    Summary

    He sits in vast halls of stone, a golden crown upon his head and capes of fur on his back. He sits, resplendent, on a high throne, with the Arkenstone behind his head. He rules Erebor with a fist of iron and a will of steel. He is the most powerful dwarf in all of Middle-Earth. He is King under the Mountain.
    Erebor's gates have been sealed for years, and not a soul has been seen entering or leaving. The King under the Mountain has severed ties between him and all of Middle-Earth. He is mad with power, drunk on the sheer volume of what he possesses. The Elvenking Thranduil has vanished into Mirkwood; Bard, the Lord of Dale, has lost everything; and Esgaroth fell long ago. None would dare enter the Mountain, not while Thorin Oakenshield still lives.
    But when unbidden, a sole person enters Erebor with a purpose and a motive that don't quite match, the tide begins to turn slowly but surely. Unbeknownst to them, they are about to step into the most dangerous game ever played—the game of chance.

    Summary

    Thranduil crouched behind one of the many bushes. Should any of his subjects learn of his predicament, they would probably deny that he was their king, rather, they would insinuate that some sort of imposter was trying to impersonate the mighty elf. But it was not so, and Thranduil Opherion crouched behind the plant just the same, his eyes narrowed as he spied on the waiting bargeman.

    Thranduil hides in the bushes to check that his ferry-elves are doing their job well. They aren't. So, naturally, he fires them a hires a group he finds more fit for the job. And yet, he finds himself in the bushes again the next week anyways; something about The Bargeman has peaked his interest. And perhaps the same is true vice versa, for when he reveals himself (reveals himself as "Thran", of course; Eru forbid the man find out he was The Elvenking), The Bargeman and him strike a friendship. A friendship which blossoms into something more.

    Summary

    Bard has got enough issues without adding harbouring fugitive dwarves in his home and watching one of them die from a poisoned wound to the list, but he can hardly leave them to the Master's tender mercies now can he?

    What he doesn't expect is to soon owe his life to the irritatingly enigmatic King Under the Mountain, nor for his traitorous children to hang on the dwarf's every word when he tells stories of the days of old.

    It never occurs to him that perhaps their own story would some day end up in the history books.

    (A what if scenario in which Thorin is the one who gets shot by the Morgul shaft.)
