Oh my god. I literally spent an entire month writing this fic. A whole month. I don't know how this happened. I saw the prompt and I was like, oh, this is fun to write! And I started outlining and it became three parts. Then I started writing and it's four parts. And.
Yeah, in short, it's pretty much a monster. Beta'd by halfthewords, the best of bunnies, who valiantly paddled through nearly thirty thousand words because I asked her to. I subtitle this fic: A Treatise on Homophobia (and Gender Relations) in a War-torn Country.
A Captain’s Duty
Characters/Pairing: Aragorn/Boromir, mentions of Aragorn/Halbarad, Aragorn/Arwen, and unrequited Boromir->Théodred. Cameos by the rest of the Fellowship.
Disclaimer: Recognisable characters are the property of Professor Tolkien, the Tolkien estates, and New Line Cinemas. I’m just borrowing them for my inferior writings.
Summary: Boromir knows Gondor’s ways. No matter how it might break him to follow, he will, for the Captain knows his duties.
Notes: Written for this prompt on hobbit_kink about homophobia in Gondor and Boromir having had a one-night stand with Aragorn long ago.
Warnings: Internalised homophobia, conflict, massive angst, sex, canon character death.
