    Summary

    Long have the Centaurs of the line of Durin ruled the land of Narnia. They are wise and strong, and none are better at reading prophecies in the dance of the stars in the night sky.

    When King Thorin reads a portent of a time of great hardship for Narnia, he goes in search of old power, of things long hidden. The Arkenstone, fabled ice jewel of the North. After all, no price is too high to pay for the safety of his people.

    Meanwhile Bilbo Baggins, fresh back from the trenches of WW1, is not exactly sure how he ended up in Narnia when all he was doing was hiding in the closet from a thunderstorm. Thankfully, he runs into a friendly faun named Bofur right away, and his flute playing is soothing and he seems to know what to do.

    He has no idea he's about to be thrust back into another war.

    Summary

    Upon the death of his cousins, Bilbo Baggins left his life in London behind to care for his orphaned nephew, Frodo, in Boston. After more than five years, Bilbo has accepted his quiet life of cooking and writing. When Frodo's professor appears at his door one day in need of a chaperone for the senior class trip to Erebor, Bilbo discovers that he might have one more adventure in him. Meanwhile, Thorin Oakenshield has devoted every day of the last twenty years to his family's kingdom; fifteen of them were spent in exile and the last five have been spent toiling to repair S.M.A.U.G.'s damage. Despairing of his heirs and hounded by his friends to look to his own happiness, Thorin believes that Erebor is the only comfort he needs.

    Summary

    On the train ride to Hogwarts, Bilbo Baggins starts chatting with this quiet older dwarf who says little but is absolutely charming. Unfortunately for him, he later finds out this dwarf is not anyone but his new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, and Bilbo might just lose his mind trying not to do something...indecorous.

    Where Hogwarts is in Middle Earth and the results of having dwarfs, humans, elves, and hobbits on the same roof is still pretty disastrous.
