A wonderful piece - very atmospheric and had a nice flow x

Very good, as usual! You seem to have captured Faramir's character, and his father-related fears, perfectly. By this time, Faramir must have known or suspected his father's use of the palantir, and known that Denethor would use it to watch him. Surprisingly powerful for such a brief story. Thanks for writing and posting it. Sincerely, Darkover

A chilling glimpse of that night! I never thought that Denethor would be watching, but of course he would! How infuriated he must have been, watching what he deemed to be the only hope of survival being cast away! And poor Faramir, knowing that naught he did would be counted as good in his father's sight- especially after this! Amazing joB!

Dark thoughts for a dark night.

Subtle, passionate, and strong - like Faramir himself.

I like the way this vignette reprises the very difficult line that Faramir has to walk, on the edge of a knife in more ways than one, keeping true to Gondor and himself and not breaking faith with the father who doubts and scorns him.

And a wonderful, spooky last line.

This was excellent, you captured Faramir's feelings brilliantly with a nice twist at the end.I 'm enjoying writing these prompts too but have only succeeded in writing drabbles for them.

You've really articulated the problem for Faramir. No matter which option he chooses, his honor is compromised, and for a man like Faramir, that must have been agony.

PJ did a lot of good things with his movies, but his treatment of Faramir was not one of them.
