I've been gone for a good long while, I know, primarily because I've had nothing to say and not much energy. I've also started an instagram account, since that matches my attention and energy levels pretty much exactly these days. I also spent as much of my free, active, time as I could through September trying my first embroidery project in well over a decade. The quote is what Boromir tells Frodo re becoming a Ring Bearer, at some point in the film, and has always stuck with me. It seemed appropriate, given my headlong plunge back into Tolkien waters.

 I think I feel guilty about writing Boromir as always-a-cis-woman, even though barely anyone will read the fic and even though she doesn't have a romantic story-line going, because when I came into fandom  the tendency of gender-bending in order to write your ship safely heterosexual was just coming under critical fire and I absorbed it like a sponge.
So I can say all I want that to explore the ways in which the narrative would change, or how people would react, and whether the Fellowship is different and how and why (not), and what it means to survive and to survive when you're a woman, and what it is to be a woman who cannot slide into the sweetness of marital domesticity, and how to deal with barrenness and grief and mourning family everyone else is glad to see the back of, and...
And I can say all of that, and a lot more, and mean every scrap of it, and I still feel like I'm doing this to write het. porn and letting the side down and I should be ashamed of myself. I am, ohboy, to the extent of trying to self-justify with "at least it's not a Mary Sue self-insert" when I don't really think that's something to be ashamed of, either.
I'm ashamed and it's irritating me no end.

Apparently I'm ficcing in that fandom now.

In enormously more exciting news I have found a fic series I read, lo, going on a decade or more ago, which got taken offline and is now archived on AO3. It is The Mellon Chronicles, a monster of a thing I loved madly then and am almost afraid to read now.

Summary: porny outtake of Red Sun at Morning with which I am now bored, and also stalled, because heterosex does not interest me beyond a point. Uploading for sake of completion, and also to stop thinking about it.

This is what I was writing to keep sane during my conference/interview week of insanity in Delhi. It has no future, so might as well get posted rather than haunting my hard-drive in hopes of completion.

So not only do I not ship Aragorn/always-a-girl!Boromir, apparently I ship the latter with Eomer instead. What is my life. Eomer is a decade and half young. Awww, boytoy
