The Oddities of Fate and Circumstance
In the past two days Bard has smuggled the King under the Mountain into Lake-town, has found himself in the midst of a dragon attack, has then slain said attacking dragon, almost drowned, almost been proclaimed king and has just woken to an Elven army in their makeshift refugee camp.
Now he'd really like to get that simple life back, without stubborn Dwarves, attacking Orcs and the sudden need for diplomacy. He'd also really, really like for everybody to stop calling him Lord of Dale.
However, he wouldn't mind keeping the fabulous Elvenking around who's being so generous with his wine, opinions and turnips.In Sleep What Dreams Might Come
There's an Elvenking in his bed, a Dwarven realm at his doorstep and a dragon in his nightmares.
Bard's days used to be much simpler.
Why I loved it : It was like reading a true sequel to the film! I loved how the author focused on the main pairing but also on the practical side of rebuilding Dale and dealing with everything happening around them. There was angst, humor, fluff and everything was well balanced!
