    Summary

    "Licking his dry lips, Bilbo gathered up his quailing courage and stretched a hand out to the air directly above the mushrooms. It stopped precisely at the boundary, and he let out a resigned breath. This is a bad day to be a Hobbit, he moaned to himself, before sucking in a breath and nodding to himself,

    But better Hobbit than Dwarf, today."

    Summary

    Hiraeth, pronounced [hɨraɪ̯θ], is a Welsh word that has no direct English translation. The University of Wales, Lampeter attempts to define it as homesickness tinged with grief or sadness over the lost or departed. It is a mix of longing, yearning, nostalgia, wistfulness, or an earnest desire for the Wales of the past.

    “Uncle Thorin.” Kili’s voice broke through the grim reminiscing of the dwarves as they glanced up. In the opened doorway, the prince had a rather peculiar look upon his face, body tense and feet shifting his weight as though anxious.

    “What is it, Kili?” Thorin grumbled, hoping against hope he had no more demands to listen to that day.

    "Uncle . . . there are hobbits at the gates."

    Summary

    John leaned forward slightly and looked at the marks. He jerked back and looked at Stiles. “You have two soulmates?” he asked incredulously.

    Stiles’s eyes slipped over to Chris and Peter again and then he looked away. He nodded.

    The Sheriff swore under his breath. “You said you didn’t know who your soulmate was,” John said. He sounded both confused and at the same time frustrated.

    Stiles licked his lips and unconsciously took another step backwards. “That may have been inaccurate,” he replied softly.

    Summary

    Natasha presses her hand over her heart, and – Tony has heard rumors, that her skin is blank, or that she killed her other half, but he doesn’t believe them. “They deserve to know, don’t you think?”

    He looks at the sleeping supersoldiers in his hospital room, thinks of going to bed safe and surrounded and waking up when it’s already light out, when the first pot of coffee is already cold, waking up to Steve’s bedhead and the body-warmed metal of Bucky’s prosthetic hand, waking up whole.

    “They’ve been together for ninety years, Nat,” he says. “They’re practically married. There’s no room for me.”
