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!

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.

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?

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.

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!

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!

Glad you're back with a new story, Linda. I loved your last 2 stories.
Aragorn's rule is ethical and admirable but I can well imagine that the rich Lords would prefer a ruler who was less concerned about "sharing the wealth".
Faramir is right to be suspicious about the truth of Boromir's marriage. Boromir would not marry an insane, homocidal peasant such as Hanna.
I think that it is time that Aragorn reveals his full power and majesty to these Lords! He has been too eager to be their friends, yet is a man of unparalled puissance and strength of will when he chooses to be.
I like Imrahil. He at least is a Lord with some sense!
I suspect some of the other Lords realise how matters really lie, but they are wary of speaking up because they are afraid of being seen as the King's pet or a crony. They might also be afraid of Lord Lamedon; after all he seems to be a very forceful personality.
Also, I think some of the Lords like Lord Lamedon might be jealous that Aragorn's 2 best friends on the council both have princedoms (Ithilien and Dol Amroth), whereas Lebennin, Lamedon etc. are just fiefdoms.
Lamedon's suggestion at the end of the chapter smacks of a devious plot to grasp the throne. I smell a rat.
Eagerly awaiting next installment! Happy writing!
Love and hugs,
