    Summary

    Because of changes made in the past when the Avengers reversed the Snap, anomalies occurred. A few people who “blipped” didn’t return once the Snap reversed. Likewise, a few people who died before the Snap inexplicably came back.

    One who returned was the daughter of a top lieutenant in HYDRA. Bucky Barnes knew she’d died before the Snap because he’d killed her himself. He’d been ordered to kill her along with her father who’d betrayed the terrorist organization while he was still the infamous Winter Soldier. Now she’s back, scared, and on the run from HYDRA operatives.

    As far as the world is concerned, the lovely young woman is dead. Bucky learns of her completely by chance, recognizing her delicate face as one of those who haunt the nightmares he can’t escape. He knows it’s only a matter of time before HYDRA catches her and he’s not convinced she knows anything that would earn her protection from SHIELD.

    Envious of his best friend’s newfound happiness in a relationship that didn’t have the most traditional beginning, Bucky decides to take advantage of the opportunity presented to him and take matters into his own hands…

    Summary

    Andrea thought that Thorin Oakenshield's death was fitting, beautiful, and not at all in need of changing. The old man from the bookstore thought differently.

    Andrea has been dragged, kicking and screaming, into Middle Earth. She's only there to do one thing, a thing she certainly doesn't want to die doing: save the lives of Thorin Oakenshield and his nephews.

    Summary

    The Line of Durin fell, and Bilba Baggins felt as if she fell along with them.

    Unable to find peace upon returning to the Shire, she takes to the road and spends her life alone, fighting to protect the weak, training in futility to fight a battle long since won, and to save those long since buried under stone.

    Her road is a lonely one, but one she feels she deserves for her failures to save the ones she loved.

    The One, she loved.

    She once thought she would find peace in death, and in the hope of seeing those she loved in the afterlife, but it seems even that is to be denied her, for as her eyes close in death, they open again - to find herself back in Bag End.

    And the date on the calendar is the day a wizard once appeared, and asked her to join in on an adventure.

    Summary

    Bilba has grown up the unwanted granddaughter of the Thain of the Kingdom of Shire but, as she rarely visits the palace, the relationship holds little meaning to her. Instead she focuses on her second year of college, her ballet career and her slowly burgeoning romance with Bofur, a crew member with her ballet company.

    The same day Bilba is set to preform on stage for the first time with her company, the kingdom of Shire is anticipating another event. That very evening will oversee the political, arranged marriage between Thorin Durin, Crown Prince of Erebor, and an unnamed Princess of Shire (so unnamed because Bilba's grandfather is a paranoid bastard).

    Bilba doesn't care about any of this, she hasn't been invited and has no interest in other countries, politics or other such machinations.

    Just before she's set to preform, however, Bilba suddenly finds herself dragged from the theater and taken to appear before her grandfather at the palace.

    There she is informed she WILL be participating in the wedding after all.

    As the bride.

    Whether she likes it or not.

    Summary

    Peony Baggins does not feel like she belongs in the mountain. Ever since her parents died she has longed to return to the Shire and be around the kinder hobbitfolk.
    However, after a misunderstanding, she is dragged into the politics of Erebor and the royal family and married to a dwarf who doesn’t even want to be married.
    Caught in a world she never wanted to be a part of, Peony must use all of her hobbit courtesy to stay afloat while slowly beginning to find herself at home.

    (I’m going to rework the summary later)
