    Summary

    Bilbo Baggins had walked this earth a total of eight times in his past. He did remember them all, in some form or another, though he could rarely recall their names or faces, or very much detail about their lives at all. He always remembered their deaths, though. And he always remembered how it was someone – a well-meaning wizard, for instance – that had shown up and enticed or blackmailed him away from his home and family to go off and die for the good of the world.

    Much like what was happening now.

    Or: How the dragon soul of Bilbo Baggins made a deal with Manwë and can't seem to escape the consequences, and Thorin Oakenshield looks far too much like one of Bilbo's dead husbands.

    Summary

    “How the bloody hell does this keep happening to me?” Harry hissed to himself, holding his head as he slowly sat up, memories of the past twenty-four hours rushing back to him.
    “I’m inclined to agree,” a piercing, startlingly high-pitched voice answered from the darkness. 

    In which the proverbial rug is violently pulled out from under Harry’s feet upon Sirius’ death and he decides it's time to take his future into his own hands. With his infamous Potter gift to be unluckily lucky, Harry finds out that he’s heir to the House of Black – but soon discovers that there are consequences to his actions that he could never have anticipated in his wildest of dreams.

    A story about unravelling the dark secrets of the Noble and Most Ancient House of Black, hunting for horcruxes, and adjusting to a newfound inheritance – oh, and the grumpy house elf who holds it all together.
