    Summary

    The Company shows their affection for Bilbo in accordance with dwarvish tradition. Bilbo... has no idea why everyone keeps giving him gifts.

    (Dwarves give gifts of craft to start friendships or romance. Everybody lives AU, canon-compliant through the first movie.)

    Summary

    Hobbits have the most unusual ability- when they cry, their single tear crystallizes into a colored gem... Bilbo Baggins hasn't felt emotion since the death of his parents decades ago, but being dragged on the quest and thrust into close contact with thirteen dwarves has awakened his emotions with a vengeance. Can he keep a hobbit's most guarded secret from the outsiders he's befriending, and what in the world does he do about the one he may be falling in love with? He really isn't equipped to handle this anymore! Slow build Thorin/Bilbo.

    Close enough to complete that you can treat it as such even though it does feel like there's room for some more denouement and an epilogue.

    Sweet and fulfilling, a nice solid read that focuses more on how Bilbo befriends each of the dwarves than on romance.

    Summary

    “It’s something I’ve been working on, for Thorin. It’s a … chronicle. Of our adventure.” Bilbo thought that would be fine thing for Thorin to have, but suddenly he found himself wondering if it was a suitable gift for a king. “That is… right, isn’t it?”

    “Yes,” Kíli said eagerly. He was practically glowing. “Since you’re not one for dwarven crafts, that is. It’s a work of your hands and a very symbolic one too. It’s perfectly appropriate.”

    Bilbo glanced at Fíli for confirmation, and found him unusually pale. But then, Kíli was elbowing him rather hard and perhaps in a place that was still tender. “Yes,” Fíli agreed at last, and conjured a slow smile. “It’s appropriate.”

    Bilbo's fake-it-'til-you-make-it interpretation of dwarven culture is working quite well for him, thank you very much- all the way up until it really, really isn't.

    Summary

    I took a prompt on the kink meme and ran with it further than requested. Prompt was:

    At some point on the journey, things get a little ugly and battle is done. Bilbo, who still isn't terrific with a sword, is told to hang back or stay somewhere safe. (Or maybe he's guarding the ponies, whatevs.)

    Just before going with them, Bofur takes his hat off. And puts it on Bilbo's head. Because these are the two things he wants to keep safe.

    So, here are the many times Bofur gave Bilbo his hat to keep him safe and happy, and the one time Bilbo took it to make Bofur feel safe and happy.
