To Unwrite Them
1. To Unwrite Them: the Intro Page
The two 'chapters' of this 'fic' bear no relationship to each other in terms of plot. The first one plays off of an idea raised in Heirs of Isildur; the other is completely stand alone.
So what am I doing?
These two fics are an attempt to do as the collective title says: I'm trying to "unwrite" my usual way of writing about the relationship between two particular characters, which has necessitated some world-building in directions I would not ordinarily have gone. Thus my usual portrayal of/presuppositions about the northern Dúnedain and Rangers in specific have been modified so that the characters do not act in a vacuum.
Are these stories AUs then? Not by intention, so as a reviewer and reader, please treat these stories as two parts of a fictional essay, in the original sense of that term—an attempt to demonstrate that, in fact, these relationships could hold between the two characters as canonically portrayed.
