Summary: When his family tried to marry him off, Bilbo thought to go on a little adventure, and finds himself in Dale. What he didn’t expect was to be single one moment and then halfway to married off the next, and to a Dwarf he’s never even met, no less!

Why You Should Read This: I found this to be a very promising first chapter of a series.  The way that the characters are well written. The chapter itself is complete, but the series is just starting.  Slight spoiler alert: In this universe Smaug didn’t attack, Thrain is now King.  There are a few times that people are completely gob-smacked that are priceless.  The mpreg doesn’t happen here, but it is talked about so I added it as a warning just in case.
