Title: Building Ties
Fandom: Lord of the Rings
Note: 175 words. For freckles42, who wanted Faramir/Éowyn, visiting Edoras/Meduseld.
Faramir had visited Edoras before, and been a guest of Théoden -King in the Golden Hall of Meduseld, yet this time was different. Now he came not as the disregarded second son of a grudgingly trusted ally, but with the guest right of kin through Éowyn. She had long expressed a desire to visit her old home, show it to Faramir, and spend time with Éomer and his bride, one of Faramir's own kinswomen.
The beauty of the place was much as Faramir remembered: less sophisticated perhaps than the ancient stone-carved edifices of Gondor, but with a buoyant vigour and delight that Faramir felt well reflected the spirit of the Rohirrim. Éowyn led him through every inch of the Hall -- excepting perhaps a storeroom or two -- and the best part of the town as well. Faramir noted the sturdy construction, and promised himself that he would see if he could persuade some craftsmen of Rohan to return with them to Ithilien, there to aid in the building of new towns for Gondor's resettled folk.
