The Devil's Favorite Sin

Title: The Devil's Favorite Sin
Author: Kris
Word count: 100
Characters/Pairing: Aragorn, Boromir
Rating: G
Disclaimer: don't own 'em, not for profit
Work: LOTR
Notes: For the "Humility" challenge. This was sparked by two comments to my drabble "The Future Hangs By a Thread," about who was more arrogant, Book!Aragorn or Movie!Aragorn, and it occurred to me that Aragorn's actions spoke more of arrogance than humility. The title is taken from a line of Robert Stouthey's poem "The Devil's Walk": "The Devil's favorite sin is pride that apes humility."
