Dwim asked for AU drabbles for her birthday. One AU scenario that I've seen attempted several times is Boromir living past Amon Hen - perhaps by taking the Ring. However, there are two scenarios that I have never seen attempted. And you know me - they just couldn't be left undone.

Be forewarned, these are a bit angsty - but this is Dwim's birthday we're talking about, and she taught me all I know on that topic, so perhaps it's fitting. :-)
