| Sarcasticles chapter 1 . 9/19
So many forgotten heroes forgotten...I have a brother who was in the army whose commanding officer was killed in action, so this hits a little close to home. Gah, such angst, but at least there's peace at the end
| I'm Hermes chapter 1 . 8/17
A sobering but beautiful story of the dark side of leadership. I was reminded of DS9's Captain Sisko in "The Ship", where he was remembering each of the officers who'd died that day. Sad and beautiful.

Never forget Sarn Ford
| Number Girl chapter 1 . 3/17/2016
Ai, that is a fair story, and sad. Tis beautiful indeed.
| wotumba1 chapter 1 . 9/22/2015
it is good to remember those who have gone before us...
| PSW chapter 1 . 9/3/2015
Yes, he would be a good storyteller - written down or no... :-)
| Artura chapter 1 . 11/21/2014
This moved me to tears.

The horror of the rangers deaths is very vividly depicted in Aragorn's words 'Without succour or dignity or hope'. As well as the bleakness of their lives 'worthless to the world they helped save'. I love his loyalty to his people.
Aragorn's feelings because of his words to Eldarion are a little bit overdone. There are one too many looks of anguish, horror and misery on his face. His insistence that none remember his men is a little weak. He is the King, he can commission songs, memorials and statue's if it bothers him so much and surely the Arnorians sing of their one encounter with the Nazgul. That's a nitpick however as otherwise we would not have the conversation between Arwen and Aragorn, so beautifully balanced between his angst amd her gentle practicality .

I remember. Always

| DeepRootsAerNotReached chapter 1 . 8/18/2013
Oh, adorable adorable ADORABLE! This is so perfect! I love the characterizations, the memories...! 'tries to be a little more constructive, but only goes "aaaw" instead'.
| Saum the Smol Teddy chapter 1 . 5/26/2013
Jolly good... I love stories centered on Aragorn's kinship in the north
| MP brennan chapter 1 . 3/19/2013
This was lovely and very poignant. I love the way you begin and end with Eldarion's more innocent point of view.
| Ithilium chapter 1 . 3/19/2011
This was beautiful. Very vivid in emotion. I loved your conversation between Aragorn and Arwen, because you reflected the concept of their companionship, their understanding of one another (especially in Arwen).
Your narrative style is very good; beautiful imagery, and wonderful grammar ;)
The dialogue is also very good, for you have kept the cultural aspect of the language of those days.
All in all, a wonderful piece (though I'm not surprise, for all your work is superb).

Yet another beautiful tale from you Canafinwe.
A lovely portrayal of a young Eldarion and his father. If it was anyone other than Aragorn and I would find it hard to believe that Eldarion had reached the age of 3 before experiencing his father's wrath, but then Aragorn has had many decades to learn patience and self control.
'I am his father, and it is my sacred charge to protect him, not to burden him with my pains. I have failed in my duty.' I imagine this is exactly how he would react, as he would exact impossibly high standards on himself that he would expect of no other. As you so succinctly put - ' so merciful towards others and so pitiless towards himself.' I am glad he has Arwen as the voice of wisdom and common sense and I am delighted with her solution.
Finally thank you for honouring the unsung heroes of Sarn Ford.
