Multimedia Note: Sorta kinda inspired by PFR's song Wonder Why (lyrics). This doesn't exactly evoke the mood I'd want while reading this piece, but the lyrics definitely captures Maedhros's character as I see it - at least at this late date.

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.)
