Casting the second vote for Faramir. For the same reasons as Merry, I suppose.
I love Faramir, but you know whom I love the most.
Aragorn is the mysterious hero, that doesn't always do what he should, doesn't know what he's doing sometimes, but it turns out alright, because of his destiny. Faramir is the righteous one, you just admire, the second best man, you will have to do with, but can't fall helplessly in love with, as you know whom.
Boromir was mostly annoying
until I saw the movies. Which shan't be mentioned here.
Boromir is brave, the noble burial and the song almost makes me forget what he did, but let's face it, he's better dead.
He is like Judas, necessary for the advancement of the plot
, Frodo and Sam must go alone and so on, for the fellowship to fulfill its mission, but not so interesting otherwise.
Except as to show us the power of the ring, be a bad example showing Faramir how he should be instead etc. OK, OK, he is important
and I normally fall for bad boys,
but not in this case. My love for Faramir is too strong, especially as he is the Professor in disguise.
Edited to add: Forgot to read the initial post properly.
So, I must choose whom I would yell for in case of emergency? It's still Faramir, he is Mr. Reliable.
