Or brushed a royal gown

Lord of the Rings, Frodo/Sam. 2,320 words, implied sexual content. Post-quest genderswap, always!a!girl!Frodo. Fashion. When Frodo came up, the gown and stays and petticoats and jewels were already spread on her bed, sparkling and strange, and somehow cruel.

As if I breathed superior air, Or brushed a royal gown;
title: (bind you with love that is) graceful and green as a stem, 7-9/9
pairing: non-explicit Sam/Frodo – either fairly chaste slash or heavily romantic gen
wordcount(total): 22, 664
rating: pg

An au of the final chapters of RotK. Crack premise: if it were possible for Sam to take up the burden of Frodo's pain, and allow his beloved master to be free. Tolkien splits his ending evenly between comedy and tragedy, with Sam getting all of the one and Frodo getting all of the other. Sam has marriage and children and riches, the narrative of celebration, of life ascendant. Frodo has the tragic side: death, loss, all the things that never get better, and at last his martyr's end. But a different end to the story could be managed, if Sam and Frodo were to share both the joy and the sorrow of their victory and their adventure. drama, angst, hurt/comfort. thanks and endearments to my beta, [livejournal.com profile] lozlan.
