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.
Oh, oh, one of my favorite stories written last year. It was bittersweet but joyous. This is the Thorin I look for now it all other stories. And it had an ending that made me thrilled to have read it. Thanks for the rec. I’m going to reread this this weekend.
