lazulisong: do u expect me, a gay, to remember everything i write (The Scum Villain's Self-Saving System, Shang Qinghua/Mobei-jun, Shang Qinghua & Shen Qingqiu)
"What?" says Shang Qinghua. "No, he's not. Why would he court me? He thinks I'm like, a hamster."

"Okay, then why is he dropping like, monsters and shit at your door?" says Cucumber-bro. "That's how they like, show people they can provide for them or whatever."

"Why would they do that!" shrieks Shang Qinghua. "I never --"

"It was a plot point, dude," says Cucumber-bro, in the slow, patient voice of someone speaking to a stupid dog. "It was an actual, literal plot point you typed in with your own like, sinful hands."

"No it wasn't," says Shang Qinghua immediately. "I think I would like, fucking remember writing a scene where some chick gets an actual fucking dragon corpse dropped on her door and immediately gives it up for the person who brought it!"

If it Must End So - lindoreda
After hearing the last words of a fatally wounded Thorin Oakenshield, Belladonna Baggins flees Erebor before he's cold in his grave. Before he's even in his grave, really. Which, as it turns out, is a mistake, for he is neither dead nor dying, and does not appreciate having to go all the way back to the Shire to get her back. [48,869 words]

Forge of Origins - Nyruserra - The Hobbit - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
The deep places of the earth. Vaulted cathedrals filled with Mahal's voice. And the perfect cradle from which to reform two souls; forged anew in synchronous heat and passion...

Only, things aren't going exactly how Thorin Oakenshield, Reformed King Under The Mountain, dreamed. Bilbo is confoundingly...confused. The bond that is tearing apart his very being is in danger of being snuffed out before it's even had much of a chance to begin, and there is far too much political chicanery than is good for his fraying nerves and temper.

And orcs. Definitely too many orcs.

If he is very lucky, he may just manage to woo Bilbo, and possibly save his sanity in the process...


A prompt fill for a Dwarven Courtship story; with lots of feels, a touch of fluff and a mine-cart full of Dwarven culture thrown in for good measure.

And Nori. Because he'd find a way to steal centre stage, regardless.

An Unexpected Proposal - airebellah - The Hobbit (Jackson Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
“I made a promise to your mother, before she passed.”
"And?” Bilbo prompted.
“I promised your mother I would find you a husband.”
“W-what?” Bilbo spluttered, pushing his tea aside as he leapt from his armchair. “I - how could you - who would I even -”
“Why, Thorin Oakenshield, of course,” Gandalf answered with a far too smug smile.

For Bakugou Katsuki, storms bring change and never the good kind. Those howling winds and driving droplets of rain spell the end of an era for him, every single, time.

Until this storm.

This storm brings Deku.

Evandar - Spines and Antlers
1. Post-Hobbit. There's an Elf who keeps buying his toys. Bofur's not sure how he can like him, except he does.

2. His first impulse is to give in to the fluttering in his belly and the skipping of his heart, and embrace the gift for what it is. To return it, even, though with what he does not know.
After receiving Bofur's gift, Elros finds himself debating what to do.

The Courting Dilemmas of a Spark and a Werewolf Prince - green-leaf (greenleaf) - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Talia smiled calmly. “I am well aware that you are not a werewolf, my darling, but I thought this would be the best reading material for you to use as reference. After all, how would you know how to act during a courting ritual if you do not study it?”

“But I don’t... I’m not…” Stiles narrowed his eyes at her. “Are you setting me up with someone?”

Talia rolled her eyes at him. “Don’t be obtuse, my darling. Why would I set you up with someone –”

“Oh, well, that’s good, because–”

“–when I have a son who is already perfectly enamored with you?”

when the sun came up, I was looking at you - suzukiblu
“Rey!” Finn calls, and Rey turns away from Leia to be confronted with a beaming Finn and Poe and an entire sack of space apples.

She blinks, and they hold the sack out to her.

“They’re your favorite, right?” Finn asks, his handsome face looking all hopeful.

“Yes,” Rey says, turning bright red. [2,209 words]

A Winter's Tale - paranoid_fridge - The Hobbit - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
Bilbo stays in Erebor after the battle. He's in love with Thorin, that much he can admit to himself. What Thorin feels, he doesn't know, but he's happy they get to spend time together. And maybe, just maybe, his affections are returned.

Or: Thorin slyly courts Bilbo after dwarven custom, Bilbo pines for Thorin, and at one point they end up ice sailing on the lake. It - like the hair brushing session - is less romantic than both parties initially expected, but enjoyable nonetheless.

A Passion For Mushrooms - Chrononautical - The Hobbit - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
There are many trials for a hobbit attempting to make a life among dwarves. A hobbit wants a garden. A hobbit wants to eat regular meals. A hobbit wants friends, good books, and comfortable chairs. Bilbo does his best to carve out a little hobbit life for himself in the mountain. If only there were not one final obstacle. For a hobbit heart wants love, and among dwarves that is a sticky subject.

Literacy by thehoyden
Deep Space Nine, Bashir/Garak. "'You want me to read to you?' Julian repeated, somewhat taken aback." Julian's offer to entertain Garak while he's recovering from the surgery turns into Julian's learning Cardassian while reading it aloud. // 5.6K. Very fun. The best kind of sneaky vs. naive fic.
