    Summary

    This thing started 4 years ago as a crack fic to amuse myself because honestly, dwarves are just ridiculous. As I returned to it after a long pause and it took an entirely different spin, a summary rewrite is a necessity.

    Bilbo Baggins had been touched by black magic. Her idle life in the Shire without any need to use her dark powers was turned upside down when Gandalf appeared at her doorstep to drag her yet again into trouble. But who wouldn't want to see a dragon? And the crownless king of dwarves wasn't so bad himself too. In hindsight, she should have just told the wizard to sod off.

    Thorin was quite ready to despise the newly acquired Company burglar, he was. Instead, he fell head over heels for her. Courting on the way to Erebor proves to be rather tricky when you're a directionally challenged jealous idiot and pretty much everyone ends up smitten with your One while literally nothing goes as planned.

    Throw in some dragon sickness angst, One Ring troubles, unexpected friendships and a lot of elves. Chaos ensues.

    Summary

    “Oh, you know what they say; all is fair in love and war.” “Yes, but not at the same time. That’s rather too much for one hobbit to handle at once, if you ask me.”

    During the Scouring of the Shire, the four Travellers battle their own traumas as they save their homeland. Frodo endeavours to help Sam live his own life; Merry grapples with the choices he made before the War; and Pippin balances honour against matters of the heart.

    Chapter Fourteen: In which Merry encounters some old friends - some expected, some not. Meanwhile, Diamond’s dabbling in collective action leads to surprising results.

    Summary

    A few years have passed since the War of the Ring ended. The hobbits we know and love are safe at home in the Shire. But after his time as a warrior, Merry struggles to cope with the quiet of Brandy Hall and the absence of his dear friends in Gondor. Autumn is in full force and a very special holiday comes along that he dreads spending alone. Just in time, he'll find he doesn't have to be alone any longer.

    But two questions weigh heavily on Merry's mind.

    Why has Boromir come? And could Boromir ever be happy spending the rest of his days far from home, in a hole in the ground?

    Summary

    In the book there is a gap of many years between Bilbo's departure from the Shire and Gandalf's return, with the results of his research on the Ring. Tolkien gives us only the briefest of overviews of that time, so I have set my imagination to fill the gap. Frodo Baggins learns that there is more to growing up, than coming of age.

    Summary

    Post "to rule the fate of many".

    The first winter after the battle has come to Erebor, and with it a determination to celebrate the holiday of Yule with the newer dwarf holiday of Lukhudfest from the Blue Mountains. All of the mountain, and its occupants, are eager to celebrate peace with garlands, mistletoe, food, and candles everywhere.

    In the midst of this joy, though, there is heartbreak and unease for those lost and a battle that one hobbit just can't forget.

    Good thing his husband and kin are determined to make this holiday a merry and bright one.

    Summary

    “For things are made to endure in the Shire, passing from one generation to the next.” – Fellowship of the Ring
    Hobbits are not what the others races believe. Crafted by the Valar and blessed with inherited magics called knacks, Hobbits have been ensuring the peace between the Free Peoples for a long time. No one else knows and Hobbits are content to keep it that way. However, years ago Shire life was disrupted by the marriage of Gerontius Took to Adamanta Chubb, originally known as the dragon Arradeth. Years later Bilbo Baggins is paying the price of being an odd hobbit, having inherited both Took and Baggins knacks along with his grandmother’s blood, and is the only one of her line to also have a dragon form. Now Gandalf the Grey is once again in need of a hobbit for an adventure and Bilbo must decide. Should he accompany the wizard and his group, face a dragon, and risk revealing Shire and family secrets? Or does he abandon his people’s sacred purpose and allow a stubborn king to send part of Middle Earth into war? Not to mention that if Bilbo does go he risks not only his life, but losing his dragon Heart to a band of suicidal dwarves. Either way, the choice of Bilbo Baggins may rule the fate of all Middle Earth.
