I have committed Tolkien fic.

I'm not sure that I've ever actually done that before, unless some crackfic in days of yore (i.e. Usenet). It was inspired by turning to check a couple of things in the novels having watched Fellowship and TTT* (RotK to follow shortly). I am definitely re-reading the books this winter.

The Air of Númenor by [personal profile] nineveh_uk
Fandom: The Lord of the Rings - J.R.R.Tolkien
Rating: G, CNTW
Chapters: 1
Summary: A missing scene in Minas Tirith. After Faramir tells Gandalf and Denethor of Frodo's path, Gandalf and Faramir discuss Boromir's fall and Faramir's choice.

That summary is dreadful, I admit.

*You know what? I don't like the choice that was made for Faramir. But within the decisions that were made overall for the films I'd argue that it works on those narrative terms. And anyway I don't care because I love The Two Towers for what it got right**, the Rohirrim at Helm's Deep, and above all for including Where is the horse and the rider? because I am a sucker for a doomed last stand, and for ubi sunt poetry.

**Even despite the random warg attack.
