Darkness will not Endure
« on: April 08, 2016, 04:22:38 PM »
Faramir
36 • Destined to marry Éowyn • Man
Application


Say hello to Faramir, Captain of the Ithilien Rangers and full-time cinnamon roll.

Beginning life as a gentle, imaginative child he has grown into an equally gentle, noble and fair-minded man.  Many of Faramir’s traits are befitting a Captain; he is kind, selfless, loyal, quietly courageous, unwavering and decisive.  A fair and merciful leader, talented in combat and strategic planning, his morals are what guide him, helping Faramir make sense of the world and guarantee that his word is his bond.  This could very well be the reason he inspires the confidence and admiration of his men.

It’s just a pity that he occasionally finds himself crippled by feelings of low self-worth.  His desire to please his father, to earn his love and respect, is dangerous in that it alone can move him to acting against his better judgement.

A sensitive creature, Faramir harbours a great love of lore, history and music and, despite being a Ranger, he cares little for war and arms.  To him, it is a means to an end, and one that is unfortunately necessary.  Having no desire for glory, he will not risk his life – or the lives of his men – without due cause.

Naturally the son of the Steward can be found easily in Gondor, either in Minas Tirith or elsewhere.

There is no room for romantic plotting with Faramir, sorry ladies!  He is destined to marry Éowyn after the War of the Ring and, to my mind, he does not know love before this.  Truth be told he is too busy focusing on his family – on his brother, on whom his sun rises and sets, and his polluted, distant father – to cast a lingering eye on any womenfolk.  His honourable nature will keep him from any short-lived or salacious interactions.

Time to toss characters at you (almost all of which won't really meet Faramir until close to the end of the War of the Ring but we can still plan (and maybe thread that far?) >.>)

Eomer & Faramir: Oh, there is so much razzing in my head on the part of Eomer towards his sister's suitor and I can totally see Eomer coming up with obscure (or non-existent) Rohirrim courting rituals and generally be the overprotective, scary big brother that not-so secretly actually approves. But after that, I can see the two of becoming pretty good friends.

Celeborn & Faramir: I can honestly see these two getting on pretty well and in the book Cel and Galady accompany Arwen & Co to Minas Tirith for the wedding and they can meet then.

Sam & Faramir: These two likely have an interesting relationship since they don't exactly meet in the best circumstances and yet I can see Sam coming to admire Faramir.

Elrond & Faramir: I don't know if Faramir has ever gone to Rivendell before but even if he hadn't, Elrond comes to Minas Tirith with Arwen and would totally be interested in this Man that knows so much.

I also have a few other Elves (as you well know) from Rivendell that could conceivably follow Elrond to Minas Tirith and a Ranger around in the LOTR. Anardil, my Gondorian noble, could be alive at the same time as Faramir (as a super old dude and Faramir as a young boy).

Ahh, we have so many wonderful plotting opportunities Becca! <3  We can absolutely thread, however late in the war these plots may take place – between the books and the movies I have no excuse for not having a fair grasp of Faramir’s personal development. ~

Éomer & Faramir

THIS.  I would love to see Éomer come up with all manner of existent and non-existent courtship rituals for Faramir – ever earnest and eager to please you know the Ranger will go through with them whatever his doubts!  In the long run, I would love to see these two form a close friendship.  Following the War of the Ring, Faramir has lost his entire family and the death of his brother is most keenly felt, making Éowyn and Éomer his newfound kin.  Perhaps we could start off with a thread based on your suggestion?  Some fun and amusement with a ritual?  I don’t know if you need help coming up with something but, if you do, I recall my German housemate telling me of a tradition that sees men cutting down birch trees, decorating them with ribbons and hearts, then setting them outside their darling’s door or window.  Perhaps we could do some spin on this?  That being said, I’m game for anything and Faramir is so gentle and deeply in love he’ll embrace Rohirric traditions.  He’s at Éomer’s mercy! :D

Celeborn & Faramir

I would love for them to meet and I imagine they would get along swimmingly!  I wonder if this could be a group thread, between Celeborn, Galadriel, Faramir and Éowyn (Raven is in the process of apping her).  Something set during the feasting that follows the ceremony, which could then splinter off into some one-on-one threads.  Hmm.  What do you think?

Sam & Faramir

Samwise Gamgee is love. <3  Again, a possible group thread with Frodo, Samwise and Faramir?  Silence could even join us with Sméagol.  In any case, I can’t help but think of this exchange from The Two Towers:

Quote
Sam:  Captain Faramir, you have shown your quality, sir – the very highest.
Faramir:  The Shire must truly be a great realm, Master Gamgee, where gardeners are held in high honour.

They have a difficult start, to be sure, but I would love to see them develop a mutual respect and understanding. ~

Elrond & Faramir

I have it in my head that Faramir hasn’t actually travelled outside of Gondor prior to the War of the Ring.  For being learned, through books and lore, he actually has little hands-on experience of the world outside the borders he defends.  As you say though, they can meet whenever Elrond travels to Minas Tirith.  Faramir is ever eager to learn – and is very fond of Gandalf – so I can imagine these two having very long, interesting conversations.

-

There are other character choices but I say we start off we these for now.  I’m glad for all these options, we really don’t get to write together nearly enough! *snugs*

Eomer & Faramir: Yes, this should totally be the first thread that we should do (at least between these two) since I think Eomer will need something light-hearted to do after the War. And I'm sure I can come up with some...fun ideas *Eomer grins rather evilly*

Celeborn & Faramir: I'm fine with doing a group thread that splits up if everyone else is. I can ask Kyla if she wants to do it? But even if that doesn't work, we can still totally thread these two.

Sam & Faramir: I think perhaps with these two, maybe their very first meeting would be a good place, group thread or no.

Elrond & Faramir: Yes, I can see him not leaving Gondor. And Elrond doesn't really go anywhere besides Elven realms, or maybe Isengard before Saruman turns evil. But long, intriguing conversations are a must.

Sorry for taking so long to respond, Becca! *snugs*

Éomer & Faramir

Ehehee, brilliant, I'm looking forward to it. :D  Would you mind starting this thread?

Celeborn & Faramir

Yes please, ask Kyla is she's game for a group thread and let me know!

Sam & Faramir

First meeting sounds good!  We should speak to Quillnink, it'd be wonderful to have Frodo in on this too. ~

Elrond & Faramir

I could start this one, if you like?  Set it after the War of the Ring, when Elrond travels to Minas Tirith with Arwen?

Eomer & Faramir: Not at all. It might take a bit though since I'm horribly behind on posts and such >.>

Celeborn & Faramir: I'm going to have to wait until I get my laptop back to IM her since the power chord went bye-bye but a new one should be here this week some time.

Sam & Faramir: Yes, having Frodo involved would be fun.

Elrond & Faramir: If you could start it, that would be grand, Cass.

Wonderful, thanks Becca!  My starter may also take a while to appear, between me being behind and life kicking my butt.  I'll drop you the link on Skype when it's posted. ~

Faramir and Pippin
These two might’ve met up late in the game, but Faramir probably did encounter Pippin here during the latter’s time in Gondor, and obviously again after Pip would return there, but that would be far in the future. Would you like to figure and thread where that might go? And don’t worry about being on the slow end of things, it so happens I might have to be the same myself soon-ish.

Faramir & Pippin

You beat me to this Val, I'd been planning to hit up Pippin's plotter!  I would love, love, love to have threads with these two and, truth be told, I imagine they forge a lasting friendship given that Pippin later names his son after Faramir and given Faramir owes his life to Pippin.  In return, I know the Ranger will harbour a deep respect of Pippin for his courage, generosity and good humour.  Perhaps something based around (or after) this encounter?  Or whatever you have in mind, I'm wide open to ideas!  Also, your understanding of my tardiness is much appreciated. <3

Faramir and Pippin
Urk, I knew there was a reason to go re-watch extended editions past Fellowship! That encounter could be as good starting point as any provided we don’t have anything after it that may affect the existing plot? And maybe Pippin might even be able to show Faramir that he can be his own person rather than Boromir’s shadow eventually, who knows?

Then there’s the aftermath to deal with which they never really showed and everything else to go from there? Though I’m not at all sure what ‘everything else’ covers, but something probably can be fitted into between after the battle and Aragorn’s coronation?... *goes nosing around the net for second and third parts of LoTR*

Just popping back in, Cass, to say that Eomer/Faramir starter will still be happening ASAP. Though I still need to talk to Frodo and Galadriel's players about group threads, unless you were going to approach Frodo's?

I've been gone for what feels like a million years but at last I seem to be getting into the swing of posting again.  Sort of. XD

Faramir & Pippin
That sounds like perfection!  It will take time and encouragement, but Faramir will have to learn to step out from his beloved brother's shadow.  He never gets the recognition from his father he so desired, so the kindness and insight of others is invaluable to him. <3  An aftermath thread would be a brilliant starting point too, we might even have more freedom with such an interaction.  Merry spends time in the Houses of Healing after the Battle of Pelennor, and Pippin surely visits him often, so perhaps they spend time together conversing in the gardens?  And Faramir can thank Pippin then, for saving his life.

Any preference on who starts? :)

Becca!

I haven't spoken to either of them, but I shall make a point of dropping them a message today!  Dory is playing Éowyn now so I shall mention it to her.  Also, I hope to have that starter up for Elrond in the next day or two.  I'm slowly getting back into the way of posting, starting with Faramir. ~

Feeling some inspiration brewing!  Looking forward to a group thread.

First meetings sound great, a bit of dialog till the skirmish in Ithilian gets going.

Faramir & Frodo & Sam

I totally forgot that we don't have an active Gollum at the moment.  Nevertheless, we can still thread!  The pair will spend some time in Faramir's company, given that he drags them from Ithilien to Osgiliath with the initial intention of bringing them to Minas Tirith.  Sorry guys, going by the movie canon you don't exactly see Faramir at his finest.  Any preference on who starts?  I think it might be best if one of you do, if only to set up the scene of the Rangers attacking the Haradrim and their awe of the Oliphaunts.  I'm flexible, though. ~
