TolkienScholar chapter 1 . 7/6/2017
I love, love, LOVE this fic. It's absolutely perfect; I can HEAR every line in their voices as though they'd said every word. This line has Ian written all over it: "I think there might've been a few mountaineers up in the Himalayas who didn't hear about it in the first week." And this line just screams Ben: "and since I'm not considered a professional lunatic anymore, I've got some pull." You've captured his self-deprecating humor. Well done.

I love how easily and casually you treat the passage of time, not needing to over-explain things like Abigail's pregnancy and Riley's honeymoon, but merely dropping hints about them to show that time has passed and everyone has moved on. It's really effective.

But the real treat, of course, is how you portray the relationship between these two men. Ben's cautiousness in addressing him, their initial awkwardness, the recognition that Ben owes Ian something, and especially the fact that Ian shares Ben's enthusiasm in a way Riley never could. I love the idea of "a kid about to share the coolest toy ever with an old friend," and that moment of shared awe in the church building was a perfect thing to bring up here. And then I love how he concludes the recitation of the logistics with the fact that he "really had missed his friend."

This is a really well-written fic; I enjoyed it so much. Well done!

I loved it. I'm a huge fan of Ian, and this story was amazing! :) Do you think you might possibly continue it...?

YES! Ian and Ben being friendly to each other! You just made me really happy.

I don't know why, but I've always had an "Ian isn't that bad of a bad guy, really. I mean, Ben trusted him in the beginning..." thing. It's good to see the pair of them back to work together.

Ooh, Riley's on honeymoon? Who's the lucky gal? Is it that one chick from BoS?

Great story!

OMgosh, this was amazing! I so wish they would actually do this for a third movie! Lol, I am such a sucker for a good Ian fic.

Ben shoud totally take Phil and Powell with him too for this newest adventure D Alas, if only Shaw were still alive. I was glad you had Ben mentioned that, and how you made it clear that, despite their apparently glaring differences, he and Ian really do have a ton in common and make a formidable team.

You sure you wanna keep this a oneshot? ;-)

Thanks for the great little fic!

Very good, I loved it! I knew that Ian had to come back a some point, even though he wasn't in the second movie. Maybe there's hope for the third...
