    Summary

    “Every moment is the paradox of now or never.”
    ― Simon Van Booy, Love Begins in Winter: Five Stories

    Thorin did not consider himself to be reckless. Too much had rested on his shoulders for too long for him to make imprudent or impetuous decisions. The quest for Erebor, for all its insurmountable odds, had been meticulously planned, though those plans had come to naught disturbingly quickly at the machinations of the wizard. Yet in this moment he felt a mad impulse to throw caution to the four winds. When else would he find such an opportunity as this? They were alone for the first time in months. Soon enough someone would come looking for him—they could be on their way now—and this moment would be lost.

    Summary

    Bilbo Baggins, wealthy Shire bachelor and eccentric, carefully fit himself into the Shire’s expectations. And then the Quest changed everything.

    Thorin Oakenshield lives, Bilbo lingers, and going home to his old life gets complicated. With dashes of Ring, monsters, old lovers, letter-writing, Erebor redecorating, Shire lawsuits, a closet or two, and returning nemeses.

    “Thorin Oakenshield,” said Bilbo with a raised eyebrow. “We are middle-aged people. Men of the world. You are a mighty King and I am a reasonably apt Burglar. Unwise taunters of the dragon, re-takers of the Mountain. Are you daring me to jump, as if we are children on the edge of a water hole?”

    Summary

    Bilbo had enough. Of everything. In general. He wants to smoke his pipe in peace and chase fauntlings off his lawn, thank you very much.
    He did not sign up for a surprise visit of an old family friend, an even more surprising visit of a band of dwarves, and an entirely unnecessary adventure.

    He also did not expect Thorin Oakenshield to be so bloody handsome.
