Summary: Faramir, Legolas, and a bow of the Galadhrim. The morning after Aragorn's coronation, two archers find themselves down at the practice grounds. A few arrows, a lot of words, the start of a friendship, and how Faramir beings to learn to let go of the things he no longer needs. Mild angst.

I really liked this one. Not overachieving, but sufficient, and that's enough. Yes, sometimes it takes someone outside our family, or in this case, outside of our own race, to see positives where we see negatives. Meeting Legolas that morning was a good thing for Faramir.

I like that at the beginning Faramir doesn't understand Legolas, and, at the end, Legolas doen't understand Faramir. Heck, I didn't either! But I'm glad Legolas could give him that little bit of wisdom and optimism.

Very good and slightly angsty fic about Faramir just after the king returns. This Faramir initially seems more in keeping with the movie version than the book, but elements of the book are clearly there by the end what we have is an interesting blend of the character. Just as Legolas thinks, it would require years to fully understand him, but Tanaqui gives us a good glimpse of this man in his reaction to Legolas's words and his lingering doubts.

An interesting story showing the unusual pairing of Faramir and Legolas as protagonists. For my taste Faramir acts and thinks too much as movie!Faramir but I like the story for the plot invoking that a vision or presentiment of Finduilas induced her to choose the name version sufficient for her second born.
