    Summary

    “I hope you don’t mind, it's simply elven way to be proud of your marriage” then he continued as if he hadn’t just dropped a bomb shell “however I endeavor to respect your cultural and personal preferences as best as possible”

    The moment between them sizzled, Gimli felt himself as a kettle, quickly reaching his boiling point.

    Then, as Legolas leaned forward to collect himself, and the tea, Gimli exploded “You’re married!?”

    Legolas flinched slightly in reaction blinking down at him with large elf eyes, a small questioning smile worked its way onto his lips “what are you-” he stopped short, and as the realization dawned on him, he gave the tiniest “oh”

    Summary

    Inspired by the Laketown chapter from the 2003 Hobbit game.

    In an attempt to smooth things over with Bard, Thorin charges Bilbo with apologizing on his behalf. Only, Bard is less in need of an apology and more in need of a burglar...

    Bilbo finds himself caught up in a dark web of crime and conspiracy in an attempt to unearth a deadly plot in the heart of Laketown. He may have bitten off more than even a hobbit burglar can chew.

    Though it would be so much easier if he didn't have a truly awful head cold. Or an angry dwarf King on his case.

    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

    Jaskier is throwing up flowers and refuses to tell Geralt who has afflicted him so. As Geralt grapples with Jaskier's impending death, he comes to terms with a few things himself.

    //

    “Who’s the unlucky woman?” Geralt asks, stepping into the firelight. 

    Jaskier starts, dandelions spilling from his hands. He hastily brushes them away. “Gods, Geralt, must you always sneak up on me? This is why you have an image problem, you know. Don’t get me wrong, the whole tall, dark, and murderous vibe is fantastic -- really brings out the color of your eyes -- but the skulking tips you firmly into the realm of, well, somewhat unhinged.” 

    Geralt only glares at Jaskier, waiting for him to tire himself out, and sets about roasting the fowl.

    “Anyway, killing my beloved won’t cure me,” Jaskier continues blithely, “so don’t even think about it. Not all problems can be solved by whacking away at them with those oversized butter knives you carry around.” He settles cross-legged next to the fire with his lute balanced across his knees and strums a few chords.

    Summary

    A repository for all of the fics that are part of the "Prayers to Broken Stone" universe, aka "that fic where Thorin turns into a dragon." The first story, "Prayers to Broken Stone" is the main canon of the universe, other fics include or will include:

    "Lips that would kiss" - four times Thorin and Bilbo had sex in a parallel timeline of the story, and one time that also fits into the original canon. Covers alternates to chapters 9, 12, 16, 17, and the epilogue, the last of which can fit into either timeline.

    "In the twilight kingdom" - various spin-offs, one-shots, and "what ifs?" for "Prayers to Broken Stone", mostly made up of alternate timelines and endings.

    "Falls the Shadow" - tentative title for a much shorter sequel, covering Bilbo's struggles with the One Ring.
