|On the next Jerry Springer: "I DID NOT STEAL YOUR IDENTITY!"
Is Faramir sandy-haired, grouchy, and subject to temptation by the Ring? Or is he raven-haired, canonical, and
narratively inert? Just who is this guy, anyway?
The subject of endless debate, speculation, and questioning, Faramir is one of Tolkien's most enigmatic and beloved
characters. Many readers identify with the less-favored son who redeems himself and finds love unlooked-for in the midst
of battle and darkness. Faramir has inspired a multitude of stories above and beyond what Tolkien wrote.

by SueB. Funny as all get-out. "Day 1 - Saw dead brother in boat. Day can only improve from there."
The Best Laid Plans
by Shieldmaidenofrohan, a.k.a. SMOR. On their way to Edoras after the War of the Ring, Eomer and Faramir find
themselves outwitted by hobbits. Yes, you read that right.
by make_it_stop. A blasé Citadel Guard, a bowl of peas, and two stubborn Stewards. Sometimes the ability
to read the hearts of men isn't such a good thing.
Birds and Bees
by Feana Puddlefoot. Young Boromir and Faramir get "The Talk" from Denethor. Denethor tries to remember
where he's seen Faramir before.
A Mudsummer Night's Dream
by SueB. Chapter 1. Faramir, Eomer, and Aragorn are charged with the task of clearing Orcs out of
a vast wasteland of mud, puddles, mud, water, and more mud. Luckily, they're bringing several changes of clothes
along. Non-slashy (despite the rich potential).
Hello? Two Kings
by tbossjenn. Faramir confronts Peter Jackson over the changes to his character.
Blood and Warm Blankets
by Kielle. A classic parody of the slash genre. Eomer and Faramir find themselves taking refuge in a cave together...
by Clairon. In which Denethor and Faramir discover they speak the same language. Literally.
A Tough Nut to Crack
by SueB. The Official Fan Fic™
of the Dessicated Coconut Website. Aragorn, Eomer, and Faramir receive a coconut as a gift from a Harad chieftain,
and must figure out the secret of the mysterious hairy rock. Is violence the answer?
Tolkien with God
by Princess of Ithilien. God has a little chat with Tolkien in the garden, concerning the earthly unrest
caused by Tolkien's neglecting to fill in the gaps with Faramir while he was alive.
Two's A Crowd by SMOR. Bookamir and Filmamir encounter one another in a tavern. Will they mutually annihilate if they
touch? Can Bookamir explain to his new friend what a palantir is, and who that blonde woman was at the coronation?
by Rosie26. Extracts from Denethor's diary, which expose the REAL reasons behind his dislike for his seemingly
angelic youngest son.
The Lost Tales of a Steward's Son
by Random-Battlecry. If you've ever thought to yourself (or perhaps shrieked aloud on a crowded bus) that
Faramir suffers from Middle Child "Jan Brady" syndrome....meet Denhamir, the youngest son who got left out of all the
history books. This will explain everything.
Random-Battlecry has also written a bunch of Van Helsing/Carl stories
, including "Big Bang Theory", "His Life An Open Book", "Original Vampire Brides: Road Trip", and the dazzlingly silly "Van
Helsing and the Village People".
The Only Jealousy of Éowyn
by Rose, of the Gypsie Rose writing duo at ff.net. Short, but very poignant. Éowyn discovers she's
not the only woman in Faramir's heart.
A Game Of Chess
by Altariel. Widely considered a classic of the Faramir genre, and rightly so. An epic tale of Faramir and
Éowyn's troubled marriage.

Wizards, angry Easterlings, politics, and problem children.
by quillon. Dark and violent. Faramir is tormented by orcs, then again by Denethor Dearest.
Ties Broken By A Sword
by athelas63. Very well-written, plausible portrayal of the family dynamic among Denethor, Boromir, and Faramir.
The Influence of Kindred Desires
by Tanaqui. Eowyn and Faramir's wedding. Embeds the reader fully in the texture, sensory details, local customs, emotion,
and romance of Tolkien's world. Graphic wedding night scene; but tastefully so.
by athelas63. A beach love session between Faramir and Eowyn on their first anniversary results
in new life (aka "From Here To Maternity")
by athelas63. The first birthday after his mother's death weighs heavily on a grieving little boy...

Icky, but Strangely Compelling
Warning: Major smut and dark subject matter. By clicking on the
links below, you agree that you are either 18, or lying through your teeth. Dessicated Coconut does not officially read
or condone any of these stories, since it is a matter of record that no sex ever occurred anywhere in Tolkien's Middle
Earth. Reproduction amongst the characters was handled discreetly, by pollination and budding.
So Small a Thing
by Dreamiflame. Boromir gets the Ring and keeps his little brother on a chain (though the story is light on Faramir
content). Ultra-creepy, dark, and slashy, with a chillingly matter-of-fact tone.
Mistress of Gondor
by Aphrodite. Graphic NC-17 filth with no socially redeeming value whatsoever. Side effects may include
blindness, insanity, and hair growth on the palms of your hands.
by Liz. A light, frothy menage á
'Mir. Boromir pays a visit
to a new bride to claim droit de seigneur
privileges. Faramir comes along as witness.
by Mimine. If your idea of entertainment is gay sibcest blackmail and voyeurism, then look no further. No
need to thank us! Rated E for "euw".
The Dark Part Of His Soul
by athelas and clarion. Seriously dark and XXX-rated. Faramir falls into the clutches of a very, very mean Haradrim
princess, who trains him for slavery.
Keep It Secret...Keep It Safe
by Greymist. Not being fond of RPS, I haven't read this one, but everybody keeps talking about it.
It has something to do with a nightmarish cult involving Sean Bean and Karl Urban, and David thinks he really is Faramir,
or something. Extra-angsty. If you find yourself wanting more, there's a sequel at the same site called "Ghostrider".
Elf Slash Sarcasm
by Tyellas. This really belongs in humor, as it's one of the funniest things I've ever read, but unfortunately its
NC-17 content relegates it to the "Icky But Strangely Compelling" category. Every bad elf-fiction cliche is brilliantly skewered:
"He was clad in silken elvish robes of surpassing gorgeousness, midnight-blue cut velvet embroidered with
trapunto trenellations, crystal briolettes, and silver star-shaped sequins, piped with silk of a blue that evoked the midnight
sky, lined with silver leaf-patterned damask silk satin, the garment's train trailing elegantly behind him for three ells..."
Come to think of it, this story has nothing to do with Faramir whatsoever. But I found it on a site with other
Faramir stories. Does that count?
