Finally getting around to cross-posting my B2MeM works.
B2MeM Challenge: Smials. Hobbit holes. Round doors and round windows, grass on top, roof-trees, gardens filled with flowers; cosy comfort inside, sitting rooms with warm hearths, kitchens full of good smells and pantries laden with food. Grand warrens like the Great Smials or Brandy Hall, modest manors like Bag End, or humble holes like Number Three Bagshot Row dreamflower02
Warning: First attempts at handiwork in a Very Long Time.
(See the end of the work for more notes.)
01. The date 1271 was chosen because Gerontius Took's many children would have started having their own children by then, and Great Smials, which was built by Isengrim (the third, I think, but my copy of RotK is currently with a friend so I'm not sure) would have been overcrowded.
02. Another reason is that there seems to have been a population explosion around that time.
