Tolkien quote of the day:

But his cunning overreached his aim; his words touched too deep, and awoke a fire more fierce than he designed; and Fëanor looked upon Melkor with eyes that burned through his fair semblance and pierced the cloaks of his mind, perceiving there his fierce lust for the Silmarils. Then hate overcame Fëanor's fear, and he cursed Melkor and bade him be gone, saying: 'Get thee gone from my gate, thou jail-crow of Mandos!'

Of the Silmarils and the Unrest of the Noldor, The Silmarillion

bullet Till We Have Faces by Antane Last Updated: 4/6/2014
Written for the LOTR GenFic Community September 2011 "Hit the Books" challenge in which we were given a title of a famous book to use as our title. This is from a book by C.S. Lewis, but otherwise is unrelated. The bunny that came out of this was what if Boromir’s funeral boat found the Straight Road and arrived at the Lonely Isle and his body remained incorrupt until after Frodo came. NOW CONTINUED! Faramir is also in the story, not so much a physical presence, but he is most definitely here.
