From the Other River Bank ~ by Dwimordene

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.

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.

Why This Story?

One of the first LoTR slashfics I ever saw which attempted to tackle just what slash would actually mean in a M-E setting.
