    Summary

    Late Halloween treat!
    Modern!AU. Bilbo’s life is a series of mistakes.
    First, he means to become a writer but he has taken up an internship at Erebor Inc. at Gandalf’s insistence and now he spends most of his time trying not to make a disgrace of himself.
    Second, he wanted to dress up as a werewolf for the Halloween party and he has ended up looking like a guinea pig (Bofur’s words).
    Third, he might be (hopelessly) in love with his boss.

    Summary

    Inspired by this luscious fan art by Aegilef. It's just utterly gorgeous, and how could my imagination not take me somewhere.

    And I think that somewhere is Laketown, and Thorin suggests that Bilbo go to bed. Very suggestively suggests.

    Summary

    The problem, Bilbo would later tell Gandalf in aggrieved irritation, was not so much the unannounced visitors, oh no, but the fact that due to the lateness of the hour and sheer merciless fate, it came to be that at the respectable age of forty, Bilbo was being introduced to a real, live king while wearing striped pyjamas and fluffy slippers.

    Summary

    Thorin jammed his phone back into his coat with a touch more force than was really necessary as he let himself into his penthouse apartment at the top of Erebor Tower. A disastrous day reassuring shareholders over the ramifications of the Keystone executive decision - which in Thorin’s opinion had no real fucking bearing on Erebor Inc at all, so fucking what if the Obama administration was pushing a climate change agenda - had culminated in that ridiculous Independent tweet fiasco.

    Which had naturally, given the nature of the internet, promptly gone viral. Thorin was going to murder the editor at the Independent. Slowly. Contemplating the intricacies of hiring professional hitmen, Thorin shouldered off his suit jacket, stalking over to his bedroom to hang it on the rack, and stopped dead on his way through the living room when he saw Bilbo in the kitchen, produce arranged in neat piles on the benchtop, arms dusty with flour to the elbows, shirt sleeves rolled high.

    Summary

    “Would you stop staring,” Bilbo hissed, for the fifth time since service had started. “He’s not about to grow horns.”

    Bofur looked guiltily away from the door, and scuttled back over to the tail end of appetiser prep. “Just checkin’ if he liked the amuse-bouche.”

    “Well,” Bilbo scowled, “We have an entire restaurant to feed, not just Mister Durin, and Lobelia’s in a fine mood tonight, so if I don’t keep you at prep, she’ll light your tail with the blowtorch, I don’t wonder.”
