Change One Thing, See What Happens

Steward and the King, The

Story Summary

What if Boromir didn't receive the dream-summons and so stayed in Minas Tirith and Faramir went north instead? PG warning: this is a hard AU, but not a dark one. Oct. 08 updates: After 2+ years of writer's block, I'm back writing. The ch. 4 draft is no longer incomplete; minor changes & tweaks in most other chapters. The completed story will be 30 chapters and an epilog. Currently, the draft is in the final stages, two chapters past the coronation. Beta suggestions are welcome.
