Tolkien quote of the day:

For Elves and Men are the Children of Ilúvatar; and since they understood not fully that theme by which the Children entered into the Music, none of the Ainur dared to add anything to their fashion. For which reason the Valar are to these kindreds rather their elders and their chieftains than their masters; and if ever in their dealings with Elves and Men the Ainur have endeavoured to force them when they would not be guided, seldom has this turned to good, howsoever good the intent.

bullet If You Wish Upon a Dwobbit by Soledad Last Updated: 9/24/2018
As mentioned in “The Book of Mazarbul”, Bifur and Óin had always been close. So, why did they never court? Possibly because Bifur’s interest was elsewhere? Don’t let the title mislead you. This is a non-slash, one hundred per cent canon, bookverse story. Well, 99 per cent canon anyway, seeing that Bifur is a bit different here. *g* Features Thorin's entire company - and more.

Sauron has reappeared at Dol Guldur and it is resolved that Gandalf must drive him out. Though the Tale of Years provides little detail, the recent discovery of the Testament of Aranarth now reveals the full tale of Sauron's expulsion.

bullet The Old Took's Faunts by Kaylee Arafinwiel Last Updated: 9/2/2018

The twelve children of Thain Gerontius and Lady Adamanta Took were the largest family noted in Hobbit records until that of Sam and Rosie Gamgee - and like any family, they had their ups and downs.
