When the company is turned away by the hobbit living in Bag End, they are shocked to find a hobbit child who wants to come with them. Despite Gandalf’s misgivings about taking an orphaned Bilbo Baggins on the road, the dwarrows fail to see the problem. After all, plenty of dwarf children grew up on the road, and it’s better than leaving him homeless. Along the way Bilbo worms his way into the hearts of everyone, but particularly into ‘Uncle’ Thorin’s.

Bilbo had to leave before the unwanted love he nurtured would crush his heart with the weight of the entire Mountain. Even if Thorin did return his affections, according to Dwarven law, Bilbo would never become anything more than a bedwarmer, stealing moments of closeness under the cover of night and sneaking out of the King’s chambers in the wee hours of the morning, forever hiding his true feelings under the façade of a friendship worth of legend.
He couldn’t do that to Thorin, and he couldn’t do that to himself.
However, heavy is the head under a heavy crown, they say. And maybe, Thorin would be the one who'd need just a little push this time.

For a Hobbit Kink Meme Prompt:
Lets say that the term 'halfling' is an extreme insult to Hobbits.
and during the Journey, Bilbo doesn't realise that the Dwarves don't know what the term actually means and doesn't understand why they are being so vulgar towards him.
Lets also say that Gandalf was riding too far ahead or something and doesn't realise what's going on until dinner one night when he hears one of the dwarves (Bofur/Ori? Plz?) jokingly call Bilbo 'Halfling' and is furious.
Gandalf:"BOFUR! Do NOT use that word in my presence again!"

Every Hobbit in the Shire has a Season. The children of Summer are known for their fires, the Springs for their skills at gardening and healing, and the Autumns for the winds that they can bend to their will.
Bilbo Baggins has a different Season, a cursed Season.
Bilbo Baggins is a child of Winter, blamed by many for the suffering of the Fell Winter of his infancy. Shunned and forced to restrain his powers with an amulet, Bilbo suddenly finds his skills needed to assist a horde of suicidal Dwarves on their Quest to kill a dragon.
Fire cannot kill a dragon, but perhaps Ice can... if it can be controlled.
