Thank you for this beautiful story. I fell in love with Faramir the first time I read the books and couldn't stop reading and re-reading the parts where he appeared - so I felt very much little Hallas at the end. At the same time, when I read how you describe him getting passionate with ancient heroes, and loving that better than reality, I also feel very much like him.
I liked how you described his insecurities and sense of loss after Aragorn's coronation: it is just realistic that he would go on being haunted by some of the painful memories of his past. And I love the detail of the child, the adolescent and the man in his thirties looking up at him, and reflecting the one he has been. Thank you!

Thanks for this lovely view of Faramir. I've always thought that besides being a Ranger, he would be the more scholarly type. It's nice to see how history comes full circle too with Hallas at the end.

I have no words to express how I feel about this. It's simply beautiful. I love the comparisons between Faramir loving heroes, and children and teenagers and adults loving him. I love Faramir, I always have, and this is a wonderful expression of all the different types of hero-worship. I love the theme of the mothers, and the way Boromir acts. I love that he likes Isildur best. I think the true heroes really don't know that they are heroes. This is a little bit sad, and nostalgic, but it is *happy* as well. It makes me feel warm inside. It made me feel like crying. This is amazing, and it says so many things. I know this will forever be a favourite of mine.

I really enjoyed your story about Faramir! He's a lovely character and I felt you painted him very well. I felt you particulerly excelled when writing from the small child's point of view.
Thank you so much. I am thoroughly enjoying your stories.

Oh, that I could log in - I'd favourite this in a heartbeat. As it is, I shall content myself with a review and revisit this later.
A beautiful, simple, touching piece - thank you so much for writing and sharing this.

Great work...you really captured Faramir when he was four-and-three quarters!
| RndmPeep chapter 1 . 3/23/2015
Oh my heavens that was a beautiful piece. You captured Faramir's insecurities realistically and the thoughts as he aged. I love how you brought it fill circle with little Hallas, and I love how Faramir truly became a hero, especially in the eyes of a child centuries later. I feel like you captured the true sense of being a hero-what really matters. I think that Faramir (if he were real, of course) would love to be remembered in such a way. Great work.
| Tysan chapter 1 . 3/1/2015
A nice story. The children's voices especially are really fun. I like how you compare Elessar and Elendil. I like the hints of politics between the tutor and Denethor's disapproval that Faramir as a child is oblivious to. It's the fun of knowing something the protagonist doesn't.
I really enjoyed this. Thank you for sharing
| Guest chapter 1 . 2/28/2015
wow ... that was done in a great way. The voices matched the ages perfectly, and you made me really see them. I truly enjoyed reading this story! Thanks for posting.

All your stories are very well written, and a pleasure to read. This one is no exception. But I, too, prefer your more confident Faramir of the previous stories. I understand that the point actually is the hero feeling unsure of himself, but still the degree of his self doubts seem out of character to me.
