    Summary

    The Shire is spread out at Bilbo’s feet like a green duvet that stretches out as far as the eye can see. The air is full of birdsong and the indistinct murmur of a small town; conversation, laughter, and squabbling all blending together into a single cohesive whole.

    Bilbo stands on young strong legs without thinking and takes three shaking steps away from the polished flagstone that makes up the front step of Bag End.

    There is Farmer Maggot driving a herd of geese to market and there, there is Hamfast Gamgee tramping down Bagshot Row looking like a tween again with a flask of Gamgee rotgut poking out his back pocket. He is surrounded by faces and voices he knows, all of whom should be older and altered. Many of which should be dead.

    ‘Is this the undying land?’ Bilbo wonders and pinches himself. It feels real. It feels too real. If feels… familiar.

    Bilbo gets sent back from the Undying Lands for one last try. Sometimes perspective makes all the difference.

    Summary

    More than anything, Mike Taylor wanted to be ordinary. Being a genius, he learned early in life, meant people expected too much. A career at the MI6 Help Desk seemed the perfect way to guarantee a lifetime of obscurity, until he got a very unusual tech support call.

    Summary

    “John – John? Wake up.”

    John peels his eyelids apart and lifts his head from where it had settled between the car’s headrest and the rattling window with a groan. It takes him a moment to realise that the window isn’t rattling anymore, and then he nearly pitches out headfirst when Sherlock opens his door without warning.

    “John, come on!”

    When had they pulled over? When had Sherlock gotten out of the car?

    “Urhhhh,” John says, rather eloquently, he feels, undoing his seatbelt. After two botched attempts, he manages to make his hands coordinate to push the release button and pull the strap in a useful way, and then he’s finally stumbling out of the car, his feet sinking – sinking? – into –

    “Sand?”
