Lives in Nutshells: 1. Upon This Hither Shore

fliewatuet asked for a drabble about pre-Ring war Aragorn.




They say water draws Elves. Mayhap also the elven-reared, for there he sits—the foundling washed up on mortal shores.

The stone skips twice, then sinks. Halbarad tsks. "Throw a round?" he asks when the other turns. Aragorn considers, then nods.

Upon the riverbank they stand, casting stones in silence awhile. "You're often here," Halbarad says. Aragorn shrugs.

"I was born between these rivers—" his last stone sinks "—but they speak nothing to me."

The final stone skips thrice. "Silly game," Halbarad complains. A beat, then: "Again, tomorrow?"

Reflections waver in the water.

"Aye, tomorrow," Aragorn agrees. And then smiles.

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?

For Chapter 9, New Day Dawning. Dwim finally succumbed to the temptation to write requited Aragorn/Halbarad slash; the result is short and (bitter)sweet.
