    Summary

    After they are driven out of their home, Fíli, his brother, and their uncle find refuge in the unlikely home of two hobbits. Gandalf said they’d be safe there, but only Thorin can keep them safe.

    Thorin has already lost everything. All he has left are his nephews and even now he worries that they will be lost to him as well. He doesn’t trust the hobbits, especially the female one. She seems far too interested in his nephews for his liking.

    Kíli misses his mom. He knows he should be more cautious, but he likes the hobbits. He especially likes the lady one. She reminds him of his mom.

    Briar never fit in the Shire. She was always too different. But maybe, her place was always meant to be in the mountains instead of hills.

    Bilbo always knew his job was to protect his little sister. She was the only family he had left, after all. But family isn’t always defined by blood. Sometimes family is by choice.

    Summary

    During the Battle of the Five Armies, Bilbo dies. On the other side, he's met by the Essence of the Universe - and they are not pleased with this turn of events. Deciding to send Bilbo back, they give him two advantages: knowledge, and strength.

    Bilbo is born as a dragon of the First Age with all the memories of the hobbit Bilbo Baggins. First, he has to survive several thousand years as a dragon... and then, when he's finally a hobbit again, he has to deal with keeping his identity secret while traveling with the Company of thirteen dwarves. With guilt eating him up and worry of the future gnawing at his bones, Bilbo sets off for the March of Erebor. He can only hope he won't fall for a certain dwarven king on his way there... again.

    Summary

    It was simply another late summer day, and Harry Potter was receiving another punishment from the Dursleys. He never asked for their love, even though a small part of him may have wished they could allow to grow and show the fondness they did to each other to him as well. All Harry wanted was to be accepted, to feel that spark that burrowed so deep inside him to light.

    This tale begins at the peak of that wishing, the peak of the Durlseys hate. A drastic change of story to overlap and intertwine LOTR.

    Harry finds himself in another world, his body not the same but feeling more his own than it ever had. When faced with the choice will he ever return to his own world? When it comes down to it, he may have little choice in going back.

    WARNING there are dark themes to this story.

    Summary

    Hobbits had many secrets, perhaps as many as the dwarfs. But no one knew about hobbit secrets, so no one went looking for them. When Dwalin had told Bilbo of the deepest secret of dwarrow children, Bilbo had kept the deepest secret of hobbit children behind his teeth.

    Note: This story is a series of vignettes and ideas. I'll probably never finish them all, but the last chapter includes a summary of what all I might have thrown in.

    Summary

    After arriving at Beorn's halls, Bilbo is conscripted into helping Óin rebandage Thorin's wounds. And I'm not giving the rest away, except to be appalled at myself for embracing dwarrow humor so. ::facepalms::

    Summary

    Dwarves reveal their true names under only two circumstances:

    If they meet the One their Maker has destined them for.

    Or if they lie dying having never done so.

    Thorin is pretty sure he's doomed to the latter option.

    Summary

    Thorin was sure that Bilbo didn’t know what he was doing. There was no possible way his dear friend could know that his behavior was so...so...indecent! And in public, no less! Even though it was unintentional, Bilbo’s new habit was wreaking havoc on Thorin’s self control.

    Summary

    Bilbo always wore his long hair in a messy bun at the nape of his neck. The hobbits of the Shire always through he was odd for doing so, but the company don't find it that strange. They also know that hobbits do not place the same reverence on hair as dwarf culture does.

    But when Bilbo panics when his hair is cut after facing down Azog, the company (and especially Thorin) learn that Bilbo placed more importance in his hair than they could have imagined.

    Summary

    When Thorin Oakenshield married Bilbo Baggins of the Shire, the kingdom of Erebor was suspicious. They did not understand how such a simple being could captivate their King’s heart. Rumours began to spread of the enchantments of hobbits, conjecture of witchcraft and spells.

    Summary

    At no point in the accidental usurpation of Thorin as leader of The Company and the quest for Erebor, did Bilbo intend for this to turn into an exploration of cultural differences (and something that almost feels like group therapy). For some reason, the Dwarrows aren't complaining, and Bilbo isn't going to question it, as long as the lumoxes behave themselves and do as they're told.

    Who knows, they all might yet survive this insane journey.

    (Or, where Bilbo decides the Dwarves are all too stupid for him to endure this ridiculousness anymore and Does It Hobbit and the Dwarves suddenly get affectionate.)

    *Please note, within this story there are mentions of the underage rape and subsequent pregnancy of an off-screen character. Mentions are brief in chapter 2, and a little more in depth chapter 4. While details are light and are more discussions of emotional aftermath, this may still be distressing to read for those with triggers. Please be cautious.

    Summary

    Three years after the adventure that took the Baggins twins to Erebor and back, life still has not quite settled. Bag End has gained two dwarves, but lost much of its luster and the little family is hanging together by one fraying thread. An invitation to a wedding might be the perfect way to bring people together, but bringing them together could also be the thing that tears them apart for good.

    "Smaug owes allegiance to no one, but if he should side with the Enemy... a dragon could be used to terrible effect,"

     

    -Gandalf the Gray

    .

     

    A different first encounter between Bilbo and Smaug changes the course of history, and an unlikely friendship conspires to redraw the map of Middle Earth.

    an excerpt from 'An Unexpected Friend'

    Smaug looked at the creature he'd caught. What a tiny thing it was! Even smaller than the dwarves, and much lighter of step. Had it not been holding a beacon while rifling through his gold, Smaug would hardly have noticed it.

    But here it was, and the dragon was careful not to crush the tiny thing in his grasp.

    "Here you are," Smaug rumbled, opening his hand.

    Inside it was a creature he had never seen before, but upon closer inspection, one he knew immediately in his heart as kin. The creature carried within it something Smaug hadn't encountered in ages: the touch of the Green Lady.

    A fellow child of Yavanna, after all these years.

    "Hello,"

    Summary

    A fill for The Hobbit Kink Meme: “I would like a fic where Thorin is just really really bad at flirting. And he tries really hard but somehow it just doesn’t work and he gets more and more frustrated which isn’t helping. It’s kind of ridiculous, really. He can face orcs and wargs and orcs ON wargs but whenever he tries to have a civil conversation with Bilbo the words somehow get switched around before he can speak them.

    BONUS for him going to Balin for advice, Bilbo being totally oblivious (or totally in the know but not willng to help Thorn out just yet) and Gandalf being endlessly amused and dropping innuendos left and right.”

    Now with a Chinese Translation! Link in the notes.

    Enjoy!
