Story meme

Future histories

Here is a meme that did the rounds on LJ recently; not only was it fun, it was a source of ideas:

Ask me what happens after the end of one of my stories.

Happy Belated Birthday Altariel!

I've been wondering about this for a while, and just remembered it now:

From "Black Captain"

Faramir looked up sharply. ‘Who was that?’

‘Lord Minastan.’

He leaned back in his chair, folded his arms, and stared in frank disbelief. ‘Minastan confronted you?’

‘I am not in the habit of imagining such things.’

‘But what could he be thinking...?’ Faramir frowned, looking past the other man into the fire. ‘He must know that my father would have... He cannot think that I would not...’

A slow smile crept across the steward’s face. He bent over the game once more, relishing the confiscation of a white rook more than it perhaps warranted. ‘I shall speak to him in the morning. You need not trouble yourself over Minastan again, my lord.’

‘I think,’ the king replied softly, ‘you might tell me why.’

‘I happen to know that Minastan...’ Faramir replied, ‘was once unwise – very unwise. And would benefit, it seems, from being reminded of my father’s... circumspection at the time.’

‘I think,’ the king said once more, and this time the crack of the whip was clear, ‘you might tell me why.’

‘Neither, sire,’ Faramir replied, after a moment, ‘would that be wise.’


I can't recall that being elaborated in another of your stories -- did I miss it?

Many thanks!
