| Nienor Niniel chapter 2 . 9/17/2005
Arwen, Eowyn and the children away? I fear evil things... And it's good that Faramir is taking care of Aragorn for a change.
Waiting for more, Nienor.

Great chapter, your stories are NEVER boring. There always awesome.
| Laerien chapter 2 . 9/17/2005
With this chapter I could really see the differences between the draft and the final version and certainly this was better. ;o)
I loved how Aragorn silenced the lords! Why does every council you write of end such way? :oD
I once read a story about forcing the daughter of A and A to marry Elboron! I couldn't believe it! After all those two went through for love that would be the last action they would do... I think both Aragorn and Arwen would die before forcing their children into unhappy marriage!
"Aragorn rose to his feet, his hand gripping the hilt of Anduril." I would write here something like "...the hilt of the Anduril as a silent warning" or whatever. It seems too...agressive of him to do what you suggest with this. ;o)
I am glad things are finally settled between the Aragorn and Faramir so much that a statement like this cannot disturb their friendship (longer then a few minutes).
However, I will tell you this, should it come to pass that he and your daughter were to love each other, they would have my blessing! I would be most happy if our children were to wed.” I was smiling ear-to-ear. :o)
Poor Aragorn... He really has rough days in your stories.
"The Queen had confided to him, that after so many years in the wilds, Aragorn found it difficult to sleep alone within the stone walls of the Citadel and would have vastly preferred to be under a hedge with the stars overhead for company." Just a favourite little thing. ;o)

I liked the opening scene very much. At least we can see a bit of the life in the White City. :o)Though I started to become annoyed by the silly arguement between the men, I was glad to have the interruption of the innkeeper, as he at least seemed to be grateful for the King.
"I’ve seen many lands while I was in the army and anyone could tell you that fevers are caused by the influence of the moon. Why, even a child knows that!" #coughing, head-shaking#
It is alright to have three (or four?) lord with lust for power, but it should be no more. I would welcome some lines about the others, stating that there are 'good' lords apart from Imrahil as well!
#sigh# I do not understand how could they endure this arguements. It is worse than a Math s, Literature or a French lesson... I can't wait to see what punishment they will receive at the end. :o)
It was a good thing to end the chapter here. I wondered how you will do this but you chose the best, I think.

Poor Aragorn, he seems so tired and all these Lords comimg and bothering him, when he has sick people... Good thing he has farimir, he's a good friens...

Yes, this is most unusual given your style. I'm SO sorry I haven't reviewed for so long, but my net's down. I'm using my mum's laptop now. I may not be able to read, review or update until it get's fixed, but I will continue to steal my mum's laptop with as much regularity as can be managed given her work.
I like this story. As I said, it's so far unusual and unique compared with the rest of the stories. This one's going to be all...well. I don't think this will deal with angst due to misunderstandings between people, we're sort of past that. Except for the Fara-Aragorn one in this chapter, which lasted for about two seconds, it does seem like you've jumped head on into REAL issues that our characters didn't create.
Once again you astound me with your description of over-the-edge Aragorn, and the council. Your knowledge of olden day politics is quite amazing. I can't wait for whatever you have in store for us! Keep writing!
| PNT chapter 2 . 9/16/2005
Great chappie! I love how caring Aragorn is to Arwen and Eldarion. It's so sweet...
Anyhow, I really hope you write more healing scenes, because you're really good at them. Maybe this could be a new kind of fever, one that keeps recurring and steadily weakens the body? If you have something better in mind, bu all means write it, but I just have an overactive imagination and love to bounce ideas off of people. Keep updating fast. I love this story already.
| QueenofFlarmphgal chapter 2 . 9/16/2005
God those lords are such...PIGS! I'm so glad that Aragorn told them off good and proper!
I also loved how Arwen had Faramir take care of Aragorn. He's so reckless with his own health!
But don't we all love that so much?
| Raksha The Demon chapter 2 . 9/16/2005
Aragorn must be very tired and stressed to say before Council that Elbeth's family, half of which comes from Faramir's brother, is unstable.
I love the idea of Aragorn and Faramir as roommates; putting up with each other's old socks and Aragorn's snoring. Though I guess they have servants to deal with the snoring. Still, it sounds like a sleepover for grownups! I can just see them eating snacks and guzzling ale in their nightshirts, reading pornographic Elf-poems or something...
Minor quibble - easily fixable - you mispelled Forlong as Furlong...

Another great chapter. I'm loving this story.
| Lhaewin chapter 1 . 9/16/2005
A very unexpected start to a story of yours, Linda, and and interesting one. Boromir had clandestinely married and he even has a daughter? I wonder how Aragorn will react on the suggestion to arrange a marriage between the two children.
Very nasty for the King and his Steward that their adversaries still refer to the events having happened to Faramir while he had been imprisoned.
| Julia chapter 1 . 9/16/2005
Whoa, this sequel is starting out really good! Sounds like there is whole heap o'trouble there in MT and Faramir and Aragorn are caught up in the thick of it. Those Lords, I tell ya, if there were guillotines in MT, I'd line 'em up and go all Madame DeFarge on them. But Aragorn probably wouldn't let me. I hate to see them badmouthing such a good King because he wants to stop the spread of the fever and because he cut some of their privileges to help the poor.
I do not know what Hanna is up to, and why she suddenly appears so sane, or whether or not she is just a pawn of the Lords, but I find it almost impossible to believe that Boromir would just up and marry some servant girl, no matter how pretty she was, and how drunk and horny he was. He would never go against Denethor, who certainly would NOT approve of the match, to put it mildly. I am very intrigued by this plot line, as well as by the others you have laid out, and cannot wait to see how things progress. Please update soon!
| Conuiren chapter 1 . 9/16/2005
Oh - interesting start. I was wondering if we would see Hanna and her daughter again - although I wonder just how much Hanna is her own woman rather than a pawn to be used by the rather less than respectful council.
I think the classic line of the chapter has to be the one spoken by the red faced man outside the tavern - “No, he was the one who tried to burn him alive!” the red-faced man replied impatiently, “ He would never have sent him to prison, though! Not his own son!” That made me laugh out loud as I could just imagine a group of drinkers coming out with something like that.
As for a new round of angst - I doubt that Aragorn or Faramir will enjoy it, but if it is anything like Burden of Guilt - I know that I will!
