M. Nice chapter. You write Faramir very well - his intense love for Aragorn, his fear that the world is unbalanced with Aragorn in mortal danger, his identification of Aragorn with his father and brother - and you do it without weakening Faramir's character.
Aragorn, who is still every inch the King, even in pain, and knows the Realm must be provided for, is also well-written.
I love black-haired, grey-eyed Faramir; no complaints here!

Wow, an excellent story. My favourite bit was Éowyn yanking down Éomer's breeches and your reference to her treating her boys. That was priceless. Mom taking over, Éomer had no chance to resist. :D
So when's the next chapter ready?

Love it. Naked back in the first chapter, and taking off wet clothes in this one.
Oh, and the story is good as well. I love the relationship between Aragorn and Faramir, and the picture you portray of family life in Ithilien.

This is a wonderful story,heartrending and full of emotion. I love update soon as I want to know if Aragorn recovers !

Well, I guess it's OK considering it's not a ginger haired Faz...: ) I'm still picturing DW though, cant help it!

ah. there is much to be commended in this chapter. i like the many sides of Faramir, the worried Steward, the younger brother, loving husband, tired man prioritizing his duty, and the Captain of the Rangers. i think i'm missing some, but u get it.
yea! aragorn awoke! like the connection between the King & His Steward, and how Faramir is so worried, and that, despite their differences, they both love Gondor so. sometimes Aragorn even reminded Faramir of Denethor and he didn't like that...
u had me REALLY worried when Faramir came back, drenched to the bone, w/o Eomer, and i like how u characterized him too, cursing softly but fervently under his breath.
love the boys, Bron taking charge! Orc captain to level Minas Tirith-Eomund...

Excellent again. Your grasp of the friendship between Aragorn and Faramir is particularly good. The suspense is nuilding very well (though I dread to think to what point - I keep getting visions of them having to flee the flood in the middle of the night, and having to wrestle Aragorn into a cart) Keep up the good work.

Wow, a lot of work went into this chapter didn't it? Very dramtic beginning to the story!
Things I thought worked particularly well:
1) Eomer naming his dog Grima. I absolutely believe he would do something like that!
2) Faramir's reasoning for not going with Aragon & Eomer. Other than wanting to be with his wife he would be sensitive to their need to have some "down time" - when they could be just men and not kings.
3) The moment when Eowyn is faced with having to risk Aragon's life to save it and she realizes how much she owes him.
On the humorous side I thought the bit about Eowyn being jealous of Eomer's hair and her moments of "tending to him" were particularly funny!
Fabulous beginning - can't wait to see where you go with it!

tihs is really good. captivating.
althought, really...groin? i hope you don't actually mean...well, lets just say that i love aragorn too much to wish for anything of that sort to happen.
otherwise, excellent, can't wait for more :)

I am glued to my seat! UPDATE!
| Fionnabhair Nic Aillil chapter 1 . 6/26/2004
I really enjoyed this - it was humourous and dramatic. Your characterisation of Éowyn, Faramir et al is very engaging - I'm just dying to see what happens next. Between an eight months pregnant Éowyn, flooding and an injured Aragorn you've managed to create a lot of suspense - I hope you update soon.

Well I was sitting down feeling all kind of fluffy and mellow and then you changed the atmosphere totally with some drama - great stuff!
I loved this bit...
"You can stay up reading all night if you like." Her tone made clear exactly her feelings should he decide to do so." We know who wears the trousers in that family!
Should someone explain to Faramir and Eowyn that they aren't rabbits?
Oh yes..and I've been quite unsettled by the thought of Faramir's naked back...
Very enjoyable - as always. Very well written - as always.
