Story Summary

The birth of Boromir, as witnessed and reported by a bonds-woman of Lady Finduilas. Birth involves many customs and superstitions; a vernacular report of the events and omens that surrounded Boromir's birth. Inspired by Tay's suggestion that Boromir 'is the poster-boy for Leo' and by the song 'When I Go' by the late Dave Carter, whose birthday also coincided with the Persied meteor shower, around the 12th and 13th August.
