    Summary

    Life in the Nova Corps meant odd hours and often random meal times, but this suited Garthan, most days. It meant that Errin's stall was quiet whenever he swung by, save for the odd tourist or two, and Errin knew better than to try small talk on an off-hours Corpsman trying to have a good meal in a bit of peace before going back on the beat.

    Today, Garthan made it midway through the bowl before his perfect daily moment of peace was ruined by a tourist. Off-worlders were common on Xandar: the planet was an interstellar trading hub, after all, with free trade agreements signed with most intergalactic civs, but years in the Corps had given Garthan a healthy understanding of trouble, and this tourist positively reeked of it.

    Summary

    ‘We may have won the battle, but I fear the war with winter is just beginning.’

     

    The aftermath of war is no laughing matter. Those who died must be honoured, those who are wounded must be healed, and those who remain need food and clothing, peace and sanctuary. With Thorin's life hanging in the balance, it is up to Bilbo and the rest of the Company to rule the rag-tag remnants of Erebor in his place.

    Then there is the matter of the gold...

    Can Bilbo save both king and kingdom, or is Erebor destined to fall deeper into ruin?

    Summary

    It seemed very possible Thorin had irritated someone with magic. He had no clue what he had done, but there was only so long he could ignore the signs.

    The air grew warm around them, far from pleasantly. The lady stood taller and raised her hand. She ran it over his body, hovering just above him, and sang something in a language that he couldn’t understand. His skin tingled at the words and it felt like there was a vise squeezing at his heart. He gasped vainly for air while his side flared with pain and the lady’s eyes met his.

    “Hear me now, stone-tender. You will walk this earth, doomed to see and absorb what you fear until you embrace it. Until you can speak your heart and understand the heart of others, you will lack the control you so cling to.”

    All he had wanted to do was rebuild Erebor. Now it looked like he would have to battle the emotions of everyone in the Lonely Mountain to do so.

    He really hated elves. And magic.
