    Summary

    When the Prince of the Shire visits the Kingdom of Erebor, there is great excitement. There are hopes he will choose to marry one of the Royal Family, cementing an alliance that would secure food supplies for the dwarven Kingdom and gain new allies. All eligible dwarves are expected to attend a series of Balls. Unknown to the guests, there is a third royal child, manoeuvred out by his ambitious stepmother, for whom this may be his last chance of restoring his fortunes and escaping his fate…

    Summary

    When the Shire cannot honour its Treaty with Erebor, the dwarves enforce a contractual clause: one Hobbit must be sent to Erebor to marry the King as a sign of good faith. But with neither party at all willing and plans afoot to undermine the King, maybe an unwilling Bilbo Baggins is exactly what Erebor needs…

    Summary

    Bilba has grown up the unwanted granddaughter of the Thain of the Kingdom of Shire but, as she rarely visits the palace, the relationship holds little meaning to her. Instead she focuses on her second year of college, her ballet career and her slowly burgeoning romance with Bofur, a crew member with her ballet company.

    The same day Bilba is set to preform on stage for the first time with her company, the kingdom of Shire is anticipating another event. That very evening will oversee the political, arranged marriage between Thorin Durin, Crown Prince of Erebor, and an unnamed Princess of Shire (so unnamed because Bilba's grandfather is a paranoid bastard).

    Bilba doesn't care about any of this, she hasn't been invited and has no interest in other countries, politics or other such machinations.

    Just before she's set to preform, however, Bilba suddenly finds herself dragged from the theater and taken to appear before her grandfather at the palace.

    There she is informed she WILL be participating in the wedding after all.

    As the bride.

    Whether she likes it or not.

    Summary

    Bilbo moves to Erebor from Belegost with his daughter Dahlia looking for a fresh start. Shunned by his people and living as a lone hobbit among dwarrow, he faces hardship after hardship as he struggles to provide for his daughter. Broken and weary, he’s devoted himself to bringing what happiness he can to his daughter at the expense of any possibility of his own. A chance encounter with a dark haired stranger changes everything and knocks what little peace he has found off balance. The dwarf seems determined to be involved in Bilbo’s life and he finds himself unable to keep pushing him away. Suddenly his own happiness doesn’t seem so far out of reach.

    Summary

    Hobbiton, Shire Reckoning 1341.

    My dear readers, the time has now come to place our bets for the upcoming Shire social season. As ever, this curious period from the end of Winter to the beginning of Summer is an excellent time for the marriageable young men and women of the Kingdom of Arnor to meet one another and make advantageous matches.

    This year there is all reason to believe that King Thorin II of Erebor, who is planning to tour Eriador on a goodwill trip this spring, will also be participating in the merriment. But the most notable attendee for the past seven years has, indeed, been Bilbo Baggins, the Golden Hare of the Shire. None who have made offers to him over these past few years have been accepted, but that does not seem to stop the relentless hunt for his hand.

    Will King Thorin find his match in the Shire this season? Will we finally see the Golden Hare ensnared? Only time will tell.

    Or: five social events where Bilbo Baggins and King Thorin II of Erebor were pretending to court, and one where they weren’t. (A Bagginshield Bridgerton AU)

    Summary

    Thirteen is the unlucky number for the criminal who can't learn, and Nori is all out of chances. His thirteenth theft means his punishment is the loss of an arm. Ori, fearing for his brother, begs the captain of the guard, saying he'd do anything, anything at all, to save his brother. Dwalin says he'll let Nori go in exchange for Ori himself. Ori, thinking he's trading a night in a seedy inn for his brother's arm, agrees. What he didn't expect after Nori had been let go, was for Dwalin to braid a marriage bead into Ori's hair and take the scribe home with him.

    Ori finds himself having breakfast with princes and kings, working a new job with the best in his field, and trying to navigate a relationship with a guardsman who has more power over Ori's life and happiness than either of them want.

    Summary

    One could think the dwarves of Erebor to be careless, reckless even, that they do not listen to the warnings of their elven allies about dragons and take no precautions.
    But do they really?

    Summary

    Bilba Baggins, Crown Princess of Erebor, knew the stories well. How her wandering ancestors, desiring a home, had tricked the King of Erebor and stolen his throne. It wasn’t a particularly nice story but, according to the legends, the old king had been a brute anyway so Bilba never particularly minded.

    King Durin had reportedly vowed to one day return and reclaim the mountain but, as the years passed the threat became little more than legend.

    Legend, until the day they weren’t.

    Now declared a threat to the stability of the throne and the new king who sits upon it, BIlba is given an ultimatum. She can marry her sworn enemy and bear him heirs to strengthen the Durin line, or be executed to remove the threat she presents by simply existing.

    The choice is hers.

    Summary

    Bilbo finds two dwarfling boys at his front of the door and takes them in. He expected two scared little children who will soon be claimed by kin. He did NOT expect a bunch of dwarves basically accusing him of kidnapping babes.

    Oh, should I mention that it also includes a King?

    Summary

    Bel was supposed to be marrying the man she loved. Instead she's marrying a prince she's never met, and if he's anything like his uncle, he'll be a completely insufferable git.
    Fíli was supposed to be free of any sort of arranged marriage. Now he was about to marry a Hobbit girl with nothing more than his uncle's reluctant approval to go on.
    Still, this would protect every other Hobbit on Arda, at least the ones who'd survived the war.
    Now it was only Bel who'd be fighting for her life.

    Summary

    When they had rescued the group of prisoners from the orcs that had been pestering his kingdom, Thorin hadn't expected that the halfling found among them could be of any interest. He could concede he had been wrong this time. Bilbo was nothing but resourceful, not to mention entertaining.
