Rum

Well, Faramir got a little drunk... and depressed... because he was a little drunk... and... then he decided he didn't much care about being alive. Heck, he might even be more respected when he die...

    Maybe he could swear by the tree or by the tower. Or you could make something up. How about something reminiscent of Numenor sinking: "By Ar-Zimraphel's foam," or something suggesting froth on the lips of a drowned person.

    I don't have a problem with Faramir very occasionally, and in moments of extreme stress, swearing by the Valar; after all, one of Faramir's Rangers does, though it's more a prayer than a swear, in the book The Two Towers.

    Your drabble here is earnestly written, but to me, the characterisation is off -Faramir seems too ordinary; there's very little pride here, very little in the speech pattern that marks him as a Captain of Gondor, son of the Steward of the greatest City of Men in Middle-earth in the Third Age.

    I'm not sure if you were depicting the character from the book or the movie. Movie-Faramir is a weaker man, and this drabble might fit him; but he didn't have time to get drunk between Denethor's command and his leading out the doomed charge.

    Your technique is good. I hope you write more stories.
