    Summary

    A young witch working at Flourish and Blotts comes across an old parchment written in a strange language after a tenuous day at work. Through unknown magic, she crosses a veil into a strange new world and finds herself stranded in the company of a strange grey wizard and a band of dwarves who can't even understand a single word she says.

    Thorin/OC, slow build. Canon/Lore wise on both fandoms. Language Barrier/Realistic situation (Westron vs English).

    Summary

    Rule #1: Kiss your commodities goodbye. Tampons, penicillin, even cheeseburgers—you name it, and Middle-Earth probably doesn’t have it.

    Rule #2: If possible, find Hobbits. They might be a little suspicious of you at first, but they’re reliably the nicest people you’ll ever meet. Once they warm up to you, they’ll happily insist on feeding you a proper seven meals a day… sometimes more. Just watch out for the ceilings.

    Rule #3, and, why Rule #2 is so important: Be prepared for the language barrier. The peoples of Middle-Earth are widely varied and speak many languages, none of which you will find on Earth. Whether it be Westron, Sindar, Rohirric, Khuzdul, Dalish, or Entish, be ready to spend long hours bent over a book. Long hours.

    And perhaps most importantly, Rule #4: Know that this is just the beginning: because if your journey ends up being anything like mine, you’re going to have to worry about a lot more than just running water…

    Summary

    Bilba Baggins knows tricks, has used them herself to fascinate fauntlings and provoke respectable types into unreasonable actions, while keeping her own eyes clear on the path she desires, on keeping Padlin's path clear of threats and uprisings from how things had once been in the Shire under another Thain's rule; has danced with words and flirtation and led the Shire, trembling, gasping, into the world whilst walking backwards and thinking eyes on me, eyes on me all the way. Bilba Baggins was a being of tricks, cobbled together in ruins and blood on snow to soften blows, to trade barbs like flashes of steel and -- above all else -- to serve a better hobbit than her grandfather had been. Then she ever had the chance to be.

    Bilba Baggins the Clever, the Deft-Hand, the Kindly One and the Cruel One and the Right Hand. Mad Baggins. Baggins of Bag-End. Took of Tookland. Disturber of the Peace. Dog, the Thain's Dog.

    Summary

    "Time is an enhancement of Being. Never before has it been altered, and never again shall it."

    So says he who utters unto Eragon Shadeslayer his eternal destiny. The winds of time, wrought by magic, transfix and envelop all in their path. A Rider and his dragon are now bound to Middle-Earth, with the muted knowledge and desire that they have a Fellowship to aid, and a Dark Lord to destroy.

    Summary

    Summary

    After the battle of five armies and the death of Thorin Oakenshield, Kíli's life changes drastically. Together with an exiled she-elf (well, his exiled she-elf), he ends up in an unlikely place: The Shire.
    This is the story of how a certain dwarf came to live in the Shire, hidden from his kin and rarely visited by the King under the mountain. And yes, there will be fluff, a little drama and probably some baby dwelfs!

    Summary

    Bilbo Baggins' family is happy and peaceful and everyone in the Shire is wonderful, until they're not.

    This is really a head canon that i made up that involves some seriously messed up crap, and the beginning has nothing to do with Kili/Bilbo but i promise there will be some later. Also in this story, the Shire folk really aren't as peaceful as they seem and if you like this story i would sincerely appreciate it if you gave it a Kudos or something. Sorry for rambling, enjoy the story!

    All are at one now, roses and lovers.

    In the air now soft with a summer to be.

    Summary

    For one-hundred-and-eleven years, Bilbo Baggins dwelt in Bag End, in Hobbiton of the Shire, save for a brief journey into the Wide World. This is his story. BOOK-VERSE!



    My thanks to Baranduin for the nice banner of young Bilbo, made with a picture of a young Martin Freeman, and to knowmefirst for the large banners and chapter headings, done for the wipbigbang.

    Summary

    "Thorin was the essence of so many Buckland oddities, distilled into one misfortunate young hobbit, much to his infinite embarrassment.

    Built like a stork, his father had said once, in an example of Thrain Brandybuck’s usual tactless humour. All beak and legs."

    Thorin Brandybuck, just recently come of age, still lives in his family’s smial in Buckland, with his parents and two younger siblings. Thorin is an odd duck amongst his relations and neighbours-- unsociable, grumpy, shy, and awkward. And beyond that, he looks rather strange even for a Bucklander, strongly favouring the thick, dark haired build of his Stoorish blood.

    It defies all sense and reason why Bilbo Baggins, an exemplar of all the respectable traits Thorin lacked, would ever desire a friendship with him.

    Bilbo, as Thorin discovers, is not always as sensible as he appears.
