    Think of an actual stew. Then the opposite to what was in that stew.
    In both cases a hobbit was largely responsible

    The obvious answer would be rabbit stew, except that you are saying that there are multiple steps and that the answer is the opposite of what should be in the stew. So how about this:

    dwarf and tater stew

    No taters in Sam's rabbit stew, and Thorin & Co. never made it into Bill, Tom and Bert's stew.

    I like that last one

    However the first thing is the correct first step
    Now think about a "stew" with no rabbit

    C'mon. Who is not a tame rabbit?

    Must be Bilbo, but I think the honor should go to Vilnas since I did none of the work.

    BTW, welcome back Vilnas...long vacation...

    I see.
    Dragon stew, eh?

    The Wicked Witch of the Westmarch?

    Oh wait, wrong hallucination...

    The drowning of Isengard maybe?

    Liquidation can mean realizing assets of one's estate or business - so how about Bilbo's Farewell Party? he gave Bag End to Frodo and gave away almost all his possessions to his neighbours, friends and family (including The Ring!)

    Hmmm, Frodo then selling Bag End to the Sackville-Baggins before leaving the Shire.

    A long time indeed. Very glad to see you are still here and active. I have greatly missed the riddling with you.

    Once again, so close.
    In fact, both answers you have submitted are so close that I will pass on the riddle stick.
    But to give you a shot at getting more than close...peruse the end of The Hobbit where Bilbo and Gandalf finally get back to Hobbiton.

    Jolly good of you

    Actually my very old and battered paper-back copy of The Hobbit fell apart when I was tidying up my books so I binned it - you've just given me a great reason to go out and buy a nice expensive hard-back

    Anyway, here's the next one: internecine

    Probably being too literal here: Kinstrife of Gondor? Kinslaying of Aqualonde?

    internecine

    I´m thinking about "something destructive to both sides" or like that.
    the first thing that popped up in my mind was the ?mûmak? (mûmakil singular form?) going bananas in Ithilien, trampling the Gondorian rangers and the Haradrim alike.

    Could be but not what I had in mind.

    Spot on, and you got both answers that I would have accepted, you're up

    smiler (as in one who smiles)
    add one part synonymy with one part etymology to get the answer

    How about a hole dweller as in a Hobbit.
    Some of them live in smials.

    Nice! but you are using homonymy instead of synonymy for the first part of the answer
