Summary:When Thorin is injured in the Battle of the Five Armies, Bilbo surprises everyone with his healing abilities. Then as Erebor starts to rebuild he continues to surprise people with his knowledge and skills. On top of everything else that is occuring there is a dwarf king and a hobbit who might be trying to court one another without the other knowing – while their companions are either helpful or confusingly gleeful.
Direct Spoilers for the end of the book though this is an alternate ending.
Why You Should Read This: Alternate universe where all the main characters survive the big fight. Then the rebuilding of Erebor & Dale starts. Both Bilbo & Thorin start to court each other in the ways of their people, WITHOUT talking to each other about it. So its an Oblivious!Thorin & Oblivious!Bilbo until ….well, that would be telling. The author didn’t put the actual adult scenes as part of the fic, but placed them as a separate posting. These are linked into the main story at the points where they belong so you can choose to read the adult scenes or not.
