    Summary

    Bilbo enjoys his quiet existence as a librarian and is perfectly content with living adventure only through books. He's got a nice house and a good job; if his love life is lacking a little, well, that's his own problem and he doesn't let it bother him.

    But then the arrival of an old family friend with a penchant for fireworks and grey clothes puts a definite spanner in the works, and Bilbo suddenly has a boyfriend and is on his way to meet the in-laws.

    Of course, nothing is ever easy for Bilbo Baggins.

    Summary

    In the aftermath of the Battle of the Five Armies, Thorin's belief in Bilbo's betrayal has lessened, but not enough to take back his banishment.

    Bilbo Baggins, accompanied by meddlesome wizard Gandalf, journey back toward the Shire with heavy hearts. When they reach Rivendell, Lord Elrond convinces Bilbo to start a new life amongst the peace and plenty in the Hidden Valley. Bilbo agrees, knowing that the child he carries will be endangered on the road and that the warm welcome and healing expertise of the elves will be just what he needs to start anew.

    However, as part of the new found peace amongst Erebor and its neighboring lands, an envoy is sent to Rivendell in gratitude of the shelter they provided the company of Thorin Oakenshield. In this envoy are several members of said company.

    Faced with this reunion, Bilbo must decide if keeping his secret and thereby preserving his heart from possible hurt is more important than forgiving mistakes and moving on from the past.

    Summary

    When someone takes and sells a shirtless photo of King Thorin II of Erebor without his knowledge or consent, advertisers grab the opportunity and run with it. So does the Internet, and now Erebor's firewall is under siege with everything from marriage proposals to the unprintable. Being a Dwarven king in the age of technology is already a job and a half, and Thorin needs help if he's going to keep from going completely mad.

    Enter Bilbo Baggins, Esquire, belligerent barrister of the Shire. He's small, he's furious, and he's here to help.

    (At least that's what Thorin hopes.)

    Summary

    “It seems that your bravery has done the impossible and sparked a truce between us and the Elves, fragile as it may be.” At this, the Dwarf king smiled wryly. Who would have thought that a soft Hobbit would have so much sway over the two most powerful figures in this region?

    Bilbo Baggins did not respond. He had been deeply unconscious for the past seven days.

    Thorin Oakenshield tried not to let his heart break.

    An AU retelling of the events before, during, and after the Battle, but not necessarily in that order.
