|Reviews for In Aragorn's Safekeeping|
| Rhyselle chapter 35 . 1/17/2007
I found your stories about three days ago and dove into this one. In brief, I have truly enjoyed reading it.
The flow and wording were very well done, I noticed no obvious typos and only a few minor grammar issues within dialogue (which can be excused as very few people actually speak using perfect grammar! *grin*). The POV used was consistent and focused, which made reading the story and being able to stay in the heads of the two visitors very easy for me. The characterization of Aragorn was wonderful. You were consistent throughout in how you presented him and he felt "real" and not a "superhero", if that makes sense.
I thought that your choice of having Rebecca and Thomas come from the 1950s was quite good. They came to Middle Earth before LOTR was published in the United States and it was a great improvement over most other "Tenth (or Eleventh) Walker" stories, in which people who go to Middle Earth and join the quest knew about LOTR. I liked seeing how you kept Rebecca and Thomas' speech patterns appropriate to the 1950s and avoided anachronisms in the things they spoke of when they talked about their contemporary earth.
Your grasp emotions and behaviors, and how people react to trauma and being put in stressful and strange places and activities is exemplary and I admire how you were able to get us inside the protagonists' heads and hearts.
There were so many moments in the tale that touched my heart and made me smile and weep and laugh out loud that I can't delinate them one by one. But I have to mention how very, very much the moments when Thomas and Rebecca, respectively, called Aragorn "father" for the first time just made me tear up and smile. I had to stop reading for a little bit when that happened just so I could enjoy the satisfaction those scenes made me feel.
I am putting this on my favorite's list and I also have recommended it to other LOTR fanfic readers that I know, including my twin sister, dancingkatz, who also writes LOTR fanfic here on FFN. I look forward to your continuation of the story of Thomas and Rebecca in Minas Tirith as part of Aragorn's family, as you are able to add to it. Now I'm going to go read the tale of Aragorn and Halbarad. I fully expect that I will enjoy that as much as I have enjoyed this one.

wow, i really loved this sotry! not many people are able to write a 'Person falls into middle earth' story with a really plausible excuse to have them join teh felloship, and you came up with a great way to integrate them. well done!

Hy! Just wanted to let you know that I re-started on your story. :)
So, when do the twins and Halbarad appear? hihi

I truly loved reading this story! You made a good job! Which I can not say for others AU story's, exept for very few...
What I don't understand is that Thomas fel in love in a short time. I know that this is like 'love at first site' but with a problem like theirs, I think that a person sticks with his feelings and fears first ( a bit selfisch but it's true). I mean nothing really happend between them, they just were for each other.
I will be looking forward the new story!

Great to see you and this story again! I like the fact they aren't falling in love for any of the people of ME. Or that they are the ones who changed everything not the orginal 9. Although there are some good ones out there, it just kind of nice to see an original story is all. :)
