    Summary

    Bilbo Baggins considers himself a bit of a cock up, all things considered. He never made it out of his small highway adjacent town, can't seem to stop chain-smoking, and overall has more to talk about with the plants in his shop than 90% of all the rest of Middle Earth.

    So when he's reading the morning paper and a love note that can't be for anyone but him pops up, he's pretty sure - almost positive, really - that he's being made fun of.

    "TO the chain-smoking little stud who collects two metros from Gamgee's Goods every morning, will you be my love hobbit? - Bearded Biker."

    Summary

    The first thing Thorin sees when he wakes up is his own hand resting on the bedsheets. Atop it rests another, smaller hand. It feels warm and looks soft, the skin unworried by forge burns and blemishes. It is not a dwarf’s hand; he knows as much. Yet he cannot quite gather for himself if that is of any importance.

     

    Or, Thorin loses his memory and quite forgets that the hobbit by his bedside whom he wishes to court and marry is already his husband. Everyone else find this hilarious.

    Summary

    "I don't know why I let you convince me to do this!" Bilbo wailed at Dwalin as the dwarrowdam above him stabbed his skin over and over again, carefully dripping the needle on the ink in between a few stabbings.

    “Cause ye love Thorin, maybe? Also, I’ll have ye know my ideas are the best. Wasn’t it for it you would be still freeting about gifts and whatnots. Yer just a little wimpy...” Dwalin mumbled the last part as he grimaced, trying to counteract Bilbo’s accusations but he wasn’t fooled, as from where he was lying, the fool of a dwarf was more than a little sweaty trying to pry his white hand from Bilbo’s bruising grip.

     

    Or, Bilbo gets a tattoo for Thorin on the advice of Dwalin, despite his better judgment and extreme dislike of tattoos.

    Summary

    Today's world, where Legolas is a rich pretty boy searching for distraction and Gimli, a union man's son, provides it with little trouble. Where Thorin is head of the union and in love with a quiet man not interested in his fight, where Thranduil means well, but succeeds rarely, with a son missing his mother, and where children must find their own way of doing things.

    Summary

    Some are born to rule and some are born to serve, and there is no shame in that; for who is above he who serves the King but the King himself?
