FFF: Story Recommendations (2)

all-about-villains

Welcome back to Fanfic Feature Friday! I’m bringing you more recommendations this week, both short and long.

The Hobbit: Child of Earth and Sky by ? (AU, Novel Length)

Certain events in Bilbo’s life were always destined to come to pass, but the will of Belladonna Took is not to be trifled with, and her choice may yet change the lives of many.

This is the story of how Bilbo became the kin of the Eagles of Manwë, and all that happened after.

A story in which Bilbo is tough, the Eagles are funny and fierce, and canon is twisted just enough to be seen with new eyes. Bilbo/Thorin

An Eye For Quality by Linelen (AU, Novel Length)

Fíli lived his life by an old dwarven proverb: when a fool drops a treasure, a wise man picks it up (it sounded better in the original khuzdul).

Bella Baggins never quite fit in the Shire. Perhaps she was made for the mountains, instead.

Features female!Bilbo, good characterizations, and happy endings for all.

Star Wars: Tomorrow (there’ll be more of us) by dimircharmer

“FN-2187 was real, right?” She sounds very young again. “Please tell me he was real.”

“I’m real,” said Finn, who was on his first patrol since his back healed. “And my name’s Finn now.”

Her eyes widened. “You have a name?

Or: The resistance is starting to get stormtrooper defectors. Finn helps them out.

This is the fic that made me look for Force Awakens fics.

Defiance: These things without names by CherryIce (AU, Short)

The air on Earth tastes strange, sits lightly upon Stahma’s tongue but heavily upon her skin, atmospheric pressure and gravity greater than her home. Alak’s feet are pressed so much more firmly to the ground than were hers, as a child.

I adore this story. I wish it was so much longer than it is – or that the author wrote more about the alien cultures from Defiance.

Harry Potter: Harriet Potter Is by setepenre_set (AU, Short)

There are stories with snakes that bite and say {you knew what I was when you picked me up} but this isn’t one of them. This is the kind of story where the abandoned child walks in the jungle beneath the branches full of hissing things and tells them {we be of one blood ye and I}.

 A female!Harry story, in which she chooses Slytherin instead of Gryffindor. Beautifully written.

That’s all for this week. Take a gander and let me (and the authors) know what you think!
