Story Summary

Slash fic with a high angst content, now complete. The curious shall read, the others will blithely remain ignorant of even the 'pairing.' Nothing new added, merely posting cleaner copies of the chapters, as I've been meaning to do for awhile now.

General Comment

Here's the really great thing about the new Featured Stories feature.  I finally get to make a comment on this story, which is one of my all-time favorites. 

I don't think there's a better (or more sensitive) treatment of Faramir and Boromir's relationship.

I've always wondered what happens after the last chapter in this story though.  Maybe an Epilogue?

General Comment

Sorry to be late replying, roh_wyn, but late or not, thank you very much for your note. I'm glad the brothers' relationship worked so well for you.

Regarding your hope for an epilogue, however, I'm afraid just can't see my way to writing one. The story is complete to me as it, and in any case I don't think I can match the epilogue for "Father and Sons"--that's sort of my last word on all possible versions of Boromir and Faramir who follow JRRT's storyline.

Thanks again for your kind words!

Playlists Featuring the Story

Slash With Care - 8 stories - Owner: Azalais
Slash is one of my indulgent pleasures - reading, I've never attempted to write it! - but so many M/E slash pairings are fraught with unlikelihood. The upside of that is that for me an author has to work really hard to make many pairings convincing - which means that some of the best slash is just brilliant writing. A list of fics that slash, with care.
Included because: One of the first LoTR slashfics I ever saw which attempted to tackle just what slash would actually mean in a M-E setting.
Stewards of Gondor: Slashvese Arc - 3 stories - Owner: Untangling Story Arcs in Dwimordene's Multi-verse
Here follow the stories dealing with Denethor, Boromir, and Faramir that belong to the slashverse arc.
Included because: Written November 2001-January 2002. Second story according to internal chronology. For good or ill, the original Boromir/Faramir slash fic, covering the events that led to Boromir being sent to Imladris.
