    Summary

    Bilbo and Thorin are fine, happy, and married. But Dis is returning to the mountain, and she isn't happy. Can Thorin and Dis reconnect? Why is she behaving like this? Can thorin see past his own nose to what's going on?

    Excerpt:

    Had he not cared for her, clothed her, raised her, when no one else could? Where did she come from demanding he move the world when he had already moved mountains for her.
    But for once in his life he bit his tongue and was silent.

    Her voice was quiet now, jagged at the edges and raw.
    “I have nothing in this world but my sons. I’ve lost too much, seen too much. I will not lose them too.”
    Thorin winced. He should be in her list. But in her line up of all that mattered in the world, he had a begrudging spot at the end of the line. Her dead husband came before him. Friends even came before him.

    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

    Thorin was not sick. Not anymore.

    So why did he feel so terrible? He felt disconnected, unsettled. Like he could never quite grasp what was going on, never could get his feet under himself. It was like everything was under a thin layer of water, and he was getting so, so tired of swimming.

    Thorin runs away from his thoughts. Bilbo finds him, and brings him back to life.

    Summary

    Day 7 of Chaos Company's Angstpril2021 challenge --- Prompt: Friendly Fire

    Fili watched Thorin’s eyes, hoping for some sign of mental clarity, but it still seemed like he was not quite in the room with them. Thorin’s eyes still did not meet Dwalin’s even as he replied. “Many die in war, life is cheap. But a treasure such as this cannot be counted in lives lost. It is worth all the blood we can spend.”

    When Dwalin goes to talk to Thorin in the throne room scene during BOTFA, Fili tags along to see if he can help break his uncle out of the Gold Sickness.

    Summary

    NOTE: This story is now on permanent hiatus!

    Fíli grew up knowing that he would one day be the ruler of his people; but when Erebor is reclaimed and his uncle's sanity starts to fail, he begins to wonder about the Arkenstone's relationship to the madness of his forbears. Soon, war comes to the Lonely Mountain, pushing all other concerns aside; and when the battle ends and his closest kin have fallen, Fíli finds out for himself the truth of the Arkenstone's hold.

    (This is an AU involving Fíli surviving the Battle Of The Five Armies, and begins with a very different version of said Battle. Please see the story notes for more information!)
