    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 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

    It didn't start well with the Easterling Thief. First she took dinner, then the handkerchief. Too soon her Dog's teeth latched onto Thorin's wrist, and this one who said she was not of Middle-earth, who claimed to know their future as if it were written in books, stole her way into his Company. Thorin had no time for it, not while the Dragon kept his people from their homeland. Eventual Thorin/Sona. Beta'd by JennyWren28.
    Adventure/romance.

    Biriz Akmâth: A Companion Story to "On the Road to Find Out" by JennyWren28.

    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

    After the Battle of Five Armies Thorin and Company have a new task: rebuilding their reclaimed home. Suddenly Bilbo finds himself up to his ears in responsibility and he surprises himself with how well he can navigate negotiations with elf dignitaries, farmers in Dale, and a dwarf king who has patience for neither.

    But as Spring approaches a caravan from the Blue mountains brings something everyone had nearly forgotten: the dwarf woman Thorin promised his hand to many years ago.

    Which is fine. It's all fine. It wasn't like Bilbo was falling in love with the king or anything.

    That would be tragic.

    Summary

    “If Morgoth takes away your right hand, you learn to fight with your left. If he takes your left hand, you kick him. And if he takes your legs, you learn to fight with your teeth.”

    A story of the end, and everything that comes after.

    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

    Three young woman in their early twenties get themselves in Middle Earth and they have no idea why or how. Maybe because of some sort of magic? Or because of Valars? Well, Ellie, Vera and Miliyana start their adventure with Bilbo, Gandalf and 13 dwarfs to reclaim Erebor. And this is when everything is getting just more complicated.

    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.

    Summary

    By the governing law of the Shire, Bilbo Baggins found himself Thain and reluctant diplomat of the hobbits; which, perhaps he wouldn't have minded if the circumstance's were different. Although seeing as he should have been several times removed before he were to obtain such a title, a desolation had befallen Hobbiton and they found themselves without a home and many without their family.

    Yet, with no way to return to the rolling hills of the Shire, Bilbo Baggins found himself in quite the situation indeed; arranged by lords and royalty, to honour aged treaties and debts of old: his hand to be given off to a king he's never met, for the security and safety of his people, and never in all his years would he have thought his life to come to this.

    Summary

    The most terrible thing you can do to a writer, Bilbo is sure, is answer words with silence.

    Sweet-bittersweet, comedy-angst, movie/book fusion. Set in a reclaimed Erebor full of dwarrowdames, political strife, tree plagues, and new Durins -- all brought to you via a completely neutral and factual firsthand account utterly expurgated of bias. Also expurgated of questionable narratorial rambling, curiously tender descriptions, marginalia complaints, annoying sayings, and irrelevant hobbitish asides. Candidly, Master Baggins is just trying to finish this book and go home.

    (In Proper Summary: The one where the dwarves have a matriarchal constitutional monarchy, Thorin has a daughter named Béla, and Bilbo says he will write tomorrow but doesn't.)

    Summary

     

    In time of great change a Prophet is born, selected by one of the Valar. When Bilbo is born, he had the markings of the Prophet but it was not One of the Valar that had chosen him, it was all.

    Summary

    You are war torn, war ravaged, and war made. Your blood beats more like drums and boots on the path to death than that of the old dwarf you are. Your name is Bloodshed, Orc-filth, and Exiled. Your name has been removed forcefully, as was your home and beard.
    You're at the end of your life, an old dam well past her adventuring days.
    You have been requested to accompany the heirs to an insignificant kingdom to a very significant meeting. Should you fail, should they die, you have been guaranteed an end fit for the traitor you are.
    There's no way you thought this would be easy, but you hoped it would a be reasonable journey across the wild lands. Then comes a prince with a pack of trouble, from wargs to elves to a fucking wizard following him.
    Goddamn.

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

    Summary

    Nori, son of Ri, had always lived his life in the shadows...trying to protect the one's he love from hardships. One day while out on one of his clandestine business trips he is captured and tortured in numerous ways. With all the skill and tenacity he possess he manages to escape...but not without acquiring a small token of his short stay.

    Dwalin has always stood strong against the forces that would bring harm to those he was entrusted in protecting from the many faces of evil. A stalwart companion to the King of Erebor and a fierce guardian of justice that upholds the law to the highest level...never compromising his duty or beliefs.

    One day both men's world will change as an unexpected package arrives on the very doorsteps of Erebor and both men will be required in protecting this priceless treasure from harm that is coming. Along the way they will have to find a way to stop fighting as they evade danger and ancient laws ....maybe then they will come to understand the true meaning of family and find love in each other's arms once and for all.

    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

    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.
