Request: At the Council of Elrond, Gandalf says, "Less welcome did the Lord Denethor show me then than of old, and grudgingly he permitted me to search among his hoarded scrolls and books." I would like a story about a time when Gandalf was more welcome in Minas Tirith. Bonus points if the story includes Gandalf interacting with both Boromir and Faramir.
Summary: Gandalf, Húrin of the Keys, Faramir, and a game of chess; or, personal politics by another name.
