Summary: Steward Faramir inadvertently trespasses on Beorn’s lands.
Faramir is en route to Dale on a diplomatic mission, but some mishap gets him off the course, he loses his companions, his horse, and ends up wandering into Beorn’s homestead. Now, that would obviously not be the Beorn Bilbo had met, but rather his grandson. Well, no difference: like father like son, etc. Suspicious, unfriendly, gruff, proud and independent, dark-haired, very tall and very strong – you get the picture.
Faramir would not get a very warm welcome – perhaps Beorn’s dogs would chew him up a bit, or even the owner himself would cuff him a couple of times before deciding to give the strange visitor a chance to explain himself. A notch more hospitable this time, Beorn offers the Gondorian Steward to have some rest after the long road, and also heal his new cuts and bruises.
After a couple of days, when the men get a little used to each other, Faramir begins to suspect Beorn’s reserved disposition is simply the other side of his loneliness and distrust. Well, I suppose it is understandable where things would go from there…
One smutty little detail before I wrap this up. Beorn is tall. Very
tall. Like, er, you know what I’m hinting at…
