Marital Spats

Challenge Details

Marital spats always happen, even in the "perfect" couple, so what about Faramir & Eowyn? Arwen & Aragorn? Rosie & Samwise? Galadriel & Celeborn? Or any other Middle-Earth couple, for that matter?


* What circumstances could possibly provoke a fight between these two? And we're not talking just a disagreement. Somebody sleeps on the proverbial couch over this one.

* What would the fight be over? (All kinds of potential here with the many ME inter-cultural marriages!)

And last but not least...

*How do they make up?

What I'm after is how these super-human characters interact and react in the crucible of love.

Superficially, odd Strider's offspring fic- but mostly about men, elves and sex. Started with the 'Death to Fannon!' challenge, then wondered off somewhere... else. Started as 'drama', but I think 'humour' is now more to the point.

Celeborn loses his temper when he suspects that Galadriel has baited the trap that will ensnare their granddaughter's heart, and ultimately claim her life.

Arwen had always been too good for Aragorn, and they both knew it....
