Finding Middle-Earth: 5Chapter 5: Define “Normalcy”Finding Middle-Earth: 5 by LeDbrite
Leaving his house early the next morning, Kili fell back into his regular schedule without difficulty. In the minus twelve hours that he had been home, he’d only accomplished a few things: texting Tauriel back, sleeping, and leaving for work. Arriving at the lakeside, he entered the country club, unfazed by the posh interior, and disappeared into the employee’s rooms.
Once a natural lake, it had received an expansion when a summer camp had taken over it and they had been in need of a larger swim zone. To top it off, a well-to-do neighborhood had been built on its north side, and had made an agreement with the camp to establish the club. Run by the same management, the differences between the club and camp were little. Providing everything, through the camp or the club, a person could experience anything from boating to horseback riding. Rumor had it that they had even gone to the extrem

Chapter III: Dwarves in Bag-End
Dwalin was confused. He generally only had the door slammed in his face when he tried to kill someone. This was an odd development. Maybe the woman lived alone and was unused to strange men coming to her house? Unsure of what else to do, Dwalin sat on the Hobbit’s doorstep/ramp and texted the wizard.
Shortly afterwards, Dwalin’s brother, Balin, arrived with an insufferable grin on his face. “Evening, nadad.”
“By my beard, you are shorter and wider than last we met,” Dwalin said as he stood up.
“Wider, not shorter. Sharp enough for both of us,” Balin said.
The two laughed and butted heads.
“Now, Dwalin, why are you out here? Don’t you know how to ring a doorbell?”
“There’s the problem. The lass won’t let me in,” Dwalin said.
“Well, you are rather terrifying until everyone knows you’re a pansy,” Balin said, “Maybe she’ll le

Chapter II: The Map
Professor Bramble Baggins was not fond of surprises. Having two in one day never boded well. First there was the rather handsome dwarf she had never seen in the Shire before. There was also Gandalf’s (always unexpected) visit. She found it doubtful they were unconnected. Bramble might not have realized who the dwarf in her classroom was if not for the fact she was speaking about his people using his words. She was surprised she did not burst into flames from embarrassment. It was one thing to talk about people when they were not there, but quite another when they were sitting in the back of one’s classroom looking majestic.
Thorin seemed to take it in stride as he carried some of her books. Bramble wondered amongst her many thoughts of why royalty would come all the way out to the middle-of-nowhere Indiana and if he would be offended if she asked him to sign her book with his report in it. She realized it might be a painful subject and the

An Unexpected Road Trip: The World is Not in Your Books and Maps
Summary: Professor Bramble Baggins is happy teaching folklore and linguistics at Hobbiton University and has no need of adventures, thank you. When Gandalf arrives on her doorstep with a pack of Dwarves and a deal she can’t refuse, she rushes into one of the strangest road trips across America from her little university town of Hobbiton in Indiana, to the Last Homely House of the Cumberland Gap, and to the Misty Mountains of the Carolinas. Modern AU, Fem!Bilbo, and Bagginshield.
Chapter I: A Lecture on Dragons
Thorin Oakenshield did not entirely trust Gandalf, but he had researched Professor Baggins extensively enough that he felt somewhat comfortable asking her for help. She was working on her doctorate in Folklore with a thesis on Dwarf folktales and their connections with folktales of other cultures. The Hobbit had been working on her thesis for two years already since there was so little available
