Summary: Thorin dies. Thorin wakes up. He is understandably confused by this, especially since he appears to be in the Erebor he knew as a young dwarf, about to be attacked by a dragon.

A time-travel fic with Thorin as the one living his life twice.

Why You Should Read This: It’s beautiful. In fact, I fell in love with the character of Thorin during the course of this story and it changed a great many things about how I think about the fandom and influenced my own characterization of him in ways I probably haven’t even realized yet. If you only read one Hobbit fanfic your whole life–this is the one you should read.
