    Summary

    I could say, perhaps, that there was something I could have done to change how things had played out. That if I hadn't skipped my lecture, had taken a later bus, had gotten off a stop closer to home, things might have ended differently.

    Yet what happened was outside of any mortal control. Maybe it had been an accident; simply a small hole in the fabric of existence I had happened to fall through where others hadn’t.

    Either way, I ended up in a place from whence I could never return.

    My soul torn asunder and sewn to another.

    And perhaps I was better for it.

    Even if I was dead.

    -

    Or: a mortal dies and a mountain, once prosperous, grown from a chasm, now lays desolate; housing only a dragon, an ethereal jewel, and purpose.

    Summary

    He sits in vast halls of stone, a golden crown upon his head and capes of fur on his back. He sits, resplendent, on a high throne, with the Arkenstone behind his head. He rules Erebor with a fist of iron and a will of steel. He is the most powerful dwarf in all of Middle-Earth. He is King under the Mountain.
    Erebor's gates have been sealed for years, and not a soul has been seen entering or leaving. The King under the Mountain has severed ties between him and all of Middle-Earth. He is mad with power, drunk on the sheer volume of what he possesses. The Elvenking Thranduil has vanished into Mirkwood; Bard, the Lord of Dale, has lost everything; and Esgaroth fell long ago. None would dare enter the Mountain, not while Thorin Oakenshield still lives.
    But when unbidden, a sole person enters Erebor with a purpose and a motive that don't quite match, the tide begins to turn slowly but surely. Unbeknownst to them, they are about to step into the most dangerous game ever played—the game of chance.

    Summary

    From that sparse information Gandalf supplemented him with about halflings, Thorin expected some soft creature that would cower under his gaze when he knocked on the door of Bag End. What he certainly didn’t anticipate at all was witnessing a mildly annoyed hobbit female berating his rowdy nephews who looked genuinely ashamed of their behaviour for once, when she yanked the door open. Thorin finds himself drawn to the short-tempered hobbit almost immediately, his denial about her being his One not lasting very long. But how does one go about impressing someone who seems to be completely unimpressed even by the prospect of facing a fire-breathing dragon? And what’s with that creepily accurate foresight of hers?

    Or what if the things were the other way around and it would be a dwarven king hopelessly in love being pushed away by a witty hobbit burglar who hides a rather unique trait?

    NOTE 21st April 2017:
    I had to take a short break from this whole Hobbit/LOTR universe, it was sorta bordering with obsession sooo... Yeah. Now I'm kinda re-obsessed with Naruto-verse. No need to fret though, the story definitely WILL be finished at some point, just be a bit patient with me, please. :) Thanks a whole lot! <3
