Terrain challenge - crumbling - 'Argonath trilogy III: Hope Renewed' : Kortirion

Title: Hope Renewed
Author: Kortirion
Character: Faramir
Rating: G
Source: post-Ring War
Disclaimer: Still all Tolkien’s... not so much Kortirion’s

I had never seen them, only the archive’s drawings of the Pillars-of-the-Kings, likenesses of the ancient line that was lost – so we thought. I’d looked at them as a boy, listened to Mithrandir’s tales... and Father’s dismissal of a past... not altogether ours.

When I found the Horn I knew Boromir had seen them. When I wandered in darkness... I almost thought... Hope had been taken from us, then, as warm spring winds banish winter, Blackness was dispersed – and I saw, not crumbling statues, but a king renewed.

Later, I rode to view the Argonath – and hope rode with me.
