I love the daemon AU with Kili and Bard. It’s so wonderful and fantastic and all of you should read it!
more shameless family fic. this one takes place before the other one—uh, basically, through Dori’s childhood and baby!Ori. um. implications of maternal death and suicide.
Dori has a cat.
Or rather, the family has a cat.
Dori can remember how they got her—remembers his mother coming into his bedroom after he had already been sent to bed, waking him up and telling him to grab his shoes. She had let him wear his pajamas, and she had wrapped him up in a blanket in the backseat. It had been dark, and he had thought it was very late—now, as an adult, he thinks that it had probably only been nine or ten at the latest, but then it had seemed like a witching hour, a magical time when he was allowed to stay up late, to travel in his pajamas, to hold his mother’s hand.
HAHAHA. This is so beautiful and sad and reminds me of the unconditional love of animals and Ori and Nori and Dori. Oh god, Dori.
Goose, I hate you for making me feel this way but don’t ever stop.
I’ve been reading a couple great Loki/Tony fics lately and wanted to share them with all of you. Because I’m so generous like that. And even if you might not be into the pairing, it’d be a waste for you not to give these fics a try.
Tony Stark shouldn’t find Loki fascinating, but he does, because all he’s ever wanted to do is take things apart to see how they work. Besides, he’s never been any good at following the rules.
Admittedly, I haven’t gotten far through this fic, but I’m really enjoying when I’m reading so far. The characterization is really good and it amuses me how Tony and Loki can’t seem to keep away from each other IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. …Sorry. I’ll stop.
Tony doesn’t know anything about love. He’s convinced himself it’s for the best.
I read a couple of Stereobone’s other fics, and I near squealed with joy when I saw that she had written for Loki/Tony. Just go read it!
When the time comes to pass sentence on Loki after the events in The Avengers, Odin decides to go for the poetic justice angle. For his attempt to enslave humanity, Loki has his magic and powers bound, and is sent back to Midgard and given over to Tony Stark to be his slave.
This was not a turn of events Tony had ever seen coming.
I love this fic so muchhhhh. Maybe it’s because I’ve always been rather sympathetic when it comes to Loki (and don’t get me started on my feelings about him, otherwise we’ll be here all day), but I also wondered how Odin would punish Loki for his crimes and this is an interesting take on it.
But the reason why I really love this fic as much as I do because of how emotional it makes me. It’s every time Loki remembers what it was like in the Asgardian prison, how he feels so helpless without his powers, and how he comes up with all these scenarios about what his life as a slave might entail. And then there’s Tony, who is completely at a loss of what he’s supposed to do with a suddenly powerless god as a slave and doesn’t realize that Loki is a timebomb of emotions just waiting to go off. OH GOD MY FEELS.
A “Dis and her boys” fic, written for the following kink meme prompt:
“Dís, Fíli & Kíli - swimming lessons. Doesn’t matter if the lads are kids, adolescents or adults - I just want their mum teaching them how to swim.”
Takes place before ‘we hide our brave face.’ WARNING: thoughts of infanticide.
When she is pregnant with her second child, she is cow-heavy. The baby rides low in her belly, much lower than Fili had, and by the seventh month, it feels as though she is carrying the weight of a mountain in the sling of her hips.
“A big belly means a strong baby,” the other women say. “And girls,” they say, “always ride low. Girls are cradled in the hips.”
This was amazing and incredibly sad. It’s easy to forget sometimes, because Middle Earth is such a fantastical place, but the evidence that women who live there are a lot like those who lived during medieval times is distressing. I honestly can’t blame Dis for feeling the way she does, because her life is so unfair.
And I may have cried when Kili is born and Dis is disappointed he isn’t a girl. That she compares her sons and finds Kili so flawed, that she wonders if she could ever love him the way she loves Fili. That hurt the worst.
But I enjoyed the little moments of Andvari and Dis taking the boys to the river to swim. It felt like my heart might burst when Dis realizes how much she love her sons, even (or especially?) Kili, who isn’t what she wanted but what she got in the end.
Now excuse me while I go find a corner and cry.
Fill for the kink meme: “Dwalin notices more and more that he is going bald, and so does everyone else.
Wanting to make Mister Dwalin feel better Kili takes to drawing on a throughly passed out Dwalin when he comes to stay over after a night of heavy drinking with Uncle Thorin.”
I know it sounds kind of cracky (because it really is) but it’s very well written crack and the characters are so true to themselves and BOTH FILI AND KILI ARE SO ADORABLE I WANT TO CUDDLE THEM.
ieatcellphones said: welp now i really want a spin-off where kili and dwalin travel to erebor as a married couple
When the knock comes at the door, Bilbo is a little startled. It’s already grown dark out, far too late for any proper hobbit to go visiting. He is very seriously considering hunkering down in the kitchen, where no one can see him—it’s probably Lobelia, come to complain about this or that or the other.
Then whoever it is knocks at the door again, even louder—and yes, it must be Lobelia, using that dreadful umbrella of hers—and Bilbo shoots up out of his seat, hurrying to front door. He’s just had his door painted a most beautiful (and expensive!) shade of green, and if Lobelia scratches it—
He opens the door, prepared to give Lobelia quite the tongue lashing, and sees—dwarves. Two dwarves, much taller than him, standing on his doorstep. The one in front is massive, bald-headed and tattooed, and he looks Bilbo up and down, then bows.
“Dwalin,” the dwarf says, “at your service.”
“And Kili,” the second dwarf says, bowing as well. This second dwarf is not quite as terrifying looking—instead, he is smiling broadly at Bilbo. “At your service.”
“Bilbo Baggins,” Bilbo fumbles out as he grabs his dressing gown, tying it tightly around his waist. “At, er, yours.”
I actually started crying when Kili sees Fili again, so thanks for that.
Still not quite sure how I feel about Dwalin and Kili’s relationship, but it breaks my heart that Kili ended up in a relationship that’s so similar to his mother’s. That he’s not sad, but he’s not happy either.
And the fact that Kili is so separated from his family hurts so much. It’s a given when people are married, of course, but the implications that things ended badly when they last saw each other is just-… When Thorin smiles at Kili, I almost had to stuff my fist in my mouth to muffle my sobbing.
Because a Friday night isn’t complete without some heart-wrenching feels, am I right?
Well, that’s exactly how I feel while reading these two fics by gooseberry.
A fill for a Hobbit Kink Meme prompt: “Dwalin is supposed to be Thorin’s closest friend in the film-verse, so he promised his younger nephew to Dwalin which is a huge honour etc, royal line blah blah.
It’s up to you as to how Dwalin feels about it, (he gets a hot younger husband or Kili is a notorious handful?) but Kili is super excited and fangirling over Dwalin all over the place.”
Kili has been engaged to Dwalin since he was a child, as a measure of protection and family solidarity. Now that the dwarves are retaking Erebor, Kili’s social and political clout is growing, which means that his engagement will most likely be reevaluated and changed to better benefit Erebor. Pretty much everything falls apart.
It’s all sexual politics, Durin Family Feels, dubious consent, and the question of what sex is and what constitutes virginity.
Oh, and lots of touching.
This fic is so wonderfully written and I hate it all the more for making me feel the way I do. Kili just doesn’t realize that he’s being used like a pawn in some political game, and that breaks my heart. Because Kili probably really loves Dwalin (I say “probably”, since Kili has been promised to him ever since he can remember and hasn’t had feelings for anyone else before) and just wants to be accepted by him. And that makes this fic all the more heartbreaking. Not just because Kili is treated like something that can be bought and paid for (which is also horrible), but because he’s an individual who should get a say of who he loves and what should be done with his own body, but doesn’t. He doesn’t and he’s so lost and confused and OH GOD MY HEART I CANNOT HANDLE THESE FEELS.
Written for the Hobbit Kink prompt that was, essentially, “Kili using the family resemblance to save Thorin.”
The Company is struggling to reach safety, and the only plan that Kili can come up with is taking Thorin’s coat and shield and leading the wargs on a (not-so-merry) chase.
Hahaha. It’s all I can do not to lay my head down and weep after reading this. Basically Kili is a bamf and will lay his life down on the line to keep his comrades and family safe. Just beware the warnings and keep some tissues handy.
Bilbo Baggins, the newly appointed Master of Bag End, has just reached his majority. He lives alone in his fine house, managing his estate, and ignoring the people of Hobbiton as much as they avoid him. When a storm lands him with an unexpected (and unwelcome) little visitor, all Bilbo wants to do is find the baby Dwarf’s missing family so he can get back to his own life.
That’s not what happens.
This fic just takes my heart and stabs its repeatedly with feels. Bilbo finds a young Kili during a storm, lost and scared. He takes him in and finds out that a group of dwarves were passing through the area before being attacked. He waits for someone to show up looking for the child, but no one does and Bilbo finds himself caring for Kili as his own son.
It’s still incomplete (the second chapter was only just uploaded today) but it’s a great read and I highly recommend it because it’s just so sweet and adorable but bitterly sad.
For stardustgifts, because I have no shame in my love with Fili and Kili and their grumpy uncle.
Bilbo Baggins is a humble grocer, living a simple, quiet life. He likes his solitude and his predictable routine.
The police say the Sons of Durin are a crime family. The government has labeled them a group of environmental terrorists. Thorin Oakenshield will tell you that they are simply desperate for a home.
But when Bilbo is dragged into the midst of the group as their unwilling burglar, his life will take a turn for the terrifying, and everything he has taken for granted will be torn asunder.
Such a great fic. It’s a modern AU of The Hobbit, but it’s true to the characters and to the story (which is really hard to find, I’m sad to say). Definitely worth a read, because it’s brilliant. (It also has some side stories called Children of the Lonely Mountain.)
written for a prompt on hobbit_kink: Thorin a single parent/uncle, Bilbo babysits. Fili and Kili are a handful. Essentially NANNY AU where Thorin is a perturbed Detective Inspector navigating through life.
After a terrible incident, Thorin finds himself gaining custody of his recently orphaned nephews. Fili and Kili are ridiculously adorable in this story (no, really, it should be illegal), and it’s obvious that Thorin is fond of them, but he’s completely clueless on how to take care of them. He can’t even take care of himself, if we’re being completely honest.
And then Bilbo comes along.
For as long as even the old Gaffer could remember there had been a wizard living in the hill at Bag End, overlooking the Shire. As wizards went, this one wasn’t the wandering sort, always out to lure gentle folk out onto nasty adventures, or even the powerful kind, the sort that lived in high towers, reaching out into the ways of the world.
Basically, Bilbo is a wizard. A hobbit wizard, who would very much like to stay in his home and not get dragged on the quest to reclaim Erebor thank you very much.
Go on. Read it. It’s manic_intent, after all. That’s all the reason you need.
A troup of nomadic dwarves moves into the Shire, and the differences between the two races causes unintended trouble amongst the hobbits. The idealistic mayor Bilbo Baggins works to bring peace between the two populations, and to learn more about their troubles from their imposing leader, Thorin Oakenshield. (An AU set before the start of the quest)
It’s still a pretty new fic, but I’m enjoying it so far. I especially love the part where the dwarves open a toy stall in the marketplace and Fili and Kili are mesmerizing the little hobbit children with their trinkets and toys. You should definitely give this story a try.
You should give them all a try, really. Because they’re great. But don’t take my word for it. Go, go, go.
