    Summary

    There are many trials for a hobbit attempting to make a life among dwarves. A hobbit wants a garden. A hobbit wants to eat regular meals. A hobbit wants friends, good books, and comfortable chairs. Bilbo does his best to carve out a little hobbit life for himself in the mountain. If only there were not one final obstacle. For a hobbit heart wants love, and among dwarves that is a sticky subject.

    Summary

    At no point in the accidental usurpation of Thorin as leader of The Company and the quest for Erebor, did Bilbo intend for this to turn into an exploration of cultural differences (and something that almost feels like group therapy). For some reason, the Dwarrows aren't complaining, and Bilbo isn't going to question it, as long as the lumoxes behave themselves and do as they're told.

    Who knows, they all might yet survive this insane journey.

    (Or, where Bilbo decides the Dwarves are all too stupid for him to endure this ridiculousness anymore and Does It Hobbit and the Dwarves suddenly get affectionate.)

    *Please note, within this story there are mentions of the underage rape and subsequent pregnancy of an off-screen character. Mentions are brief in chapter 2, and a little more in depth chapter 4. While details are light and are more discussions of emotional aftermath, this may still be distressing to read for those with triggers. Please be cautious.

    Summary

    Bilbo liked Erebor, he really did. Even if everyone seemed convinced he was going to leave.

    In which soil causes international incidents, Thorin is over-dramatic, and dwarves are rubbish at keeping secrets. Oh, and they build a garden. Eventually.

    Summary

    "I must say, I am rather pleased that you remember me,” said Gandalf.
    “I never forget a face,” Bilbo joked, still entirely at ease. After several moment of silence, Bilbo opened his eyes to find Gandalf eyeing him quizzically. “Is something the matter?” he asked with a hint of annoyance. Why is it that he had not been dead for five minutes and this damned wizard was already causing a fuss.
    “That remains to be seen. I am looking for someone to share in an adventure.”
    “My dear friend, I am much too old now for adventures," Bilbo said with a laugh.

    OR:

    Yet another Time Travel fic in which Bilbo is very sad and a bit of a dick.
