Desolation of Smaug Ideas Can't Post

Hi all!

This is my first post here, though I have been lurking around for years, so if this topic doesn't belong here or has already been done, feel free to say so.

Anyway, seeing as I loved An Unexpected Journey just as much as I loved the original trilogy, I've been thinking about what I think will happen in the next one, The Desolation of Smaug. Things kind of expanded and now I have a very, very long (probably too long) idea of how things might turn out. Of course it will probably end up being completely different, but still, I decided that it would be fun to post it here and see if anybody has anything to say. So here it is:

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Azog takes control of the Orcs of the Misty Mountains following the death of the Great Goblin. He seeks revenge on Thorin Oakenshield and wants to take their case to Mount Gundabad to raise an army to take over the Lonely Mountain.
Meanwhile, the company of Thorin travels to the hall of Beorn, a skin-changer. Beorn welcomes the group, and verifies their story by traveling to the slope of the mountain with his kin and seeing Azog and his army traveling to Gundabad.
In the fortress of Dol Guldur, the Necromancer, actually Sauron, sends his servants, the Nazgul, across the land to build up his army, readying themselves for the conquest of Middle-Earth. Nazgul agents spread across the world. Around the Desolation of Smaug, a raid of Orcs is heard of by the guard of Lake-Town, including Bard. Bard and his men try to stop the raid but the Orcs are recruited by the Nazgul and all of the guards are killed except for Bard. Bard returns to Lake-Town and tells the Master that something is going on with the Orcs and that they need to ensure that Smaug himself will not be recruited. However, the Master dismisses him; nobody knows that the Master and his servant Alfrid are being paid off by Bolg, the leader of the Dol Guldur Orcs.
Radagast arrives at Beornís Hall and tells Gandalf and Beorn that they need to stop the Necromancer before his darkness spreads across Middle-Earth. Gandalf decides to go with him to find evidence for the White Council to declare war, parting ways with Thorinís company in an emotional farewell. The company is directed towards the now-dangerous Mirkwood Forest. The company is anxious without Gandalf, but enter the forest nonetheless.
Gandalf, Beorn, and Radagast travel to The High Fells, where the men of the North once trapped all of the Nazgul. They find all of the graves empty, and find traces of dark magic that only Sauron could have summoned. This is their proof. Gandalf has Radagast send birds to all of their allies across Middle-Earth, hoping to stop the evil before it has a chance to start. The birds go to Lothlorien, Rivendell, Isengard, Thranduilís Hall, and Lake-Town. Galadriel and Elrond agree to send forces right away. Saruman considers stopping all of this, but determines that the Necromancerís powers could be given to him if he was defeated, and so he sends forces. Thranduil and the Master both refuse, Thranduil because he does not want to get involved, and the Master because of Bolg. Thranduilís refusal greatly angers his son, Legolas, who decides to take some forces anyway, including Tauriel.
Meanwhile, Bilbo faces his fears in the dark forest. The company encounters an enchanted river that puts anyone who wades in it to sleep. Fili and Kili manage to get a boat from the banks, but Bombur falls into the river and is put to sleep. During the night, they protect Bomburís body, and notice many dark things around them. Eventually, trying to find their bearings, they send Bilbo up a tree. Bilbo breaks the canopy of the forest and finds the view beautiful.
That night, giant spiders attack and capture the Dwarves, bringing them to their lair at the base of the ancient fortress of Dol Guldur. Bilbo barely manages to escape with the aid of his mysterious Ring, and travels after the spiders to rescue his friends. When he arrives at Dol Guldur, so do the armies of the White Council. Immediately, a battle is raged. The Necromancer has already amassed a powerful army and they fight not only with the Elven armies but also with Beornís men and many of Radagastís animals. During the chaos of battle, the Necromancer feels a mysterious energy from below (the Ring), and sends Bolg to investigate.
Bilbo rescues the Dwarves and battles the spiders, killing each of them bravely. He decides to name his sword Sting because of the endeavor. However, Bolg arrives and the company is forced to retreat. Bolgís father is Azog, and he knows of the vendetta against Thorin. As such, he takes an Orc army to pursue them.
Meanwhile, the White Council army is almost defeated but manages to break into Dol Guldur and defeat the Nazgul, who flee with the Necromancer. In a stunning display of power, Galadriel uses her magic to actually crumble the fortress, destroying all within.
The White Council parts ways following the battle, believing that they have purged the world of darkness once more. Saruman steals several sacred objects, including a Palantir, from the ruins and returns to Isengard. Gandalf, however, is not happy with the lack of a body for the Necromancer, and decides to continue investigating alongside Radagast.
Meanwhile, Bilbo watches as the company is captured by Legolas and Tauriel, who are returning home to Thranduilís Hall. Thranduil, already furious at Legolas, locks the Dwarves in the dungeons until they reveal their quest. Bilbo manages to infiltrate the Hall and hides out for a while. He is eventually captured by Tauriel, but she does not turn him in. Instead, she guesses that the Dwarves are trying to defeat Smaug, and Bilbo confirms it. She had heard the White Council speaking of the dangers of Smaug and the Necromancer, and so she helps Bilbo free the Dwarves. They drug Galion, the butler, and hide the Dwarves in wine-barrels before sending them bobbing down the river. Thranduil is furious when he learns of this, and sends his men to find them.
Gandalf and Radagast travel to the Desolation and are disturbed to learn that Bilbo and the others have not made it to Lake-Town yet. Gandalf discovers that the Master of Lake-Town is in league with the Orcs and is providing shelter for them (including one Nazgul). The two are forced to flee, but are caught and taken by the nomadic Orcs. During all of this, Azog and his Orcs plead their case to the leaders of Mount Gundabad, who refuse to aid him, citing the recent defeat of the Necromancer as proof that the Orcs will never rise, despite their being millions of them.
As the company travels down the river, they are attacked from the banks by Bolg and his men. The group barely manages to escape when the Orcs become engaged in a fight with Thranduilís elves. The company eventually manages to make it to Lake-Town, and they are rescued by Bard.
Bard presents the company to a massive gathering in the Town Square, and they are treated like celebrities. Thorin is celebrated as the returning King Under the Mountain. However, while the others are in a ceremonial dinner, Bilbo and Bard get to know each other outside. Bard reveals that he is related to the line of Girion, a line of kings who lived in Dale, the now-abandoned city in the shadow of Erebor. All that is left of their line is the Black Arrow, which has been passed down. Bard hopes to pass it down to his young son, Bain. It is then that they discover the group of Orcs, including Bolg, who has arrived. They are planning an assassination attempt on Thorin, via poison by Alfrid. Bard defeats the Orcs and sends them fleeing, while Alfrid is caught and interrogated by the guard (the Master denies knowing anything about it).
Alfrid reveals that the Nazgul and some of the other Orcs have travelled to the Lonely Mountain and are trying to get inside to recruit Smaug to the Necromancerís cause. Bilbo, recalling his talk with Tauriel, convinces the company to leave immediately. Using the map, they cross the Desolation of Smaug and find the secret door by solving the riddle.
Bilbo volunteers to use his Ring to sneak inside and find out about what their standings against Smaug are. When Bilbo goes inside, the Nazgul and the Orcs attack Thorin and his men, causing a skirmish on the side of the mountain.
Inside the Mountain, Bilbo finds himself in a conversation with the newly awake Smaug. The two talk and Smaug tries very hard to find Bilbo. Eventually, Bilbo steals a golden cup to bring back to the Company. Absolutely furious at the theft, Smaug leaves the Treasure Chamber and bursts out of the Mountain, flying around it, trying to find the thief. This causes chaos in Lake-Town, as they see the dragon.
The battle between the company and the Orcs is interrupted when Smaug attacks the side of the mountain. The Orcs are all killed, Bolg and the Nazgul barely manage to escape. The company survives by rushing into the Hidden Entrance and hiding as Smaug crushes it.
Still furious, Smaug flies across the Desolation and starts to destroy Lake-Town. Bard fights hard to save his son, Bain, and gets him to safety on the shore, before returning to try and fight Smaug. In the chaos, the Master of Lake-Town is killed as he tries to row across the lake with all of his gold.
Inside the mountain, Bilbo realizes that Lake-Town is being attacked, and also that he is the only person who knows about Smaugís weakpoint. The company reluctantly abandons their inspection of all the treasure (and Thorinís obsession with the Arkenstone) and they find the exit to the Mountain. From Ravenhill, an outpost on the slope of the mountain, they manage to summon a raven. Bilbo tells the raven about the weak spot and the raven flies into Lake-Town, avoiding all of the fire and devastation. The raven finds Bard and tells him about Smaugís weakness.
Bard travels through the chaos and destruction and climbs to the tallest tower (the Town Hall) while it is collapsing and manages to fire his Black Arrow into Smaugís chest, killing him and making him crash-land into the water in the pool at the center of the Town Square.
The next morning, Bard is congratulated by his people, and they decide to restore Dale and crown him king, hoping that the kingdom can prosper like it did in the old days. Meanwhile, Thorin, Bilbo, and the others go inside the mountain to try and find the Arkenstone and restore the Kingdom under the Mountain. Bilbo is confident that their quest is over and he will return home soon.
Unknown to all of them, Azog and the others in Mount Gundabad are wakened when they find that the Necromancer, Bolg, the Nazgul, and all of the Orcs left in the army have arrived (with Gandalf and Radagast as their hostages, as having a wizard could be useful) and plan to unite the armies to conquer Middle-Earth, starting with the Lonely Mountain and Dale.
