An interesting alternate universe look at what might have happened if Frodo hadn't been wearing his mithril mail shirt when he encountered Faramir's company of Rangers in Ithilien. This is pretty much flat-out hurt/comfort, but well-written and the characters feel true to canon.

[Mind yourself, and listen to Sam when he thinks you need to stop and rest.] So Faramir has already figured out these two! And how stubborn Frodo can be and that Sam has his hand and his heart wrapped around his beloved treasure.

Not badly written, but the point is obscure. Feels unfinished.
