    Summary

    Young Bilbo Baggins has a turbulent encounter with an odd creature in the snow a few years after the Fell Winter took his parents. It had been injured and seemed to be starving, and Bilbo, in a fit of Tookish foolishness, takes it in.
    As it turns out, the creature is a dwarf, but dirtier than any faunt could ever hope to be, with fingernails like claws, a bearskin over his shoulders and manners like a wild beast. His frustrating guest refuses to bathe, or sleep anywhere but the floor, growls more than he talks, and keeps his many fearsome weapons constantly within reach.
    And when the winter storms start to rage outside, Bilbo has no choice but to share his smial with this possibly mad and rather dangerous dwarf.
    Just what has he gotten himself into?

    Summary

    As much as he might like to cut a natty figure in a proper waistcoat and trousers with a reasonable inseam, Bilbo knew there were many more important things to bother with at the moment.

    Rebuilding an entire dwarven kingdom, for one. And airing out the stink of dragon would be nice as well.

    Summary

    “What is that?”
    Thorin follows his gaze. “Oh, that. During the fight with Azog he stabbed me through the foot from beneath the ice.”
    “He did what?!” Bilbo near yelps, and sure enough, now that he looks closer he can see where Azog’s blade must have pierced the top of the boot. Valar above, it had cleaved straight through. “Thorin, why in Eru’s name hasn’t this been looked at?”
    Thorin stares at him like he had forgotten Bilbo was an idiot. “I expect Óin had more pressing matters to attend to. Like, I suppose, the mortal stab wound in my chest.”
    _

    Or, where some things get lost in translation, courting mishaps have the whole kingdom losing their minds, and simple acts of kindness and love can go a long way.
