The Lesson - Aragorn and Faramir

The Lesson - Aragorn and Faramir


The covered object stood in the centre of the table.

Faramir approached it hesitantly. He was known as a tamer of man and beast, but this thing and the memories it evoked caused even his valiant heart to quail.

Yet, learn to use it he must, if he were to prove a worthy Steward of the Realm.

“You do not have to do this, my friend,” Aragorn said gently.

“I must,” Faramir replied. ”It cannot destroy me as it did my father. Sauron is no more”

“I will teach you how best to master it,” Aragorn replied, unveiling the palantír.


A/N This was written for Marta’s “Lessons” challenge on LJ.

I have seen the idea of Faramir learning to use the palantír in other fanfics, most notably “Home to Heal” by Clarion and Raksha.

I imagine this scene-taking place sometime after my current story in the second year of the Fourth Age.

This is the last in my series of drabbles. I would be interested to know which one readers liked best, if any.
