    Summary

    An AU where the Lan Xichen is the Emperor; Lan Wangji is the Crown Prince; the Jin, Jiang, and Nie are Dukedoms; and even 13 years dead, Wei Wuxian is still the most feared man in all of China. Newly resurrected, Wei Wuxian would love nothing more than to cultivate a core and go become a rogue cultivator.

    Except, there's something very suspicious going on in the Imperial Palace, and while Wei Wuxian might not be able to help Lan Wangji in solving it, the unassuming and soft-spoken "Prince-Concubine Mo" sure can.

    Summary

    After the Fall of Eregion, many enchanted objects fell into the wrong hands as scavengers and treasure seekers descended upon the ruined city.

    When reports of these objects surface, it is Erestor’s job to reclaim them. It’s a nice job. Lovely scenery, no more watching his king flirt with his lord, and he gets to leave the paperwork to lesser immortals.

    It would be better, however, if Elrond had not ordered him to let a certain recently-reborn elf lord tag along...

    OR Erestor and Glorfindel’s backpacking trip of sadness and emotional support.

    Summary

    And so came it to pass that Durin the Deathless, First of Dwarrow-kind, the Eldest of the Seven Fathers, King of Khazad-dûm, found himself unrelentingly bound to a small chunk of blue stone pocketed by one Belladonna Took on her journey home from a well accomplished adventure.

    Years, and multiple adventures later, Belladonna Took – by then Belladonna Baggins – settled into Bag End, and gave birth to a child named Bilbo Baggins, to whom this stone was always meant to belong.

    It is with this one small Hobbit that the ghostly Durin is to change the tides of Middle Earth, save his legacy, and rewrite this unwritten history before them.

    Additionally/And/Or: In which Durin the Deathless does not accept the finality of his lineage and submits his complaints to Mahal and Yavanna.

    Becoming glued to a rock and a Hobbit was not part of his request, but he was Too Vague and forgot to Read the Fine Print.

    Also, Hobbits are far too endearing even to Ancient Mostly Dead Monarchs.

    Finally, and most importantly, to any Dwarf asking, it isn't technically breaking any rules if the ghost beside you works as a translator for super secret Dwarvish languages.

    Summary

    Bilbo Baggins, blessed by Yavanna while still in his mother's womb, had a strong love for nature. With that love came the ability to make things grow, an ability that lent itself to many things: gardening, floristry, and unfortunately, adventuring.

    A re-telling of The Hobbit, but with a smidge more magic than is probably necessary.

    Summary

    Plan B: an alternative strategy; a contingency plan, devised for an outcome other than the expected plan.

    Or, sending an unqualified temp to act as Thorin Oakenshield's PA because no one qualified can put up with him.

    (He'd say they can't meet his standards. Of course he would.)

    Meet Bilbo Baggins. He just became Plan B.
