    Summary

    Bilbo Baggins has been a hobbit for many long years and he should very much like to keep it that way, thank you very much.

    An old friend drops by Bag End with the offer of an adventure and despite Bilbo's refusal, the idea of only thirteen dwarves and a wizard facing a dragon may just convince him yet. After all, he has experience with the Great Dragons of the North. Once upon a time, he was one.

    Summary

    "Bilbo never bothers denying that he is a slight, little bit, probably infatuated with Thorin. It’s not something that bothers him. Really. He’s pretty sure that everyone very likely has a little flutter in their chest for the dwarf. He’s something grand and unattainable.

    And it’s really much safer if it stays that way."

    Summary

    There's a certain point where you can no longer ask someone what their name is. Thorin isn't sure exactly when that point is, but he knows that it's probably some time before the person in question saves your life. On the far side of the Misty Mountains, Thorin realizes that he never quite caught the first part of Mr. Baggins' name, and he finds that it's astonishingly harder to learn than he would have thought. Fili, Kili, and Dwalin are no help whatsoever.

    Summary

    On the quest, Kili and Fili get homesick. And they're not alone in it. Of course, they're too grown up to tell Thorin about this. But casually moving their bed-rolls so that they're sandwiching him? That's okay.

    Summary

    "Halfling" is considered an insult in the Shire. Of course, Big Folk (and dwarves) know far less than they think they do, so this fact eludes them. It especially eludes Thorin Oakenshield, so if Bilbo decides to use a Hobbit means of communicating his irritation, who can blame him?
