Summary: For Faramir’s birthday Boromir decides to make him the present of for once switching places in bed, so Faramir can play the top. Faramir is thrilled, but Boromir is in for some hardships, for he had not quite realised just how difficult yielding really is…
Categories: None Characters: Boromir, Faramir
Summary: Somebody, Man or Elf, has a hopeless crush on Faramir. Lovesick and yearning to get close to the Steward at least in some way, he sneaks into Faramir’s rooms to see how the man lives. Inadvertently the admirer finds Faramir’s personal diary, where the owner’s covert desperate yearning for Aragorn is revealed.

Knowing he would never get to have Faramir by any other method, the discoverer takes the diary and resolves to blackmailing the Steward into regularly lying with him, or otherwise Aragorn would come to find the little notebook right on his bedside table. Faramir is absolutely certain the King would scorn him if he knew, so he agrees to whatever is asked of him (which is not to say he finds the process entirely devoid of pleasure...).

This may go on for quite a while – but then I would like it if somehow Aragorn began to get suspicious: the Steward has been acting strangely as of late, etc.

Summary: After Celebrian sails west, Arwen goes to Lothlorien and the twins leave Imladris to seek revenge. Elrond sinks into a deep depression and starts to fade. The healers can do nothing for him.

That's when a young, loyal subject steps in. He does the unthinkable, forging a vassal-bond between himself and his lord, giving Elrond the strength to survive.

However, there's reason no-one performs vassal-bonds. Having bound himself in this way, he can never take a mate of his own. He can never tell Elrond of this one-sided bond, for Elrond would feel dreadfully guilty about it, and the vassal-bond demands that he do everything in his power to serve/please the lord to whom he is bound.

What happens when this elf falls in love with another? One whom he must always watch from afar but can never have?

Lots of angst, secrecy, misconstruction and conflict. Bonus points for using a minor character such as Melpomaen, Lindir, Saelbeth or Silinde. Bonus points for a happy ending!

Summary: A boromirlives! challenge. Returning to Minas Tirith as the new Steward, Boromir confides his hopeless infatuation with the King in his ever-understanding little brother. Faramir for his part is also badly in love with Aragorn – but since Boromir called it first, and generally is the older brother – Faramir keeps it shut. And so he helps Boromir, first cautiously finding out whether Aragorn could be interested, then coming up with a strategy for seducing him, etc. – all of which eventually leads to Boromir’s desired result… But! Faramir of course is torn and suffering – and what if at some point Aragorn perceives that?

Summary: Young Faramir (17-19) spends several months at his uncle’s (training, errand, Denethor is tired of him – you decide), who is respectively 45-47.

Faramir is a quiet serious youth, too mature for his years, and has little affinity with people his own age. He loves Boromir, but they are just too different. So in his uncle, who is a cultured, kind and attentive man, he finds all the warmth and understanding so badly lacking in his life. Imrahil in turn is very fond of Faramir, and a strong masculine friendship quickly develops between them, lots of trust and companionship.

But! Each soon discovers his feelings are developing in some other directions as well (need I specify…?). Angst and bewilderment: men-love is utterly not accepted in Gondor, and anyway neither had ever desired a man before. Add the moral factor of uncle-nephew relationship. So they can’t exactly embrace their yearning…

The exact plot and ending are up to you.

What I would like to see:
Some misunderstanding. For ex., each thinks he is the only one who has said feelings. Or, each perceives that the other is in love-lust with him, but thinks his own desires are well concealed.
Angsty scenes of unresolved sexual tension. Such as: while bathing alone in the sea, in the library of Imrahil’s castle, during some summer feast, in Faramir’s bedroom when Imrahil comes for a friendly chat, etc.

Summary: Write a tale based on the Flyleaf song, "Cassie." It should have character death, or mention of it.

Summary: Of all the hundreds of pairings out there, this is one I have only ever seen once, but believe could be a lot of fun. The Lady of Imladris and the famous Glorfindel, balrog slayer of Gondolin. If anyone agrees with me, give it a go! :) It can, of course, be any rating required, though I would personally prefer it to have a real story. Have fun!

Summary: Write about a place in Middle-earth or Earth you would like to either go yourself or put a character. It can be about anything and anyone, but make sure it's during the Christmas or Yule holiday.

Summary: This was part of a post in the forum of another LOTR site: If, Denethor and Boromir had somehow survived the War of the Ring, what would have happened? With Denethor still Steward and not Faramir, will there be civil war between him and Aragorn? If so, which side will the lords of Gondor, including Boromir, Faramir, and Imrahil, be on? A fascinating what-if... So, I just thought I'd share that little plotbunny. Do with it what you will.

Summary: Let’s explore this trope: a love potion is accidentally drunk by the people it was not intended for. Please make this an angsty and dramatic/tragic story, full of remorse, jealousy, wild unconquerable passion and desperate struggling against temptation. Perhaps for at least one of the lovers this relationship would mean having to be unfaithful to their spouse, or endanger their position to the point of making them a complete social outcast, or even death. But the magical love endures everything…

Summary: It can be about anything, with any characters from LotR, but it has to have in it somewhere a song from either Red Dwarf or Monty Python. It'll be good to see what people come up with :)

Summary: Faramir is mortally wounded or otherwise severely ill, and everyone is already mourning him. Thinking he has nothing to lose, the Steward finally confesses to the King a long concealed secret. Perhaps, his love for Aragorn – perhaps, something else. But, miraculously, he lives! However, Faramir is not sure how exactly he is going to live, given what he has told his lord…

Summary: We all know that Legolas promised to visit the caves of Helm's Deep with Gimli. Well, I want to know what happened there. Anything goes. Slash is accepted, even encouraged. :)

Summary: One of the things that annoyed me about the LOTR movies was that they couldn't put everything from the books into the scripts—also that the movies were not entirely true to the books, but that's another age-long rant. The challenge is to take a scene that was either omitted/changed in the movies (e.g. Arwen in the place of Glorfindel, Tom Bombadil) or not acted out in the original texts (e.g. the parting of Elrond and Arwen) from the book and put it in its place in the movies. It MUST follow canon, though you can write it in screenplay format if you wish. Any characters, any ratings, you know the drill.

Summary:

Pity may have kept Bilbo from killing Gollum, but not everyone shares that compassion. Gollum died after leading the hobbits into Shelob's lair but before he bit the Ring off Frodo's hand.

What happens when Frodo decides to keep the Ring?

1. One-Shot Story (option one): Sam won't accept Frodo's decision. They've gone too far to fail now. Will he fight Frodo to destroy the ring himself? If he gets the Ring, will he be able to succeed where his friend failed?

2. One-Shot Story (option two): How does Gollum die? Who kills him and why? Was it Frodo? Did he finally go mad and kill the wretch so he'd stop trying to take the Ring? Did Sam, who knew the truth about Gollum's desire for the Ring, feel it was the only way to protect Frodo? Perhaps Sauron's servant (who sent him on an errand of mischief) discovered he failed and punished him for it?

Maybe Gollum wandered to the west side of the mountains in search of food and water or on another errand. Did Faramir find him wandering alone and assume he'd killed the two hobbits? Was it Legolas, who was angered by the shame Gollum brought to the woodland elves by escaping their dungeons? Or was he killed by someone completely unexpected?

3. Short Story: As Isildur's fate was drastically effected for the worse, so is Frodo's. What happens to the Hobbit? Describe everything from the moment he keeps the Ring until it arrives in Sauron's possession.

4. Novel-length Story: Frodo finds himself taken captive by Sauron's armies. Now the Dark Lord has his Precious back. What havoc does the hobbit's failure cause for Middle Earth's people? How does the land change in nature and civilization? How does the Ring get recaptured and destroyed?

For "extra credit", don't add Original Characters.

5. Other Inspiration: Tell another story inspired by and related to the basis of this challenge.

Summary: Which one of the character tell a story or something that happened in he/she past. Might something had happened and the character start to tell his tale. AU is fine by me. OOC if needed as well. Have fun in the writing, it is all that matters.

Summary: Faramir is in a relationship with one of the Elven twins – problem is, he can’t figure out with which one… The brothers are entirely alike in looks, voice and bearing, and he just cannot tell them apart. Perhaps, there is some small detail, like one of the Elves having an intimate piercing, or a tattoo done in special ink that only becomes visible when, you know… So Faramir would realise his mistake only when things already get pretty far down the road to bliss. The Steward is annoyed and perplexed, because he wants to be serious, and considers himself in love – but can he truly be in love when he cannot even properly identify the object of his passion…? He fails to understand the brothers’ motives either. Maybe they are frivolous about the whole thing and are just having fun taking turns jumping into his bed – or maybe they are actually having a competition over him, who can tell? Make it light and funny, or seriously angsty – up to you.

Summary: Write a story featuring Imladris' plumbing prominently. Because it has been asked, "Does Imladris have plumbing?"

Summary: Oh, Valar! There is a Dragon in the White Mountains! Hardly had the realm of Gondor had time to recover after the Great War, when this new bane came out of the blue. This particular Dragon, like most others, does not find it enough to simply burn down villages, eat the villagers and hoard treasure in his lair. What he loves most of all is malicious mischief for its own sake – so when a host of brave knights (some of whom all of us are well acquainted with) comes to slay him, he wants to have a bit of fun and instead of simply frying the foolish men, casts some wicked spells on them. You can go for classics, with people forgetting who they are and running around until they end up in strange relationships – or go ahead and think up something entirely different.

Summary: Precisely as the title says. A wee Gimli, perhaps? Tiny Thorin? Toddling Oin and Gloin? Whatever the length, make it cute and fun.
