    Summary

    Yara is a Syrian refugee, and life doesn't get much shittier than that, does it? Unless you're a Syrian refugee who suddenly finds herself in a place where no one understands what she's saying, there is no wi-fi, and how did she even get there? Through all the gloom the stars are twinkling, just like the eyes of the people around her.

    A good fic if you like elves, language barriers, and OC's who break the mould. Not as depressing as the tags seem. Actually quite uplifting. Not a mary-sue, and not a tenth-walker, but the fellowship will come into play. Bear with me :)

    EDIT: So, I've noticed this is definitely going to end up being, well, long. It's turning out to be a story just as much about finding your place in the world as it is about finding adventure in Middle-Earth. I hope you enjoy it, anyway, and if you don't, feel free to leave constructive criticism :)

    I hope the language setup works for you. Please critique my Quenya and Sindarin. I have no clue about Swedish or Arabic, sooo... not even attempting those.

    If you at any point decide to stop reading this story, I would be very thankful if you could leave a comment telling me what made you lose interest. I want to improve!

    Summary

    In danger and injured Vanessa slips between worlds and against his better judgement a reluctant Thorin allows her to join the Company:

     

    "I’ve heard tales, they surface every now and again, of travellers. Folk who fall between worlds, in times of great need.”

    "I don’t believe I need a ‘Traveller’ to reclaim my kingdom.”

    “I didn’t say that the need was yours, Thorin Oakenshield.”

     

    Lots of fluff, lots of angst and the occasional bit of smut.

    Summary

    Millicent Thomas knew her life was over the moment she saw the German bomber plane overhead. All she ever wanted to do was help people and it seemed to be God’s wish that she die doing her job. Which is why, upon opening her eyes, Millicent was surprised to find herself surrounded by tall, long-haired and angry warriors with sharp arrows aimed at her.

    Had she died after all or had the Germans won the war and taken her prisoner? Why did they have pointy ears and sound vaguely welsh? And what the hell kind of a name was Thranduil anyway?
    (Eventual ThranduilxOC)

Intrigued by the marks she carries, Thorin and Company decide to bring her with them as they embark on their adventure to reclaim their homeland. It doesn't take Y/N long to realize that this is no dream and that the dangers are very much real, but luckily there are those who have already took it upon themselves to look after her. But somewhere along the way, that duty of protection grows into something deeper. When Y/N's memories finally return and her purpose becomes clear, will her love for the Dwarves she's grown fond of be enough to alter the course of fate or will she need to put her own duty first?

    Summary

    Darcy Bragg has lost her boyfriend and her job, and now she’s lost her car. Even worse, the beat-up Ford contained her son’s beloved "Lord of the Rings" annotated trilogy. So Darcy takes 10-year-old London to the nearest library to replace the book. But the library is strange and the librarian mysterious. “Our patrons don’t read the books, they LIVE them,” the librarian says as he wrings water out of his shirt. “Just don’t pick Jacques Cousteau.”

    And so Darcy and London find themselves on the Road to Bree with three protein bars and the haziest of instructions. Darcy's ex-boyfriend bursts into the library minutes later, looking for her, and bullies the librarian into following Darcy and London. Those two end up in Minas Tirith, and although the librarian has never read the books, he's convinced that Boromir is the hero.

    Darcy and London, meanwhile, are soon separated, each trying to travel to the trilogy’s end. London is living his greatest fantasy, while Darcy just bumbles her way south, impersonating a Nazgul and wrecking the plot by rescuing Boromir. The ex-boyfriend's efforts to locate them just make everything worse. Is a happy ending for Middle-Earth even possible anymore?

    Summary

    "You need to know something," said Fili, taking Sara's face in his large warm hands. "Whether or not you ever find your family, you have me. Even if the Valar take you away tomorrow Sara, I will always be your brother. I want you. Mahal, I'm going to fight Thorin for you, but even if I lose, you are always my sister. I would sooner stop being a dwarf than stop being your brother."

    Can going caving land you in a hobbit pantry? That's what happened to Sara Miller. Taken from the 21st century, she must navigate through middle-earth to find a way back home, but to do so she will have to understand why the Valar have sent her; something even Gandalf does not know. Enter 12 dwarves and a surly dwarf king who is determined to take back his home in Erebor, even if, to get Gandalf's help, he must allow this girl and a hobbit to come with him. The gray wizard could have no way of knowing just how right he was when he said there was more to Sara then meets the eye, more even it would seem than she knew. Sara is familiar with Middle Earth but has never read The Hobbit, so has no idea what is in store for her and this group of dwarves as they embark on their quest.

    Yes that is the real title.

What if she sets off some butterfly effect that causes Sauron to win?
