the line of elros ❖ stewards of gondor ❖ headcanon disclaimer
Faramir was the younger son of Denethor II, and was the last Ruling Steward of Gondor. His father loved him less than his brother Boromir, for though they were alike in many ways, Faramir listened to the advice of the wizard Mithrandir whom Denethor distrusted. It was Faramir who first received dreams of Imladris and Isildur’s Bane, but Denethor chose to send Boromir to discover what the dreams meant while Faramir was ordered to Ithilien as a Ranger of the South.
There he encountered the hobbits Frodo and Sam on their journey to Mordor to destroy the One Ring. To them he revealed the death of Boromir, of which the hobbits had not known, and showed great strength of will in refusing the Ring in contrast to his brother’s fall. As the hobbits continued on their journey, Faramir returned to Osgiliath, failing to hold its defenses as had Boromir. He was struck down by the Witch-king of Angmar’s Black Breath, and was saved only by his uncle Prince Imrahil of Dol Amroth.
Faramir was rendered unconscious and near to death for the remainder of the War of the Ring. His father went mad and attempted to burn them both on a pyre in Minas Tirith, but Faramir was saved by Mithrandir though, Denethor perished. He was then taken to the Houses of Healing, where he was healed by Aragorn after the Battle of the Pelennor Fields was won. He spent the rest of the War recovering in the Houses of Healing, where he met Éowyn of Rohan, another grievously wounded patient. They fell in love, and were married after the War.
Showing a humility his father never possessed, Faramir led the coronation of Aragorn as King Elessar of Gondor and Arnor, surrendering his position as Ruling Steward. Aragorn reinstated the original role of the Stewards and returned the title to Faramir, also creating him as the Prince of Ithilien.
Faramir and Éowyn settled in Ithilien, and he inherited his ancestral title of Lord of Emyn Arnen. Together he and Éowyn had two children, Elboron and Rohiril. Elboron, a scholar and writer, was very dear to Aragorn’s son Prince Eldarion, and never married; Rohiril wed one of her father’s knights, Silevegil, and bore them a son. This child, Barahir, would eventually inherit his uncle Elboron’s title and passion for lore, writing the Tale of Aragorn and Arwen which survived in an abridged form through the ages in the Thain’s Book.

Fandom: The Lord of the Rings - J. R. R. Tolkien
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Éowyn/Faramir (Son of Denethor II)
Characters: Éowyn (Tolkien), Faramir (Son of Denethor II)
Additional Tags: Drabble, Fluff, Romantic Fluff, Flirting, Nerdy Flirting, Tooth-Rotting Fluff, The Silmarillion References, because of course Faramir is familiar with ancient Elvish history, and would use that knowledge to come up with obscure compliments on the fly
While Eomer and Gimli are discussing whether Arwen or Galadriel is the most beautiful woman in the world, Faramir suggests a third possibility.

I love Éowyn and Faramir as a couple and I love Éowyn and Merry as a couple and it’s such a struggle because I wanna say “Éowyn has two hands” but she doesn’t because one of her hands is holding a sword probably :(

Tolkien wrote LOTR in the 30s and 40s when women had no rights. He wrote Eowyn as this badass who laughed in the face of death and stood up to the sexism of men.
In the movies that were made in the late 90s and early 2000s, they decided her feminist scenes from the book weren't worth keeping and all we got was "I am no man".
Tolkien knew the importance of women, not just being a part of the narrative, but leading it, and, as much as I love the movies, Peter Jackson didn't. This will always be something that pisses me off. There are SO many men and they cut the scenes of the one woman who stood up to them.
Women in fantasy deserve more. Women in film deserve more. Women deserve more. Period.
To all the little girls watching LOTR: I hope you read the books as soon as you can. There's more for you. You can be the hero just as much as Aragorn, Frodo, Sam, Theoden, Legolas, Gimli, Gandalf, etc. But don't just stop there. You don't need anyone to tell you what you're able to do, especially a man. Be your own Tolkien. Write your own story. Make your own movie. Do what you want because you can.

This part is my favorite. Rapunzel is descended from Merry and Éowyn and Corona is modern Rohan.
Let’s start with the flags
So obviously any Lotr and Tangled fan knows these flags. And obviously the biggest connection here is the sun. And Rohan’s flag has a white horse on it, just like a certain disney horse we all know and love
It’s well known that horses are the backbone of Rohirrim society, and horses are at least important enough in Corona for there to be an entire horse sport invented in their country. Plus, both main cities are built on a large hillside/small mountain, with the castle being at the top overlooking the city.
And now for the genetics.
Obviously it’s clear that over roughly 2000 years, not all of Merry and Éowyn’s traits are gonna be super prominent in Rapunzel or either of her parents. However, there are some small clues. Just like Merry and Éowyn, Rapunzel is without a doubt a horse lover. And younger Arianna seems to have had the same kind of attitude as Éowyn pre Witch King, wanting to go out into the world and make something of herself. And being part Hobbit could also give further explanation as to why Willow and Rapunzel in particular like to be barefoot.

Merry: [about Éowyn] And then we had a little eye contact.
Pippin: Eye contact? I hope you were using protection.

Recently worked with @koorimars to turn my Middle-earth inspired designs into pins and T-shirt!
Four new pins are for pre-order at the moment:
Dragon-sickness (my own favorite design!)
Bilbo and his Redbook
The Redbook (of Westmarch)
“I AM NO MAN.”
I am also very fond of this T-shirt pattern. “Home is behind” on the back and “The world ahead” on the chest. (The model wearing the Tee is myself. :D )
Thank you so much.

Faramir: Touching the art is forbidden.
Eowyn: You smooth Motherfucker.

Women of the Legendarium: 8/?
Women of Lord of the Rings: 5/?
Míriel was a woman of Gondor and the daughter of the Steward Denethor II and his wife Finduilas. She was born three years after their eldest son Boromir, and two prior to Faramir; ever she hearkened to Boromir rather than Faramir, and they were close in heart. After her mother's death, she was left to look after Faramir due to her father's absence. She was strong-spirited at an early age, which her father was weary of. She enjoyed travelling to the regions of Gondor, though especially Dol Amroth, loving the sights and sounds of the sea. She was troubled by the Shadow in the east, but though she daunted she did not waver. She felt a hot desire to fight for her country, and lend aid to the soldiers. Denethor was wise, and he counselled his daughter against it. But she was determined, and stubborn as the Araws of Old, and in secret she went to battle. She and her brother Boromir fought together often, holding back the forces of Minas Morgul in Osgiliath. During the War of the Ring, she refused the order for the women and children to evacuate, to Denethor's dismay. She pursued the Lieutenant of Morgul, engaging him in combat and slaying him with the help of Peregrin Took, then riding to Morannon and fighting in the last battle.

BADASS LOTR LADIES
"The king may rule the kingdom, but it’s the queen who moves the board.” - D.M. Timney

I don’t like my singing but my mom asked me to do it more so pls be nice to me thank you
Whatever you do, don't imagine domestic Merrywyn after the War of the Ring.
Don't imagine Eowyn traveling with the hobbits and cooking for them and they're more than happy to eat her stew (especially Merry)
Don't imagine Merry proudly bringing a human home to his parents
Don't imagine Eowyn playing with Merry's younger cousins
Don't imagine Eowyn trying to fit in more by wearing flowers in her hair and going barefoot
Don't imagine everyone in the Shire referring to her as Wyn Brandybuck.
Don't imagine Pippin and Frodo telling Eowyn every embarrassing story about Merry
