Title: Country Comforts
Fandom: Lord of the Rings
Characters: Ioreth, OC Gondorian
Prompt: BMEM09 Day 17; [livejournal.com profile] fanfic100 #14 (green)
Word Count: 579
Rating: General
Summary: It's not always easy being different. A young Ioreth has a hard day.

Author's Notes: As an added challenge to the above, I'm trying to improve my dialect skills (i.e.: spell as it's pronounced without going totally Huck Finn on my reader. Would appreciate knowing if the dialect-writing is too much, not enough, inconsistent, etc.

Multimedia: For the interested, I listened to Entre Olas by Juan Serrano to get in the mood for writing Ioreth. You might find it good to listen to while reading. I don't know if it makes sense musicologically/historically, but I imagine songs like this as being the "Country-Western" of Gondor's music scene.

Rating: Teen, for drunkenness, (non-sexual) nekkidness, and the slightest smidgen of sexual suggestion
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] just_ann_now
Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] agape4gondor. She requested a Boromir/Theodred story, though I think this scene could just as easily be friendship as slash.

"A tattoo?" Faramir asked.

"I know that they practice this art in Gondor," Elfhelm said, as he untied a small bundle and set out the shining needles and tiny pots of pigment. "Did not your own brother sport a large tattoo of a horn on his – uh, backside?"

Faramir smiled wryly. "He had it done after a late-night revel in Dol Amroth, and he rued the deed when he woke on the morrow. Though the mark was in such a place that few would ever see it."

Someone made a strange sound, halfway between a laugh and a cough, and several of the Riders were grinning broadly. No small number of people had gazed upon that famous tattoo during Boromir’s visits to Edoras.


--- from "The Long Race by the ever-creative Branwyn. Some references just beg to be expanded upon - how was I supposed to leave this one alone? (Written with Branwyn's permission.)
