Summary: Bilbo Baggins was not a particularly talented Guide. He knew that. His family knew that. Every last Hobbit in the four Farthings and Bree knew that. But that meant nothing when one morning an agony that wasn’t Bilbo’s ripped right through him, dropping him to his knees with a scream. Wrapped up in the pain there was a presence. Someone fierce and determined, nestling himself in the blank space in Bilbo’s mind for the barest of moments before he slipped away. It was like fingertips brushing across the outside fringe of his soul, and Bilbo wanted it back. Wanted him back. And so help him, Bilbo was going to find him. His Sentinel.
Why You Should Read This: This is a take on what the world of Middle Earth would be if there were Sentinels and Guides there. This AU/twist in the Hobbit movies/books that I found interesting. The differences in bonding in the Hobbit fashion and the Dwarf fashion. If you like bonding/marriage fics this is a good one to read. Slight spoiler for those who might not already know, but no main character dies in this version of the Battle of the Five Armies.
I’ve actually read this one a couple times now – it is pretty darn fabulous.
I just downloaded this the other day. Now i’m even more excited to read it. Thanks.
