    Summary

    “It wasn’t the living room rug,” Steve says to Natasha the next morning. He’s got the three-breakfast-meats platter and he’s barely touched it, and if that isn’t evidence of a deeply distressed super soldier, Natasha doesn’t know what is. “And it wasn’t the cookies, the little sugar stars were actually kind of amazing. It wasn’t that he changed the towels in the bathroom or the sheets on my bed or even my damn toothbrush. But if you’d seen him sitting there in nothing but a pair of Captain America boxer shorts, you’d already be helping me apply to Russia for political asylum.”

    “Not true,” Natasha says calmly, dipping her knife into the jam jar. “He was also wearing Captain America socks.”

    Or: Just in time for Christmas, Bucky discovers the power of Captain America merchandising.

    Summary

    Steve shook his head in disbelief. “So just because I knocked your coat on the floor and handed it back to you, now we both have to be legally married to a stranger forever?”

    “Well,” Bucky said, eyeing the ring box on the coffee table, “we don’t have to be strangers.”

    Bucky's a selkie. Steve's a clumsy human. They're married now. Oops.

    Summary

    It was only on the last page of the letter that Bilbo realised why his cousin might have pressed her Dwarf messenger so, for on the last page Amaranth wrote, with a shaking hand, of the death of her sister Primula, and Primula’s husband Drogo Baggins.

    Summary

    Hiraeth, pronounced [hɨraɪ̯θ], is a Welsh word that has no direct English translation. The University of Wales, Lampeter attempts to define it as homesickness tinged with grief or sadness over the lost or departed. It is a mix of longing, yearning, nostalgia, wistfulness, or an earnest desire for the Wales of the past.

    “Uncle Thorin.” Kili’s voice broke through the grim reminiscing of the dwarves as they glanced up. In the opened doorway, the prince had a rather peculiar look upon his face, body tense and feet shifting his weight as though anxious.

    “What is it, Kili?” Thorin grumbled, hoping against hope he had no more demands to listen to that day.

    "Uncle . . . there are hobbits at the gates."
