    Summary

    Erebor's time has finally come, now that Thorin has gathered together enough loyal Dwarves to make it to the Lonely Mountain alive. Dwalin just wishes they weren't a cursed number.
    Oh, and that the irritatingly bull-headed Halfling Tharkûn found in the Shire would go home already. The Wilds are no place for a half-starved, girl-child gentleHobbit who can neither fight nor fend for herself.

    Belda's time to escape has finally come, now that she's managed to convince (read: emotionally blackmail) Gandalf into agreeing to let her come on the quest thingy he seems to be on, as well as convince the annoyingly bull-headed leader of the Dwarven pack to let her join them until Rivendell, at least. She only hopes she can earn their respect.
    Especially his second-in-command.
    Oh, and that they won't kill her when they find out the truth. She might not be their Burglar yet, but she regrets lying to them anyway.
    Other than Thorin. The stupidhead.

    Summary

    Gandalf arrives late to the ‘negotiations’ between Thorin, Thranduil and Bard at the gates of Erebor. Events take a different course and Thorin must face the consequences of his actions for the rest of his life (however long or short that may be).
    Probably going to be Thorin/Bilbo – I have never written about romantic relationships but Thorin is very obviously smitten (need I say more than Mithril shirt?) and film Thorin is maybe even more so.
    This story will take it’s pick of aspects from the book, the films and fanon because I don’t remember enough details from the book (it’s been about a decade since I’ve read it!) but I am not a big fan of certain decisions made in the films.

    Summary

    Gold sickness is not a once and done condition. It comes back if not watched. Be warned: the one who watches a king cannot have a heart of gold.

    Burglars, however, are recommended.

    Summary

    "Sometimes you change your mind,
    Sometimes your mind changes you,
    And sometimes a witch changes your life."

    It all started with a single light in the dark of the night. If Bilbo had known it was about end with this mess he was in, he would have turned around and not spend a single second on watching it. But, unfortunately, our favorite Hobbit followed the light, completely unaware of the consequences that would change his whole life.

    OR

    After Rivendell, Bilbo wanders off and gets turned into a Dwarf. This has its pros and cons.

    Summary

    Natalya was an Elven warrior who had been taken to Mirkwood to live under the rule of King Thranduil following her father's death in battle. The Elf never knew much about her mother as she died shortly after giving birth. Even though the Elves have always been kind, Natalya never felt at home. The Elf’s heart yearned to leave the peaceful Woodland Realm and travel west to explore Middle Earth. Finally she had the opportunity to escape when Thorin and his company traveled through Mirkwood on their way to Erebor. Even though relationships between Dwarves and Elves had been forbidden, Natalya watched over Thorin until she found a way for them to escape. She was surprised when Thorin requested that she accompany them on their perilous journey to reclaim his homeland. Natalya accepted and before long realized that her life was changed forever as she discovered something secretive about her past she was never told.

    Summary

    Bilbo knew as soon as he and Thorin woke up in the morning, grumbling (one of them far more than the other), unwilling to give up the last vestiges of warmth. He saw it in the way Thorin’s eyes tracked him as he got ready, following even more closely than usual. Then they lingered outside their chambers for far too long saying goodbye.
    And so, Bilbo prepared their chambers, had dinner set up, and dressed himself from head to toe in precious metals and gems.

    or

    Thorin's goldsickness returns every few months, but after a while, his possessiveness of gold morphs into Just Wanting to Love Bilbo.

    Summary

    Most people in Arda don’t know much about the Hobbits of the Shire. History has largely overlooked them as they live in peace and quiet in their blessed green land.
    Bilbo Baggins knew well how precious home and hearth were, which is why she agreed to follow thirteen dwarves on their mad quest.
    It was good Thorin Oakenshield and his Company took the opportunity to learn all there was to know about the strange little burglar in all the months they travelled together. Or did they?

    Summary

    "I apologise for startling you so, Master Baggins."
    Bilbo smiled sheepishly, embarrassed.
    "It is quite all right, Thorin," said Bilbo, "And call me Bilbo, all the others do."
    Thorin's eyes met Bilbo's.
    "Bilbo," he said carefully, as if trying out the word for the first time.

     

    A series of tender (and not so tender) moments between Thorin and Bilbo during their journey to the Lonely Mountain.

    Summary

    “...Thorin, son of Thrain?” Gandalf said, and Thorin felt something within him shift.
    Something desperate and keening bade him look once more at the Thief— at Bilbo— and, before he could even think of doing anything else, his eyes shifted to the body pinned down before him. Bilbo looked up at him with wide, wide eyes, his lips parted as he breathed heavily, afraid and—
    And sad, so so sad, as if it were not his body Thorin was about to throw over the ramparts but his heart instead.
