    Summary

    Bilbo Baggins came home one sunny spring day exhausted, half starved and pregnant. His heart was broken, his name cursed by the dwarves he had saved and his house was on auction by the worst relative you could imagine. It was, understandably, a terrible day.
    Once it comes out that Bilbo is *expecting,* however, even the most prim and proper hobbits are scandalised at the poor treatment he received by the conspicuously absent father (and, by extension, all his kind). The Shire rallies around their poor, ill-treated and half-starved kinsman, and the climate of dwarvish relations takes a decidedly chilly turn.

    Summary

    As much as I used to love fairy tales, I never actually believed in them. Not until that fateful day, anyway. After all, as the old saying goes: you’ve got to see it to believe it. Only my sister, Lauren, and I… we didn’t just see it. We lived it.

    Summary

    By the governing law of the Shire, Bilbo Baggins found himself Thain and reluctant diplomat of the hobbits; which, perhaps he wouldn't have minded if the circumstance's were different. Although seeing as he should have been several times removed before he were to obtain such a title, a desolation had befallen Hobbiton and they found themselves without a home and many without their family.

    Yet, with no way to return to the rolling hills of the Shire, Bilbo Baggins found himself in quite the situation indeed; arranged by lords and royalty, to honour aged treaties and debts of old: his hand to be given off to a king he's never met, for the security and safety of his people, and never in all his years would he have thought his life to come to this.

    Summary

    "My dear Mr. Baggins," she replied, "how can you be so tiresome! You must know that I am thinking of one of these unmarried king or princes marrying at least one of our Bagginses, and why not my Bilbo? He’s the prime of the lot."

    Smaug is defeated without the recruitment of a burglar, and several delegations, including one from the Shire, are invited to Thorin's public, official coronation. Bilbo, scribe and bachelor, travels to Erebor with fourteen other Hobbits, embarking on an adventure that will change not only his destiny, but those of many in Middle-earth.

    Or, the attempted Hobbit / Pride and Prejudice mashup that nobody asked for. Not to worry, knowledge of the plot of Pride and Prejudice is not necessary to understand this story.

    Summary

    I have a soft spot for all kinds of love confessions - the sweet and tender ones, the hilarious ones, the ones that involve little nudges from friends, in short: all beautiful possibilities our favourite ship offers. And it seems that many that come to my mind won't leave until they're written down ... which is why I decided to put them together in a collection of one shots!

    Summary

    Bella Baggins knows better than to think Thorin actually just initiated an ancient hobbit courting ritual. He has no possible way to know what he's just done, and the middle of an important quest is not the time for her to be silly about it.

    Thorin knows better than to think Bella actually meant to initiate a dwarven courting ritual. She's a hobbit, not a dwarf, and it would be dishonorable to act as though things were otherwise. Especially when she'd so recently turned him down.

    (Bella and Thorin are both quite aware that the other has different customs, and they do their best to respect them while recognizing that their own peoples courting rituals are unknown to the other. This causes exactly as many problems as you might think.)

    Summary

    *In a world were the Dragon never came, Thror still went mad with greed and end up banishing his young Grandchild, Thorin when he defended the Elves in an argument.

    Alone and banish from Erebor, and after managing to strike a deal and maintain the peace between his people and the Elves, Thorin roam the world without family or kin, finding jobs in human villages but never staying too long. That is until he meet a small wee Hobbit lass and found himself immerse into the lives of Hobbits and a family in particular.

    Through the years, he had manage to stay away from people and from forming any kind of bond for fear of getting hurt, but now with the young lass constantly following his steps he find himself not minding it so much, that is until the attraction started to form between them. Now he had to fight those feelings or else he could get hurt again.

    But nothing can stand between the deep love of a Hobbit lass, not even the stubbornness of Dwarves, specially if that young woman is called Bluebell Baggins.*

    Summary

    “Lad, nothing he said would make me think less of you,” Bilbo told him. Frodo looked up then, his eyes wide and afraid. “My dear boy,” Bilbo rose and went to Frodo’s side, laying a hand on his shoulder. Frodo was back to staring at the floor.
    “I’m sorry Bilbo,” Frodo said in a tight voice, “I know you said no secrets between us…"
    “Oh, don’t be silly,” Bilbo said gruffly, “I never gave you a detailed list of every dalliance I took. You mustn’t listen to the likes of Seredic Brandybuck.”
    “He probably advised you to disown me,” Frodo said smiling faintly. Bilbo frowned and rubbed the boy’s shoulder.
    “I could never do that, Frodo,” he said gravely.

    When one of Frodo's older cousins comes for a visit, he lets slip that Frodo had a tryst with a lad back at Brandy Hall. Bilbo decides to do what he can to help Frodo feel free to court who he pleases, and tries to go about setting him up with someone. Turns out he may not have to look very far.

    Summary

    Drafting a contract is a gravely serious task in Dwarrow culture; a contract concerning courtship, betrothal, and marriage even more so. Bilbo, the formerly respectable Hobbit of Bag End, was no stranger to the business of contracts, although he seemed to have underestimated the vigor with which the scribes of Erebor took to their task. Despite Dwarven confusion, there are some things a Hobbit simply requires, even if that Hobbit will live in Erebor.

    Summary

    “I made a promise to your mother, before she passed.”
    "And?” Bilbo prompted.
    “I promised your mother I would find you a husband.”
    “W-what?” Bilbo spluttered, pushing his tea aside as he leapt from his armchair. “I - how could you - who would I even -”
    “Why, Thorin Oakenshield, of course,” Gandalf answered with a far too smug smile.
