28th-Sep-2013 02:03 am Knapped Flint, by inkling (Teen+)
Pairing: Kili/Other (torture and rape)
Length: 48,087 words
Author on LJ: unknown
Author Website: inkling on AO3
Why 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.”

Someday, they might actually be forced to come to terms with the fact that they don't hate each other. "

Follows the movie canon (as far as we know it) during and after the quest to retake Erebor

21st-Sep-2013 10:55 pm Lady In Red, by windchijmes (Explicit)
Pairing: Dwalin/Thorin
Length: 9,401 words
Author on LJ: [ profile] wind_chijmes
Author Website: and windchijmes on AO3
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.

20th-Sep-2013 08:36 pm Parallel by dothraki_shieldmaiden (Explicit)
Pairing: Fíli/Kíli
Length: 116,775
Author on LJ: unknown
Author Website:dothraki_shieldmaiden on AO3
Why this must be read: 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 elements

Why this must be read:

While resting at Beorn's Hall, the Dwarves decide to teach Bilbo some basic swordplay. Things don't go quite as they expect. I love twists and this one is played through beautifully.

Uncle, permission...? )

16th-Sep-2013 08:24 pm Sherlock/The Hobbit (Teen)
Title: Come to Morning by sunryder
Pairing: John Hamish Watson/Sherlock Naenwauva, Bilbo Baggins/Thorin Oakenshield
Length: 95,891 words
Author on LJ: [ profile] sunryder
Author Website: on AO3
Why this must be read:
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).
