    Summary

    I would have your comment on the seating arrangements, Glóin wrote above a drawing of Erebor’s reception hall where he’d crowded dozens of long tables with dwarves and set a small table labelled Thranduil three back from the head table, a deliberate taunt.

    Summary

    The AU in which Bilbo once again stands between his king and death - and is not so lucky this time.

    The AU in which Thorin is weighed by grief and chooses a life of relative solitude rather than that of a king.

    The AU in which it takes a lifetime for him to forgive himself.

    Beautifully tragic and pained

    Dl

    He is not so old that death should have claimed him long ago; his hair has not yet become completely silver. Yet he can feel it in his marrow, the exhaustion that had never truly faded when he had returned; a tiredness of the world and its struggles. He is content, here, and there is not much more for him, so he shows the young ones how to tend to the garden, and he cleans out the bird baths when he can, and he reads to the statue under the tree as his final journey draws near.

    Summary

    For as long as even the old Gaffer could remember there had been a wizard living in the hill at Bag End, overlooking the Shire. As wizards went, this one wasn't the wandering sort, always out to lure gentle folk out onto nasty adventures, or even the powerful kind, the sort that lived in high towers, reaching out into the ways of the world.

    Summary

    Thorin Oakenshield agrees to an alliance of dwarves, men and elves against the enemy approaching Erebor. But he makes some demands and one of them is for Bilbo Baggins to be tried for the theft of the Arkenstone, accordingly to the dwarvish law. Bilbo is taken into Erebor as prisoner and Thorin is going to learn that many things can still be stolen.

    Summary

    There are few things Thorin feels about as deeply as he does about flowers - his nephews’ education, the conservation of Derbyshire dales, Sunday’s lunch with Dís and the boys. Until one day a stranger with flowers tattooed all over his arms shows up at the shop and Thorin would rather like to indulge in the meaning of every single blossom inked on the stranger’s skin.
    But the stranger may not be a stranger after all and though he has flowers on his wrists, he may not wear his heart on his sleeve.

    Bilbo Baggins is at a turning point. Call it mid-life crisis, call it responsibility, call it teaching Geography to kids in the bloody middle of Derbyshire. Of one thing Bilbo is certain: disgruntled-yet-rather-endearing florists are not what he needs in his life right now. Definitely.

    A gift for Radiorcrist, based on hers and tosquinha's Needles and Roses AU concept and art.

    Everyone knows they were doing it all along, right?

    My first-born or a kidney, as preferred, to HSavinien and Maybetwice, two excellent betas who deserve better than such an anxious, needy writer. Thank you guys, so much. :3

    Summary

    In the years since Bilbo left Erebor, he has lost his respectability, gained a nephew, and gotten on with life at Bag End.

    He'd left aside adventure for the comforts and peace of his little Hobbit hole, and for the love of a child who needed him. Though perhaps, adventures can yet find him.

    Summary

    "Bilbo never bothers denying that he is a slight, little bit, probably infatuated with Thorin. It’s not something that bothers him. Really. He’s pretty sure that everyone very likely has a little flutter in their chest for the dwarf. He’s something grand and unattainable.

    And it’s really much safer if it stays that way."

    Summary

    When tragedy strikes the Line of Durin, Thorin decides to separate his infant nephews in order to keep them safe. Sixty-five years later Fili is the bored, dutiful heir in Ered Luin while elsewhere Kili is simply trying to stay alive between alleyway brawls.

    Everything changes when they meet and a connection is formed which seems nigh unbreakable.

    At least until the truth of the past and their heritage is revealed.

    Summary

    I took a prompt on the kink meme and ran with it further than requested. Prompt was:

    At some point on the journey, things get a little ugly and battle is done. Bilbo, who still isn't terrific with a sword, is told to hang back or stay somewhere safe. (Or maybe he's guarding the ponies, whatevs.)

    Just before going with them, Bofur takes his hat off. And puts it on Bilbo's head. Because these are the two things he wants to keep safe.

    So, here are the many times Bofur gave Bilbo his hat to keep him safe and happy, and the one time Bilbo took it to make Bofur feel safe and happy.

    Summary

    The problem, Bilbo would later tell Gandalf in aggrieved irritation, was not so much the unannounced visitors, oh no, but the fact that due to the lateness of the hour and sheer merciless fate, it came to be that at the respectable age of forty, Bilbo was being introduced to a real, live king while wearing striped pyjamas and fluffy slippers.

    Magical and utterly romantic.

    “Why dandelions?” Frodo has finally been coaxed into bed after an evening of films and an unconscionable amount of chocolate, and the shadow lies with his head in Bilbo’s lap, tracing invisible lines in the air with the tips of his fingers.
    “I like them,” he answers and Bilbo snorts. He fiddles with a single lock of the shadow’s hair, twisting it into a loose plait. He learned to braid as a child when Primula taught him to tie honeysuckle clover into chains that they would knot around their wrists until they wilted and fell to pieces. He bites back a sigh— the cold weather makes him feel old and maudlin, even with the shadow warm at his side.
    “Yes, but why do you like them? All the flowers in the world and you went for dandelions.”
    “They’re bright,” he says. “Like light but they never bothered me. I thought maybe,” he stops his tracing, hands falling still in his lap. “I thought they could replace sunshine, at least in our room.”

    Summary

    The next time he visits his parents there are flowers left in the grass, pressed back against the gravestone. They are yellow and white daffodils, plain and wilting.

    “Who’s been to see you?” He asks, taking a single photo of the flowers with their drooping stems and curled petals and the wet winter grass that surrounds them. His mother would call it kind, his father might say it's curious, and Bilbo takes another petal to tuck into his pocket.
