"The pity of Bilbo may rule the fate of many." – Gandalf the Grey
"Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? …For even the very wise cannot see all ends." – Gandalf the Grey
Ten years after the Ring was destroyed, kings were crowned, and a hobbit married a dwarf, peace rings across all lands.
But as they will all learn, wickedness still resides in Middle-Earth, and it will strike out for its own selfish gains. When the Shire, and Bilbo, are threatened, the former Ringbearer will find numerous allies at his side, some old friends, some new faces, to oppose the new threat.
Yet the greater threat is one that they may not be able to circumvent: Fate itself. For Fate has been denied lives it was meant to take years ago, and the very hobbit who strives to stop Fate's hand may be the one that tips it.
A/N: If you are concerned about the Major Character Death tag PLEASE SEE THE NOTE IN THE FIRST CHAPTER. I will make it better I swear. There are fics planned for after this one!

Post 'to rule the fate of many', one year after the final battle.
Bilbo gets his garden, his own secret grove, and dutifully begins planting.
Except that it's not so secret. And everyone wants to stop by.
And this is supposed to be a SECRET.
One-shot. Can be read without the series (please see A/N at the beginning!)

Post 'to rule the fate of many'.
Two years after the Battle for Erebor, Dain calls for Thorin to meet him outside of the Iron Hills and Erebor. Confused, Thorin agrees, and brings Bilbo, Dwalin, Fili, and others with him.
What begins as a potential political meeting soon turns horrific when Bilbo is taken, along with Dwalin, before they reach Dain. While Thorin scours the land, desperate to find them both, Bilbo finds himself not only at the center of a terrible ransom, but also the center of attention from one of the kidnappers, whose interest in him is more admiring and adoring than Bilbo wants. Not when all he wants is his husband.
It's just a matter of hanging on until the ransom is given, and keeping himself and Dwalin alive until then.

Post 'the sun will warm our hearts and souls'.
Dain arrives in Erebor, and brings with him more than just ridiculous demands: he brings with him a strong will that may, in the end, tear apart a family. Especially when he aims his sights on those in Erebor who aren't dwarves.
What he doesn't know is that the ones he's ready to climb over for his ambition won't be bent easily.

Post "if the hills fall, I will rally to you".
With Thorin worrying about the Ered Luin trade, the last thing he needs is to worry about an old injury that's merely flaring up a little. That's all, and as far as Bilbo's concerned, it's nothing worth worrying over.
Until it suddenly isn't a little flare up. It's something far worse.
And because that isn't enough, devastating news is delivered to Erebor that will change everything forever.
