So now I've finally finished the Hobbit WIP I started almost a year ago and it's high time to post it on LJ as well. Technically speaking it dates back to a story I wrote for Halloween '13, so it's been working in my brain for some time. It may not be overly long but I've never written such a multi-chapter fic before and it feels really strange to let it go. Also, I wouldn't have managed at all without the betaing and advice from [ profile] mrs_sweetpeach - you're invaluable!

So here it is:

Dust of Snow

... complete with a Russian translation that makes me very happy.

This is basically a "for want of a nail"-AU of the Hobbit (or at least the ending), told from Dwalin's POV and logically following the events of "Promises to Keep" and "To Yield with a Grace", although knowledge of those is not mandatory. Contains Dwalin/Thorin established relationship, though the various platonic relations are important as well.

My muse is feeling highly accomplished and currently backpacking in Scandinavia. *glares at [ profile] acd_holmesfest fic, once again stuck in the mud although it's not even long*

Speaking of Scandinavia, I'm afraid I have to blame [ profile] tweedisgood for getting me even vaguely interested in Vikings. I haven't followed it regularly - the level of violence is somewhat above my usual comfort zone - but enough to get invested in certain characters. Damn.

Sooo... here's the unusual pairing!genderbend!fic I wrote for the hobbit holiday exchange on tumblr. Turned out better than I hoped.

Fandom: The Hobbit

Title: The Heart that Looks on Gold

Rating and warnings: PG. Mental health issues.

Summary: The future always seemed predictable to Kíli during her carefree youth in the Blue Mountains, when Erebor was no more than a tale and a song, romance was not a matter to worry about, and there was no question that one day Uncle Thorin would be a great and wise king. But life turns out to be not quite as simple.

Pairings: Bofur/fem!Kíli, Fíli & Kíli (sibling relationship), Dwalin & Thorin (friendship, not telling what's happening behind the scenes :) )

A/N: Hobbit Holiday Exchange gift for broadbeam, who asked for anything involving Bofur/(preferably fem!)Kíli. The story evolved a bit further than that.
Betaed as usual by the wonderful [ profile] mrs_sweetpeach. Thank you so much!
Title taken from the second part of the "Misty Mountains" lament, which the dwarves sing when they have retaken Erebor: "The heart is bold that looks on gold." As we all know, it does not quite work that way.
