    Summary

    The dwarves discuss the quickly encroaching Winter, and its predicted severity. Bilbo immediately steps in to ration and handle the food distribution for those in the mountain.
    Pleased that Bilbo is becoming more involved with the comings and goings of the mountain he will be calling home, the dwarves don't question his passion for the subject, because after all, Hobbits and food just go together, don't they?
    Or, where the Dwarves don't know the story of the Fell Winter.

    Summary

    Medûnost:
    unbearded, beardless.

    There is more to Bilbo Baggins than meets the eye. Gandalf probably deserves the brunt of the blame.

    In which Dwarrow families work differently than any other race. Where kin are more important than any treasure, quest, or legacy; kin are your legacy.

    Wherein Thorin says 'sister-sons' because the word has more significance than 'brother-sons'; or, where the word 'nephew' doesn't have an accurate translation into Khuzdul.

    Summary

    "Halfling" is considered an insult in the Shire. Of course, Big Folk (and dwarves) know far less than they think they do, so this fact eludes them. It especially eludes Thorin Oakenshield, so if Bilbo decides to use a Hobbit means of communicating his irritation, who can blame him?

    Summary

    “It is one thing to know that your child will grow up and fall in love with the one that shares their mark and an entirely different thing to see the proof before your eyes; proof that your child will not only lead a different life from you, but be taken from you by someone who you may never get the chance to know…”

    -From the personal journal of Belladonna Baggins

    Billa Baggins had grown up knowing that she was different, and it was not simply because of the fact that she was a Took-Baggins. While that was a partial factor to her strangeness, what was more definite was her flowering on the back of her left ear. Unlike other Hobbit flowerings that marked out the name of their soul mates, Billa’s flower was in a different language that was clearly not Hobbitish, with rough runes that were slightly warm to the touch.
    Everyone in the Shire knew that Billa was not ever going to marry another respectable hobbit.

    Summary

    Almost eighty years ago Dwalin was warned about the cruel fate that awaits those he loves. Now the quest for Erebor is reaching its end and he can sense that time is running out, but he is determined to fight for their lives with every ounce of his strength.

    Never did he expect that this desperate struggle might threaten his own bonds of loyalty and love.

    Third and last part of "Promises to Keep". Knowledge of the previous parts is not strictly necessary; the most important points will become clear in due time.

    Summary

    They stood gathered around the bloody Book of Mazarbul in Dwalin’s office, bound in dusty and torn cloth, the best Gimli could provide for in those cursed halls, as Gloin read out the hastily written letter enclosed with it.

    …fierce battle…cave troll… …Cousin Balin’s tomb… …Uncle Oin…west gates…the Watcher in the Water… …enclosed is the Book of Mazarbul…written in Ori’s hand…

    Dwalin leaned his fists on the table, face still. Finally, he calmly pushed himself up, walked into the next room, and shut the door. Nori flinched as the sounds of furniture smashing into walls competed with Dwalin’s heartbroken wordless roaring. Bifur visibly steeled himself, and strode in after him.

    None but them knew what happened afterward.

    Summary

    A prompt fill for ImGaladriel:

    Dwalin does not do well in caves. He does not do well in tunnels. He especially doesn't do well in cave tunnels. This is the reason why.
