I saw on my dash earlier today that some people (I think it was closetshipping and bilboo! [hello, if you’re seeing this, I just started following and this is pretty much the way I say ‘hullo’ without saying ‘hullo’ so… Hullo! You blog good.]) talking about a North and South Hobbit AU! I think they were talking about putting the characters from the Hobbit in the time and place of North and South. I only caught a little bit of it on my dash this morning.

I though, wouldn’t it be interesting to take the situation and adapt it for Middle Earth? And Thorin and Bilbo specifically?

I got a lot of headcanon I ruminated while making this speedpaint based on that screencap of all our my favorite part!

so why isn’t there a north and south bagginshield au huh fandom what is your excuse this is downright inexcusable

bilboo, care to weigh in? ;)

OH YES

it’s there on my to-write list it’s theeereeee

this AU is literally perfect come on tell me if I…

tHANK YOU YOU ARE THE BEST PERSON AND I LOVE YOU FOR THIS THANK YOU I COULD KISS YOUR FEET HOW I HAVE BEEN CRAVING THIS AU

(id personally read male bilbo. i mean. one could. tweak society rules a bit. wink wonk. but fem bilbo is brilliant too!)

Can I also vote for male Bilbo? It would be fascinating to read a m/m bagginshield story set in that time period. Or like Closetshipping said, you can tweak the rules and have homosexuality accepted

Yeah, I’m fascinated by the idea of a historically accurate m/m pairing, we sort of have the f/m one already from the original show. It would certainly add a lot of tension, though I agree it would not have been as much of a danger as modern audiences like to think it was (the history of such acceptance is not a straight line).

You guys are right. And making them historically accurate won’t be difficult, and it will certainly be amazingly challenging and interesting. One day I’ll sit down and write down proper notes on that era’s point of view on homosexual relationships, because it’s pretty fabulous, but for now let’s just agree that this SHOULD BE a thing, and WILL BE a thing ;u;

Anonymous asked: Putting my vote in for normal Bilbo

YES I got four anons all asking for the same thing (along the lines of ‘pleas do not erase the ship’s homosexuality, which is… well. true) and you guys are right, it will be tons more interesting oh man oH MAN yes alright it is decided thank you for helping out ;u;
