Criticism of the speed of the relationship or ‘love’ of Faramir and Eowyn. In my experience feelings and decisions ripen very quickly (as measured by mere ‘clock-time’, which is actually not justly applicable) in periods of great stress, and especially under the expectation of imminent death. And I do not think that persons of high estate and breeding need all the petty fencing and approaches in matters of ‘love’. This tale does not deal with a period of ‘Courtly Love’ and its pretences; but with a culture more primitive (sc. less corrupt) and nobler.

"[Faramir] was described by Éowyn as being a greater warrior and more honest person than any man of Rohan." [x]

I hope whoever wrote this part of the wikia did it on purpose because all I could think was this

(i think i’m known for kiliel at this point but my forever middle earth otp: these two losers)

Lets all just stop for a second.

Boromir dies to save Merry and Pippin.

The hobbits are later freed from the orcs because Eomer attacked

image

image

Pippin goes on to save Faramir’s life

image

image

And Merry to save Eowyn’s.

image

image

Faramir and Eowyn then fall in love

image

Thanks to Eomer and Boromir saving the hobbits, their siblings survived and ended up married.

Now you may go weep.

lotr meme - six bro/otps (5/6) Faramir and Éowyn

I do not know what is happening. The reason of my waking mind tells me that great evil has befallen and we stand at the end of days. But my heart says nay; and all my limbs are light, and a hope and joy are come to me that no reason can deny. Eowyn, Eowyn, White Lady of Rohan, in this hour I do not believe that any darkness will endure!’ And he stooped and kissed her brow.”
