Clarity by Wild Iris
Calm vignette set during the Fellowship's stay in Rivendell, but focusing on Bilbo's earlier adventures in Mirkwood. Precise, unsentimental characterisations, plus a final line to die for

Clarity of Purpose by Mithen
'"Seek for the shield which is oaken; in Khazad-dûm it dwells."' A rich, complex AU novel that fuses The Hobbit with LotR, in which the quest to destroy the Ring sets out 50 years earlier, & with a rather different Fellowship. Events start out mirroring LotR closely, but spiral further away as the novel unfolds; perhaps because of the time shift, things often turn out less tragically than in the original. Mithen explores novel regions of Middle-earth & provides a supporting cast of thousands, including Entwives & Blue Wizards. A real treat!
