Burdened Conscience

By December

Posted 6 September 2010


Young Faramir (17-19) spends several months at his uncle’s (training, errand, Denethor is tired of him – you decide), who is respectively 45-47.

Faramir is a quiet serious youth, too mature for his years, and has little affinity with people his own age. He loves Boromir, but they are just too different. So in his uncle, who is a cultured, kind and attentive man, he finds all the warmth and understanding so badly lacking in his life. Imrahil in turn is very fond of Faramir, and a strong masculine friendship quickly develops between them, lots of trust and companionship.

But! Each soon discovers his feelings are developing in some other directions as well (need I specify…?). Angst and bewilderment: men-love is utterly not accepted in Gondor, and anyway neither had ever desired a man before. Add the moral factor of uncle-nephew relationship. So they can’t exactly embrace their yearning…

The exact plot and ending are up to you.

What I would like to see:

Some misunderstanding. For ex., each thinks he is the only one who has said feelings. Or, each perceives that the other is in love-lust with him, but thinks his own desires are well concealed. Angsty scenes of unresolved sexual tension. Such as: while bathing alone in the sea, in the library of Imrahil’s castle, during some summer feast, in Faramir’s bedroom when Imrahil comes for a friendly chat, etc.
