poor Farmir and Boromir, they don't know that they're going to have such sad lives, (until Faramir *SPOILER WARNING*

marries Eowyn) :'(

We! It's me again. Not trying to earn points at all... No, ma'am. Just doing what I should have done when you first posted this fic :-)

The simplicity of this story is perhaps its best feature. I love it. Everyone knows the mischief two boys can find on any day, and, with the knowledge of who they will grow to be, their simple game is transformed into a wonderful statement of how they started along their paths. Lovely!

I find the fact that Boromir is the one to place the hat on Faramir particularly interesting. It definitely shows his care for his younger brother, as he apparently places the fun and contentment of Faramir above himself. Furthermore, perhaps we see a bit of wisdom in young Boromir play, as he gives Faramir a role that requires thinking over prowess in weaponry (a value that Faramir comes to believe in strongly as he grows older). Very cool.

Finally, Gandalf is awesome, as usual. Grandfatherly and wise. "I think there is punishment enough in the embarrassment of being caught." Truer words were never spoken!

Not to mention the image of Faramir in Gandalf's oversized hat! Can we say adorable?

Yet another excellent story for your collection. You rule :)

Cheers!

Nat,

Hey there, my friend!

I finally stopped looking at the graphics at TOE and started actually reading more of the stories, and this one is one of my favorites!

You know, it's funny and cute, and rings so true not only to children but to these two in particular, but there are layers to the story and hints at things that are so much in their characters and in what we know will come.

It's actually very complex. You have Boromir overshadowing/overpowering Farmir here, you have the whole symbolism of Faramir selecting the wizard's hat while Boromir wields the sword, and then the last line especially was funny, but also a little chilling.

Very, very effective. Very, very engaging. And I find myself glad that I have many more of your stories to enjoy here.

And as far as favorite author lists...right back at you babe!

Aw, that was so sweet! And so rare: a non-angsty Finduilas story! Nicely written, indeed.
