To add something small, if not large in itself, to your prodigious number of reviews, may I say this:
Your fiction, this fiction, touched me as no other fiction has yet to do.
Thank you. Please continue to inspire others with the surreality of the story you have painted as you have inspired me.

I rejoice that Aniror appears to have accepted Eowyn as one to care for husband and child.
| Larner chapter 24 . 11/26/2008
A gentle ending to the story, and a grief he realizes he never loved his first wife after all. But reassuring for the two of them now together.

Faramir lost so much in this war, but also found so much. And the child stays!
| Larner chapter 22 . 11/26/2008
Good decision, I think.

Say rather a tragic character.
The mixture of book and movie-verse has been interesting. Book-verse this battle took place in the early spring of 1419, Shire Reckoning; and the Ringbearers left Middle Earth in the autumn of 1421. Movie-verse they left approximately four years after Sam and Rosie's wedding, which book-verse took place May 1, 1420 SR. And I've noted you chose movie-verse Helm's Deep and coloring for Boromir and Faramir rather than book-verse.
I am so glad that Aniror did love Faramir and he came to love her as well ere the end. And I think Eowyn is realizing this, and is partly glad for it in spite of her natural alarm.

Yes, it appears she has come to care for her husband, and she either foresees her own death or intends to die. Alas!
I've noted several times this is movie-verse, and the interview with Denethor is definitely that. I find I feel a good deal of compassion for her. And now for Faramir to be asked to give up his son! I'd wondered if that was why Aniror's sister had come.

A moment of sorrow. She's felt her captain die, and grieves for it, seeks to return to her own folk and is forestalled. Now, she sees her husband leave her perhaps for the last time. That he shall survive but she die is something I suspect neither expect.

The child's aunt, then? Come to him at last?
Love the encounter with Gandalf and Pippin.
| Larner chapter 16 . 11/26/2008
And this is good to see, too.
| Larner chapter 15 . 11/26/2008
And the two of them dealt with the grief together.
| Larner chapter 14 . 11/26/2008
I do see the romantic love at last making itself known. And I suspect that as Faramir does discuss Aniror he does help to lay her ghost and release the anger and resentment.
Love seeing the child swimming in the autumn leaves.

Poor Boromir continues to hold to his lack of trust, which is a pity, I think. I can understand. And slowly we learn the truth of the matter, and what it was that wounded her-not necessarily what took her to Rivendell, but what she brought back from there-unrequited love-or lust?
