    Summary

    Bilbo Baggins had walked this earth a total of eight times in his past. He did remember them all, in some form or another, though he could rarely recall their names or faces, or very much detail about their lives at all. He always remembered their deaths, though. And he always remembered how it was someone – a well-meaning wizard, for instance – that had shown up and enticed or blackmailed him away from his home and family to go off and die for the good of the world.

    Much like what was happening now.

    Or: How the dragon soul of Bilbo Baggins made a deal with Manwë and can't seem to escape the consequences, and Thorin Oakenshield looks far too much like one of Bilbo's dead husbands.

    Summary

    Falling in love. To Gimli it seemed an absurd concept, as though loving someone were to be compared to falling into a pond or from a cliff. As if there were any chance of righting yourself, of grasping a nearby tree or shrub and hauling yourself back to your feet and out of danger.

    Summary

    An alt canon post (by 3 centuries) Lord of the Rings fanfic in a steampunk Middle Earth

    Sauron was a much different being than the races of men truly understood. A Maia that possessed a mixture of femininity and masculinity in equal parts, Sauron that was once Mairon was a being of unique gender existence, even among the Maiar. Seduced away from the Valar by Melkor who became Morgorth, she was abused and corrupted by the more powerful being and became his servant. After his fall she sought to make amends by conquering Middle Earth to repair its evils. In all of this a tiny fragment, a remnant of Mairon remained protected and hidden within Sauron safe from corruption, the only part not tied to the One Ring.

    When that Ring was destroyed Sauron was sundered but that remnant remained. A broken Mairon emerged, reduced in power, trapped in a feminine male physical form and forced to rebuild her mind and memories. Her guilt would soon define her and send her on a journey for redemption while she healed the ailments of Arda.

    Taking cue from the Istari, Wizards of Staff & Rod that stood against Mordor, she became The Red Sorceress, seeking to guide and heal, not conquer and force, in a world now much changed.

    Summary

    Three years after she was crowned the Queen of Gondor, Arwen finds Boromir in a small village near the Stone of Erech. Finding him seems easy when compared to her new Quest of bringing the Son of Gondor back home. Sort of fulfils this Arwen/Aragorn/Boromir prompt on hobbit_kink.

    Subtitled “An Exploration of the Problems of a Postwar Gondor”.

    Summary

    AU to both book and movie canon: In the aftermath of the Battle of Five Armies, Thorin is King Under the Mountain, and Bilbo's sacrifice has achieved little. The dwarves of Erebor are wealthy beyond their wildest dreams, but they can't eat gold, and they desperately need food and medicine.

    Proud Thranduil, still stung by the escape of Thorin's company and angered out of reason by Thorin's continued refusal to bargain, will not give aid for nothing. If Thorin will not give gems, Thranduil demands a harsh forfeit: that a young dwarf of Durin's line must be given to him as chattel in lieu of the escaped prisoners. The dwarf is to serve Thranduil's household for 77 years in exchange for what the dwarves require to survive.

    Gimli son of Glóin volunteers himself for this duty. He is given to Legolas Thranduilion, an arrangement that pleases no one.

    As Legolas and Gimli struggle with one another, Sauron rises in the east. He is all too ready take advantage of the prejudices that fester between the free peoples of Middle Earth, and seeks to find and reclaim the One Ring so he may put an end to a the newest unlikely threat to his power: the youthful heir of Elendil.

    Summary

    Let’s talk about a Susan who never moved on, who buried her family in English soil and spent the rest of her life trying to find her way home. She did not believe lions were kind, but she always remembered a bow in her schoolgirl hands.

    She looked in every old wardrobe she came across. It was casual, everyday– the first day in a new lecture hall, she checked the back of the coat closet. Friends had her over for Christmas dinner and she excused herself to go the bathroom, checked every cabinet and closet, and then headed back in for pudding. She went home with a cute boy she met in a smoky little pub and she checked his wardrobe before she headed home the next morning, heels in hand.

    She also went to college, got a political science degree she had to fight for. She got a byline in the local paper, a few ladies’ magazines, then a larger regional publication.

    She had mimosa brunches with friends. She read detective novels, never touched fantasy, and finally one day she stepped through an old stone archway barely thinking about it and–-

    She was standing in a treeless plain, all yellow grass and blue blue skies.

    In the end, Gimli thinks, Legolas will steal his heart and sail away with it, and even the wonders of the Glittering Caves are not enough consolation for that loss. But when Aragorn calls for Gimli’s help in dismantling the hidden traps of Orthanc, everything changes.
