    It started in Rivendell, where eyes followed Bilbo wherever he went. It happened again at Beorn's, and a third at Mirkwood. By the time they arrived at Bard's, Bilbo demanded an explanation.

    Summary

    “It’s something I’ve been working on, for Thorin. It’s a … chronicle. Of our adventure.” Bilbo thought that would be fine thing for Thorin to have, but suddenly he found himself wondering if it was a suitable gift for a king. “That is… right, isn’t it?”

    “Yes,” Kíli said eagerly. He was practically glowing. “Since you’re not one for dwarven crafts, that is. It’s a work of your hands and a very symbolic one too. It’s perfectly appropriate.”

    Bilbo glanced at Fíli for confirmation, and found him unusually pale. But then, Kíli was elbowing him rather hard and perhaps in a place that was still tender. “Yes,” Fíli agreed at last, and conjured a slow smile. “It’s appropriate.”

    Bilbo's fake-it-'til-you-make-it interpretation of dwarven culture is working quite well for him, thank you very much- all the way up until it really, really isn't.

    Summary

    Finally giving into his growing waistline, Bilbo agrees to try exercising more regularly. He decides to start with yoga, to ease himself into an active lifestyle. Bilbo just did not take into account how attractive the instructor would be, and how Thorin makes yoga anything but easy.

    Pros: Actually getting relatively in shape and enjoying it.
    Cons: Being hopelessly enamored with the instructor who does the impossible and makes neon work.

    Summary

    Almost a year has gone past since the Battle of Five Armies and Bilbo is still very much mourning for Thorin, who died of his injuries on the battlefield before Bilbo had a chance to say goodbye or try to make amends with him.

    When he receives an invitation to a special memorial to commemorate all those who died, Bilbo knows he cannot go. The memories are still too raw and painful.

    So he writes a heartfelt letter to Fili, the new king of Erebor, explaining his absence.

    Fili, however, is not the one who reads the letter...
