    Summary

    ‘We may have won the battle, but I fear the war with winter is just beginning.’

    The aftermath of war is no laughing matter. Those who died must be honoured, those who are wounded must be healed, and those who remain need food and clothing, peace and sanctuary. With Thorin's life hanging in the balance, it is up to Bilbo and the rest of the Company to rule the rag-tag remnants of Erebor in his place.

    Then there is the matter of the gold...

    Can Bilbo save both king and kingdom, or is Erebor destined to fall deeper into ruin?

    Summary

    Tony Stark is dead.

    Or, at least, that's what the world believes - that the great Iron Man was killed by Captain America in the Civil War. But if there's anything Tony Stark has proven over the years, it's that he's difficult to kill. And if there's anything Steve Rogers has proven over the years, it's that he's not a murderer.

    Summary

    Naruto never had much growing up. Even later, he only managed to keep hold of one thing. His name, his history, his sense of self. Time eventually managed to take that from him, too. But he gets something back for it.

    He gets more time. He gets the chance to change everything.

    Unfortunately for him, Naruto has absolutely no idea where to start.

    (Shikamaru always said the best laid plans never survived contact with enemy)

    Summary

    “For things are made to endure in the Shire, passing from one generation to the next.” – Fellowship of the Ring
    Hobbits are not what the others races believe. Crafted by the Valar and blessed with inherited magics called knacks, Hobbits have been ensuring the peace between the Free Peoples for a long time. No one else knows and Hobbits are content to keep it that way. However, years ago Shire life was disrupted by the marriage of Gerontius Took to Adamanta Chubb, originally known as the dragon Arradeth. Years later Bilbo Baggins is paying the price of being an odd hobbit, having inherited both Took and Baggins knacks along with his grandmother’s blood, and is the only one of her line to also have a dragon form. Now Gandalf the Grey is once again in need of a hobbit for an adventure and Bilbo must decide. Should he accompany the wizard and his group, face a dragon, and risk revealing Shire and family secrets? Or does he abandon his people’s sacred purpose and allow a stubborn king to send part of Middle Earth into war? Not to mention that if Bilbo does go he risks not only his life, but losing his dragon Heart to a band of suicidal dwarves. Either way, the choice of Bilbo Baggins may rule the fate of all Middle Earth.
