    Summary

    Dwalin Fundin/Ori Ri, Dwalin/Ori, Dwori, Balin Fundin/Dori Ri, Balin/Dori, Darlin. Soon Nori/Bofur, Eventual Fili/Sigrid, and Kili/Tauriel, Several OC dwarrows. Eventual Thorin Oakenshield/Bilbo Baggins, Thilbo, Bagginshield,
    Ori of the Brothers Ri is a freelance scribe in the poorest part of the City of Dale. He rushes to rescue his trouble-making elder brother Nori and finds a life, romance and food in the Mountain among royalty. Dori has secrets! And there’s nothing like a fairy-tale of scandal and lost nobility! The story is completely from Ori’s point of view. Expect appearances from Thror, Frerin (who is an utterly spoiled brat - apologies to Frerin worshipers), Lady Galadriel, Thranduil and practically everyone else. This is totally safe for Dain fans!
    Smaug never hatched and Isildur listened to Elrond (somebody has to) and the one Ring no longer exists. Sauron is just a bad guy with orc armies.
    There are some serious bits, but mostly it’s just a lively romp with food. Did we mention the food?

    Summary

    "My dear Mr. Baggins," she replied, "how can you be so tiresome! You must know that I am thinking of one of these, unmarried Dwarf king or princes, marrying at least one of our Bagginses, and why not my Bilbo? He’s the prime of the lot."

    The Hobbit / Pride and Prejudice mashup that nobody asked for.

    Summary

    My (continued) take on the MGiME trope.

    I've recreated my account and am continuing my orphaned pics. Full note in Chapter one.

    Orla is reincarnated into the body of a young dam, and retains all her knowledge of the stories. But, she doesn't speak the language. She has great difficulty with dwarves Khuzdul, despite now being a dwarf, but picks up Inglishmek fairly easily.

    Bifur finds this lost girl, and takes her in, claiming her as his daughter and helps her to learn to communicate again.

    She tries to use her knowledge to help her new people, and change the course of the future.

    Now if she could only figure out what Bofur meant when he kept trying to give her things she didn't need with money she knew they didn't have.

    Summary

    Asha Brystowe diSorvina has spent years trying to escape from her dark past, hiding a dangerous secret that could mean her banishment - or death. She lives as a simple herbalist within the Shire and rarely travels farther than her woods or the Market Place. But her contentment is disturbed by the Wizard Gandalf - a Wizard who shares her past, if only slightly - and a company of Dwarves when they turn up on her doorstep, ready to whisk her, and her adoptive brother Bilbo Baggins, on an adventure.

    Kili Durin knows he must help protect his people and restore them to their rightful place in Erebor. He expected it to be a matter easily taken care of, never mind the Dragon. He did not expect the small lass who joined the Company of Thorin Oakenshield, nor did he expect to be attracted to the young woman.

    For Asha and Kili, the thought of their One's has always been kept at a distance. Asha from necessity; Kili due to a lack of hope. But once it's realized, it can not be denied. Asha must fight her very being, and Kili must fight to keep her - even if it means taking on the scars of the past, the fragility of the present, and the impossibility of the future.

    Summary

    **I'm sorry I'm so slow in updating this. I promise it will be finished! Eventually. But it will be! :p

    Thorin wasn't always so dark and brooding...

    Years after the horror of Smaug and miles away from Erebor, Signí is a young dwarrowess working in her father's shop. As fate would have it, exiled dwarven prince Thorin finds himself living in the same village. Alienated and lonely in the world of humans, the two former childhood friends find themselves in love and finally have a chance to be together... but something sinister is lurking in the shadows. How far would Signí go for the love of her life? Will they create a new life together, or will the madness in Thorin's family prove to be too much?

    This is the life of Thorin Oakenshield.

     

    (This is a headcanon that won't leave me and fills in the years of Thorin's life between the arrival of Smaug and the quest for Erebor. I will try to stay as true to the events in Tolkien's texts as I can while exploring what he doesn't say, though for this story the characters look like they do in the films.)

    Summary

    By the governing law of the Shire, Bilbo Baggins found himself Thain and reluctant diplomat of the hobbits; which, perhaps he wouldn't have minded if the circumstance's were different. Although seeing as he should have been several times removed before he were to obtain such a title, a desolation had befallen Hobbiton and they found themselves without a home and many without their family.

    Yet, with no way to return to the rolling hills of the Shire, Bilbo Baggins found himself in quite the situation indeed; arranged by lords and royalty, to honour aged treaties and debts of old: his hand to be given off to a king he's never met, for the security and safety of his people, and never in all his years would he have thought his life to come to this.

    Summary

    The first stones in the path of Thorin Oakenshield's Quest for Erebor were laid centuries before his birth, and some of the last ripples of influence were made by the pebble who would become his mother.
    Darkness is creeping back into the world, ever so slowly, and the Past casts long shadows in the hearts of Dwarrow, Men, and Elves.

    Follow the Quest as it unfolds, as choices made long ago come back to haunt the footsteps of those who are not even aware they once existed. Some stories, which should have been told, are kept secret, but some secrets do not remain so; however well-meaning their keepers.

    "Even the very wise cannot see all ends."

    With a little understanding, a touch of mercy, many things might be different in the lives of the Children of Mahal.
    A story of courage, love, and consequences.
    This story focuses on the events of the Hobbit, with a multitude of side-stories forming the rest of the series.

    For Azi, who always loved a good story and enjoyed the previews enough for me to post it here. I hope you like it, ye crazy Scotsman!

    Summary

    *In a world were the Dragon never came, Thror still went mad with greed and end up banishing his young Grandchild, Thorin when he defended the Elves in an argument.

    Alone and banish from Erebor, and after managing to strike a deal and maintain the peace between his people and the Elves, Thorin roam the world without family or kin, finding jobs in human villages but never staying too long. That is until he meet a small wee Hobbit lass and found himself immerse into the lives of Hobbits and a family in particular.

    Through the years, he had manage to stay away from people and from forming any kind of bond for fear of getting hurt, but now with the young lass constantly following his steps he find himself not minding it so much, that is until the attraction started to form between them. Now he had to fight those feelings or else he could get hurt again.

    But nothing can stand between the deep love of a Hobbit lass, not even the stubbornness of Dwarves, specially if that young woman is called Bluebell Baggins.*

    Summary

    Gimli carries all of his treasure in one bag.

    This was originally written as a one-shot, but I later decided Gimli needed more love (he really does!) and added a second part. All the same, the first part can be read as a stand alone story.

    XOXO,

    Summary

    Drafting a contract is a gravely serious task in Dwarrow culture; a contract concerning courtship, betrothal, and marriage even more so. Bilbo, the formerly respectable Hobbit of Bag End, was no stranger to the business of contracts, although he seemed to have underestimated the vigor with which the scribes of Erebor took to their task. Despite Dwarven confusion, there are some things a Hobbit simply requires, even if that Hobbit will live in Erebor.
