    Summary

    "Many's the talk I had with [Bilbo] when I was a little lad" Sam Gamgee says, and then much later: "I wonder if we shall ever be put into songs or tales...you know, told by the fireside, or read out of a great big book."

    So here is young Sam Gamgee hearing far-off tales of Elves, Bilbo Baggins, trying to piece together the tale of the Silmarils for the first time, Frodo Baggins being a wild young mushroom-stealing tearaway who matures into an earnest scholar, and Merry Brandybuck and Sam Gamgee getting started on their great Conspiracy.

    Summary

    On a walk in the forest, a beautiful spring morning, Bilbo remembers something his mother told him a few weeks ago...

    “It is your choice Bilbo, no one else decides if you should marry or not, and certainly not who you marry. I only wish for you to be happy, my darling. And for all we know, the idiot might be stuck in a tree, and needs your help.”

    Summary

    Breeah Baggins is not like others of Middle-Earth. She is a mix of both Hobbit and Dwarf and some even thought she might have some Elf in her because her features were far more delicate then any Hobbit or Dwarf they have ever met. She was adopted by Belladonna Took and Bungo Baggins after her mother mysteriously disappeared and 5 years before Bilbo was born and her father is gone. What will happen when Breeah comes home after a long walk and finds herself face to face with a Wizard that has a crazy idea and rambunctious Dwarves begin invading hers and Bilbo's home.

    Summary

    Drafting a contract is a gravely serious task in Dwarrow culture; a contract concerning courtship, betrothal, and marriage even more so. Bilbo, the formerly respectable Hobbit of Bag End, was no stranger to the business of contracts, although he seemed to have underestimated the vigor with which the scribes of Erebor took to their task. Despite Dwarven confusion, there are some things a Hobbit simply requires, even if that Hobbit will live in Erebor.

    Summary

    Bilbo was going to find the elves!

    He had looked around as many trees as he could, and in as many dales, and by little creeks, and near rabbit holes, and he just couldn't find any elves. They were out there! He had heard their songs before when he had gone walking with his mother one afternoon. But now he heard nothing but the rustling of leaves, the chattering of squirrels in the trees, the twittering of birdsong, and someone crying...

    Summary

    Thorin was closed and quiet, bent low under the weight of Fíli and Kíli's memory. For his two weeks in the Shire, he had never spoken of them, never mentioned their names, never told Bilbo how they had died—but the evening before the Dwarves were set to leave, the walls that Thorin had set up around himself began to crumble.

    Summary

    Sam finishes the poem as Frodo watches the space beyond him. He doesn’t want to stare at Sam, or he’ll really cry. He breathes in and out and does arithmetic in his head.

    ‘That was beautiful, Sam,’ he says, when Sam has finished.

    Sam stands on the rug, blushing and nodding and uncertain. He fumbles with the pages.

    ‘Perhaps something else?’ Sam says.

    ‘Perhaps a love story,’ Frodo says, and wind rattles the chimney.

    Summary

    When Thorin grudgingly decided to visit his sister and her family in the Shire, he expected to find a slow, sleepy town out in the country.

    He had not expected that the seemingly peaceful Shire covered a dark secret. And he had certainly not expected to develop feelings for a small, curly-haired man. Nor for the same man to somehow be deeply connected to a series of strange and frightening disappearances.

    Summary

    Bungo shifted the pumpkin in his arms and looked down at the boy in his lopsided wizard’s hat, his beard now dangling around his neck like a fur collar. Although he would never consider parenting a competition, he would be lying if he said he didn’t occasionally worry that Belladonna was winning it anyway.
