    Summary

    It’s been fifty years since the retaking of Erebor, and Bilbo Baggins of the Shire has been invited to join in the festivities. Despite his advanced years, he sets out for the faraway kingdom expecting to find old friends, make new memories, and head back West at the end—but things never go quite the way Bilbo wants them to. This time, it may prove to be a good thing.

    Updates on Sundays.

    Summary

    The most terrible thing you can do to a writer, Bilbo is sure, is answer words with silence.

    Sweet-bittersweet, comedy-angst, movie/book fusion. Set in a reclaimed Erebor full of dwarrowdames, political strife, tree plagues, and new Durins -- all brought to you via a completely neutral and factual firsthand account utterly expurgated of bias. Also expurgated of questionable narratorial rambling, curiously tender descriptions, marginalia complaints, annoying sayings, and irrelevant hobbitish asides. Candidly, Master Baggins is just trying to finish this book and go home.

    (In Proper Summary: The one where the dwarves have a matriarchal constitutional monarchy, Thorin has a daughter named Bélah, and Bilbo says he will write tomorrow but doesn't.)
