Ten days in Buckland as Bilbo tries to convince his relatives that Frodo belongs with him. Significant speculation about minor LOTR characters, and gap-filling on Shire culture, society, politics and economics.

NOTE: I do not write children's stories. I deal with mature topics in all of my works. Expect to find direct presentation of sexuality, politics, violence, economics, and other non-trivial topics.
