    Summary

    He went to sleep that night numb, Ori pressed against his back and Nori behind him, with the smell of death still around him and did not dream.

    When he woke up the air was clear, the sky still dark and he was bedded down in armor he had not been wearing. Pushing himself up too abruptly, he rubbed a hand over his eyes and looked around at the guard tower in Erebor where they had bedded down and waited for war to come to them.

    Thorin stood, framed against where the dawn was starting to appear, talking quietly to the raven and Dori could not breathe. His fingers were shaking against the cold stone and he could not catch his breath for Thorin stood alive in front of him, hair long and not matted down in blood, flesh and body whole.

    (Groundhog Day AU in which Dori relives the Battle of Five Armies until he gets it right)

    Summary

    Balin and Bilbo court slowly and carefully, which is as it should be, for all things come to fruit in their own good time. It is possible, however, to miss the harvest, and then winter will be upon you before you know it.

    Summary

    Or, the one in which Bilbo and Thorin get married even though they're not in love.

    He likes to think back on the days before everything became so messy, when talking to Thorin had been comfortable and easy. In Lake-town they had relaxed together over a pipe, and when Bilbo had wanted to know more about Erebor, Thorin told stories from his own childhood, sharing them without the reserve or restraint that he usually maintained over personal matters.

    He misses that time of easy camaraderie. He wonders if Thorin misses it too.

    Summary

    "„Dwalin, son of Fundin,” Dain says above him, his voice devoid of any emotion, „You are banished forthwith from the Kingdom of Erebor under pain of death.” Dwalin can almost hear the smile in his voice as he says: „Bring me his beard.”

    He can hear Balin scream, but he cannot recognize the words – blood is pounding in his ears, horror making him freeze. He closes his eyes tightly, swallows. This is what he wants, he reminds himself. This is what he deserves.

    Thorin, he thinks as one of the guards yanks his head back and puts a blade to his chin. Forgive me."

    Summary

    Thorin is fridged so his sister can take his place in the narrative, or, Queen Dís Oakenshield & Company (& Bilba) go on a quest to reclaim Erebor.

    Dís is twice as short-sighted and hostile and arrogant as her dearly-departed brother (and gets herself killed in the same quasi-tragic way) because women have the same right to character flaws.
