The Steward's BrideBy Nerey Camille
Posted 19 October 2010
Let’s suppose Éowyn died after slaying the Witch-king (or stayed in Rohan, or never existed at all), and so Faramir never got to know her. Who would Faramir have married then? A noble Gondorian woman is the first idea to come to my mind, but please feel free to choose or invent a character from another country or indeed another race – as long as it is a female (not Arwen or Galadriel, please). I would like to have a love story, and I would like to know why he falls for this particular being and she for him. I’d like them to end up happily married, but you can introduce as many obstacles/angst/hardships as you want before that. They can be in love long before the War of the Ring, or meet long after. Otherwise I would prefer the story to be as book-canon as possible regarding events and Faramir’s character.
