    Summary

    After the battle Bilbo returns to the Shire. Letters are exchanged, life goes on, and despite pining for each other, Thorin and Bilbo settle in their respective places.

    Until one year Bilbo wakes on his birthday to find snow covering the ground and a second Fell Winter dawning upon the Shire.

    A missive from the Blue Mountains reveals the predicament of the Shire to Erebor. And Thorin decides that despite the distance Erebor will help. He leads an army toward the Shire, while Bilbo struggles to protect his fellow hobbits, himself, and his young cousin Frodo from encroaching wolves and orcs so they may all survive this winter.

    Enters one Bilbo Baggins - is it redemption or damnation?

    Summary

    Some things are fated, but at times, fate can be changed and a world on the verge of destruction can once more be filled with life and joy. Will Bilbo be able to break the spell the gold has placed upon the leader of the Company, or has Thorin already passed the point of no return? Have their death warrants been signed, or is there still a chance to make things right?

    Summary

    ‘We may have won the battle, but I fear the war with winter is just beginning.’

    The aftermath of war is no laughing matter. Those who died must be honoured, those who are wounded must be healed, and those who remain need food and clothing, peace and sanctuary. With Thorin's life hanging in the balance, it is up to Bilbo and the rest of the Company to rule the rag-tag remnants of Erebor in his place.

    Then there is the matter of the gold...

    Can Bilbo save both king and kingdom, or is Erebor destined to fall deeper into ruin?

    Summary

    'Alone this Yuletide? Irritated with prying and nosey family members?

    I am an out of work blacksmith currently trying to make my way by any means necessary that does not involve my resorting to thievery (prisons are most uncomfortable, I've unfortunate first hand experience). However, if you would like me to be your strictly platonic companion for any social function, but have me pretend that we are in a serious courtship, so as to torment your family and ward off unwanted suitors then I am more than obliging...'

    After becoming increasingly irritated by overtures of romance from various Shire residents following the death of his mother four years ago, Bilbo is more than ready to resort to desperate measures. That is, up to and including pretending to be in a serious relationship with a certain surly blacksmith currently inhabiting the Bindbale Woods.

    It's a good idea after all; all they have to do is pretend to be in love over the Yuletide period and Bilbo's family and suitors will surely leave him alone after that. It's perfect! And nothing can possibly go wrong, right? Certainly nothing as preposterous as falling for one another for real...
