    Summary

    Fíli lived his life by an old dwarven proverb: when a fool drops a treasure, a wise man picks it up (it sounded better in the original khuzdul).

    Bella Baggins never quite fit in the Shire. Perhaps she was made for the mountains, instead.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    female!bilbo fics are generally not my cup of tea, i'm not sure why, but this one was marvellous! bella seems noth true to the original bilbo and different enough to make sense in this AU, and the universe alterations mostly make this fic a pleasant and comforting read.

    :") the writing style is p great, too, and i've found myself laughing out loud and sending non-spoilery quotes to fandom friends (the dwarf compromise especially jumps to mind). but there are also very sweet and tender moments that really made me root for bella and thorin.

    and i loved how bella's relationship progressed, with fili and kili and then the rest of the company - it just added the detail that really brought the whole fic to life. (and dis, i love her and the non misogynistic reason for why female dwarves aren't included in the genealogical tree, and how even so it affects them.)

    "And you?” Bella asked, braced for the worst. “What did you think?”

    Dis’s hands slowed, carding gently through Bella’s hair for a moment. “I think,” she said, in a softer voice, “That out of all the histories of my family on the walls of this Mountain, yours is the only one that bears my name.”

    T.T my heaaaaart, my souuuul, everything hurts but in a healing way (i actually teared up at this part, i'm woman enough to admit it)

    Summary

    When Tahani hears that her little sister is getting married, from what seems like every news site on the planet, she knows what's coming. She knows the media's focus on her will start to shift to why she isn't married yet, and her reputation can't afford another hit after Cincinnati.

    So she hatches a plan. Platonically marrying a man over twice your age is a good plan, right?

    (Funnily enough, it works out perfectly.)

    Summary

    Chidi has five days to teach Eleanor ethics before she flies back to Phoenix. No Michael. No Janet. No (apparent) looming threat of eternal damnation. Just Chidi, Eleanor, and a whole bunch of books by old, dead dudes.

    Pray for him.

    [Cheleanor. Multichap. Set after the end of season two, so, like... massive spoilers.]

    T.T oh no that was so lovely and it hit my soft spot for supernatural elements. this is maybe a softer-ish version of eleanor and tahani than in canon, but i like it and tbh this fic is going to my comfort fic pile
