    Summary

    Perhaps by carrying two such unusual riders, this horse has become something like them. Growing Elflike and Dwarflike together: some of Gimli's stout loyalty and stubbornness, some of Legolas' free light humour and wild spirit. Something remarkable.

    Or perhaps he was always remarkable, and it took the travels of an Elf and Dwarf to bring it to light.

    Summary

    The king has a nephew: a young, skinny thing with dark hair and dark eyes. He looks like any other young dwarf--not yet grown, and not yet much of anything at all. He is undiscovered potential, perhaps--that may be what the king sees in him, because the king treats him gently. The king smiles at him, and touches his hair, and gives praise and reprimands in equal measure.

    The king has a lion, too: a massive beast, with a thick, coarse mane the color of amber and wheat. The lion’s paws are thrice the size of any dwarf’s hands, and when it yawns, its mouth is red and its teeth are white. It follows the king’s nephew like a dog, and its withers are at a height with the nephew’s shoulders.

    It's like the bastard child of Bisclavret and The Hobbit. It's nominally a shapeshifting AU, but in truth, it's all fairytales and lais and (skin-based) shapeshifters, and implied torture and mutilation. And like, so much god damned symbolism. I’m sorry. I got a bit carried away.

    Being the story where Bilbo Baggin’s devoted pet wolf Bernard manages to bite someone from nearly every race on Middle Earth, so long as one counts the nip he managed to Lobelia’s leg, and Bernard certainly does.

    Summary

    With Thorin working so many nights, Bilbo accepts a kitten as a companion. However, Thorin is absolutely confounded by this creature that doesn't speak any language he knows. How do you bond with a creature that doesn't speak? And what do you mean 'not a working animal'?

    Bilbo adopts a pet and Thorin must adapt.

    That might be easier said than done.
