For the first time ever.  I know the Ocelot's Adventures and Ferret Tales are AUs, but Holmes and Watson are still doing canon things, even if aided by some unexpected associates.

And I've written a few Sherlock BBC AUs - penguin!Sherlock, the obligatory coffee shop, and a ballet version.  But these have all been ficlets.

However, this is 5,000 words of Hobbit AU.  I've written it for my bingo card over on DW's GenBingo.  I decided to write one chapter per prompt to make a line.  And, apart from the first 280 words, I've written it in the last five days.

I'm not convinced about it.  How far am I true to the characters - who are no longer a dwarf and a hobbit (yes, its Thorin/Bilbo, although mostly Thorin & Bilbo)?  How effective is the world building - not very - in order to make it work I would really need to write a lot more description, which I don't want to do.

I'm going to post it, because I am certainly not wasting all that effort and I have achieved my bingo.  I shall need to get it posted by the end of the month, but I think I'm going to post a chapter at a time.

It all begins, when a young man, by the name of Thorin Oakenshield, is taken by his uncle on a diplomatic mission to another land, where he meets Bilbo Baggins, the son of a baker.  All I need is a title.
