It's time for even more BS! August 1

This is a Book Spoiler of Faramir's understanding of the alliance between Gondor and Rohan... for a moment of Tolkien-zen.

From The Window on the West: The Two Towers

...[Faramir speaks of Rohan] "'Of our lore and manners they have learned what they would, and their lords speak our speech at need; yet for the most part they hold by the ways of their own fathers and to their own memories… …they speak among themselves their own North tongue. And we love them: tall men and fair women, valiant both alike, golden-haired, bright-eyed, and strong; they remind us of the youth of Men, as… …in the Elder Days. Indeed it is said by our lore-masters that they have from of old this affinity with us that they are come from those same Three Houses of Men as were the Númenoreans in their beginning; not from Hador the Goldenhaired, the Elf-friend… …yet from such of his sons and people as went not over Sea into the West, refusing the call.
...'For so we reckon Men in our lore, calling them the High… …Men of the West, which were Númenoreans, and the Middle Peoples, Men of the Twilight, such as are the Rohirrim and their kin that dwell still far in the North; and the Wild, the Men of Darkness…
...”… if the Rohirrim are grown in some ways more like to us, enhanced in arts and gentleness, we too have become more like to them, and can scarce claim any longer the title High. We are become Middle Men, of the Twilight, but with memory of other things. For as the Rohirrim do, we now love war and valour as things good in themselves, both a sport and an end… …though we still hold that a warrior should have more skills and knowledge than only the craft of weapons and slaying, we esteem a warrior… …above men of other crafts. Such is the need of our days. So even was my brother, Boromir: a man of prowess, and for that he was accounted the best man in Gondor… …very valiant indeed he was: no heir of Minas Tirith as for long years been so hardy in toil, so onward into battle, or blown a mightier note on the Great Horn.' Faramir sighed and fell silent for a while."
