I can't believe it's over! Your portrayal of Aragorn and Faramir is one of my favorites in the fandom. I really hope you continue the series. There are still so many ends to tie up, and so many options for new plots.

Where to begin? I guess I can only say that this is a wonderful capstone to a wonderful series. I'm sorry it's come to an end at last; I can't even begin to tell you the pleasure I've had reading and rereading the various pieces of the quartet, always waiting anxiously for the next update. These novels have been part of my life for so long...this should give you a small indication of the respect I accord your work: when I entered college two and a half years ago and they needed me to establish a secure computer networking password to handle e-mail, transcripts, etc. I totally blanked on what to use. The instructions said that it had to be complex, unique, and, above all, something important to me, something I would never forget. My eventual answer? A reference to something in A Web of Treason, a password I type every morning and night to this day as I go about my business. Your four long works are indeed complex, unique, and unforgettable, and they've meant a lot to my development as a reader, as a fan, and as a morally-sensitive and compassionate human being. A million thanks for all your hard work, and I look forward to seeing more of your pieces in the future. I myself am a fancier of lengthy novels, so your turning mainly to short stories makes me a little sad, but beggars can't be choosers, right? And I must admit, I can't wait to see what's up with the tubs of lard!
Cheers, and well done,

Oh, very nice story, thank you so much for sharing it with us! A very big journey it was. Congratulations on finishing it!

I find it hard to believe that your readers have not enjoyed this story as much as the others - it was as well-written and engaging. I have thoroughly enjoyed the ride, as much as one can enjoy a ride that includes so much pain and anguish. I may not have been reviewing all along, but I have followed your work for a very long time.
Nicely done. Brava!

This was a great story! Thank you for writing it!

Are you going to write one where Imrahil forgives Faramir? I kinda wanted to read that, too.

This arc of stories has been one of my all-time favorites and I'm horribly sad to hear that you plan on stopping with this one. I'm very glad you are going to write and I just hope that if the muse strikes you will keep on writing full length stories someday. Very well done, I look forward to the rest of your work.

Absolutely gorgeous ending.
It truly feels like an end, not just for this story, but for the entire story-arc it could well serve as a proper and well-rounded ending.
I have followed every single story you have written and indeed have most of them printed to bring along with me on the train and when I need to fly.
I am so happy they are truly reconsiled and that Faramir finally got the recognition he has deserved all his life. Very very nicely written and a brilliant idea with the two standarts next to each other.

Hopefully I'll be the first to congratulate you on concluding this fine story. It's been a long road, one that I've happily traveled and hate to see end; a wonderful journey of spiritual and physical rebirth. And of course, I love it that Aragorn and Faramir are now reconciled, their friendship stronger than ever.
| horsiegurl chapter 32 . 11/25/2008
I have read this story from the beginning. I am so sad that it is over. I am always excited when I have an alert for this story. I hope you do another story in this arc. This was my favorite story of all of the ones you have written.

I loved the scene with Aragorn's snores disturbing Faramir's sleep - you have a deft touch with comedy, which is so hard to write. And we're finally heading toward the conclusion of this very moving story...
| Annawen Ereiniel chapter 31 . 10/30/2008
I'm sorry to see the last of Tasariel and the rest of the villagers, but all good things must come to an end, as the saying goes. I remember from your previous stories that Aragorn snores, but the scene with him keeping Faramir awake was really funny. And the end of the chapter! I'm going to keep quiet about what I think so I don't spoil it for anyone reading the reviews, but I suspect I'm very much going to enjoy your next update, if Faramir is surprised by what I think he's surprised by. Great twist, I totally didn't see it coming, though I know you favor healing and happy endings.
P.S. I don't think I ever remembered to leave you a review for the previous chapter. I quite like that one as well, particularly the integration of real-world harvest traditions into Middle-earth; it was reminiscent of the feeling of cultural groundedness and depth in Raksha's "Burning the Old Year". In fact, I like it so much, I plan to re-read it this weekend as I celebrate an end-of-autumn holiday with my own community. Thank you!

Thank you! And in the least rude way possible, FINALLY! I'm so hooked on your stories. Just this afternoon I was driving home from university and I thought, "It's been so long since she's updated 'A Time To Reap'. I really hope she updates soon. I need a fix..." Ask and you shall receive, I guess! I hope you update soon again. I can't imagine how hard and time consuming it is to write stories like this, but please? For me? Oh, and I am enjoying your rewrite of Shadow and Thought. It's even better the second time around. Keep up the good work!

Ah, just lovely! Nice to read a chapter that has me smiling all the time :) And yet another revelation to look forward to! :D
