Midwinter Swap: The stories are in!
Since our Midsummer Swap resulted in such wonderful stories, we’ve decided to organise another challenge exchange, this time for Midwinter (December 22nd).
And here they are – all the requests, and all the stories. May they brighten up this shortest, darkest day of the year for all of you in the Northern Hemisphere:
Kimber Leigh requested:
Boromir comes to Faramir on the eve of his wedding to Eowyn. Either in a dream or as a ghost. Smutty is good, as is a bit of angst, but please don’t make them drown in the emo :) And no Eowyn bashing please.
This request resulted in: In Dreams, by Empy
A pairing of either Faramir/Aragorn or Faramir/Boromir that has Faramir as the dominant partner, for a change. Most fics you see have him as the innocent, submissive one. Let’s see him be the aggressor for a change. Any rating is fine, though R and above would be better. :) No heavy angst or anyone in pain.
This request resulted in: In the Bleak Midwinter, by Kimber Leigh
I would like to read a Faramir/Rumil fic, one where it’s Yule and young Ranger Faramir finds a lost elf in the woods. The elf has barely come of age and has never left the safety of Lorien before, so now he’s lost and scared. It’s too late and too cold to walk back to Lorien, but our favorite Ranger appears and rescues Rumil. I would like them to be cute, act like the youngsters they are (and at least one of them to have his first time!). Oh, and it has to be a fluffy, sweet NC17! Pretty please with Rangers on top!
This request resulted in: A Yuletide Gift, by Gondorbunny
I would like an Ithilien ranger fic please. Ideally I’d like something fairly romantic, with some comforting or reassuring in it. I have no preference as to which ranger Faramir is paired with providing Mablung makes an appearance somewhere. :)
This request resulted in: Beginning to believe, by Anorienbean
Sivan Shemesh requested:
Faramir/Legolas/Boromir, Faramir/Legolas, Boromir/Legolas. Both brothers claims Legolas, who will remains wilh him? and of-course, one of the brothers been murdered by his own flesh. Who will kill who and stayed with his prize?
NC-17, Double Pentration, angst, violence, character death, romance and full of erotica.
This request resulted in: Jealousy, by Bell Witch
Faramir/Haldir, Faramir/Boromir, Faramir/Aragorn, Faramir/Elf, fluffy, with either of them being a virgin. I’d love a happy ending too :)
This request resulted in: Loving the Steward, by Minx
Any of the following: Boromir/Faramir with toppy Faramir, Faramir/Beregond or Faramir/Eomer.Smut, preferably with lots of kissing, would be brilliant.. :) I’m also quite fond of first-time fics, but I prefer them to be a bit rough rather than fluffy, as sap isn’t my thing. (I hasten to add that strong kinks like BDSM or watersports aren’t my cup of tea either, though.) Angst is nice, too. If you can work in a midwinter theme, all the better, but please don’t feel like you have to.
This request resulted in: My Lord, Command Me, by Laurëlóte
Aragorn/Faramir, with inexperienced and clueless Faramir who needs to be seduced by Aragorn. Would be nice if twins and / or Legolas and Gimli jump in to help with advice or in any other way.
This request resulted in: The Time to Rejoice, by Kissa
Bell Witch requested:
Ideas: Faramir with human partner, known in canon, darkfic. Violence and non-con are fine, incest fine for darkfic. Even orcs and other creepy things are fine (must be the season.) For a lighter fic, still prefer Faramir with human partner. Not into sappy romance but I do read sweet things too (I’m so ashamed.) Aragorn, Eomer. Do not like Boromir/Faramir for anything like healthy relationship. Incest=darkfic to me. Smut not required, certainly.
This request resulted in: Encore, by Iris
