The Last Homely House Welcomes Mr. Baggins for Shirebound by Dreamflower

Author:Dreamflower
Title:The Last Homely House Welcomes Mr. Baggins
Rating: G
Recipient: Shirebound
Request: How did the residents or Imladris react -- and adapt -- to Bilbo coming to live there permanently? (Possible ideas: Did anyone know that he was coming? How frail or vigorous was he when he arrived? Did anyone meet him at the border? Was he alone? Who set up his room? How did someone react who had never seen a hobbit before? What kind of luggage had Bilbo brought, and was it enough?)
Author's Notes: There are references and some quotations from previous stories of mine. It is not necessary to read those to understand this story, but I will place links at the end of the story for those interested. Also, I pay a little tribute to Lindelea, in the use of her name for Bilbo's pony, taken from her delightful story "The Tenth Walker". I will also link that at the end as well.
Summary: As Bilbo journeys to Erebor, the residents of Rivendell make plans for his return stay.

2016 Yule Exchange Stories


The Choice by keiliss (for heartofoshun). Deciding whether or not to sail has unexpected complications for Elladan.

A Dragon for Dora's Yule by blslarner (for dreamflower02). Illness and bad weather make it necessary for Fosco and Ruby Baggins to stay with Bungo and Belladonna for Yule this year.

Home for Midwinter by talullahred (for indy1776). Someone loves Maglor and eagerly awaits his return.

Journeys by indy1776 (for dawn_felagund). Trapped in a cave by a rainstorm, Maglor and Maedhros reminisce and discuss future plans.

Keep the Home Fires Burning by shirebound (for elwenlj). It’s time at last for Gloín to leave Rivendell and return home.

The Last Homely House Welcomes Mr. Baggins by dreamflower02 (for shirebound). As Bilbo journeys to Erebor, the residents of Rivendell make plans for his return stay.

Out of the Shadows of the Past, A King by lin4gondor (for blslarner). Boromir is faced with the unexpected revelation that Aragorn is heir to the line of Kings, and ponders what a returned King will mean to Gondor -- and to himself.

Salt by red_lasbelin (for keiliss). Erestor and Gil-galad take a mental health day at the beach.

The Ship of Light by dawn_felagund (for talullahred). Elwing is a troubled child, acting out to avoid facing the trauma of her past. During the survivors' first Yule at Sirion, mariners from Balar bring gifts to the refugees, and inspired by their benevolence, Elwing and Eärendil remake an old tradition into a new symbol of hope.

Something spicy by ysilme (for red_lasbelin). Lacking experience sometimes means making mistakes and can have unexpected consequences. Making new friends aren't the worst of those.

Winter Came Earlier by heartofoshun (for silver_trails). No context really; just a bit of fluff and a little heartbreak centering around a long-term relationship. I was asked for a story in which Elladan and Glorfindel loved one another. That’s what I wrote!

Winter Sons of Gondor by elwenlj (for lin4gondor). Boromir takes his younger brother on one last adventure before adulthood.

Something spicy, for red_lasbelin, by Ysilme

Author: Ysilme
Title: Something spicy
Rating: PG
Theme: 2016 Yule Exchange
Prompt: Gildor as a main character with any or all of these prompts: spice, miscommunication and gold.
Author's Notes: Many thanks to dawn_felagund for last-minute beta reading!
This was written as a pinch-hit and came out much different than intended; the characters clearly had their own mind about screen time. I had a lot of fun with the prompts and hope you enjoy these three as much as I did, red! Happy Holidays!
Summary: Lacking experience sometimes means making mistakes and can have unexpected consequences. Making new friends aren't the worst of those.
