Bilbo Baggins had walked this earth a total of eight times in his past. He did remember them all, in some form or another, though he could rarely recall their names or faces, or very much detail about their lives at all. He always remembered their deaths, though. And he always remembered how it was someone – a well-meaning wizard, for instance – that had shown up and enticed or blackmailed him away from his home and family to go off and die for the good of the world.
Much like what was happening now.
Or: How the dragon soul of Bilbo Baggins made a deal with Manwë and can't seem to escape the consequences, and Thorin Oakenshield looks far too much like one of Bilbo's dead husbands.

Long ago, when the first Dark Lord shaped the first dragons, the Valar did not leave the peoples of Middle-Earth defenseless against them. They reached out to certain heroes and formed them into heroes capable of killing dragons and making sure they stay dead. These heroes were known as Dragonborn.
Now in the Third Age, when in the wake of Smaug's death it's revealed that the ancient dragons of Morgoth are somehow being revived, a Dragonborn is needed once more. But instead of the Valar choosing one hero, they instead split the Dragonborn's soul between two unlikely candidates - Bilbo Baggins and Thorin Oakenshield.
They have to discover who is behind the resurrection of the dragons before the most feared dragon in Middle Earth, Ancalagon the Black is revived, and learn to master their new powers. However, with the Arkenstone lost in the horde, and the siege of Erebor broken by the elves having to withdraw and protect their lands from the orcs streaming to Dol Guldur, Thorin is still struggling with goldsickness.
He is only snapped out of it when a second dragon attacks Erebor...

Dovahkin!Bilbo, what a notion! Instead of a Durin the deathless Bilbo, we have a reincarnated being of Morgoth. Ulugwin, Bilbo’s first life, was a ruthless dragon that caused the death of many races. Until one day, that is, that she began to desire her freedom more than power and gold. It was then that The Beast of Gondolin made a deal with the king of the Valar: Manwe. In return for her freedom, she would fight back the evil in the world.
Eight reincarnations later and many bloody deaths to follow Ulugwin begins to resent her dealings with the Valar. As Bilbo Baggins, a confirmed bachelor and kind gentle hobbit, he begins to hope that at least one of his lives will end with old age and not bloodshed. At least until a meddling old wizard darkens his front porch….
