Written for Slash Me Twice; Prompt: 001. Shadow
Faramir rested his elbows on the railing of his balcony and gazed over the city that had been his home since the day he was born. The shadow of Mordor was growing, getting closer with every passing moment, already seeming close enough that he felt he could simply hold out his hand and touch it.
Smiling as strong arms wrapped around him and pulled him close, he leaned back into his lover’s embrace and closed his eyes. Only in Haldir’s arms, could he forget. Only here could he put aside the pain of losing his beloved brother, and the anger at his senseless death.
“We will survive this,” Haldir whispered against Faramir’s ear as he entwined their fingers and gave them a gentle squeeze. “We will survive, and grow stronger, meleth. Never doubt that.”
Faramir turned in his lover’s arms and gazed into sparkling blue eyes. “And after that?” he asked softly.
“After that, we will arrange for a few…accidents,” Haldir smiled, his eyes growing dark and cold, and causing a small shiver of desire to run down Faramir’s spine. “Just like Ellesar’s unfortunate fall. And the…shocking disappearance of his beloved wife. Then we will join the dark lord and rule all of Gondor as we see fit.”
Faramir’s eyes matched those of his lover and he nodded as his free hand moved to touch the ring hanging from a chain around his neck. “As we see fit,” he repeated softly. “And we will make those wretched hobbits pay for letting my brother die.”
Haldir’s tongue snaked out and licked at his lover’s lips. “Anything you wish, my love,” he whispered. “Anything you wish.”
