'Birthday Parties' challenge: Kortirion : 'Fire Signs'

Title: Fire Signs
Author: Kortirion
Character: Faramir
Rating: G
Source: AU speculation
Disclaimer: Tolkien created the characters - Kortirion is warmed by the glow.
Note: My acknowledgements to fileg who began the concept that the House of Hurin are all Fire signs by saying 'Boromir is the poster-boy for Leo'. ;D

The market-place seers call us ‘Sons of Fire’, my father, brother and I. They cast the bones for our birthday celebrations, looking to the stars, trying to detect our futures, and the White City’s. They say each month has a humour; my father’s are new-made spring fires – quick to blaze up, impatient, fearlessly shining forth. Boromir’s are high-summer fires – flaming brilliantly hot and bold, bringing joy and warmth. And mine? Mine are quieter, winter flames – slow-burning fires to think and dream by, that keep alight the hope for the sun’s return.

Yet ...sometimes ...fire is something that brings me unease.
