I like this story very much. It gives an insight of Boromir as a Man,
not only the Soldier, Gerneral Captain, Son and Brother. I always liked Andrahar. As I watched Game of Thrones, Yoren the recruiter from the Nightwatch, reminds me in part of your created Andrahar.
Sorry for my english...it's not my first language

Charming. I would suspect Faramir more than Boromir to be a lover of men! Lack of fatherly love and all that!

You're very talented. _

Wow! Its wonderful to read a well written male/male slash where the men don't wind up acting like a bunch of sixteen year old girls. Very powerful.

Fantastic! I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed reading this story. It takes into account the difficulty of a male leader finding another man, when he must avoid searching for love within the chain of command. Boromir's quest to understand his own sexuality rings true at every point. Great work!

What? I haven't reviewed here? Shame on me! And no, private feedback isn't quite enough for a story dedicated to me. :)
Anyway, as you know, I'm a devoted fan of Andrahar, and I like your story. You write Boromir very well. I like the differences between your take on him and mine. It's like watching the same pictures on different sorts of light.
Belatedly, thanks for the story and for being such a wonderful friend. *hugs*

No more compulsory than writing het, I reckon.
This isnt a story about two men bedding each other senseless: its about realization, truth, and consequences, with homosexual desire and nature vs. nurture as a reference frame. As such, I would contest the label "slash" applied in such a narrow sense. Unless we label the books themselves "het" just because the characters behave as heterosexuals, that is.

This was a beautiful story, and you captured Boromir's character just as I see him. Thank you for sharing.

Obviously its compulsory for fan fic writers to write slash.
I think theres so many writers who write such a lot of (mostly bad) slash already that you wouldnt feel the need to join in - even if youre one of the best writers.

real good story! i mean normally i avoid slash stories but this one is great! boromir and andrahar they fit perfectly or you make them fit perfectly! it also explains a bit boromirs later behaviour. keep on writing this story i liked it that much that i read it twice!
concerning captain my captain: you do continue it, dont you? its my favourite story on . heth is a real great character and i long to know what decision she will make, please continue and write very quickly some new chapters!
| Amauros Thoughts 12/5/03 . chapter 2
Woah. Unexpected how much I liked that...creepy infact. Hoping you continue the story, but if you werent planning it and it would prevent you from working on Blackbow and the sequel to Captain then...bad bad Isabeau for starting another great story to taunt meh! But also you can take a break from Heth if you feel need and work on this . Or some other story with Eomer? ...Ok now bad meh
| Amauros Thoughts 12/5/03 . chapter 1
Ok, I must say that Im not the biggest slash fan, but I've read a few and love your writing so I started to read this... Now I am intrigued, so I will continue. Feel complimented that I even clicked on the story name! Mwahahahah!
| hobbitlove 11/24/03 . chapter 2
I never read slash but I was really curious to see how you would write it. I really enjoyed the story. The characters and Boromir's dilemma seemed so real.
Now, I echo what the previous reviewer said. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE finish CMC! I'm dying too! You're killing your fans!

I'm glad I kept your post to remind me to look for the story on . Boromir's dilemma, I think, is realistic: we know that soldiers and other groups of men long separated from women have sought out one another, but Boromir, as the Steward's heir, is in a bit of a different situtation. Perhaps there is something of the King and Queen's symbolic role as icons of fertility in pagan times that remains in our subconcious, and of course there is the practical matter of the need for an heir, particularly with Gondor's history of strife whenever the line has failed.
Andrahar's unrequited love for Imrahil is touching, and I particularly appreciated the arms master's effort to put his relationship with Boromir in a new context, of man to man rather than master and pupil or family friend and Imrahil's nephew.
