The prompt: I have become increasingly interested in The Hobbit. I would love especially a story about Dale, Esgaroth, and the men/dwarves/elves of that region, but would be happy for a piece tied to an earlier part of the adventure, or a prequel/sequel as well. I also wouldn't say no to hearing what your favorite character was getting up to during the quest for Esgaroth, or how the aftereffects of those events impacted them.
