    Summary

    There's a certain point where you can no longer ask someone what their name is. Thorin isn't sure exactly when that point is, but he knows that it's probably some time before the person in question saves your life. On the far side of the Misty Mountains, Thorin realizes that he never quite caught the first part of Mr. Baggins' name, and he finds that it's astonishingly harder to learn than he would have thought. Fili, Kili, and Dwalin are no help whatsoever.

    Summary

    In which everyone sees the budding romance between Thorin and Bilbo, except, of course, for Thorin and Bilbo themselves.

    Also, Dis brings the fear of God in other Dwarves and likes to meddle in her big brother's romantic life, and if she has to do this through scathingly written letters, then so be it.

    Summary

    Bilbo Baggins had been unemployed for an hour and fifty six minutes. It was the first time that he had been unemployed since he had graduated, and if he was being entirely honest, he probably wasn’t taking it very well.

    In which Bilbo attempts to leave everything troublesome in his life behind, only to find out that the worst of it always follows you anyway. Quite literally, if Thorin and Bofur are anything to go by.

    Summary

    As far as he could tell, he had been kidnapped, which in itself made this week more than a little unusual.

    In which Bilbo steals away the Lord of Death, and Thorin can't quite bring himself to stay angry about it.

    Summary

    He's not scared, but rather resigned. He doesn't want to die, not when he knows that it will be permanent, but he doesn't regret his actions. He's died many times on this journey; first for his Company, and then for people he could proudly call friends, who then turned into family.

    And now Bilbo will die for them again.

    For the first time in his life, he will also die for love.

    Summary

    The Dwarves are returning to Erebor reclaimed, and the elves uphold their promise to safeguard the caravans as they pass through Mirkwood.

    One particular Dwarf has wit and spark enough to match Legolas Greenleaf - perhaps even outmatch him.

    It's hate at first sight.

    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.

    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.
