A place for comments or questions on my fiction, or else just for general chat!

Here's general comment, mostly attached to Game of Chess and The Lost, but spanning all the Unabeauverse story arcs containing Faramir. One of my favorite scenes in GoC is when Imrahil starts berating Denethor's actions towards his family (I think it's Ch. 12) and Faramir tells him to stop - that all his life it has torn him in two to hear his father repeatedly maligned by others, and yet he loves and respects Denethor as his father despite it all, and finds things to admire in the man. It was really a moving moment for me, and highlighted a whole facet and feeling of Faramir that I'd not seen explored anywhere else. You talked of it more in Lost I know (and elsewhere, I'm sure, but I can't think specifics right now), where he wonders why people forget that he is Denethor's son, too, and that he is not eager to forget that heritage no matter others' opinions of his father.
