Title – Clarity
Author: Linda Hoyland
Characters/Pairing: Boromir, Faramir
I see it clearly now. This was not meant to be my task, but my brother’s. Ah Faramir, never should I have begged the errand that was rightfully yours! You have the stronger will, the wiser heart. The Ring’s evil would never have ensnared you. You could have endured Galadriel’s gaze and looked her in the eye. The Quest is destroyed thanks to my folly. I have doomed us all to darkness. I fear for you, brother, the light is fading, and with it the glory of our House. May my blood atone for the ill choices I have made!
