    Summary

    Having to travel all the way to Ered Luin was the last thing Bilbo wanted, he had no say in the matter, though. The safety of his people was at stake, and if he wanted them to survive winter, he had to make sure to get a good deal with the dwarves.

    He just hoped his complicated feelings for the King wouldn't get in the way...

    Summary

    What could you do if you were born with memories of the life you had yet to live?

    Belladonna’s child had never been what could be considered a normal faunt by Shire standards. A Took could never be considered normal even if a Baggins was respectable. However, Bilbo did not play pranks like the Took children or garden like the Baggins children. He was a quiet and introspective boy who seemed to know what would happen before it even occurred. And that was not respectable at all.

    After the Fell Winter took Bungo Baggins from them, Bilbo told Belladonna he wanted to buy a caravan and trade with the dwarves of the Blue Mountains. She could not think of a better way to escape the fearful judgment and gossip of the Shire. Newly scarred from their trauma, they set out the Blue Mountains to meet the dwarves Bilbo already knew.

    Her faunt would accomplish big things, she just knew it.

    What she did know was how large a feat he would actually accomplish...

    Summary

    "Dear Primula,
    I wish I could tell you how lonely I am here. How cold and harsh it is here without a sprig of green to its credit. I think that hope and goodness have forsaken this place. I believe I've seen hell, and it's grey as mountain stone."

    In which Belladonna Baggins has decided to move to Erebor, and Bilbo is joining to take care of his elderly parents. There he meets Thorin Oakenshield, King Under the Mountain, who seems to be the cruelest of all the Dwarf Lords.

    Summary

    It starts off as your average romantic fairy-story: A Dwarrow prince and his lover are cursed by a pretender to the throne, forced to spend a decade wandering the wilds in search of a way to break the spell. But just as Smaug gets ready to consolidate his power within Erebor, a possible cure presents itself, and Dwalin and Thorin are in a rush to get home. However, getting into the mountain unnoticed is far from easy.

    Neither is getting out of it, for that matter.

    Bilbo Baggins, a Hobbit thief from the Shire, is the only being in living memory to have escaped Erebor's dungeons alive. While he wants nothing more than to be able to make his way home, his plans are fouled when he accidentally crosses paths with a mysterious battle-scarred warrior and his peculiar blue-eyed raven. To make matters worse, he's being plagued by strange dreams involving a terrifying black wolf and the beautiful Dwarf who cares for it.

    Things soon get complicated, and Bilbo, Thorin, and Dwalin soon find that things are never as simple as they seem, and that home as a concept is thoroughly what you make of it.
