    Summary

    …But then to wake and find it flown,
    The dream of happiness destroyed,
    To find myself unloved, alone,
    What tongue can speak the dreary void?

    Summary

    When Bilbo Baggins meets Thorin Oakenshield in Bag End one late-Spring evening, he doesn't know that he's getting himself into. Neither does Thorin. Either of them realize what an impact their marriage will have for Thorin's family, either.

    Or that Bilbo can give Thorin a family of his own.

    -

    This is a story about found families, dwarven braiding practises, fluffy romance (with a dash of angst), bonding, knitting, gardening and how everything can be solved over a nice cup of tea and a talk. And of how Bilbo finds a new home and family in Erebor.

    ... and dwobbits and dwarflings. :3

    Summary

    After the battle, Kili has kept his meetings with Tauriel secret. Yet with a fierce snowstorm looming, he would rather dare the inevitable discovery of their feelings than leave the exiled elf unsheltered on the mountainside. Will he have to choose between his kindred and the elf?

    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

    Dwalin and Nori are singularly special among most Dwarrows due to the fact that they've technically been wed twice, but only to each other, of course.

    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

    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. All of part 1, 2 and 3 have now been republished here. Part 4 is work in progress. I will confirm when new chapters will be published.

    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

    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

    When you said you wanted to travel, you hadn't really considered Middle-Earth a viable destination. Since it was fictional. And in a book. And FICTIONAL.

    However, given the number of dwarves you'd encountered recently, you'd probably have to reconsider that. Or, at the very least, your sanity.

    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

    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

    Nori is happy and complacent in his life, married to Dwalin and bearing their first child, just on the cusp on Dwalin braiding his bearing braids in.

    Too complacent, as people from Nori's past come calling their debts, not really caring for Nori's marriage beads either.

    Their happy tomorrow never comes.

    Summary

    “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single dwarf in possession of good fortune must be in want of their One.” –Dwarven proverb

    Life in the Shire is turned upside down when a party of dwarves from the distant eastern kingdom of Erebor come to stay for the summer.

    What should be a simple, ceremonial quest for Prince Kíli to find his One grows quite a bit more complicated when he realizes that his other half is not only not a dwarf, but one of his family’s oldest sworn enemies.
