Seeing Red

By lindahoyland


Seeing Red

These characters all belong to the estate of J.R.R. Tolkien. This story was written for pleasure and not for financial gain.

With grateful thanks to Raksha for her help,

Seeing Red

Faramir wept bitterly, tears pouring from his blue eyes.

"Stop crying, boy, or I'll beat you again!" Denethor said harshly.

"I'm crying because you don't love me, daddy!"

"It is unlikely I even am your father - you have red hair!" Denethor roared.

"Could the renowned Captain Thorongil be my daddy then?" Faramir asked hopefully, dodging a blow from the enraged Steward's hand.

"Impossible!" Denethor snapped. "The scoundrel left before you were begotten. He was dark too."

Faramir looked disappointed, then cheered up as a new thought struck him.

"Boromir does not have dark hair either," he remarked.

Denethor exploded.

A/N This is of course, Movieverse and AU and has no connection to my other stories about Faramir.

I plead guilty to having written weepy Faramir.

I do know of people with red hair born to dark haired parents in real life, so Denethor is being unreasonable.

KBHumphrey: Fun story. It's like the author read several volumes on the future of wearables and other emerging technologies and crafted his tale around them. At some points, though, it felt more like he was unloading his research into the story, rather than allowing it to come organically.Great narrative voi...

Serlina Rose: I read this story and i could picture this relationship clearly, not just because I am experiencing the same things towards my best-friend of six almost years.

Alex Rushmer: Although I don't know the story of the Phantom of the Opera, I really enjoyed this story. The writing was very evocative, and it really put a picture of time and setting in my mind. The voice of the story really added to the character development. The idea of the time travelling -- or whatever re...

ianwatson: The comedy is original and genuinely funny, I have laughed out loud many times reading this book. But the story and the plot are also really engaging. The opening two or three chapters seem quite character-dense but they all soon come to life and there is no padding, filling or wasted time readin...

Ben Gauger: Kudos go to wordworrywill, author of Kings and Things, an otherwise imaginative tale set against the trappings of the royal set, but then again I don't imagine there'd be many authors who invoked the names of Oprah Winfrey, Vladimir Putin, Jeff Bezos, Beyonce and Steven Spielberg, As for the plot...

lunavirgo: This story has fresh ideas, even the theme of cross-dressing have been used before. But Sid is a complicated character, independent, but utterly confused about her feminine charm. There is one mistake that I might point out, in the chapter 15 where Author suddenly starts conversation between Sid ...
