tumblr’s reaction to pluto being voted a planet
Bagginshield is that ship that I thought, “oh hey that’s cute, when I’m done dicking around in this other part of the fandom I’ll give them a look.” And now it’s just me, sobbing into my phone at 4am because, “he gave him a mithril shirt like NO BIG DEAL I JUST WANT TO SEE YOU SAFE FOREVER BUT ALSO DRAPE YOU IN THE FINEST WORKMANSHIP WITHIN ALL OF EREBOR AND ALSO SHOW YOU HOW RICH I AM. SEE BILBO I CAN PROTECT AND PROVIDE FOR YOU LOVE ME BILBO.”

THIS IS SO CRAZY

OCTOBER IS TOMORROW
So, I found Burnett’s “The Secret Garden” in a bookstore today and, even if I never read it (but I bought it so it’s in my “to do” list), the consequent AU was inevitable.
Bilbo Baggins is a young biritish man who lived in India until his parents died (he’s about 20/25 years old in my mind, because I want it to be a Bagginshield >___>). He never married and he’s alone so he decides to go back to England and accepts the offer of his father’s friend Hamfast Gamgee to live with him and his family until he’s able to find a job and a place to live.
Hamfast is the private gardener of the Durin family and lives in a dependance inside Erebor Manor, a large country mansion surrounded by moorland. Thorin Durin, head of the house, agrees to have Bilbo in the mansion as long as he works to pay for what he eats. Bilbo agrees and becomes assistant gardener, taking advantage of his love for plants and flowers.
One day he finds a key hidden in a hole under some roses and asks Hamfast about it, but the gentle man can’t answer his questions because he knows nothing about it. Later he finds an old door in a wall hidden by ivy, he tries the key, the key works and Bilbo discovers a seret garden abandoned and infested with weeds. Fearing of being in a forbidden part of the house, he closes the door and walks away.
In the meantime he becomes friend with the house staff (guess who? Yes, the Company) above all with Bofur, one of the mansion’s attendants. He asks about the Durin family and why Master Thorin never shows himself outside his rooms. Bofur tells him that an accident happened ten years before in the secret garden and Thorin’s sister, Dis, died falling off a tree and leaving behind two sons. Dis’ death was the last of a long list of misfortunes, since Thorin’s little brother Frerin died in battle and Dis’ husband Vili died of illness soon after the birth of his second son. Furthermore, his younger nephew Kili has a fragile health and is bedridden since he was very young (I image Fili and Kili 13 and 11 years old). Overcome by grief Thorin sealed the garden and threw the key away.
Some days later Bilbo is in the mansion’s garden tending the roses when a blonde boy stands beside him and starts watching him. The boy is pale and serious and it’s obvious that he isn’t used to spend time outside. Bilbo asks his name and he introduces himself as Fili Durin, older nephew of Thorin. They start talking about roses and Fili reveals that roses were his mother’s favorite flowers and also his little brother’s favourite. So Bilbo cuts a red rose and gaves it to Fili with the promise to bring it to Kili. Fili smiles and runs away towards the house. The day after Fili comes to him and prays him to enter the house because Kili wants to know him and can’t go out.
So he starts talking with the boys and realizes that Kili’s bad health is due to the time spent inside and lack of exercise. Under Fili’s insistence he explains so to Thorin who, in the end, gives permission to bring Kili outside on a weelchair provided that Bilbo becomes their guardian and is responsible of their safety outside the mansion. Bilbo is firstly taken aback bu then accepts.
Together they start cleaning and tending at the secret garden, after Bilbo lets it slip that he had found the key. They decide to keep it secret from Thorin and in due time the garden starts to live and bloom again. Kili gets better and even starts walking again and both the brothers become very fond of Bilbo, who becomes almost a motherly figure.
Kili’s health also improves Thorin’s mood and the man starts spending more and more time with Bilbo and his nephews. It doesn’t take long for them to fall in love and suddely the sad mansion in the moor is lively and bright again.
Untill one day Fili and Kili go to the secret garden without Bilbo and Kili falls of a tree trying to help a fallen bird back into its nest. The boy’s fine, he just has a broken arm, but Thorin doesn’t take it well and blames Bilbo, insulting him and kicking him out o the household.
Bilbo leaves but Fili and Kili won’t be silent about it and start yelling at their uncle, saying how amazing and gentle and caring is Bilbo and “Kili’s fine, uncle, really! He’s not mum, he’s not gone, but Bilbo would be if you don’t do something!”. Thorin undertand that he can’t lose Bilbo either and leaves the house on horseback trying yo get to Bilbo before he catches the train to London. He finds him in time, declares his love to him and Bilbo goes back to Erebor Manor and becomes Thorin’s consort. Thorin gives him the secret garden as wedding gift.
Idk, I think I need it badly.
I should probably go to sleep…
I should probably-
just accept your fate…
