The Mission - Faramir

These characters all belong to the estate of J.R.R. Tolkien. This story was written for pleasure and not for financial gain


The Mission - Faramir

“Your brother shall go to Imladris,” Denethor said firmly to his younger son. “I have granted him the errand.”

“I had the dream several times, father, Boromir had it but once,” Faramir protested. ”Maybe he dreamed, because I told him of my vision.”

“I have decided and will not be gainsaid,” said the Steward, looking at Faramir sharply.
If this dream portended what he thought it might, he was not risking this impressionable wizard’s pupil of a son on such a mission. Should the heir to the sword -that -was broken come forth, he feared Faramir’s head would be turned.


This was my first attempt at writing a drabble. The challenge in the "There and Back" community inspired me to try.
The idea of Denethor fearing to send Faramir on the mission came about in e mail discussions on the subject with Raksha some months ago and was her idea.
The conversation in the story takes place in July 3018
