The Hobbit, 2 Recs, Fem!Bilbo Baggins/Thorin Oakenshield

Pairing: Fem!Bilbo Baggins/Thorin Oakenshield

Why This Must Be Read: In an alternate Regency universe, Miss Bilbo Baggins is the village vicar, roped in by Gandalf to help Captain Oakenshield and his Company take back Erebor and his inheritance from the creepy Lord Smaug. The Hobbit is quite a good book for genderbending - you could make Bilbo and half the dwarves female, and it wouldn't do anything to the story maybe save make it a little more diverse. It works in fic too. Here, Bilbo is good at her job and cares for her congregation, reminding Thorin that as a potential Lord it isn't just about enjoying the riches of his land and title, but also about his duty to his people. The fic is gently paced, but with a fair bit of world building, and like all of leupagus' stuff it's really well-written.
