    Summary

    When Legolas volunteered to join the Fellowship, he knew that there would be a Dwarf in it. What he did not know was that said Dwarf would never wash, consequently smell like wild boar, and constantly take offence at everything.
    And then the Lady Galadriel forms a favourable opinion of Gimli, and suddenly, Legolas does not know what to believe anymore.

    Gimli has a secret. A secret that means that washing at some stream would be a terribly bad idea, and being blindfolded for an entire day is a really, really, really bad thing. Fortunately, Galadriel understands.

    Summary

    In another lifetime, it is the Shire that is attacked and stolen by a dragon for reasons unknown. Years later, Bilbo Baggins embarks on a journey to Erebor in a desperate attempt to find aid in reclaiming his homeland. But once there, he finds that taking on a dragon will be the least of his concerns as he struggles through trials, his own identity, and the King Under the Mountain.

    Summary

    Ever since he found out his One was killed, Thorin has blamed hobbits. Hobbits are petty, small minded and behind that politesse, cruel. With each year that passes that he cannot fulfill the promise he made to his One, Thorin blames them a little more. He's tired of being thwarted by the council, tired of the rumours of madness and he feels desperate. Desperate enough to accept the help of weed smoking wizard and her hobbit agent.

    Ever since he returned to the Shire, Bilbo Baggins has hated hobbits. He drinks his tea, wears his weskit, and does what he can to help those like himself, while fighting against attitudes that haven't changed in eighteen years. He doesn't think about the letters in his glory box, nor the dagger collecting dust in his study. And he most certainly doesn't think about dwarves, not even when a weed smoking wizard comes by asking him to go on adventure.

    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

    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

    It didn't start well with the Easterling Thief. First she took dinner, then the handkerchief.

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.

    Summary

    “...What if the dream was wrong? What if nothing awaits me there?”

    Thorin could feel three pairs of hands on his shoulders and back, pressing firmly with reassurance and conviction that he did not feel and desperately needed in that time. He could almost hear the smile in Dis’ voice as she said

    “You’ve had the Dream. Mahal has spoken. It is time to meet your One.”

    Summary

    Wynn is a 'seeker'. She finds things that no regular person can find. Her sense with finding objects that are tethered to beings is considered 'unique'. Others consider it to be 'demons work' since her kind isn't treated as well as the other races in the lands. When a stranger shows up and offer riches beyond her wildest dreams, she sets forth to collect the things the stranger needs. However, if she knew what she was signing up for, she would have never taken the contract.

    Summary

    Fourteen Dwarves and a Hobbit set off to a quest to reclaim a homeland and slay a dragon. Bilbo Baggins is possibly the most unlikely creature to take part in such a journey as the Company’s burglar, which won’t pass unnoticed by the Company’s leader, Thorin Oakenshield.

    In the meantime Thorin’s brother, Frerin, notices his brother’s growing interest in their burglar and like all good brothers, he has to do something about it, while trying to figure out his own feelings for a certain someone, and look after his and Thorin's sister-children.

    And it is vital that Dís and Dáin never get to hear about anything that happens during the quest, otherwise they'll never let anyone hear the end of it.

    Summary

    You know the world is on it's head when the only one on board with your interracial gay marriage is the ultra closed off conservative Elf-King Thranduil of all people...

    With two overprotective Elven Princes on one side and an entire mountain of distant dwarf relations on the other, they were going to be lucky to get to the wedding at this rate. Maybe Legolas was right and they should have just eloped after all...

    Summary

    The Company of Thorin Oakenshield survives the Battle of Five Armies, but not without a cost. Thorin lies unconscious, Fíli is struggling with his injuries and the burden of playing Regent, and Ori may have taken on more than he can handle, while others are all dealing with their own pains and fears and secrets. It's not only dwarves in the mountain, of course, not after the battles they have fought, and Bilbo and Tauriel are struggling to find their place in the middle of dwarves with all their secrets and traditions and surprises.

    It might seem overly important in the moment to find out who wears a particular braid or what gender they happen to be, yet in the end only a few things remain. As long as you know your family, your love, and your king, everything else will sort itself out.

    If it seems like you might be the king... well. Then there may be another thing or two you need to concern yourself with.

    Summary

    Once upon a time the Longbeards of the Lonely Mountain used to live by a strict code of cultural and religious conduct. But Thorin is not his grandfather. His people have suffered great losses and hardship since the dragon came and as they have resettled halfway across the world he has allowed them a little more freedom than perhaps some approve of. But when the exiled King under the Mountain finds himself falling hopelessly in love with his very own nephew he knows that even he will not be immune from prosecution if anyone were to find out his dirty secret. And it could cost him and his secret lover their heads.

    ----
    This is a part-republished work, however, if you liked the story the first time round, I strongly ask you to read it again from the start as I have added a lot of new and additional things that give more background to where I am taking this story. New chapters start from chapter 42.
