  1. Summary

    in the unsalvageable dregs, we agreed on one thing
    at least: i was something
    made of glass (you meaning
    fragile and smudged with fingerprints
    and i meaning shattered
    and sharp and dangerous)
    you’re a mess, honey -
    you never know
    you’ve broken something
    until you’re
    dripping red and lonely.
    - elisabeth hewer

    This is my self-indulgent series featuring Mihra Tabris, an elven rogue with a vengeful streak as long as the Imperial Highway and explicitly half-elven Alistair who has spent his life chasing the ghost of his Warden mother. Expect late-game asexual Tabris/Alistair as the main ship.

    Series title from Maya Angelou's Still I Rise.

    Summary

    Sometimes, Bilbo finds, not everything goes according to plan.

    First an injury and the coming winter delay his leaving Erebor, then word from the Shire leaves him mourning his beloved Bag End. And because getting added to Thorin's council isn't trouble enough, Kili is in love with an elf, Fili may or may not have his eyes on a certain little scribe, everyone seems to think he is a lady hobbit, and Thorin needs to find someone to marry.

    Okay. So the last part might not be trouble, exactly, except for the part where it makes Bilbo's rather hopeless attachment even more painful. Or it wouldn't if he hadn't possibly accidentally promised to provide Thorin with an heir... and Dáin just might still be scheming something.

    Fortunately, if there's one thing hobbits are good at, it's growing things. And Thorin did promise him a garden.

    Summary

    Parson gestures with his spoon toward Hawke. “So am I allowed to ask about the service dog or is that not PC?”

    “My medical history is more of a 3rd date conversation," Eli says.

    “Oh? Why’s that?”

    “Because. No one sticks around afterward and I like to live in glorious denial for a short period beforehand.”

    It comes out more self-deprecating than he intended.

    Parson looks…thoughtful. “Well, does this count as one or two?

    “Pardon?”

    “This. Ice cream. I mean, technically it’s a second location, but still the same night. So is this one date or two?”

    “One,” Eli says firmly. “If it’s happening within the same three-hour period.”

    “You’re the expert,” Parson says, which, he’s really, really, not, but ok.

    “So still two dates to go then?” Parson continues.

    “I—what?”

    “We’ve got a roadie coming up but then we’re home for almost two weeks. When does your semester start?”

    “You want to do this again?” Eli asks.

    Parson stops idly twirling his spoon.

    “You don’t?”

    He does, Eli realizes. He really does. Because apparently he actually likes Kent fucking Parson.
