    Summary

    Five years after the War of the Ring, rumors have been spread all around Middle-Earth that the lords of Aglarond and Ithilien are closer than mere friendship. Threatened by Legolas and Gimli's obvious preference for doing business with one another, the leaders of Erebor and Mirkwood turn suspicious eyes to their trading relationships.

    Infuriated by the rumors and scheming, Legolas and Gimli decide to pretend they're married in order to prove that their realms would treat fairly with others no matter what. But can they maintain the deception? Will it end their legendary friendship-- or could it lead to more?

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This engaging work in progress is a classic reworking of a classic trope. Rich with detail of the heroes' endeavors, politics and UST!

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This story captures the poignant potential of these two damaged heroes (or hero and antihero if you like) that's *there* in the best of Game of Thrones but likely to get trampled in the rush to canon finale.

    What might have been, had things gone differently, had news come sooner, when Jaime and Brienne met again at Riverrun.

    Summary

    The Valar work mysterious ways and it is not up to the Eldar to question them... unless you have to deal with reborn Fëanaro.

    Summary

    “Why not a hook, though?” Brienne said, and Jaime followed her gaze to the golden hand covering his stump. He paused, and she added, “It’s pretty, but it’s not much use, is it?"

    Summary

    Belladonna has been waiting for her only son Bilbo to join her in Yavanna's pastures for many years, but it doesn't quite turn out the way she'd hoped. It seems love and adventures can change a hobbit in quite different ways.

    Endless, endless thanks to H. Savinien for their wonderful beta-ing!

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A fresh take on an after-life fix it for Bilbo and Thorin, in which Belladonna Took Baggins takes a surprisingly large role. Manages to be absolutely hobbitish without being fluff. Wonderful vivid details and world-building, and great epilogue!
