4 Works in Adelard Took
“For things are made to endure in the Shire, passing from one generation to the next.” – Fellowship of the Ring
Hobbits are not what the others races believe. Crafted by the Valar and blessed with inherited magics called knacks, Hobbits have been ensuring the peace between the Free Peoples for a long time. No one else knows and Hobbits are content to keep it that way. However, years ago Shire life was disrupted by the marriage of Gerontius Took to Adamanta Chubb, originally known as the dragon Arradeth. Years later Bilbo Baggins is paying the price of being an odd hobbit, having inherited both Took and Baggins knacks along with his grandmother’s blood, and is the only one of her line to also have a dragon form. Now Gandalf the Grey is once again in need of a hobbit for an adventure and Bilbo must decide. Should he accompany the wizard and his group, face a dragon, and risk revealing Shire and family secrets? Or does he abandon his people’s sacred purpose and allow a stubborn king to send part of Middle Earth into war? Not to mention that if Bilbo does go he risks not only his life, but losing his dragon Heart to a band of suicidal dwarves. Either way, the choice of Bilbo Baggins may rule the fate of all Middle Earth.

The Shire that Gandalf finds when he travels in search of a Burglar is vastly different from the one he expects and remembers from before the Fell Winter ravaged its way across once peaceful hills, a trail of starving wolves in its wake. Victim to a harsh ruler and to the hardest winter in Middle-Earth's history, the Shire has changed, and so has Bilba Baggins.
The incredibly short story no one ever asked for about how Frodo's parents got together with a little help from their relatives.

Post "in need of a hand to hold" and Chapter 9 from "my words will wander".
It's Bilbo's 90th birthday. What should be a simple celebration to acknowledge a hobbit's older age is fraught with not so celebratory things. Such as Frodo's heartache over what he thought was love, and Bilbo's memory that continues to slip.
Yet a silver lining hangs in the cloud above: kin visitors that may help the celebratory feeling return. Kin that happens to know a little something about mending hearts, and a lot more about fighting hard for Bilbo.
