    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?

    Summary

    There are many trials for a hobbit attempting to make a life among dwarves. A hobbit wants a garden. A hobbit wants to eat regular meals. A hobbit wants friends, good books, and comfortable chairs. Bilbo does his best to carve out a little hobbit life for himself in the mountain. If only there were not one final obstacle. For a hobbit heart wants love, and among dwarves that is a sticky subject.

    Summary

    She turned her eyes to him. Their eyes met and woman drowned in their blueness. They were like the ocean. Deep, dark and mysterious. Beatrice was drowning, but only by looking in his eyes she felt she was breathing. She didn't understand how she could do such a thing: look at Thorin as if he had all the answers to her questions, as if he was air, when she had John?

    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

    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

    Three years after the adventure that took the Baggins twins to Erebor and back, life still has not quite settled. Bag End has gained two dwarves, but lost much of its luster and the little family is hanging together by one fraying thread. An invitation to a wedding might be the perfect way to bring people together, but bringing them together could also be the thing that tears them apart for good.

    Summary

    The Past casts long shadows in the hearts of Dwarrow, Men, and Elves.
    With a little understanding, many things might be different in the lives of the Children of Mahal.
    A story of courage, love, and a touch of darkness.
    A "What if?"-story that found its nascent beginning in the question "What if Celebrimbor had a child with Narví?" and wouldn't let me go.
    This story focuses on the events of the Hobbit, with a multitude of side-stories forming the rest of the series.

    (You don't have to be a Dworin-shipper to enjoy this, btw) 

    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

    A fifteenth member joins the company of Thorin Oakenshield. She is a well-trained, experienced warrior dwarf, the adopted daughter of Thror's General and Dwalin's perfect match. But both of their strong sense of duty get in the way of their happiness. Follows the story of the Hobbit and continues afterward. Aspects of LOTR, but probably won't get all the way.

    Summary

    While fixing her beard braids at Isengard, Gimli teaches Legolas a little of Dwarven culture and Legolas almost crosses a line.

    Warning for a somewhat suggestive description of beard touching and a complete disregard for movie-Gimli's actual beard style.

    Summary

    Bilbo Baggins is considered 'unfortunate' from birth, neither fully male nor female but rather too much of both. His life is not hard and at his age no one would dare be outwardly cruel but neither is it a happy life. When a wizard comes to offer him an adventure, and more, he can't help but weigh it against the life he has and find it...tempting. And so begins a wholly different tale of courting, mating, stubborn dwarf kings, plotting nephews, and heartfelt attempts to not die before seeing the end of the story.

    Summary

    With the Battle of the Five Armies coming to a close, there is a temporary settle of peace among the lands.

    Thorin is hailed as King Under the Mountain and with him the Company becomes his royal guard; The Thanes of Erebor. Although peace is to be had, there is still tension in the air as the mounting of politics between Dale and Mirkwood rise, Thorin finds himself in a conundrum in dealing with the melodramas of the Company that have grown irate due to the personal discourse to be had between them all.

    The King soon discovers that the crown is indeed very heavy upon the head, but with such burdens and responsibilities he discovers that sometimes it isn't all too bad. Sometimes it's good being the King.

    Summary

    Atina is NOT a fan of the hobbit franchise. She hated every second she spent suffering through it. As far as she's concerned, the entire world can be swallowed up in a giant fiery dragon burp. So WHY is she the one tasked with going on this 'adventure'? She sure as day doesn't want to be here and no one else wants her here either but HERE she is.. with no intention to fix a thing.
