    Summary

    Taking Bilbo Baggins, a successful movie actor who is only just getting used to the perks and intricacies of becoming A Face People Want To See, and putting him together with Thorin Oakenshield, with his very traditional (read: slightly backwards) ideas about what constitutes Real Art and Real Talent, might very well be viewed as just some clothead’s idea of a joke. But there are jokes, and then there are carefully calculated risks the size of controversial reproductions of classic Shakespearean plays - for Bilbo, it is the chance of a lifetime to prove himself to all those who have ever deemed him too one-dimensional to even attempt stage, while Thorin has the opportunity to get out of the rut that’s been hindering his career for so long now, and shine in a role worthy of his talent once again. That is if the two learn how to share the same space for more than ten minutes without wanting to tear each other’s hair out. The course of true love never did run smooth, after all…

    Summary

    Bilbo Baggins is not a morning person, so he doesn't really know what's supposed to happen in that magical time before lunch, but even he realizes finding inconveniently shirtless (and inconveniently attractive) strangers sleeping on his couch isn't an everyday occurrence. Written based on this text post off Tumblr - the premise was just too good to pass up. Quick and harmless.

    Summary

    Kodokusan lies far from the capital, and many say its forests and mountains are haunted. Thorin doesn't think so, even if the raccoon he rescued in the forest on his way home appears rather clever. And maybe this rather useful and popular addition to his household would raise more questions, but there is another threat to Kodokusan.

    One that leaves webs in the forest.

    Summary

    Inspired by Shipsicle's superb MerMay art.

    "Thorin kept one arm around Bilbo’s waist and the other cradled the back of his head, his fingers tangled in the curls at his neck as he held him above the swell of waves.

    “Breathe, Bilbo,” he said desperately, the words caught between an order and a plea. “You need to breathe!”"
