The Hobbit Big Bang, originally known as the The Hobbit Story Big Bang, was a big bang challenge in The Hobbit fandom. Authors had to write a minimum of 10,000 words, and artists could make one of the following, digital or traditional art, such as a “bookcover” for the story, a wallpaper, a banner, a comic strip, an illustration, or a fanmix of at least 8 songs that relates to the story including a front and back cover, a video/trailer for the story, at least 10 icons, or a podfic of the story. Stories could be based on the novel or the films. The challenge ran annually from 2014-2017, however the 2017 round appears to not be fully completed because the moderator had to drop their duties unexpectedly.

Rating: E
Word Count: 87,508
Characters/Pairings: Thorin/Thranduil
Summary: "Mirkwood has fallen, and the Necromancer (they say) has found something he once lost, and orcs and darker things are crawling..." The world labors under the growing might of Sauron, and as Erebor struggles to survive, Thorin is caught between his nephews' machinations, his political alliances and rivalries, and his new prisoner-- the fallen Elvenking Thranduil, whose beauty has been the subject of Thorin's twisted obsession for a century. Will Thorin use his new plaything as a lever against his opponents, or will he break Thranduil's will and despoil him in vengeance? And is there perhaps a third way, a path back toward the light in this broken and befouled Middle-Earth? This very dark AU story contains intense themes and sexual material, but is not intended to be solely pornographic. Lore and speculation, extensive character development, broad thematic scope, and an emotional roller-coaster of internal and external conflict.

Rating/warnings/etc: PG-13 for bloodshed. There are ghosts, too.
Summary: Unlike other races of Middle Earth, some hobbits can see ghosts. Bilbo is one of them, but until Laketown, this talent never was of any importance. As he recovers from his cold, the ghost of a local boy makes contact - and through him, Bilbo learns that many ghosts linger in Laketown, Dale and Erebor. In return, as the ghosts learn of his talent, they offer their support. If the dragon is slain, they hope for their peace to be restored - and for this, they will help the company. Though, as it turns out, the death of Smaug does not bring peace. And when an army of orcs descends, Bilbo agrees to accept the help of the dead, knowing it may cost him his life.

Summary: Curumo met his Aiwendil for the first time in the gardens of Yavanna, a crown of flowers in his hair, whistling to the birds in the trees, his golden smile brighter than the light of the sun herself. Gandalf met his Belladonna for the first time in the gardens of her father's house, a crown of flowers in her hair, laughing with her many siblings. Radagast the Brown disappears in TA 3018, never to be seen again. Saruman, deceiver and betrayer, is the last to see him, before his end. Belladonna Baggins, remarkable and loving wife to the late Bungo Baggins, dies of grief, eight years after her husband's passing. Gandalf the Grey returns to his mission eight years before the death of his beloved Belladonna, leaving behind a wife and son, and laying his hobbitish illusion to rest forever. Bilbo Baggins, son of one Bungo Baggins, goes on an adventure. Since then, he has not been without his father, until his last days, and the beginning of the War of the Ring.

Title: Once Upon A Middle Earth
Author: mahmfic

Fandom: The Hobbit, Once Upon A Time
Characters/Pairings: Thorin/Bilbo, Bofur/Nori, Dwalin/Ori, Fili/Kili, Smaug/Bilbo, everyone from the company plus most characters from The Hobbit and OUAT will pop up. Rumplestilskin and Regina play decent parts (because you know they are always the villain).
Summary: While travelling to Bree after a failed lead to find his father, Thorin Oakenshield stumbles upon a strange looking imp and a man dressed in odd clothes with a tall hat. The green-gold skinned imp goes by the name Rumplestilskin and offers Thorin a deal—the guarantee that within the next year he will reclaim Erebor and become King Under the Mountain. Thorin agrees, understanding the imp's terms that 'magic always comes with a price'. But the deal snowballs into several events that cause Thorin and his company to later be included in the Evil Queen's curse and to lose all of their memories and happy endings. Except that Thorin does remember this other life while living in this strange new world. He has to live in it without a crown, watching his nephews struggle from a distance, and worst of all, see the love of his live being wooed by a dragon. About half of the company will get back stories in this fic. Can't logically fit everyone in, sadly. The other characters besides Thorin, have encounters with Regina and Rumplestilskin. This fic will cover all of season one of Once Upon A Time, ending when Rumplesktilskin brings back magic to Storeybrooke. Depending on things, there might be a sequel after the BB is over, but no guarantees

Summary: Dis and Nirli are dead, and Thorin is left to pick up the pieces of his family. Unfortunately, it's never quite that simple, and Thorin finds out that he's not quite the best father in the world. He's not throwing in the Towel, but when presented with a parenting support group, Thorin decides to take a leap of faith. He hates taking leaps. Thranduil's only going because Elrond's going, he could care less about getting help. He has his nanny, Haldir, to take care of everything. But Elrond insists, and yes he has a backbone, he's just being a good friend. Whatever, he has work to do. Both men can agree on one thing though, Bilbo Baggins is a perfect menace.

She's terrified, she knows her father will be furious and disappointed in her and the scandal! The King of Dale's daughter an unwed mother! So Bolmi, perhaps not thinking this through, offers to tell Bard it's his child. And of course Bard demands that he do the right thing and marry her, which he does.

Summary: Moving from one small town to another should be unremarkable, but Bilbo learns just how wrong he was when he gets warned about a giant bear in the woods. However no one warned him about the tall, dark, and unfairly attractive man living on the outskirts of town. Beorn, on the other hand, is perfectly comfortable with his life at the edge of Dale where he doesn't bother and isn't bothered by the townspeople - but when a newcomer comes to town he finds himself wanting to break that particular rule. Meeting on a midnight walk under the full moon is surely a romantic way to start a relationship, even if one of you happen to be a bear at the time.

Summary:“Thranduil’s hands fall clenched into fists by his sides, his fingernails digging into his palm. He doesn’t wake up, and a part of him is relieved; sometimes pain is the price to pay for a little bit of comfort, and comfort is what he finds in the lines of Bard’s face.” When the eighteenth month since Bard's death comes, Thranduil wakes on a strange feeling. He follows a mysterious blue orb through the ill trees of his forest, where he is shown precious memories of his ephemeral time with Bard. But is it a trick of his mind, a dream, or reality?

Summary: It had been many years since Bilbo had seen his Dwarves. Driven by his loneliness and nostalgia, one night he decided to re-read the contract he had signed so many years ago, hoping to find catharsis. Instead, what he found was burning rage at all the ridiculous clauses the Dwarves had slipped in without his notice. In the end, Bilbo knew there was only one thing to do. He would travel to Erebor, and have very specific words with the King.

Summary: Erebor is under siege. While the future is uncertain and the outcome of the coming battle anyone's guess, what Ori thought was only a bit of fun shared on the road takes a turn towards something completely different. Of course, nothing is ever simple when the young heirs of Durin are involved. And then there's the library of a lost kingdom, which becomes a place of discovery and refuge in more ways than one. In short: three young idiots in love. I've been told there's fluff. I know there's pining. And smut. Some.

Warnings/Spoilers: canon typical violence
Summary Long ago, when the first Dark Lord shaped the first dragons, the Valar did not leave the peoples of Middle-Earth defenseless against them. They reached out to certain heroes and formed them into heroes capable of killing dragons and making sure they stay dead. These heroes were known as Dragonborn. Now in the Third Age, when in the wake of Smaug's death it's revealed that the ancient dragons of Morgoth are somehow being revived, a Dragonborn is needed once more. But instead of the Valar choosing one hero, they instead split the Dragonborn's soul between two unlikely candidates - Bilbo Baggins and Thorin Oakenshield. They have to discover who is behind the resurrection of the dragons before the most feared dragon in Middle Earth, Ancalagon the Black is revived, and learn to master their new powers. However, with the Arkenstone lost in the horde, and the siege of Erebor broken by the elves having to withdraw and protect their lands from the orcs streaming to Dol Guldur, Thorin is still struggling with goldsickness. He is only snapped out of it when a second dragon attacks Erebor...

Summary: 19th century, Austrian Empire - somewhere in Hungary: this time Thorin and Bilbo's journey begins with Thorin's desire to change his dramatic past. Haunted by the loss of his loved ones and the decline of his family’s fortune, Doctor Thorin Eijkenskialdi conducts unspeakable experiments in the last remaining property of the once formidable Durins’ estate. Rumour has it that he has grown obsessed with the idea of conquering Death, and that he is fostering some great evil behind the high walls of his castle - something he should be afraid of in the first place. With the help of his assistant Dwalin, Thorin hopes to bring a new creature of his own device to life, despite the growing antagonism of the local folks, and the persecutions and suspicion Khazad people have always been subjected to in the Empire. Enters one Bilbo Baggins - is it redemption or damnation? A dark twist on Bilbo and Thorin's unexpected journey, and a rewriting of the classical Mary Shelley's tale of Frankenstein and his creature,We Shall Be Monsters is not for the faint-hearted, but promises gothic delights, unhealthy obsessions, a reasonable amount of screaming and a trip too many to the graveyard.

Warnings/Spoilers: ​Heavy violence (including torture), mentions of rough sex, mentions of terminal illnesses. Individual warnings are given chapter by chapter.
Summary: What happens when you put a fistfight-happy Scotsman (Dwalin MacFundin), a knife-obsessed sniper (Nori Rison) and an MI6 agent gone rogue (Bofur Broadbeam) together? Well, definitely nothing good, if you were to ask Elrond Peredhel, the recently-appointed head of Scotland Yard. Almost two years after a mysterious organisation known as The Eye struck a series of deadly attacks in the heart of London, what is known in most circles as the Golden Trio, this delightful collaboration of three of Europe’s worst (and therefore best) contract killers, snipers and torturers-for-hire decides it’s the perfect time to get themselves caught up in something much, much bigger than they are: Nori Rison’s always found it hard to let go of his grudges, and when the offending party happens to be Lucky, aka The Mouth, aka one of The Eye’s most loyal and deadly agents, things might get a little… complicated. And God forbid Shelob Örümcek ever catch wind of what's happening.

Family, though, is a tricky thing, and there's fun to be had when they come looking for their kin.
