    Bridal Veil (Lapin) series contains four stories - Something Blue being the first and my favorite. The premise is set after the Quest where Bilbo and Thorin married while Thorin laid injured after the Battle of the Five Armies. Its been some time but Bilbo believes the two are married out of convenience but discovers that is not the case - Thorin married him for love as Bilbo is his one. I love the little details that build from the misunderstanding but, in hindsight, realize were Thorin trying to show Bilbo the depth of his feelings such as seeking him out always, forging him gardening tools and purchasing him roses for his terrace garden. The sapphire ring, purported to be given as a romantic gesture, is revealed to be true and fully sentimental in the giving; not just a convenient ring. Also happening is the courtship of Fili and Ori, Kili deciding if he could like one of Dain's people (Lady Balar), and the troubled relationship of Nori and Dawlin. I love Something Old for the inner details of Nori's weaving, Dori brushing his hair, and the creation of their marriage offerings for Ori and Fili. Only given a mention in the last story is the intriguing hints of a Dori and Bifur relationship that I wouldn't have minded more details of.

    Summary

    Harry and several others he knew ingested love potions; great—he could deal with that. But knowing that he found this out before and the people he trusted erased his memory and sent him back in time to relive his worst nightmare, again and again? Not this time if Harry Potter had anything to say about it!

    Greater Than, Lesser Be (wrting_as_tracey (Kneazle)) has got to be one of my favorite Harry time travels (technically he goes into an alternate university due to changing elements in a ritual). Its mostly the fact in how original the plot is because instead of immediately deciding to raise himself or even directly involve himself with his younger version he works to give young Harry a future. With Remus Lupin's help they create Cloak & Dagger where with 7 loyal employees they create and prepare for Harry, now called Houdini, to confront Voldermort after the rebirth ritual at the end of the TriWizard Tournament. Harry succeeds and even manages o go back to his own time (and I wish we could see the results of him getting revenge/justice as well as if the bigger conspiracy would have been revealed).

    Summary

    “I apologize.” The cop finally looked back up at his face, seeming thrilled. “It’s just—it’s been so long. And we finally have you.”

    That was a bad word. Not found.

    Have.

    Stiles wrenched his hand free and took a step back, but before he could even think up a gameplan, he felt a prick in his neck and jerked away, reaching up to slap one hand against it and twisting in the same moment.

    One of the others had come up behind him while he hadn’t been paying attention, and his vision began to swim even as his eyes caught sight of the half-empty syringe the guy was holding.

    Actions Speak Louder than Words (iisthatbloodonhisshirt (wasterella)) is brilliant! In an alternate setting the supernatural is common place to the point that its tightly intermingled with plain humans (to the point that at completely baseline human is probably rare) but society is still very modern day. The major difference is that with supernaturals being known that rare supernaturals are truly that and coveted highly by some people. The rarest and most coveted being Sparks - and Stiles is the last known living one. The story is such a great action and romance - the suspense of not only Stiles and Derek getting together but also Stiles figuring out his powers to protect himself is felt through the whole story. I love when Stiles hits his stride and even turns his energy in helping other supernaturals out of being caged up as prizes.

    Summary

    This time he would not let Thorin fall to madness.
    This time he would not let them die.
    This time he knew he could handle it.
    This time he would not tolerate the wizard's carelessness.
    This time he would claim what was his.
    Bilbo Baggins was definitely not the hobbit Gandalf expected to find.

    Getting it Right (lindajenner) is a fun time travel story! Bilbo awakens in the past and has several months to prepare for the Quest for Erebor as well as being tasked with the destruction of the ring. He's not the only one to awaken in the past and so has many allies to help him along. One being Thorin and so they two are finally able to be together like they were not in the past (as well as Fili and Kili surviving and having families). Not only do they succeed in their goals but they manage to save Smaug and have her be on their side. This results in her eggs bonding with members of the group - Bilbo gaining a bonded companion in a blue dragon named Rûkhuz.

    Summary

    “Don’t worry, Scott caught me up on everything,” Kira assures with a bubbly smile via video-chat. “You and Derek, huh? I probably should have seen that coming. I always thought it might be Cora, but Derek was the one that looked at you how I used to look at you.”

    Stiles goes a little pink. “It’s still kinda new but, yeah. I really like him. He’s...” Beautiful. Patient. Smart. Painfully honest. Sweet. “...a total dork.”

    Kira laughs and laughs. When she gets herself together, she replies, “Yeah, those little hearts and stars in your eyes definitely say different."

    or

    Stiles moves from the shiny, fast-paced lifestyle of Los Angeles to the foggy, sleepy town of Beacon Hills so his dad can become the new sheriff. Newly fifteen, he does his best to finish out his freshman year of high school (by staying under the radar) when he suddenly becomes the Beyoncé of the Supernatural community. And, without much prompting on his part, he ends up catching the eye of one of the most prominent Werewolf families in all of North America. It literally all starts with a stuffed animal(s).

    Bookmarker's Notes

    it came from the trees (whatshouldntbe) hits some of my favorite tropes for Teen Wolf (Beacon Hills being an open secret of supernaturals, Stiles being something nonhuman and Stiles moving to Beacon Hills). I am fascinated by the original plot and wish to know everything about Virtues & Vices. What it really means for Stiles to be a Seven of Virtues. I adore the way the family dynamics are written between Stiles, Issac and the Sheriff. Also just how neat everyone becomes friends even with Stiles being a bit older than his canon friends (while same age as Cora and a bit younger then Derek and Laura). Also Stiles having a magic tree called Nana is great.
