    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

    In a world where Omegas take multiple mates to form a den pack, and Alphas compete for an Omega's attention and interest to prove themselves worthy of joining the den pack. Where Betas keep everyone else grounded and basically know better, and where Gandalf really shouldn't withhold information. Even for his own amusement.

    Or, where Bilbo is an Omega, but never presented, and a good portion of the company are unbonded Alphas, who assume he is a bland Beta, which isn't their fault, as he assumes he will present as a Beta when he does finally present. And then he does present as an Omega, and all hell breaks loose.

    What is Bilbo to do with so many dwarven suitors all of a sudden? And what effect will this have on the quest?

    Summary

    Thorin wasn't always so dark and brooding...

    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.)

    Summary

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

    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

    This little story, or big depending on how you look at it, is not something that you would expect to hear about. It is not a story of great deeds, or about a great hero. She wasn't a hero. She was a fisher from Alaska doomed to a life she never would have chosen and quest that wasn't even hers. Her adventure was entirely unexpected. Or at least, that's how the story went.

    Part of series, but acts as a stand alone.

    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

    Medûnost:
    unbearded, beardless.

    There is more to Bilbo Baggins than meets the eye. Gandalf probably deserves the brunt of the blame.

    In which Dwarrow families work differently than any other race. Where kin are more important than any treasure, quest, or legacy; kin are your legacy.
