beatrice_otter: Elrond and a line of Elves, ready for battle (Elven warriors)
[personal profile] beatrice_otter
A few years ago I read (but neglected to bookmark) a Boromir fic that I haven't been able to find since.  It takes place with him as a younger man, and ends just as he's being sent off to Rivendell.  Middle Earth is homophobic and heteronormative, and Boromir was queer of some sort (bi? gay? don't remember).  He starts a relationship with a fellow-soldier, a guy who was older than he was but (I think) below him in rank.  They were happy together for a while, Faramir figured it out and was a bit disgusted by it but still accepted his brother.  Then Denethor figured it out, severely punished Boromir's lover, and sent Boromir off to Rivendell as a way of permanently separating them.

Anybody know this?  Can anybody point me in the right direction?

I remember this, but I don't seem to have bookmarked it. :(

I just replied on tumblr and THEN realized this link was here, but anyway... this sounds a lot like one of Isabeau of Greenlea's fics!
