    Summary

    Bilbo is the Storyteller of Hobbiton and a dragon in disguise (not that the dwarves know this). When he goes with the dwarves, it's for personal reasons, and they aren't ones he's telling. He knows of many things, and keeps only the most dangerous of friends. He is Master Nobody. Thus begins the journey of thirteen dwarves and a hobbit with no real name and no past to speak of.
    They came for a burglar, and they got an enigma.

    Summary

    Frodo loses his parents at a very young age but has the fortune to be adopted by his highly spirited Uncle Bilbo.

    Raised under loving care at Bag End, the fauntling blossoms into a kind and empathic young hobbit who gets only sad when he witnesses his uncle’s occasional bouts of melancholy. The desire to uncover the reasons for Bilbo’s sadness eventually leads to a story about his uncle’s adventure with Gandalf and a dwarven company - without the unhappy ending, of course (Frodo is only 14, Bilbo will have you know!).

    Frodo wants to know everything about the dwarrows that his uncle traveled with but Bilbo always turns his answers into stories about cranky fire breathing dragons, irrepressible wizards, and the lyrical beauty of Rivendell. What is a fauntling to do when he is convinced that there is only one thing that can make Uncle Bilbo happy again?

    Summary

    Death has an appointment to keep in the Shire, but nothing involving a Wizard is ever straight forward. Thorin isn’t sure why this should even surprise him.

    "You wish me to protect someone in some way you can't explain, on the promise that I will know when I'm needed and my debt is repaid?"

    "Exactly." The Wizard smiled enigmatically.

    Summary

    Bilbo Baggins doesn't fit in in the Shire. He's not a normal hobbit. That doesn't bother him.

    Having his warnings ignored? Trying to help those who will not help themselves?

    That bothers him.

    Summary

    Business pulls Bilbo to the town of Scary, but it is the journey home that changes everything for Bilbo. Family, it seems, comes in many forms, and quite possibly in the form of a scarred, silent shade of a Dwarrow Bilbo finds in a ditch.

    Family, though, is a tricky thing, and there's fun to be had when they come looking for their kin.
