following exchange of letters between Faramir and Éowyn is part of
a continuing fanfiction story based on JRR Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings"
and related works. The earlier chapters are online roleplays (except for Frogbreeders, which I wrote as a birthday for
a friend), and thus were written by many people who I like to thank here
for their creative contribution. In chronological order, these stories are:
(pdf) (set spring Third Age 2995)
night the "Troll's Nose" burned down (set
February Third Age 3008)
Lebennin Conspiracy (Spring TA 3012)
Quest of Revenge (September Fourth
Túrin and Visilya (November
Secret (November FA 8) tbc
reading these stories on the boards can be a little uncomfortable with a
slow connection, I decided to edit the stories into a more readable format
and convert them to pdfs. The first two can be found here:
Lebennin Conspiracy (first part) (pdf)
moment I'm in the process of writing a proper ending to the "Lebennin
Conspiracy" as this story remains unfinished in the original thread.
So look out for updates.
29.12.07: Here is the first: although still not entirely completed, I at least managed to write the story a little further: The
Lebennin Conspiracy continued
Also, there is a timeline of events available.
by the stories and characters developed through these RPs, Lady_of_Rohan
(who writes for Éowyn) and I (Khorazir,
writing for Faramir) decided to carry on the tale. Beginning as a series
of real letters which are not published here, at some point in the story
we decided to switch to email instead. I will post the letters in chronological
order. Since we are still in the process of continuing the story, watch
out for regular updates.
following exchange between Faramir and Éowyn is set in Fourth Age
10. The couple has just seen an addition to their family: the twins Meriadoc
and Peregrin. Two days after their birth, Faramir receives a message from
Minas Tirith urging him to return there. The message is a trap, because
on the way to the City he and his company are ambushed, and Faramir taken
captive. However, he manages to write a brief message to Éowyn and
to send it home with his horse Narâk (as illustrated above):
message, 28th Nenimë, Fourth Age 10
days after receiving this message, a way to communicate with her husband
presents itself to Éowyn, in the form of the Noldo Lordel and his
tame buzzard Aiglos.
send a brief message with the bird, to which Faramir replies thus:
letter, 9th Sulimë, FA 10
then on they exchange messages regularly, in the hope Faramir's captor will
not realise what is going on.
(message arrives in Ithilien Sulimë 27th)
the "Reunion"-RP is not finished yet, we decided to continue with
the story in the form of letters in order to retain the "real-time"
effect. Some four months have passed since the events (still being) recounted
24th Narquelië, Fourth Age 11
to Khorazîr, 6th Ringarë
to Faramir, 7th Lótessë
7th Víressë (the letter Éowyn forwards to
story continues with yet another RP: "The Snake's Checkmate".
The title says it all, I reckon:
inspired by this story: "Watching the game"
