    Summary

    For Dwarves, braids can carry many meanings depending on their number, style, and position. Bilbo is obviously ignorant of such things, which ends up working well for Thorin. What Bilbo doesn't know won't hurt her, after all.

    That doesn't mean that Bilbo won't be out to hurt someone (Thorin) when she finds out.

    Summary

    Princess Bilba Baggins understands the expectations placed upon her. She knows that, upon reaching her majority, she will be expected to enter into an arranged marriage, one that will most benefit the future stability and security of the Shire. She understands this, though it saddens her to think she will have to leave the Shire, possibly forever, when this day arrives. Still, it is her duty and obligation as a Princess and, to that end, she will accept it.

    Or, at least that's how she felt until the day she went walking and met Hobbiton's new blacksmith.

    Summary

    Thorin does not like the idea of taking a gentle soul from the gentle hills that spawned him only to face certain death. He has too much weighing on him already and his people at least are of hardy Dwarfish stock.

    All Dwarves are born to be craftsmen and warriors, to wield both hammer and axe in service of their homes. They may be tinkers, toy makers, and untested youths now but that will change. The seeds of something greater lurks in each of them and is only waiting for the right chance to grow.

    It doesn’t occur to him until many months and miles will have gone by that the same could be said of their Halfling.

    Summary

    Sometimes it feels like she’s trying so hard and she just can’t, she can’t. And suddenly everything's just – just too much, and somehow Tony’s got her face down on the workbench, arms curled around her head, big helpless shuddering sobs rising up in her chest.

    Because Steve - it doesn't matter what Tony does, Steve’ll still just think she’s selfish and too loud and a show-off, and it doesn’t matter, she doesn’t care, Tony doesn’t care what Steve thinks.

    It’s – it’s just, she’s so lonely, so bloody lonely. And she shudders and sniffles again and presses her face pathetically into her arms.
