  2. Summary

    People are saying that Hobbit stories are fading away. Yeah, right. Tell that to my muses!

    I work with 3 – 5 players in my head at any time. As I get “more skillful” at “casting” my “players”, i.e. rabid dwarven muses, I get too many stories in my head. To avoid the “agony” of forgetting them, I started this new series. Each story fragment is a WIP that will be updated whenever my muses get out of hand. Stories that are actually completed will “graduate” out of this series. Be warned that this is a series written so that I don’t forget ideas, not because I’ve started another serious writing project. My main stories still get priority writing time.

    “Each writer is born with a repertory company in his head. Shakespeare has perhaps 20 players. …I have 10 or so, and that’s a lot. As you get older, you become more skillful at casting them.” Gore Vidal
    Repertory theater – A resident company of actors that presents several different plays etc. at one theater.
    “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” Maya Angelou

  4. Summary

    Bain has a new hobby! A written radio show. Interested readers are to submit the name of a dwarf from Thorin's Company and a specific holiday themed song for each edition. They can also add a prompt if they have an idea for a story. The chosen character will appear in a story based on the lyrics of the chosen song, which will be updated on the holiday. There will be a different guest cohost each edition. The other dwarves are reluctant to participate, so Balin does a bit of burgling to "borrow" their most precious belongings to ensure a lively show. Tune in!

    This is based off of Casey Kasem's radio countdown show that used to air on Sunday nights when I was a kid.

    Summary

    “Far across the stars, in a region of space known in the Federation as the Triangle, and specifically in the Celindi nebula, lies a small Minshara class world,” Gandalf said, pointing at a planet near the center of the map.
    “‘The Lonely Planet’?” Bilbo read.
    ---
    Bilbo Baggins finds his life turned upside down when an old friend shows up with a group of Klingons and an adventure to be had, and discovers things amongst the stars he never could have imagined: strange new worlds, new friends, new enemies, and a strange object that enhances his telepathy. What can possibly go wrong?

    Summary

    After taking that nasty blow to the head, Bilbo wakes to the quiet, grey landscape atop Raven Hill, made only quieter and greyer by the shifting shadows of his little magic ring – only the ring isn't on his finger anymore, and there's another Bilbo Baggins lying at his feet, unconscious in the freezing twilight, whom Bilbo's hands pass right through when he tries to retake control of his body.

    Incorporeal and unseen, Bilbo must find his friends in the aftermath of the Battle of Five Armies and, somehow, bring back help before the cold night – or the cold of the ring – consumes him.

    Summary

    Bilbo Baggins understands a lot about his part of the world. The other parts are up for debate. Especially with Westron. He knows his mother would be turning in her grave if he turned this down because he couldn't understand everything that was being said, but is it really worth putting up with the suspicious nature of dwarves? Is it really worth the risk of all of Middle Earth finding out the only secret left?
