AU of movieverse. It is many years since tragedy struck the line of Durin when the youngest heir was lost to a pack of orcs. Now Bilbo Baggins, having agreed only to stealing treasure from a dragon, finds himself instead tangled up in a web of tragedy and revenge. Perhaps it's foolhardy of him to get involved at all, but really, someone has to try and keep these dwarves out of trouble. As for the rest, well, what is lost does not always stay lost forever.Why rec'd it?
rec'd it a few days ago. I'm not into The Hobbit that much and I don't go looking for fic for The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings because it's not easy to find anything that is how I like it for various reasons. But, I decided to give it a try because tari_roo
liked it and I trust her in these things.
And, it's been a good decision. It's great. It has a slow build and keeps it the whole fic. I love that. Healing is not a fast thing (in this case) and the fic showcases this.
I also love the language barrier and how some things (grammar and concepts like "happy") are very difficult to explain when you try to teach it to someone whose language has no words for it or they have no idea what it means.
Also, it hits my buttons with the found family thing a bit and how people won't give up on you no matter what.
