    Summary

    “That’s vindictive of you,” C says. “Once, you could have been in Jacobs’s position.”

    “And having an intelligence agency crash into one's life – that’s exactly what happened to me, isn’t it,” Q says sharply, and then slaps his open palm against his forehead. His damn broken filters again. “My apologies. It’s different coming from this side of the equation now.”

    “You’re on edge today, Quartermaster.”

    Q pulls off his glasses and pinches at the bridge of his nose, and lets his eyes fall close for a moment. “It’s been a rather long week.”

     

    When Bond falls off the radar yet again, Q has to weigh tracing his last movements with concentrating on his own assignment, dealing with a hacker of some renown. Either way, agents keep plotting, the world keeps spinning and Q Branch needs to continue doing what it does best.

    Or does it?

    Summary

    Certain events in Bilbo’s life were always destined to come to pass, but the will of Belladonna Took is not to be trifled with, and her choice may yet change the lives of many.

    This is the story of how Bilbo became the kin of the Eagles of Manwë, and all that happened after.

    (Original idea and prompt from Ewelock’s amazing art, eva4art's gorgeous follow-up piece, and reddresscloudysky’s excellent speculation on tumblr).

    Summary

    In the years since Bilbo left Erebor, he has lost his respectability, gained a nephew, and gotten on with life at Bag End.

    He'd left aside adventure for the comforts and peace of his little Hobbit hole, and for the love of a child who needed him. Though perhaps, adventures can yet find him.

    Summary

    From a Hobbitkink prompt:

    The battle was over, and Thorin Oakenshield awoke, naked and shivering, in the Halls of his Ancestors.

    The novelty of being dead fades quickly, and watching over his companions soon fills him with grief and guilt. Oddly, a faint flicker of hope arises in the form of his youngest kinsman, a Dwarf of Durin's line with bright red hair.

    (Follows the story of the War of the Ring).

     

    (Bagginshield, Gimli/Legolas) In which recovery takes time, the dead members of the Company take to watching Gimli as though he’s a soap opera, the living struggle with being left behind, Legolas is confused, Khuzdul is abused, and Thorin is four feet and ten inches of guilt and anger.

    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.
