In an effort to seek out Ilúvatar himself to beg for a cure for the dark affliction endangering his uncle, Frodo travels far beyond the reaches of Valinor and finds that he isn’t the only one on a reckless journey to save Bilbo’s life.

    Summary

    "Thorin was the essence of so many Buckland oddities, distilled into one misfortunate young hobbit, much to his infinite embarrassment.

    Built like a stork, his father had said once, in an example of Thrain Brandybuck’s usual tactless humour. All beak and legs."

    Thorin Brandybuck, just recently come of age, still lives in his family’s smial in Buckland, with his parents and two younger siblings. Thorin is an odd duck amongst his relations and neighbours-- unsociable, grumpy, shy, and awkward. And beyond that, he looks rather strange even for a Bucklander, strongly favouring the thick, dark haired build of his Stoorish blood.

    It defies all sense and reason why Bilbo Baggins, an exemplar of all the respectable traits Thorin lacked, would ever desire a friendship with him.

    Bilbo, as Thorin discovers, is not always as sensible as he appears.

    Summary

    'Death gets its fill, in the end. Thorin, son of Thrain, son of Thror, King Under the Mountain dies that day, somewhere between the barren battlefield and the half-lit rooms of his lost kingdom. Thorin Oakenshield survives, barely, and finds himself to be a ruin, much like Erebor – a once mighty thing ravaged by dragon's lust.'

    Thorin survives the Battle. That's the easy part. Now he has to learn to live with himself. Thorin finds he cannot do this as King Under the Mountain, not after everything that's passed. So, in order to learn how to live, Thorin decides to die. Or at least, to kill the King. By Thorin's command, he becomes dead to Erebor and the world, save a few chosen ones, and sets out on yet another journey.

    But here is the thing - by his own command, Thorin is dead to Erebor, the world, and to Bilbo Baggins. Until one day he learns something that causes him to change his decision and travel to the Shire. Ominous news brings Thorin knocking at Bilbo's door, and that's a beginning of a whole new journey.

    Because, in the end, not all who wander are lost, and some who are lost, must first wander so that they can be found.

    Summary

    Bilbo liked Erebor, he really did. Even if everyone seemed convinced he was going to leave.

    In which soil causes international incidents, Thorin is over-dramatic, and dwarves are rubbish at keeping secrets. Oh, and they build a garden. Eventually.
