    Summary

    Bilba Baggins couldn't be happier. She's embraced her Baggins' half and has placated her Took half with a short trip to Bree (the most adventure she ever wishes to have). In addition, she is convinced Fram Harfoot, the most eligible bachelor in all of Hobbiton, will soon declare his eternal love for her - particularly after he sees the dinner she's prepared for him. When the knock sounds on her door she just knows it heralds the first day of the rest of her life as a respectable, and entirely proper, Hobbit.

    Instead of her Happily Ever After, however, Bilba gets a company of Dwarves - complete with their obnoxious leader who MIGHT be vaguely attractive if he ever stopped ruining it by opening his mouth.

    Clearly the only possible explanation is somewhere, in a past life, she must have done something truly AWFUL to deserve this.

    Summary

    “Are you all right?” Rose asks, suddenly caught wrong-footed. People don’t look like that when they’ve had a stranger run into them. They look like that when they’ve run into someone they never expected to see, ever again.

    Time traveller. It happens disturbingly often.

    The woman adopts a quick smile, but it’s too sharp to be genuine. “Oh, what, me? Right as rain, me. I’m fine.” False or not, the smile makes her whole face light up, and the Yorkshire accent is a pleasant surprise.

    “Oh, good,” Rose says. “‘Cause I totally wasn’t looking an’ ‘s all my fault, really. Head in the clouds, you know.”

    or, thirteen makes an ill-advised trip into her past

    Summary

    'Before you,' he said, 'you can see more women than warriors. Cowardly, unarmed, they will give up the moment they see the weapons and bravery of their conquerors who have given them such a drubbing so many times before.' (Tacitus, Annals XIV.36)

    The first time Clarke sees the Head Girl she’s sitting on a throne, presiding over her dominion with a piercing stare and a crown of braids in her hair. Her warriors are spread at her feet, a multitude of them, all long-haired and wild and clad in identical brown regalia. There’s something of the sacred about her, like the crimson cloak draped across her shoulders and her divinity are one and the same.

    Or at least it feels that way.

    British girls' boarding school AU. Obviously.
