    Summary

    Bilbo interrupts an argument between Bombur and Dwalin to explain the hobbit approach to ancestral weaponry, and the insanity of more or less the entire Took line.

    Or: why frying pans are a hobbit's weapon of choice.

    Summary

    After the Fellowship have set out, Elrond and Bilbo discuss rings, and kings, and things that are more important than treasures, no matter how wicked and lovely and persuasive they may be.

    Summary

    Thorin Oakenshield was born without the longing, and has spent his whole life merely observing others as they pursued a feeling unknown to him until they finally found their One. He has made his peace with the prospect of being alone, and has been faring well enough, but little does he know the fates have a different story in store for him.

    Summary

    Thorin doesn’t move his arm at first when Bilbo tries to wiggle out from under it.

    “I have to make water!” Bilbo protests in a voice thin and squeaky with sleep and Thorin lets him up with a put upon sigh.

    “If you fall in, I won’t be the one to fetch you.” The dwarf grumbles and hunkers back down to sleep, but still watches Bilbo stumble towards the door.

    It’s chilly outside, which feels good against Bilbo’s sleep-flushed skin. His clothes fit strangely, but then again he’s probably lost weight between all the exertions of his adventure followed by an illness. The sun is warming the sky, turning the clouds a pretty mix of pink and amber and it looks to be a good day until Bilbo closes the outhouse door and reaches into his trousers… only to find that something has gone missing.

    Or: that one Bilbo accidentally turns into a girl and it's all the dwarves' fault.

    Summary

    A series of (Rule-63ed) canon out-takes and what-ifs, leading up to a rather different ending - or, more accurately, a rather different beginning. It is, as Gandalf said, the small things that matter most.
