Author's notes: This started as a bridge for a slightly longer piece (which I may post later), but worked itself into a nice stand-alone drabble.



Aragorn knew of the tavern and Boromir's remembrance. He'd be a poor king if he didn't--and an even poorer Lord to his fallen captain.

The first year, he'd been newly crowned, and his kingdom still chaotic.

The second year, Arwen was with her father, so he grieved alone. He drank first to remember and then to forget--and that was not something he wished to share.

This year, though--he owes it to his men, to himself, but especially to Boromir. So he is here, in the shadows, waiting for the right moment. And he is no longer afraid.

Wonderful image, especially calls to mind his appearance in the Prancing Pony. He is very good at skulking, will he come out and play?

I decided to make a recipe from the chocolate book you sent for the dreaded Halloween party with my ex and Barbie. At least I will eat well! *g*

He drank first to remember and then to forget...

I think I heard this is a song somewhere *grin*

Absolutely lovely, as always! The resonances of a relationship even after one is gone...

Loved it, and agree with [livejournal.com profile] seleneheart that it linked beautifully with the scene in the Prancing Pony. And, no matter what Others have said elsewhere in the journal ;), there can never be too much maundering over... um.. remembering... Boromir.

I'm sure the men will be happy to have him join them.

I like the idea that he's afraid to show his grief - to show any sign of weekness in front of his people.
