Disclaimer: Tolkien discovered Middle-earth in the Red Book, how pleased we are he let the world know of it.
I considered my sweet Finduilas and I formed a whole; I - fire and stone, she - air and water. So graceful... lively as mountain streams, but capable of raging like winter storms. No weakling milk-sop, my Finduilas, her moods could be black as ocean’s depths.
Our sons are fire, yet also their mother’s water and air. Boromir’s strength blazes bright, overwhelming even; his emotions change and flow as water... deeper perhaps than even he knows.
Faramir prizes airy intellect above power - in peace that may do, but now...?
I confess, I think my stone would serve both better.
