Summary: Thorin Oakenshield has arrived at Bag End, but finds Gandalf’s nomination for the last member of his Company to be sorely lacking. Will the wizard and the king of the dwarves come to an agreement over the hobbit, or will burglar Baggins be out of a job?
[Based around Gandalf and Thorin’s early discussions, as revealed in the “The Quest of Erebor”, this story is a synthesis of information provided in The Hobbit, the Unfinished Tales, and the history of Durin’s Folk from Appendix A of The Lord of the Rings. It is also influenced, rather heavily, by images from Peter Jackson’s upcoming film.]

Summary:
Thorin and Gloin, for some strange reason, have been my personal headcanon for a while. I have only a few drabbles written out, but many, many ideas, which could turn into a pretty damn long fic. This isn’t related to anything, just a little idea I came up with one night. Gloin and Thorin on the eve of departure from Bag End.

Summary:
The year is TA 2839 (before the departure of Lord Thrain), Blue Mountains (Ered Luin). Gloin is aged 56, Thorin 93. Before their relationship started, and before Gloin had met Nei, his future wife, who is living in the Blue Mountains at this time. The first meeting between Lord Thorin and Lord Gloin is in the forges of Ered Luin. Thorin is taking his father’s sword to Groin, a master smither, renowned even by the King himself, to be repaired. Thorin is derisive of Master Groin, as he is a drunkard, but he has nevertheless respect for his ironworking skill, which surpasses even that of Thorin himself. Here is an account of their meeting.
