Disclaimer: Tolkien owns the characters and their world, fandom owns the feelings.
Secrets, half-truths, demurrals… it had all been a great game. Not since Theodred's heart was broken aged barely seventeen had he so much wanted to tell the truth to another soul. But he couldn’t… could he?
Games and protestations, bluff good-fellowship, because… we’re all lads together here… How Boromir had studied to play those games. Never letting them get too near, or go too far… now he wanted to throw himself down, bare his neck to another... metaphorically anyway...
Secret places, points of study, passages learnt by heart – remembered at leisure… their bodies warrior-shod, now sundered far from one another.
