A lovely drabble. Your discriptions seem to capture the spirit of theplace as I have always imagioned it. it is a nice gift from Faramir tobe giving to Eowyn to bring her their. I like the fact that you have him look back towardsthe war without sadness. It is wonderful to read such an upbeat Faramir story.

Elana has some really interesting things going on here, such as the dichotomy of the blindfold being needed before/not needed now (though I'd argue that it perhaps was needed for most people, it's just that Faramir trusts Eowyn enough), and the idea that the beauty the new age now affords him was brought about by the ugliness of Gollum. A very nice scene.

A lovely thought that Faramir could take Eowyn to that place without a blindfold. I'm sure it was the location of many a restless night. I'm sure their night was more pleasant.

I like the quick moment of flashback for Faramir. The darkness and uncertainty of the times he remembers serves as a good contrast for the joy he feels in sharing this place with Eowyn.

Such a nice thought: to show his wife the scene of so much beauty, and where such a momentous event occurred. I've always loved the view of the waterfalls as JRRT described it, and this drabble does that justice.
