Nuzgûl Hutch

Lord of Men, Lord of Elves

Challenge Details

For two characters coming from such radically different backgrounds, Faramir and Elrond actually have a lot in common:

* Elrond lost both of his parents when they sailed to Valinor, and his brother when Elros chose mortality. Faramir lost his mother at a young age, and his brother and father in the Ring War.

* Both are lore-masters.

* Both are acquainted with Mithrandir.

* Faramir leads a corps of rangers fighting orcs. Elrond's sons have been fighting with a corps of rangers against the orcs.

* Both had the wisdom to know the Ring must be destroyed.

So just what would they have talked about when they met after the Ring War? Elrond surely has some good advice for Faramir to help him move beyond the pain the War had caused him. What did Faramir have to offer Elrond (some sort of reconciliation with Pippin? wisdom concerning Arwen's choice?)

Happy (belated) birthdays Flick and Nic! Flick asked for a drabble about someone remembering Boromir and Nic asked for a drabble about Faramir and Elrond. I sort of combined the two and added an extra 2,613 words or so ;-) 9th July 04 - a second draft posted as chapter 1. Mostly editing but some new material. The first draft has been left as chapter 2 for comparison purposes.
