    Summary

    This whole thing sprang from a prompt wherein someone saw Loki being mistreated, myth-style, and stepped in to stop it. That's Chapter 1 of the first story. Everything else in that story is the fallout from that moment. The rest of the series grew from there. It's mainly about Loki growing up in a home where he enjoys a completely different relationship to his father.

    Summary

    At first, Bilbo is very glad to hear of the new alliance between Erebor and the Shire. He is even more excited when he learns that some of his family members are coming to the Lonely Mountain to discuss the details.

    That is, until the dwarves (and Thorin, who is decidedly not and never shall be his) start getting along a little too well with one of his more adventurous cousins, and Bilbo starts doubting about his place.

    Summary

    There is a windowsill, that still catches the sunlight sometimes. Shells and river stones litter the surface, and some careful hand has moved them into the patterns of the constellations, both those still in view and some that have disappeared. Between them, small seedlings are planted in old containers, sometimes even in the deeper shells themselves. There is a fine layer of dust covering them; the room inside it still and quiet. The seeds struggle to grow; they are brown, and weak.

    In which mankind forgets, civilisation crumbles, and three nymphs are left behind to watch it all, together.

    Summary

    "Terroir - the characteristic taste and flavor imparted to a wine by the environment in which it is produced."

    It's almost the tourist season in the wine country, and Greenwood Cellars is gearing up for its busiest time of year. The new Blue Mountain Public House threatens to disrupt decades of tradition - this is wine country, after all.
    Aragorn is running for County Sheriff on a platform of community policing - but he's running against his boss.
    Eowyn feels trapped in the family business, and thinks the handsome young motorcycle cop is her ticket out.
    And Gandalf is selling his fireworks, like he always has, even though there's no way they should be legal.

    The story of a town, and the people who want to make it better, and what happens in one tourist season.
