Reverse Big Bang Entry - The Mummy AU

It’s not easy being the only hobbit scholar in the field of ancient dwarvish runes. It’s also not easy being the only hobbit in Dale, let alone anywhere outside of the Shire (or perhaps Rivendell). Bilbo himself would probably still be back in his sleepy hometown if not for professor Gandalf Grey insisting he pack up and go on a dig in Ered Luin all those years ago.
Now the world specialist on ancient Khuzdul, Bilbo has certainly never regretted his decision. It would be nice if he had a bit more respect, though. Some dwarves are terribly traditionalist and regret Khuzdul ever being made public to all races. More scandalous, even blasphemous, is the idea of Khuzdul having dialects! Which it does, of course. Bilbo studies them.
Nevertheless, the hobbit spends his days working at the Dale City Library, translating runes and hoping that one day he’ll get a glimpse of the legendary Lonely Mountain peaking out from behind the clouds as he looks out the window of his little apartment at night.
