December 5 - 20 gay Gondorians

4. Gaiety in Gondor - by Raksha



"Yes, my lord?"

"Why are those men dancing together in such  a…brazen…manner?"

"My lord, you seemed disappointed by the somber manner of most of  our more
usual type of gentlemen.  You requested gaiety.  I was able  to find only 20
suitable gay Gondorians;  after the sad losses of the  War."

"Ah.  Faramir; when I spoke of gay Gondorians, I meant  Gondorian folk of a
lively and happy demeanor."

"Oh…Forgive my error, sire."

"Faramir, I am not your father, no need for contrition."

"Thank you, my lord.  At least they do dance in a lively  manner, do they not?"

"A bit too lively.  I would prefer that they left such behavior  in the field;
but I shall not spoil the festivities…Faramir, is that big Swan  Knight
making eyes at me?"

"It seems so, my lord; but 'tis surely in jest.  That is  Pongohil, my third
cousin twice removed.  He flirts with everyone over the  age of fourteen.  I
could stand in front of you if you are uncomfortable,  and let him know that his
attentions are unwelcome."

"No.  I will not hide.  Let us pray though, that the  knight does not so flirt
with Eomer.  Your uncle would surely be angered if  one of his knights was
harmed at my court."

"Do not worry, my lord.  I believe he now bestows his glance on  Legolas."

"Make him stop!  Gimli will kill him!  Faramir, go dance with the man, or

"I shall dance by him, with Eowyn."

"Hasten!  Gimli begins to grip his axe-handle!"

"But hearken, sire!  Gimli has set down his axe.  He and  Legolas are joining
the dancers!"  

"That is good!  They understand true gaiety..."

"Truly?  An Elf and a Dwarf?  Is it  possible?"

"I meant that they understood the spirit of revelry, Faramir."

"Ah.  Of course, sire."
