The wizard’s words still echoed in his ears, promising a life with Bilbo free of the Ring--a long life, a happy and quiet life together. Surely they deserved that much? )

Théoden and Elrond’s sons soon discovered they shared a love of gaming and sparring, and fortunately Théoden’s innate diplomacy reined in the worst of Elrohir and Elladan’s high spirits as they visited the forges and raced goats through the wide halls. )

From the shadows slipped Bilbo Baggins, who, when he had realized the wizard on the doorstep was not Gandalf, had stepped into a darkened corner. If you had asked him why, he could not have said--only that a cold prickle had run down his spine at the wizard's exquisite voice and he had misliked the feeling. )

Their rooms were in a wing next to Balin's quarters, and were as sumptuous as any king's yet as cozy as any hobbit's: warmed by hidden vents, with a large bed piled high with eiderdown pillows and rich velvet throws. )

Summary: Selected and edited by Mr. Frodo Baggins from a trunk full of letters and documents bequeathed to him along with Bag End. There are many more letters, particularly from the King of Erebor, Thorin Oakenshield, which are not included. The letters of Bilbo Baggins over this time, while many and varied, are preserved in the archives of Erebor and are not replicated here. The letters excerpted below cover a span of twenty-six years: from Third Age 2942, when Bilbo returned to the Shire from the Lonely Mountain for the first time, to T.A. 2968.

I must remember that is spring there now, and I have never seen your home in spring. I do not know how the spring sunlight looks as it slants across your kitchen table, or what birds sing outside your window, or how the air smells when scented with all those flowers whose names I cannot remember. )

Chapter Summary: Bilbo prepares to leave Erebor and farewells are said--but farewells are not forever.

I can't leave behind the silver salt and pepper shakers Dori gave me, or the crystal buttons from Mîn. And it would be rude to not take the bronze shield from Gimli, although I can't imagine when I'd need a shield! )

Chapter Summary: Winter turns into spring in Erebor: bittersweet times as the days grow longer and different partings draw near.

There was so much work to be done, so much to be set right. So much to do and so much to learn, and for a while it seemed like they had all the time in the world. )

Chapter Summary: Thorin returns to Erebor, and Bilbo Baggins enters the Lonely Mountain for the first time.

Bilbo found himself missing Fíli and Kíli's chatter intensely. Cheering words seemed to falter in the bleak wind, and the locked and hidden door seemed somehow ominous. )

Chapter Summary: The road from Bree to the Misty Mountains is a smooth one. Only a few crises arise, such as goblin attacks and public speaking.

After hearing Fíli and Kíli praising Bilbo's cooking extravagantly, the wagonmaster decided to put him to work helping with meals. This arrangement made Bilbo feel more useful, but had the drawback of making him run afoul of the official caravan cook, a fussy and meticulous dwarf with very strong ideas of proper cooking. )

Bilbo was at the center of a ring of wide-eyed hobbits, relating tales of his adventures. From his gestures, Thorin inferred that he had gotten to the undead of Fornost stealing his mother's umbrella. )

Chapter Summary: The Shire is introduced to Bilbo's "friends from the East," and it's unclear which of the two will never be the same again.

Thorin's voice had that thoughtful, musing tone that said his mind was elsewhere, but it didn't sound ominous the way it had those long, terrible days going down the Anduin. It sounded warm, comfortable. Bilbo would have said it sounded happy, except he realized he had no idea what a happy Thorin would sound like. )

It was a terrible time, skulking and trembling in the shadows, hiding behind racks of rusted and bloody weapons, creeping always downward, searching. )
