    Summary

    Summary

    Hi, all. Here's a story of FÍli and Kíli as youngsters.

    Kíli's unusual looks - too tall, weird hair, spindly body, and almost no beard - don't bother Fíli, nor do his atypical talents - unerring bowman, skilled animal handler, and quiet, thoughtful nature. They bother a right lot of bullies, though, who have progressed from taunts and shoves to outright beatings. Even Kíli's mastery of Master Dwalin's extra fighting lessons haven't helped - now the bullies gang up on Kíli to do even more damage. Today, Fíli's eagerness to try out his new sword leaves Kíli unprotected for a few seconds, just long enough for a trio of roughnecks to kick Kíli halfway to oblivion.

    If broken ribs, a concussion, and a gashed cheekbone aren't painful enough, Kíli's shame is even more devastating. Nothing Kíli has done has helped him to overcome his harassment. It makes Fíli sick to see such despair in his brother's normally bright eyes, and he vows to put a stop to his brother's abuse, no matter what he has to do.

    The question is, what should he do?

    Summary

    Five years after the War of the Ring, rumors have been spread all around Middle-Earth that the lords of Aglarond and Ithilien are closer than mere friendship. Threatened by Legolas and Gimli's obvious preference for doing business with one another, the leaders of Erebor and Mirkwood turn suspicious eyes to their trading relationships.

    Infuriated by the rumors and scheming, Legolas and Gimli decide to pretend they're married in order to prove that their realms would treat fairly with others no matter what. But can they maintain the deception? Will it end their legendary friendship-- or could it lead to more?

    Summary

    A fifteenth member joins the company of Thorin Oakenshield. She is a well-trained, experienced warrior dwarf, the adopted daughter of Thror's General and Dwalin's perfect match. But both of their strong sense of duty get in the way of their happiness. Follows the story of the Hobbit and continues afterward. Aspects of LOTR, but probably won't get all the way.

    Summary

    Hobbits, being the smallest of the free races and less inclined toward violence, knew that they would be at great risk from dark or greedy forces. So, the Hobbit leaders banded together to create a plan. The plan was domestication. Let the other races think them like animals. Dogs, Cats, Birds and others have been cared for by the taller folk with only companionship and love as the exchange. So why not Hobbits as well? After all, what is more comfortable than having food, shelter and protection provided for you?

    For ages the Hobbits have been considered creatures of comfort. They are the most versatile animals in all of Middle Earth. They can cook, sew, clean, be trained to guard livestock or even read small words. They are great judges of character and once one has been chosen as their family they instantly achieve positive social status. Most importantly though, Hobbits are the greatest companions that love unconditionally.

    And Thorin will find one for his nephews if its the last thing he'll do.

    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

    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

    Welcome to my first FanFic! This is my personal take on one of my Dragon Age: Origins characters, Kylara, Human Mage, and her adventures as a Grey Warden in the land of Ferelden. There is in-game dialogue used, especially in the beginning, but past Chapter 3 things start branching off from the original game. A few changes I have made: my character already knows Wynne, as she was Kylara’s former teacher in the Circle Tower. I also gave a name to the small lake east of Lake Calenhad - I am calling it Lake Caeron. Another change is that I moved the Golem Shale from Honnleath to a town of my own creation in the mountains northwest of Rainesfere. Since fast travel is available in the game, but not in the story, I had to make it more plausible to be able to recruit Shale without having to travel days south, away from all other points in the game. I also used horses and carriages where I thought they would fit into the lore. Mage spells, when written out, are in Scottish Gaelic (long spells already translated) Some characters have had some personality tweaks… A lot of things will not be canon, but I hope you will like it all the same. There is Mature Content. NOW FEATURING ART (and screenshots)! ^_^

Though when the subject of an arranged marriage crops up and Kíli comes running to her to fix it, what is a Hobbit-lass to do? Propose of course.

    Summary

    In the winter months after the retaking of Erebor, Tauriel meets up with Kili to discuss their relationship and it isn't what he had hoped. Good thing that Uncle Thorin is a lot better at this parenting thing than people give him credit for.

    Takes place after my story "Calling In A King's Favor" but you don't necessary have to read it in order to follow this one.

    The Hobbit characters are owned by JRR Tolkien and used only for the enjoyment of fans. Tauriel was created by Peter Jackson for the movie verse.

    Summary

    This little story, or big depending on how you look at it, is not something that you would expect to hear about. It is not a story of great deeds, or about a great hero. She wasn't a hero. She was a fisher from Alaska doomed to a life she never would have chosen and quest that wasn't even hers. Her adventure was entirely unexpected. Or at least, that's how the story went.

    Part of series, but acts as a stand alone.
