    Summary

    "That first night, when the ridiculous little round door is opened to his knock, he doesn’t even see her, not at first."

    Being an account of the early acquaintance of Thorin II Oakenshield, King Under the Mountain, and Bryony Baggins, Good Thief of Erebor and Green Lady of the Dale, as was never recorded in the Red Book of Westmarch.

    For one thing, there's considerably more shouting.

    Summary

    Great deeds always seemed so much cleaner in the storybooks, when one could transition from 'they won' right over to 'and they all lived happily ever after.' No one ever talked about the calm after the storm, where you worked until you thought you'd drop and cried yourself to sleep every night, or how you could long for home until you were nearly sick with it. No bard sang songs about how hard it could be to live with the consequences of your actions, or warned that even the sweetest of victories could taste like so much ash in your mouth.

    Bryony Baggins has had more than had her fill of adventures. She's riding back to the Shire to her books and her armchair, to dig in her garden and try to heal the tattered edges of her spirit, and though she will of course miss all her dear friends terribly, there's just not enough reasons for her to stay, and far too many calling her home.

    Summary

    Fíli lived his life by an old dwarven proverb: when a fool drops a treasure, a wise man picks it up (it sounded better in the original khuzdul).

    Bella Baggins never quite fit in the Shire. Perhaps she was made for the mountains, instead.

    Summary

    "An adventure?" Billa Baggins, a respectable genteel hobbit of the Shire, shivered and tried to convince herself it was a shudder.

    In which a perfectly proper not-so-young lady whistles her reputation down the wind and finds she really is her mother's daughter.
