Summary: Aragorn wants to have a huge mirror installed into their chamber right alongside the bed, so that he and Faramir can see how they make love to each other. The King is secretly hoping it would help bring out Faramir’s wilder side, ridding the Steward of his annoying modesty and inhibitions. Faramir is not very keen on the idea – but once the mirror is actually there…

Summary:

While living with her husband was wonderful, Celebrían often longed for the home in which she grew up: Lothlórien. Arwen visited there as well. As mother and daughter, isn't it reasonable to assume they traveled together? If so, Arwen might have been with her mother during the infamous orc attack. Give an account of the event as if she were. Pick and choose one or more options from this list to incorporate into your story.

1. Considering her beauty was only surpassed by Lúthien, why and how did Arwen get away?

2. An elven-warrior' in charge of Celebrían's safety had his entire life change drastically because of this one event.

3. While the event itself should be the dominant focus of the story, don't recount the event itself. Either:
A. Show everything leading up to it. The end of the story is Celebrían's capture.
B. Account for the results of the tragedy. Some possibilities include: end the story with Celebrían's departure or show how her children learn to cope with what happened.

4. "Love can move mountains," but that doesn't make the mountains simple to move. How does Elrond's love bring Celebrían from the brink of death? Why wasn't it enough to keep her in Middle Earth? How does it influence him after she leaves?

5. After Arwen decides to take the path of a mortal life she recalls her last days with her mother. In this light does she regret her choice?

6. How does Celebrían take the news of Arwen's decision to remain in Middle Earth? If she could change her decision and delay sailing west in light of this knowledge, would she?

7. Other Inspiration: Tell another story inspired by and related to the basis of this challenge.

Summary: When Boromir returns from the Ring Quest, the brothers finally decide to be a little bold, and each discovers his long-hidden passion for the other is fully reciprocated.

But! Neither has ever been with a man before, and Boromir, being the caring protective brother, gets himself totally convinced that he will horribly hurt Faramir if they actually try to have full-blown sex. So for quite some time they stick to a superficial light-duty routine, Boromir resolutely defying all of Faramir’s attempts to make him reconsider.

Eventually Faramir gets so frustrated (and sex-depraved), that he shares his plight with Aragorn, who is by then a close friend of both brothers, and is well aware that they have a thing.

Now, Aragorn, who is very experienced, comes up with a practical solution. He will come to the brothers’ bedroom, and demonstrate to Boromir that Faramir does not get harmed by being taken.

Perhaps this could develop into a three-some…

Summary: Faramir is annoyed by Aragorn’s inability to comprehend why it bothers him so much that the King shares his bed with other men besides Faramir. Yes, Aragorn grew up with the Elves, whose ways are freer – but Faramir is no Elf. And the Steward decides to give Aragorn a dose of his own medicine by spending a night with – you decide who. In the end I would like one of them to see the other’s point – but whether it is Aragorn or Faramir who changes his views is up to you.

Summary: Let’s have some weirdness. Aragorn has an evil twin-brother, who looks exactly like him and whom Aragorn had been trying to keep in secret all his life – for obvious reasons. But the man follows the new King to Minas Tirith – and all hell breaks loose…

Summary: Young Faramir takes refuge in the Golden Wood. Young Faramir (make him as young as 10 or 11 if you like), being chased by Orcs, or fleeing from abuse at home, eventually finds himself on the outskirts of Lothlorien. He is captured by the vigilant Elven guards (who are not particularly fond of strangers, as we remember…) and brought for questioning to the Lord and Lady of the Wood. But Galadriel sees he is but a frightened unfortunate boy, and takes pity on him. She places him under her protection, and he stays in Lorien in a position of something like her page. So Faramir’s youth passes with the Elves, he learns their tongue, their ways and their arts, and grows to fit in quite well. By the time he is around 16-18, he also grows to be very fair, alluring and provocatively unspoilt – and the Lady does not fail to notice that… So she thinks that to make his education complete, she ought to teach him some other things besides walking the tight-rope and shooting a squirrel in the eye. The lessons turn out so enjoyable for both parties, that Faramir soon turns into her habitual lover. Now, Celeborn… He finds it all very amusing for a while, and does not begrudge his wife her current entertainment: Galadriel is an eccentric woman, after all, and this mortal boy she has selected for a sex-toy is, admittedly, a commendable choice. But at some point the Elven-lord begins to get annoyed and even jealous (of whom…?) – and decides to take action. The term ‘action’, of course, has a multitude of meanings… Where it all goes from there is entirely up to you. Bonus points for having each part of the story presented from one of the three character’s POV, giving different perspectives on the situation – although of course I’d be more than thrilled to get a classical third-person narration as well.

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…
