to be a good mother, and how she could possibly endure being pregnant with a half-dwarven baby.
    She would need all the help she could get.

    The sequel to 'No Respectable Young Lady'.

    Summary

    Summoned to Erebor for his particular talents, Bilbo Baggins (formerly of Bag End) simply meant to explore the East, uncover the cause of old King Thráin's peculiar behaviour, and perhaps cast out a troublesome wraith or two.

    He certainly didn't intend to kidnap the Crown Prince.

    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

    Thorin Oakenshield slowly wakes to the sounds of Bilbo and his nephews talking softly, colder and heavier than he has ever been in his life, but before he can get a word out Bilbo is punching him square on the nose. Quite rightly, as it turns out, because he's been dead for a week and has just sat up in his tomb with no warning whatsoever.

    Following the aftermath of the Battle of the Five Armies where Thorin must fight with his own guilt and mind over his choices and what they mean and meant, where he must decide whether or not to rule, and how to live with himself after dying. Focusing on many different characters and relationships, as well as building on the lore of Erebor and Middle Earth. A story about coming home.

    Summary

    When Fíli catches a dangerous disease, only those who are immune to it due to previous exposure are allowed near. This leads to Ori sitting with him, not that he minds terribly much.

    Who knows, maybe something good will come of it.

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

    Summary

    The deep places of the earth. Vaulted cathedrals filled with Mahal's voice. And the perfect cradle from which to reform two souls; forged anew in synchronous heat and passion...

    Only, things aren't going exactly how Thorin Oakenshield, Reformed King Under The Mountain, dreamed. Bilbo is confoundingly...confused. The bond that is tearing apart his very being is in danger of being snuffed out before it's even had much of a chance to begin, and there is far too much political chicanery than is good for his fraying nerves and temper.

    And orcs. Definitely too many orcs.

    If he is very lucky, he may just manage to woo Bilbo, and possibly save his sanity in the process...

     

    A prompt fill for a Dwarven Courtship story; with lots of feels, a touch of fluff and a mine-cart full of Dwarven culture thrown in for good measure.

    And Nori. Because he'd find a way to steal centre stage, regardless.

    Summary

    Some years after the sack of Erebor (and about 100 something years before the events of The Hobbit), Prince Thorin II and the Dwarves exiled from the Lonely Mountain are making a meagre living in Dunland. Burdened by looming responsibilities and saddened by the suffering of his people, young Thorin is experiencing some self-doubt over his abilities as a leader. Fortunately, he has a special friend, Nyrath, son of Nyr, hot and noble Dwarf in his own right, who is there to give him a nudge in the right direction.
