Good job on this one. I really hope you get your spark back.

Really good. :) I like it.

Poor Aragorn has felt all these hurts and far too many times in his difficult life. Thankfully, he's had family and friends around to help him make it through!
I *do* hope you get your writing spark back...I've enjoyed so many of your stories. :)

Wow! Even my parents liked that one, when I showed them. Congratulations, that was thought inspiring and interesting.

Just letting you know there's still someone here to read your stories. If you don't feel that you can keep writing, well, I can't help that, but if you can write, you can be sure there'll be an audience!
Nice musings here. I like the mention that "there is no Elvish word for 'good-bye'" - although there are many things Elves may say at parting, even the final journey is only to Mandos, where friends can be re-united. Hebo estel - have hope.
Thank you for writing,

Wow. This was just incredible! The imagery and the descriptions here were just beautifully written and I could hear Aragorn's voice as he was talking. And the little flashback moments made it all the more heartwarming. Great job on this!

Aw, Cal. I know just what you mean about the 'spark'. It's either there or it isn't. Mine has been on the wane for a while, but not completely extinguished. I still read Teitho stories every month and check out this site once a week or so. But as to your new story, wonderfully written as always. You take such a common topic and turn it into something stunning. The bittersweet is the best. Sometimes you just wish you could hold onto a moment. That's how your story made me feel.

Thank you! What a lovely present! *g* (Both the fic and the fact that you're writing in the LotR fandom again. Welcome back! *hugs*)
This is a beautiful, beautiful story. I have to admit that I've not been doing too much reading of LotR-fics lately myself, and this one is a lovely way to come back. I love these little moments, the thoughts and the quotes that come after them, they're brief but so expressive and absolutely perfect.
No wonder we all love writing angst so much. ;-)
Thank you again!

It's so good to read a new story from you, Cal! This was beautiful, and also bittersweet. I guess it's a bit like the essence of why people love reading and writing h/c. Loved it! :)

As I told you in the e-mail, I think this is very good. And I am really glad to see you again. :)
| Minerva Organa 9/25/10 . chapter 1
Oh this was beautiful...such a good character study, and the prose is beautiful. And so fitting for Aragorn.
I was so glad to see this, I've missed your writings! Though I empathize in terms of the spark being gone, as its been far too long since the last time I wrote fic :-/

Very nice study of the topic, and Aragorn makes a good basis for it. Surely he has known all of the various kinds of hurt you describe, and survived them well.
that quickly fades and is forgotten easy - probably should be "easily"
More often than not, it comes with guilty and clings. - probably should be "guilt"
