    Summary

    “The heart is a fickle and foolish thing,” he replied instead. “I cannot afford to trust my own. Not when wisdom is firm, and so definitively defies it.”

    Balin laughed, and with such mirth that he startled the king for a moment, and caused him to worry that he might have been misheard.

    “Oh, what nonsense that is,” the old dwarf responded good-naturedly. “It’s quite the opposite. How else could it be that the passage of time might wipe the memory of a person from your mind so cleanly that even their face may one day be obscured from you, yet it is your heart which never grows tired of missing them?

    “Did you know, I quite forgot my mother’s name the other day, and I very nearly had to ask my brother for it before it came to me all of a sudden. Still, I cannot eat lamb without wishing it were made by her recipe, and every sunrise I see seems hardly more than a gentle shadow of the warmth she once brought me. She brings it to me still, though she has been gone a century yet. Love is not a physical thing. It is not so frail.”

    -- In the Half-Light of the Canyon, Chapter 17

    Summary

    Erebor's time has finally come, now that Thorin has gathered together enough loyal Dwarves to make it to the Lonely Mountain alive. Dwalin just wishes they weren't a cursed number.
    Oh, and that the irritatingly bull-headed Halfling Tharkûn found in the Shire would go home already. The Wilds are no place for a half-starved, girl-child gentleHobbit who can neither fight nor fend for herself.

    Belda's time to escape has finally come, now that she's managed to convince (read: emotionally blackmail) Gandalf into agreeing to let her come on the quest thingy he seems to be on, as well as convince the annoyingly bull-headed leader of the Dwarven pack to let her join them until Rivendell, at least. She only hopes she can earn their respect.
    Especially his second-in-command.
    Oh, and that they won't kill her when they find out the truth. She might not be their Burglar yet, but she regrets lying to them anyway.
    Other than Thorin. The stupidhead.

    Summary

    When Dwalin arrived at the round, green door in the settlement of Hobbiton in this strange land, called the Shire, he was skeptical... A pretty, little lass with wild, golden-brown curls and big green eyes looked up at him, wearing nothing but a hideous over-sized patchwork dressing gown, consisting of different colours and fabrics, over a white, very thin and thus revealing, nightshirt...

    Summary

    Thorin Oakenshield is the son of Thrain Oakenshield, one of the richest and most influential men in all of Great Britain. He has a brother, Frerin, and a sister, Dis, who sometimes feel like they're miles away from him. He has a mother, but she's just the roses she left behind in her garden.
    Dwalin MacFundin is the younger brother of Balin MacFundin, Thrain Oakenshield's best friend, assistant and confidante. He has a brother he's given up on understanding and a heart that's as deep as the sea, a mother he loves fiercely and a father that's only left scars.
    Their worlds couldn't be more different- and as things often go, their worlds collide.
    What comes after is a hurricane, a forest fire, inevitable, wonderful, unstoppable.
    What comes after changes their lives forever.

    Content Warnings: graphic depiction & mention of family issues, verbal/physical abuse, mental illness, drug/alcohol addiction, suicidal ideation, ableism, homophobia. Mention of attempted sexual assault. Individual warnings are given chapter by chapter.

    Summary

    Bilbo interrupts an argument between Bombur and Dwalin to explain the hobbit approach to ancestral weaponry, and the insanity of more or less the entire Took line.

     

     

    Or: why frying pans are a hobbit's weapon of choice.

    Summary

    This world started when Smaug never cam- uhhh not really?

    Belladonna was unlike any other hobbits and her offspring is a perfect evidence of tha- now that's just rude.

    Tis is a world where chance and circumstance brought in a blessing out of a curse- stop emulating Gandalf

    The author is a selfish jerk who wanted a baby dwobbit bilbo- now wai- she's also crazy.

     

    I have no idea what to do with the summary, sweet lord give me talent.

    Summary

    "It's the only way, Thorin. We are the last of our bloodline, neither of us has a One and we need heirs," Dís says, her steel blue eyes looking straight into his, eyes that are the same colour as his. - Dís proposes something to her brother which he is not so sure about... And Dwalin doesn't like the idea either. Then he and Dís agree on a rather pleasurable arrangement.

    Summary

    (The third of my orphaned works to be continued. Explanation in Chapter One.)

    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?

    AKA, the one 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.

    Summary

    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?
