    Summary

    Written for seniorpotato on tumblr, who asked for a sort-of-Frozen!AU
    Every Hobbit in the Shire has a Season. The children of Summer are known for their fires, the Springs for their skills at gardening and healing, and the Autumns for the winds that they can bend to their will.
    Bilbo Baggins has a different Season, a cursed Season.
    Bilbo Baggins is a child of Winter, blamed by many for the suffering of the Fell Winter of his infancy. Shunned and forced to restrain his powers with an amulet, Bilbo suddenly finds his skills needed to assist a horde of suicidal Dwarves on their Quest to kill a dragon.
    Fire cannot kill a dragon, but perhaps Ice can... if it can be controlled.

    Summary

    Hobbits, Bilbo finds, have an exceedingly simple way of finding their soulmates: You fall in love with who you will, and once you both feel the same, you'll get your marks. Dwarves, in typical dwarven fashion, do everything backwards, getting their marks first and then trying to find the matching one. Really, he's quite content to be courted by Thorin, who has no mark at all.

    Kíli has no mark, either, until they come to Mirkwood, and things get needlessly complicated. Because of course elves do things yet another way, as though Bilbo didn't have enough of a headache already.

    Of course, there's also the ultimate question: how to tell about your pregnancy to a partner who is not only gold-mad, but also doesn't believe in the existence of illegitimate children?

    Summary

    Cody discovers that the warm feeling of peace-affection-home he gets when he touches his General's lightsaber goes both ways. When he picks it up, he isn't the only one whose heart gets just a little lighter. Finally, he's found a way to make his General relax. There's only one thing to do next: take advantage of that for as long as he possibly can.

    Or: Five times Cody used his General's saber to help, relax, or comfort him, and one time he used it to help, relax, and comfort them both.

    Summary

    Obi-Wan Kenobi arrives on Bandomeer as a Temple washout.

    When Ben leaves Bandomeer, it's after an unexpected rescue from an unruly group of pirates. The Jedi have made it clear they don't want him, and his time as a slave in the mines has taught him the galaxy isn't safe. He learns from Hondo how to make a living as a pirate. When the Clone Wars breaks out, it's the perfect opportunity to make big profits so long as one keeps their head down and stays neutral.

    But once Ben meets Commander Cody, neutrality isn't an option.
