    Summary

    In the Shire there were two truths. The Tooks were odd and the Baggins were respectable. The Baggins family dealt in contracts and favours, and while the Shire knew that the Tooks were odd, it was the Baggins family that had other blood running through their veins.
    Bilbo Baggins did not go running out his door for want of an adventure, he went running out his door because of a terribly worded contract and a laughable quest that somehow held the spark of other.
    In this story, it is not the Tooks that held fae blood in their family tree, it is the Baggins, and theirs is so much closer to the surface.

    Summary

    Bilbo raised his eyebrows. “And you’ve come to the Shire to look for this someone? My, Gandalf, I wonder if you know Hobbits at all. They would tell you that adventures are nasty, disturbing, uncomfortable things. That they would make you late for dinner.” Bilbo recalled his own words perfectly. It had been something he and Gandalf had looked back on with bittersweet laughter. 

    This Gandalf however noticed his exact words. “Would they now? And what about you, mhm? What would you tell me about adventures?”

    #

    The Valar send Bilbo back in time, to the day where Gandalf asks him to join in an adventure. After living a lifetime of regret and suffering, he vows to change things for the better. For Thorin. For Frodo. But will he succeed?

    Summary

    During the Second Age, Sauron created Witches; dark, powerful beings whose magic could do terrible things. Three of the four fell with Sauron, killed by the forces of Men and Elves, but one was lost - rumored to have hidden in the corners of the world, biding its time.

    Bilbo lives peacefully in Bag End. He's a reasonable cook, an excellent writer, and is Shire's best gardener.

    He also happens to the Last Witch of Morgul, but no one needs to know that.

    Summary

    Erebor's time has finally come, now that Thorin has gathered together enough loyal Dwarves to make it to the Lonely Mountain alive. Dwalin just wishes they weren't a cursed number.
    Oh, and that the irritatingly bull-headed Halfling Tharkûn found in the Shire would go home already. The Wilds are no place for a half-starved, girl-child gentleHobbit who can neither fight nor fend for herself.

    Belda's time to escape has finally come, now that she's managed to convince (read: emotionally blackmail) Gandalf into agreeing to let her come on the quest thingy he seems to be on, as well as convince the annoyingly bull-headed leader of the Dwarven pack to let her join them until Rivendell, at least. She only hopes she can earn their respect.
    Especially his second-in-command.
    Oh, and that they won't kill her when they find out the truth. She might not be their Burglar yet, but she regrets lying to them anyway.
    Other than Thorin. The stupidhead.

    Summary

    Bilbo Baggins has a secret. It’s a secret that all hobbits hold close to their chest, and would never speak of it in polite company. It’s a secret made present through the mandatory seven meals all hobbits must have.
    He’s hungry. So hungry, thanks to the small rations the Dwarves were serving out, that even that pale orc is looking particularly tasty. Well, it’s not like he hadn’t eaten one before but it’s just not respectable to do such a thing in front of company.
    But a small taste couldn’t hurt anyone, right?
