I love gap-fillers and you've found one near and dear to my heart. This is a good exploration of Boromir and Faramir's love for one another. I particularly liked the flashback.

As NancyBrooke pointed out, the flashback was the stand-out scene. But the choice of first-person worked so well here. Boromir is such a practical dude; it's comforting to hear the gentler underneath part of him, and to see it in his interaction with Faramir. Very touching bit here, especially knowing that he'll never return alive. *sniff*

I liked your use of first person here as it gave a really sweet insight into Boromir, and your portrayal of the two brothers strikes me as very real and very touching. I loved the opening paragraph and your imagery there – this really set up the piece as a bit of reflection, I think. And yes, as has been said earlier, it does add a touch of poignancy reading this, knowing that Boromir won’t come back.
Very nice story Very Happy smiley face
