    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

    Fìli and Thorin are dead. Kìli is King Under the Mountain. Erebor is being rebuilt and things are not going well. For starters, the Mountain wakes up one morning and all its masons are dead.

    Kivi Journeyman carries secrets close to her heart. She also happens to be a Stiffbeard - a member of Thulin's Kin from the North and the East, a daughter of a House known for its unmatched skill in masonry. Those among the Men and Dwarves of the West would even call her a "master" mason.

    She needs an ally. He needs a mason. Together, Kìli and Kivi are about to find out that they are more to each than either one would have thought.

    Summary

    A fill for the kink meme prompt asking for Bilbo dealing with his feelings for Thorin after having a very bad run-in with relationships beforehand (the exact prompt can be found in the notes!). Somehow, this turned into a retelling of The Hobbit where Bilbo has a few anxiety issues plus a past relationship gone wrong and somehow in the process falls ass over ankles for a certain pissy Dwarf king.

    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

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

    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

    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

    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

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

    Sweet-Bittersweet, Comedy-Angst full of new Durins and more hobbitish asides than you can shake a stick at. Features a female-centric reimagining of dwarven government, an unbeloved king, four abundantly opinionated princes, one foxish she-elf, and extreme strife in Dale. Candidly, Bilbo is just trying to finish this book and go home.

    Summary

    It takes time for Oaks to grow into their majesty, time for pearls to come into their beauty. Sometimes, it takes even longer to truly forgive.

    Twenty five years after the Battle of the Five Armies, Bilbo is hiding away in a secret Hobbit sanctuary, raising the half-Dwarven children that Yavanna and Mahal blessed him with in the most extraordinary of ways. Thorin is ruling Erebor, trying to raise the half-Hobbit son he ripped from Bilbo's arms in the height of his gold-madness.

    A new evil is rising in Isengard and it will take a broken family coming together to see it defeated, once and for all.

    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

    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.
