| Alm.Tree chapter 19 . 7/8
What a lovely lovely story! My only wish is that they eventually found a copy of LOTR, just so that Boromjr could know all was well and that Faramir was happy in the end. I feel like that would have made his decision to stay far more believable. But I still enjoyed this!

oh to be a stupid little American that thinks 9/11 is the height of warfare and playacts like a victim of war rather than the perpetuator of it \3

What a difficult ending- I know you mean it to be really happy, but I just can't get over Boromir never making it home, when his home is such a big part of his identity! That was the one thing in the whole story that seemed out of character- but hey, he was happy in the end, Morgan was happy in the end, and I'll just have to deal with it lol.
I liked the story a lot- it was a lot of fun to read! If I manage to write Boromir half as well I'll be really proud :D

Oh man he was practicing compliments in his head for her? That's so sweet and awkward and I love it.
Also- I still want him to go back to Gondor! I want him to reunite with Faramir and see the rest of the Fellowship again- you're killing me here!

I'm glad they managed to find a job for Boromir- but I still want him to get back home! I'm so torn- let him get back to Gondor and still have a happy ending, I' you

Aaaah! His "I am a man" speech, holy crap. I'm all giddy now- how did you manage to make him sound so romantic without him actually mentioning a single romantic thing?

I can't express how much I'm enjoying this story. Your version of Boromir is just so much fun to read about, and the conversations are all done so well!

"This is a most wondrous Honda!" And now I'm going to snap my ribs from laughing, thank you so much. Boromir's always given me golden retriever vibes, so him sticking his head out the car window is about as in character as anything can possibly be :)

Poor Boromir- save him, Morgan! This is all written so well- it all feels very realistic, or at least the way I would imagine things going down in this situation. And Boromir is really in character, to the point where this feels like an indepth character study of him- which is right up my alley!

So many emotions! His reaction to her car (calling them all hondas, bless his heart) was great, but then you did a 180 and really tugged at my poor shriveled heartstrings in the hospital. "He trusted her unwaveringly. He would stay." Poor guy! I can't even blame Morgan, because what else could she do?
| Scylla's revenge chapter 4 . 6/3/2021
I admit I don't like the implication that Morgan was ogling the poor guy when he was unconscious (it feels icky and doesn't hold up super well now). But your description of him trying to be all noble and calm as he's trying to leave her house and then having trouble working a doorknob- that's comedy gold

I love this! I know I'm-let me see-a good 13 years late to the party, but I'm loving this so far! You captured Boromir's way of speaking really really well- it's a joy to see him raving at poor Morgan about all kinds of sexist whatnot. Here's hoping she knocks some sense into him real quick.

Rereading this story again for the umpteenth time. This is one of my all time favorites. You should write as a professional. This story has a Debbie Macomber sort of vibe.
