I ran the Tolkien panel with [personal profile] zana16 at Con.txt this past weekend and had a great time! I'm even more excited to brush up on the Lord of the Rings and (finally) read the Silmarillion, now. At the end of the panel we asked for recs from participants and this is the list we came up with.

To Find Our Long Forgotten Gold (229583 words) by Wealhtheow21
Fandom: The Hobbit - All Media Types
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Summary: AU of movieverse. It is many years since tragedy struck the line of Durin when the youngest heir was lost to a pack of orcs. Now Bilbo Baggins, having agreed only to stealing treasure from a dragon, finds himself instead tangled up in a web of tragedy and revenge. Perhaps it's foolhardy of him to get involved at all, but really, someone has to try and keep these dwarves out of trouble. As for the rest, well, what is lost does not always stay lost forever.

The Secret (24057 words) by Glorfindel
Fandom: The Hobbit - All Media Types
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Bofur/Dwalin
Summary: Bofur found out Dwalin’s secret quite by accident, the second (or was it the third?) time Dwalin saved his life.

Time (6413 words) by cimorene
Fandom: Lord of the Rings - Tolkien
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Gimli/Legolas
Summary: Set during The Two Towers, book canon. Going into battle, Gimli becomes preoccupied with mortality.

Promise (11961 words) by cimorene
Fandom: Lord of the Rings - Tolkien
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Gimli/Legolas
Summary: During the end of FOTR, book canon, with mild spoilers. Legolas comes to terms with what he wants.

your Axe to my throat, my Knife to yours (70437 words) by Thorinsmut
Fandom: The Hobbit (2012), The Hobbit - J. R. R. Tolkien
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Major Character Death, Rape/Non-Con
Relationships: Dwalin/Nori, Nori/shiny things
Summary: Nori is an excellent thief with a complicated family, Dwalin is an excellent guardsman with complicated feelings about a certain thief, a lot of UST and some smut happens, and then they both join a suicide quest to reclaim a mountain from a dragon and things get even more complicated and smutty.
Someday, they might actually be forced to come to terms with the fact that they don't hate each other.

Letters Over the Sea by Gytha and Prembone was recommended, but I haven't been able to find a copy online. Links would be welcome if anyone has one!

This is the writeup for the [community profile] con_txt 2014 Fun With Inverted Tropes panel, hosted by your mods [personal profile] corbae and [personal profile] v_greyson. We had a lot of fun moderating this panel, and want to thank everyone who came out! The audience participation was stellar, and we turned many tropes (and occasionally a mod) upside down. We did not call anyone’s remarks out by name, but if you’d like credit for your clever quip, please let us know in the comments!
