The Green Witch

After leaving Beorn's house, the Company of Thorin Oakenshield traveled to the edge of Mirkwood. But what if they decided to go around, instead of risking themselves among the dangerous woodland path? What if, instead, they travel to the North?

This is, indeed, what the company decides to do, and in doing so, they meet a new ally: a witch named Eskamë. For some reason, Gandalf has brought their company to her, though the dwarves are at first suspicious. The witch seeks to help them with their quest, and in the meantime finds one young blonde dwarf to be of particular interest.

This is set mostly in the movie-verse, though it is most definitely an AU. There will be some references to Tolkien's original work as well.
