    Summary

    The thing Gandalf neglected to mention when he assured Thorin Oakenshield and Company that Bilbo Baggins of Bag End would be the perfect thief for their mission was this:

    A Hobbit wouldn't be able to tell a diamond from a pearl, or from an Arkenstone - no matter how hard they try.

    This leads to some confusion, on Bilbos part. And some frustration, again on Bilbos part.

     

    (What sort of a description was 'heart of the mountain', anyway? A useless one, that's what.)

    Opal. It’s an opal.” He grits out, and Bilbo looks it over, considering.

    “Nope, pretty sure it’s the Arkenstone.” Bilbo says, nodding at the opal.

    “I’m quite sure it’s not.” Thorin says forcefully, and Bilbo, in an agreeable, polite tone that signifies to everyone he’s about three seconds from shouting at them, says,

    “Arkenstone. Ta. Da.” He wiggles the rock, and it catches the light nicely.

    “It’s quite pretty, I can see why you wanted it.”

    “Bilbo. I know what the Arkenstone looks like. That is not the heart of the mountain; it’s an opal.”

    “Well, do you think you could give it a bit of a better look? Maybe it is the heart of the mountain, only you’re too busy scowling at me so you can’t see that!”

    Summary

    Bilbo Baggins arrived home late one afternoon in the middle of the week and the entire west Farthing is still talking about it.

    Poor Mister Baggins. He was doomed to be a nine-days wonder no matter what and is it any wonder after a year-long adventure? Even the Tooks haven’t the influence to hush that up, but Mad Baggins seems to have managed to silence every tongue in the Shire on that subject which would be awe-inspiring ...if not for the way he decided to go about it.

    OR: That one where Middle Earth seems to be unclear about where baby Hobbits come from.

    Marvelous and Inventive

     

    Bilbo catches him by the chin and turns Thorin’s face to his. He is frowning and is sitting with one hand braced on his knee. “Thorin Oakenshield, did you get soused on mead and marry me underneath Beorn’s staircase?”

    Summary

    On the day after his thirty-third birthday Bilbo Baggins wakes up hung over, covered in glitter, and alone in a hotel room in the casino-riddled city of Bree. Seventeen years later a group of dwarrow insurgents break into his kitchen and kidnap him.

    It’s not readily apparent, but these two events are not entirely unrelated.

    Summary

    Take a dragon and get rid of it, take a Kingdom under the Mountain and let it thrive under Thráin’s rule, take the King’s eldest son - as proud and arrogant as you can picture him - and then send him to the Shire in order to refine his diplomatic skills. Or, as his sister puts it: to grow them at last. Now, throw in the Master of Bag End playing host for the dwarf prince: you’ll get a clash of cultures, an ill-advised bet about educating a certain hobbit in the dwarf-lore, and all the pride and prejudice business you could hope for, plus Khuzdul.

    A retelling inspired by My Fair Lady.

    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.

    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.

    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."

    “Bilbo.” Thorin says, barely over a whisper. “I am going to kiss you now, and I would prefer if I not get yelled at for it this time.”

    Oh help him he really might swoon. “I’ll yell at you if you don’t kiss me you utter-”
