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.

Playlists Featuring the Story

The Angle: Alternate Arc - 2 stories - Owner: Untangling Story Arcs in Dwimordene's Multi-verse
This set of stories portrays the relationship of Aragorn and Halbarad as "kinsmen".
This sequence turns on Halbarad's comments in "Heirs of Isildur" that if Aragorn does not choose a woman to marry, one will be provided for him. It is "alternate" because the relationship between Aragorn and Halbarad here contradicts both the slashverse and genverse portrayals, and it also relies on a change to the general culture of the Angle that isn't confined to just one small part of the population.
Included because: The chapter "Kinsmen" is the first story in this arc.
The Angle: Slashverse Arc - 3 stories - Owner: Untangling Story Arcs in Dwimordene's Multi-verse
All stories in this set portray the relationship between Aragorn and Halbarad as one of unrequited love.
Included because: The chapter "Not In Our Stars" is the slashverse rendering of Aragorn and Halbarad, after Aragorn returns from his years of errantry.
