Lovely story! I enjoyed it!

That was lovely. Arathorn and Gilraen never get enough love, IMHO. I especially like the idea that there's was an arranged marriage of sorts. We know that Arathorn asked her parents for her hand and that her mother convinced her father to allow the match, but its really an assumption that they were courting and/or in love before that. This was a unique take on the couple, and it fit the story very well.

This is a cute little story _ and I have to say it's the first one I ever seen with Aragorn's mother. I always did wonder if elves had brithday or not, that would be something J.R.R. if he was still with us. Hope to read more.

Just recycling my MEFA review... ;-)
This is a good idea for a story, executed to a high standard. The star motif is well handled. I liked it that Gilraen had old-fashioned notions like being contented in an arranged marriage and feeling honoured about her husband's status. The frame added another dimension to the tale, since it is set at a time when Arathorn is already deceased. This makes the moment of loving interaction between them all the more poignant.

Congrats on winning, Linda. This was a beautiful piece of work, and I enjoyed the read about Arathorn and Gilraen.

Lovely. Short, sweet, and an interesting look into a new character's psyche- by 'new' character I mean one you haven't really looked at before. This was a nice read.

A lovely Aragorn birthday tribute; with an unusual take on the May-December romance of his parents. And a great tie-in with shooting stars, too!

Perfect vignette, and just in time for Aragorn's birthday, too... I can't think of a single suggestion for improvement. Thanks, Linda!
