unknownAuthor Website: inkling on AO3Why this must be read:They've escaped Thranduil's dungeons, but all is not yet well in the House of Durin. There are darker legends in Middle Earth that have truth to them.
One of the most intense and wonderful fics in the fandom, starts with whumped Kili, which is not unusual, but the nature of his injuries emerges slowly, and the responsibility of another member of the party comes to light.
Also contains slightly hysterical Laketowners, the disastrous tailer experience, Bifur's understanding of helpless agony, and in the end, the devestaing ceremony of unmaking and reforging.“The blade was damaged. But like any true making, it can still be shaped into something useful and beautiful—more beautiful and useful, perhaps, than it first was.”Knapped Flint

Why this must be read:
"Dwalin and Thorin are travelling together, and they find themselves in a ridiculous situation where Thorin has to disguise himself as a woman at a tavern. The effect is more interesting than they both expect - Thorin is openly leered at and propositioned and he fumes about it, while Dwalin enjoys himself playing the big, bad protector of his lady's innocence. But of course, the tension gets too much."
It starts in Dwalin's point of view, the middle part is Thorin's, and the last part is Dwalin -- and that really makes the story work, ratcheting the tension and making the emotional connection as important as the sexual connection.Lady In Red

Complete and utter angstcakes and yet compulsively readable. A long Middle-earth AU in which Fili and Kili were separated as children and neither knew he had a brother; they fall in love when they meet as adults. When Thorin finds out, he feels that he must separate them. There is epic yearning.( Love, he realizes, )
Contains consensual sibling incest, violence, and rape/non-con elementsParallel

John Hamish Watson/Sherlock Naenwauva, Bilbo Baggins/Thorin OakenshieldLength:

Because, well, the actor who plays Bilbo and John Watson is the same, but in this story they are NOT the same character. And sure, in The Hobbit
the actor that plays Sherlock also voices Smaug the Dragon... but in this story, Sherlock is an elf. INTERSPECIES LOVE!
The writing in this story is extremely evocative of Middle-Earth, with nicely researched lore bits and gorgeous, Tolkien-esque turns of phrase, while the characterization (particularly of the dwarves) is excellent. Bilbo Baggins learns that he isn't the first Hobbit of the Shire to go on an adventure and as he reads the story of one John Watson, he finds parallels in his own story. But he also wonders why the elves are so hesitant to speak of the story of John Watson and Sherlock Naenwauva. The story is a gradual unfolding of the mystery while following the plot of The Hobbit
. GOOD STUFF, highly recommended! (PS: Read all of sunryder's stories, they're all exceptional).Come to Morning
