The day starts out like any other, until Sunny Starscout purchases a most peculiar book. She brings it back to her friends for a little book club, until the book itself transports them to the land of Middle-Earth. There, they become involved and a part of the Company of Thorin Oakenshield, and by extension alongside Bilbo Baggins. Along the way, they encounter a plentiful of beings and creatures such as Elves, Hobbits, Dwarves, wizards, and a Skin-Changer; but also the Orcs of Gundabad, the Goblins of the Misty Mountains, and the great Fire-Worm that stole Erebor all those decades ago.

Not only with the Mane 5 risk their own lives and their friendships, but also discover more about themselves.

LOTR tag because it's set in Middle-Earth.

This is an interest LOTR x MLP crossover. The opening is captivating.

You could even out the pacing a little though, as there are some parts that are a bit rushed. Another thing is that Sunny seems to know what is happening. Maybe you could add some confusion or speculation to her part, so that she would not appear to know everything, as it would make her dry and less natural.

That said, it is really good. Have yet to find more LOTR x MLP as good as this :twilightsmile:

The intro was very familiar for it like I saw a fanfic about but instead of team S.H.I.P.Z is the Mane 6 and Starlight.It almost exact same.

๐Ÿค” Hmmmm

I love that you included lines from the Peter Jackson films, as those films get far too much hate than they actually deserve.

Here the film fiction stories really enjoyable thanks for the amazing work here. Glad to read the different updated stories here these are pretty enjoyable. Thanks for your work on https://australianwritings.net/dissertation-help/ please continue to bring always such recommending stuff online that would be supportive.

Music for the end of the chapter 12:

Afterwards the dwarves and ponies helped to clear away the dishes, with Bilbo being less than egregious as always.

"Excuse me! That is a doily, not a dishcloth."

"But it's full of holes," Bofur said.

"It's supposed to look like that. It's crochet."

"Oh, and a wonderful game it is. If you got the balls for it."

"I prefer track running," Zipp amused.

"Bebother and confusticate these dwarves!"

"My dear Bilbo, what on earth is the matter?" Gandalf asked.

Bilbo did not drop chagrined state of mind. "What's the matter? I'm surrounded by dwarves. What are they doing here?!"

"Oh, they're quite a merry gathering." Hitch was inclined to say it remains to be seen, but held back. "Once you get used to them."

"I don't want to get used to them! Look at the state of my kitchen! There's mud trailing the carpet! Th-they've pillaged the pantry! I'm not even going to tell you what they've done in the bathroom. They've all but destroyed the plumbing. I just don't understand what they're doing in my house!"

Presently Pipp approached Bilbo, dinner plate in hoof. "I'm sorry to interrupt Bilbo, but what should I do with my plate?"

Suddenly Fili appeared. "'Ere you go Pipp, give it to me."

He then tossed right to Kili like it was a baseball, right passed Gandalf, before being thrown yet again to Bifur at the kitchen sink.

"Excuse me! That is my mother's West Farthing crockery! It's over a hundred years old!" Bilbo cried, helpless to the flying plates above his head, and the drumming of his silverware on the dining table.

"And could you not do that?! You'll blunt them!"

"Oh, d'ya hear that lads?" Bofur chuckled. "He says we'll blunt the knives."

The dwarves then all broke into one of their many songs:

"Kili: Blunt the knives, bend the forks!

Fili: Smash the bottles, and burn the corks!

Dwarf chorus: Chip the glasses and crack the plates...

That's what Bilbo Baggins hates!"

By now Dwalin began strumming a string instrument, Bofur blowing a wooden flute, and Oin make-shifting with a teapot. Pipp immediately caught with their song, with Hitch bopping to the melody in his chair.

"Chorus: Cut the cloth, tread on the fat!

Leave the bones on the bedroom mat!

Pour the milk on the pantry floor...!

Splash the wine on every door!"

Soon, Izzy's joined the chorus, with Zipp and Sunny doing a sort of pony-styled Irish jig.

"Chorus: Dump the crocks in a boiling bowl!

Pound them up with a thumping pole!

And when you're finished if they are whole...

Send then down the hall to roll!"

By now, Hitch joined the singing chorus, but was mostly marveled at Pipp's smooth and bedazzling movements above the rest, while Balin simply rolled his eyes at their foolishness.

"Chorus: That's what Bilbo Baggins hates!"

Bilbo pushed past the crowd in the kitchen, only to find that every plate, bowl, and cup was neatly cleaned and stacked right in the middle kitchen countertop. Even the ponies found it amusing, not so much Bilbo.

For the song:

How would Thorne know about hitch

I'm liking the fact you're combining the movie and book. It's a nice touch.

I'm having a hard time finding motivation, and (to be blunt) you're impatience isn't helping matters
I mean not to be mean, just stating my mind

Don't worry and I'm sorry.

But if you want motivation, watch the third movie to get inspired

Hello, how's it going? Love the story that you had. Hope you got your motivation to make more chapters of it soon.

Yeeahhhh, this could do without the lyrics copy-pasted into the fic, and maybe some of the film dialogue, too. Maybe you should assume we've seen the movies and are just here for the ponies and all their respective receptions to being in the Hobbit story. So, decide where you can condense dialogue stretches into summaries and put the focus back on the ponies' parts in the scenes.

It's good otherwise. Feels epic, like the movie. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

(Heh, I remember those RHJunior fics i used to read that featured the "There and Back Again" movies, but they were in-universe films in cinemaplexes in Equestria. That was all fun. ๐Ÿ˜„)

So, despite my critique in the last chapter, I'm fine with how you handled the pony integration in the story in this chapter. Ok? Ok. Hope it continues in future chapters. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Yeah I started to take concern at the presence of full lyrics again, but then I realized this is the tune that was present in the Fellowship of the Ring book! Nice callback, that was! I'm cool with it! Though yeah I think it was in the Hobbit movie as well; I saw it just recently, but I don't remember most of the song in that scene.

And indeed it was awesome seeing the extra lore for the new weapons present in the ponies' possession. Did you pull those from a LotR wiki or weapons book?

And it's surprising that the elves know of the ponies like they do! Have they really been watching the comings and goings of multiple worlds? How do they feel about being part of a storybook? Or was it part of the enchanted story (assuming that's all it is) that these certain wise elves would know certain things about their readers?

Also. . .

A nearby splashing was heard, and Pipp was in time to cover Izzy's with her wing, right as Hitch covered her gaze with his hoof. Lindir on the other hand looked on in disgust at the sight before him: the dwarves, minus Thorin, were bathing in the springs right across the way, this time without their undergarments as well.

"What are we looking at?" Izzy asked, still oblivious.

"You don't want to know," Pipp replied shaking her head.

"Why? Is there blood?"

"Well, it's more along the lines of..." Hitch began, but stopped as the sickening feeling of hunger came into his stomach. "Yeah...you don't want to know," he said, now tightly gripping his eyelids shut.

:rainbowhuh: (Uhhhh but the ponies are naked already. Why would they care?) :trixieshiftright: (Yeah I'm like that near every time, whether referring to canon or fanon, cause it doesn't make sense!)

(Ok I'll just say the dwarves were just being disgusting. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!) :twilightsheepish::pinkiesick:
(Man I wish there were new, updated Pony emotes!)

"Don't let go, Hitch," Pipp concerned. "Can you swim?"
"Not since I was a filly," he replied, spitting out excess water.

Colt. A filly's a girl equine. :rainbowderp:

Hmmm, gonna mix around the shipping in the story this time around? :trixieshiftright: I mean, if Kili (or whoever in the movie) wasn't the one stabbed with the arrow, then he's not the one being left behind in Laketown and get tended to by the she-elf later on. Mmmm, is Zipp about to meet her match? :rainbowkiss:
(On top of her sis getting Hitch'd) ๐Ÿ˜

Also, Zipp should still be able to fly, or hobble along on three legs. Though yeah the pain from the wound might be distracting.

Ok now, this song didn't need to be posted in full either, and we can just be told that the dwarves joined in at parts.

(And yeah I reacted when Hitch & Pipp kissed at the end. I was like, "Whaaat? No! Now?!" :twilightoops: lol)

I know right? It's taking too long while he's on hyatus.
