    Summary

    Matilda's daemon is an owl. Different types of owl, from day to day, but always an owl. "I know who I am," she'd said to Jenny when she'd asked.

    Jenny's daemon is... complicated.

    Summary

    To imagine the friendship of a lowly river gnome and a fae champion would be the height of foolishness. Rue doesn't particularly care. It's a quiet thing they have, her winter knight and her. A silent companionship.

    Summary

    A tiny bit of a reverse Beauty & the Beast. The beautiful scholar prince of a conquered country is given in marriage to the monstrous warrior queen of their conquerors, in an effort to keep his family and his kingdom safe. It's possible that his new wife didn't expect him to be quite as pragmatic about it as he is, though. To be fair, his family didn't either.

    Summary

    The overworked project manager on the redesign of the Imperial Lambda-class shuttle gets surprisingly competent feedback from an unknown official on Coruscant. She promptly decides that anyone bored enough to do a technical review of their own free will should be found proper employment for their own good.

    Her correspondent has been missing the opportunity to tinker with machinery. It gives him something to do between hunting down rebels.

    Summary

    A child psychologist is asked to sit in on the questioning of her client, a nine-year old boy, traumatised by finding his father stabbed to death. The child's mother is being held for the murder and the case against her looks water-tight, unless her son can be persuaded to tell what he knows. But the only way to communicate with the traumatised child is through his great obsession, chess, and only one detective speaks chess fluently enough to understand what he has to say.

    Summary

    The curse of Thror took everything from Thorin; his home, his people's love, and finally his family and his sword arm. Then an old wizard in a pub brings him a key and the first good news he has heard in a long time - his nephews are alive and well in the Shire, the most unlikeliest of places.

    Bilba Baggins had been quite happy living quietly on her own, but Bag End has not been quiet ever since two orphaned dwarves snuck into her life and made themselves at home. However, she will be damned if she lets a one-armed dwarf prince storm in and take them away after all these years.

    She'll follow her boys to the ends of Middle Earth if she has to. And maybe, if he proves himself, she might even stand beside their king.

    Summary

    Thorin doesn’t move his arm at first when Bilbo tries to wiggle out from under it.

    “I have to make water!” Bilbo protests in a voice thin and squeaky with sleep and Thorin lets him up with a put upon sigh.

    “If you fall in, I won’t be the one to fetch you.” The dwarf grumbles and hunkers back down to sleep, but still watches Bilbo stumble towards the door.

    It’s chilly outside, which feels good against Bilbo’s sleep-flushed skin. His clothes fit strangely, but then again he’s probably lost weight between all the exertions of his adventure followed by an illness. The sun is warming the sky, turning the clouds a pretty mix of pink and amber and it looks to be a good day until Bilbo closes the outhouse door and reaches into his trousers… only to find that something has gone missing.

    Or: that one Bilbo accidentally turns into a girl and it's all the dwarves' fault.

    Summary

    There are no words adequate to describe the Last Homely House or the wonders of Lord Elrond’s hospitality, which seems impossible to strain even under the burden of thirteen empty dwarfish stomachs and their even more trying attitudes.

    Having played hostess to those same stomachs in her time, Briar is duly impressed and endeavors to add to the burden as little as possible. This is made somewhat more difficult by the fact that elves, apparently, are better able to differentiate between hobbit gentlemen and hobbit ladies that dwarves seem to be. A fact Briar learned when Lord Elrond pulled her to one side after their meal and put her into the hands of his daughter and her women with a gentle smile.

    Briar feels that she probably owes him a swift kick in the shins for that.

    Summary

    Thorin does not like the idea of taking a gentle soul from the gentle hills that spawned him only to face certain death. He has too much weighing on him already and his people at least are of hardy Dwarfish stock.

    All Dwarves are born to be craftsmen and warriors, to wield both hammer and axe in service of their homes. They may be tinkers, toy makers, and untested youths now but that will change. The seeds of something greater lurks in each of them and is only waiting for the right chance to grow.

    It doesn’t occur to him until many months and miles will have gone by that the same could be said of their Halfling.

    Summary

    Fíli lived his life by an old dwarven proverb: when a fool drops a treasure, a wise man picks it up (it sounded better in the original khuzdul).

    Bella Baggins never quite fit in the Shire. Perhaps she was made for the mountains, instead.

    Summary

    It's a dangerous business, stepping out your door.

    Bilbo never quite got around to telling Frodo that the road holds more subtle dangers than dragons.

    Particularly if you carry a certain ring.

    Summary

    Apparently, one of his nephews has fallen in love with an elf.

    After everything that's happened, Thorin feels he owes it to him to be helpful about this.

    As soon as he can figure out how.
