* ChekhovsNews: Early in the epilogue, Lara listens to a news broadcast and hears a mention of mysterious animal tracks found in the town's vicinity. She dismisses it, but the tracks turn out to be from [[spoiler:three wargs whom the dwarves had sent ahead while testing the portal to Earth]].

Added DiffLines:

* MyGodYouAreSerious: At a fair, Lara teasingly asks Bofur to buy her a shawl. She knows that such a gift has romantic connotations in dwarf culture, but she only realizes how ''serious'' said romantic connotations are when Bofur's friends and relations start preparing for their wedding.

Added DiffLines:

* BilingualBonus: Sometimes, in moments of agitation, Lara switches to Romani, her first language, but occasionally she does it to snark at the residents of Middle-earth. Although [[HandWave for some reason]] they understand Russian, the ambulance crew's main language (or rather they hear it as whatever Middle-earth language they speak themselves, only with a weird accent), they don't understand Romani. For the readers' benefit, the author put translations of Lara's Romani phrases in the chapter comments.

Added DiffLines:

* CultureClash: When Thorin gives Elya a new dress and jewels, she immediately thinks he does it to win her over. However, other dwarves explain that jewels are an empty gesture of politeness, while giving a lady a dress is a tactful way of saying you want her to ''stop'' flirting with you (as in, "I only want to see you ''clothed''").

They have to make do with what the local healers can provide, as well as train the locals to be their apprentices. Not to mention that not all their Middle-earth colleagues and patients are ready to accept the idea of modernized healthcare.

''[[https://ficbook.net/readfic/4403313 Cure Te Ipsum]]'' (from Latin "Heal thyself") is an AlternateUniverse ''Film/TheHobbit'' fanfic written in Russian by [[https://ficbook.net/authors/1573904 Гайя-А]].

Just after the Battle of the Five Armies, an ambulance crew from a small PresentDay provincial town gets transported to Middle-earth (along with the ambulance van). Before they even figure out what's going on, their knee-jerk reaction is to try and help the many, many wounded still lying on the battlefield, and soon enough, they find themselves immersed in the work of the hastily-constructed field hospital and bonding with the locals.

!! The fanfic contains examples of:
* ElvesVsDwarves: Even among the medics, the elves and dwarves can't help squabbling over the smallest problems.
* FantasticallyIndifferent: Downplayed. The ambulance crew adjust very quickly to getting transported to ''another world'', but that's simply due to the fact that they are overloaded with work from the moment they land there, so they can't really stay in shock for long.
* FishOutOfWater: Three medics and an ambulance driver from a Russian provincial town in Middle-earth.
* FixFic: Thanks to the timely medical care, all characters from ''The Hobbit'' survive.
* IChooseToStay: After returning home for a few weeks, all the main characters (especially Lara, having fallen in love with Bofur) are miserable and decide to return to Middle-earth.
