The Air of Númenor by nineveh_uk
Fandom: The Lord of the Rings - J.R.R.Tolkien
Rating: G, CNTW
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.
