Summary: Hello everyone :D Right. I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks this but I believe that the Faramir and Éowyn romance is one of the best and the cutest. However there just aren't enough fics out there about these two together. So, my challenge to you is, write a story (of whatever length and genre, although I do like a bit of fluff) about Faramir and Éowyn together. It could be their married life, it could be when they were still getting to know each other in the Houses of Healing, ANYTHING! :D I'd love to see what you come up with, and I will review all entries! NB: Graphic sex scenes are NOT a necessity! They shouldn't be the main focus of the story.

Summary: The Steward goes to the Wood of Greenleaves on a diplomatic mission to discuss the details of the Elven settlement that King Thranduil’s son wants to set up in Ithilien. Much as Faramir is fascinated by the Fair Folk, he knows little of them and is much worried their ways may be so different from those of Men, that it will be difficult for the two peoples to comfortably coexist. Sensing his unease, the receiving side (which may include Prince Legolas himself, if you like) eagerly sets to eliminating all gaps in Faramir’s knowledge of the Elven life-style.

Summary: What would happen if Frodo got to Mount Doom but didn't get the chance to throw the ring in? E.G.: a Nazgûl kills him and Sam, Gollum kills them, Mount Doom is surrounded by orcs and they're forced to give up the ring to them (OK bad one but still...). You can include AU, graphic sex, anything that blows your skirt up! Just please! No slash!

Summary: One night, Steward Faramir wakes up with a jolt to find himself tied to his own bed: blindfolded, gagged, naked and – oh, Valar! – in the company of another man. Faramir’s initial indignation and anger are soon replaced by fear, once he understands this is no silly joke and the stranger has quite serious purposes – and Faramir can neither free himself nor call for help. However, once he stops struggling, he realises his guest has no intention of hurting him, and is in fact being rather gentle and patient. So, given his lack of options, Faramir cooperates, and actually quite enjoys himself… But he has not an inkling who his lover is – even when the scarf from his mouth is removed to let them kiss and he begs for a name, the stranger gives no reply. Faramir cannot even tell whether it is Man or Elf. He has a smooth face, but so do many Men in Minas Tirith (now, let us assume that Aragorn, since Professor T had never said otherwise, does shave at least once in a while – so technically it could be him also). Faramir never gets another visit – but has to admit that he would actually like to. So here is the mystery part: he wants to find out who it was he had shared his bed with, and ask him some questions and possibly, well, do some things. I would like there to be some good suspense, preferably three likely candidates, each with some points in favour of him being Faramir’s nightly guest – please keep us guessing until the very end. And, well, how things develop after the discovery is up to you.

Summary: The wall separating Boromir’s and Faramir’s bedrooms is not as thick as Boromir would have liked. His little brother has a rather eventful personal life, constantly shagging someone, or perhaps getting shagged – Boromir would rather not know. Usually the big brother grins and bears it. But one night, when all the moans, yelps, screams of “faster, faster!” and “fuck me hard, Captain Faramir!” won’t stop even after three in the morning, Boromir decides he has had enough. But as the door to Faramir’s bedroom is opened after Boromir’s furious banging, the heir’s ire abates a little – for he is greeted by the sight of his brother in full glory: unclothed, blushed and sweaty, raven hair in a mess, and with an impressive arousal to finish the picture. Moreover, behind him on the bed Boromir can see two young cadets, fresh but not innocent at all... Still, Boromir tries shouting – but Faramir is only grinning broadly in return. Yes, he already has an idea how to solve this conflict of interest…

Summary: All Gondorian noblemen learn the High Tongue, at least the basics. But the Steward’s sons should know it well, so a real Elf is hired as a tutor. He is the first of the Fair Folk to be seen in Gondor for ages, and attracts lots of attention – Faramir in particular finds him entirely fascinating… Naturally, the young lord ends up getting a bit more than the education his father is paying for. Boromir finds out and does not approve… Why exactly does he not approve? Mm, you decide.

Summary: Liriel of Lothlorien is Haldir's sister and has been the secret lover of Prince Legolas for years. She is Arwen's closest female friend and an ex-girlfriend (not sexual!) of one of Arwen's brothers. What happens when Liriel arrives for the Council of Elrond as Legolas' new bride? I'd love to see the interplay between Haldir and Legolas over the very quick wedding, and how you persuade Gimli that it's a good idea to have another Elf in the party. How do you convince Boromir that a female elf can be a warrior? Must have the couple trying to sneak away for quiet moments but always being interrupted - and I'd love to see someone explaining Elven sex to the hobbits! I'd also suggest arguments between the young couple where Liriel makes it plain to all and sundry that she has a will and a mind of her own. I'm also wondering how things change if someone manages to heal Theoden's son? If you write as just LOTR, great. Cross-over options preferred would be Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Harry Potter.

Summary: Eowyn is a little tired of Faramir always being so careful and gentle in bed. She has told him many a time, but, well, is there any use talking to men? So she decides to take some action, and, knowing his er, interest in young men, decides to play a little game of once again pretending to be a lad. Well, she gets a little more than she had expected.

Summary: Young Faramir has his first crush – no, not on Boromir. He writes a letter with a confession, but has doubts over its content, and asks his older brother for second opinion. As Boromir listens to Faramir’s impassioned reading, he realises with a shock that he would like his little brother to express these feelings for him – but is a little too stunned by this sudden revelation to actually voice it just now. So time goes by, and an elated and unsuspecting Faramir keeps Boromir posted re the rapid developments in his first love affair. Well, what will Boromir’s internal struggle come to? Will he ever dare voice his feelings? And if he does, what will come out of it? Faramir is, after all, already in love…

Summary: Faramir discovers his brother is having an affair with Queen Arwen. What is Faramir to do? The new Steward of Gondor Boromir II and Queen Arwen Undomiel have a thing. Boromir and Arwen? Yes. Whoever told you he is not her type? Of course he is. He is gorgeous and irresistible. He just is. And he makes her happy in bed. So there. No further discussion on this point. Where does Faramir fit into the plot? Faramir is the only one who knows about this relationship. Maybe he knew about it before it had even turned into a full-blown affair, or maybe he found out some time later – up to you. Question is, what is he going to do? He has his duty to his king, his duty to his brother, to his queen, to the state, to the good people of Gondor. Perhaps, although this is facultative, he himself has feeling for one of the parties involved…

Summary: Faramir gets his hands on a magic ring. Possibly as a present from Mithrandir. At first he does not know it is enchanted, but soon discovers it gives him some special power: hearing another’s thoughts, seeing the dreams other people dream at night – or, maybe, when he puts it on, takes a quill into his hand and pronounces a person’s name, his hand will write out the desires of that person. Whichever, really – with the help of this ring he should inadvertently come to learn of another man harbouring a secret passion for him – Boromir is the first to come to my mind, but feel free to choose someone else. Point is, Faramir is, for one, uncertain of the ring’s reliability, second, considers this method rather amoral. So what does he do with this questionable knowledge?

Summary: PWP involving Faramir, Aragorn, and bathing in Anduin on a summer night. One of them is bathing – the other watching secretly. Or not so secretly, as it turns out when he is caught.

Summary: Aragorn wants to have a huge mirror installed into their chamber right alongside the bed, so that he and Faramir can see how they make love to each other. The King is secretly hoping it would help bring out Faramir’s wilder side, ridding the Steward of his annoying modesty and inhibitions. Faramir is not very keen on the idea – but once the mirror is actually there…

Summary: When Boromir returns from the Ring Quest, the brothers finally decide to be a little bold, and each discovers his long-hidden passion for the other is fully reciprocated.

But! Neither has ever been with a man before, and Boromir, being the caring protective brother, gets himself totally convinced that he will horribly hurt Faramir if they actually try to have full-blown sex. So for quite some time they stick to a superficial light-duty routine, Boromir resolutely defying all of Faramir’s attempts to make him reconsider.

Eventually Faramir gets so frustrated (and sex-depraved), that he shares his plight with Aragorn, who is by then a close friend of both brothers, and is well aware that they have a thing.

Now, Aragorn, who is very experienced, comes up with a practical solution. He will come to the brothers’ bedroom, and demonstrate to Boromir that Faramir does not get harmed by being taken.

Perhaps this could develop into a three-some…

Summary: Faramir is annoyed by Aragorn’s inability to comprehend why it bothers him so much that the King shares his bed with other men besides Faramir. Yes, Aragorn grew up with the Elves, whose ways are freer – but Faramir is no Elf. And the Steward decides to give Aragorn a dose of his own medicine by spending a night with – you decide who. In the end I would like one of them to see the other’s point – but whether it is Aragorn or Faramir who changes his views is up to you.

Summary: Young Faramir takes refuge in the Golden Wood. Young Faramir (make him as young as 10 or 11 if you like), being chased by Orcs, or fleeing from abuse at home, eventually finds himself on the outskirts of Lothlorien. He is captured by the vigilant Elven guards (who are not particularly fond of strangers, as we remember…) and brought for questioning to the Lord and Lady of the Wood. But Galadriel sees he is but a frightened unfortunate boy, and takes pity on him. She places him under her protection, and he stays in Lorien in a position of something like her page. So Faramir’s youth passes with the Elves, he learns their tongue, their ways and their arts, and grows to fit in quite well. By the time he is around 16-18, he also grows to be very fair, alluring and provocatively unspoilt – and the Lady does not fail to notice that… So she thinks that to make his education complete, she ought to teach him some other things besides walking the tight-rope and shooting a squirrel in the eye. The lessons turn out so enjoyable for both parties, that Faramir soon turns into her habitual lover. Now, Celeborn… He finds it all very amusing for a while, and does not begrudge his wife her current entertainment: Galadriel is an eccentric woman, after all, and this mortal boy she has selected for a sex-toy is, admittedly, a commendable choice. But at some point the Elven-lord begins to get annoyed and even jealous (of whom…?) – and decides to take action. The term ‘action’, of course, has a multitude of meanings… Where it all goes from there is entirely up to you. Bonus points for having each part of the story presented from one of the three character’s POV, giving different perspectives on the situation – although of course I’d be more than thrilled to get a classical third-person narration as well.

Summary: Steward Faramir inadvertently trespasses on Beorn’s lands. Faramir is en route to Dale on a diplomatic mission, but some mishap gets him off the course, he loses his companions, his horse, and ends up wandering into Beorn’s homestead. Now, that would obviously not be the Beorn Bilbo had met, but rather his grandson. Well, no difference: like father like son, etc. Suspicious, unfriendly, gruff, proud and independent, dark-haired, very tall and very strong – you get the picture. Faramir would not get a very warm welcome – perhaps Beorn’s dogs would chew him up a bit, or even the owner himself would cuff him a couple of times before deciding to give the strange visitor a chance to explain himself. A notch more hospitable this time, Beorn offers the Gondorian Steward to have some rest after the long road, and also heal his new cuts and bruises. After a couple of days, when the men get a little used to each other, Faramir begins to suspect Beorn’s reserved disposition is simply the other side of his loneliness and distrust. Well, I suppose it is understandable where things would go from there… One smutty little detail before I wrap this up. Beorn is tall. Very tall. Like, er, you know what I’m hinting at…

Summary: Playing a game of truth-or-dare, young Boromir and Faramir end up daring each other to go see what’s in that high tower where their father seems to spend so many nights. They discover the palanthir. Spurred on by each other’s teasing remarks and generally intrigued, they look into it together. Well, guess what, it shows them making love to each other – something neither had even thought of before. Of course there is shock and bewilderment, and awkward laughter – but afterwards each finds the images to be permanently stuck in his head…

Summary: Faramir and Eowyn are experimenting with spicing up their intimate life. After some milder things, Faramir dares confess his fantasy of bringing a third party into their marital bed. To his delight and rather strong surprise, his wife is not insulted at all, but greets the idea with such enthusiasm that even promises to arrange everything herself. Imagine the degree Faramir’s surprise reaches when she brings along not another Rohirrim lady, like he had assumed by default that she would – but, as you have guessed, another man. But, well, much as he is bewildered, Faramir cannot call it off, for she had accepted his desire to lie with two women simultaneously – he has to play fair… It can’t be any of their blood relatives, but any other Man – or Elf – is fine.

Summary: After struggling for a year, Aragorn and Faramir eventually break up, Aragorn having found it all a little too complicated, given Faramir’s well-known issues. But then, as the King witnesses his ex-lover develop a new, and obviously wholesome and happy relationship with someone else, he begins to have second thoughts…
