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'.

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).
| Tunip chapter 1 . 3/10/2011
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.

A moving and beautifully written story.
| Feafea chapter 1 . 2/24/2010
You wrote it very well! I could feel Aragorn's anguish. Keep writing more fics okay? :D
| Emily chapter 1 . 10/23/2009
Poor Aragorn. : ( He's so angsty here. That makes me sad. : ( The beginning of Meneldur's story was very well done, though. Very cute, and not quite so despairing. It makes me want to know what the story is. Thank you for writing this; it was very well done.
| RS1 chapter 1 . 10/8/2009
This is truly a wonderful story. I've always felt that the Dunedain got the short end of the stick. They are the forgotten heroes.
This story is truly a tribute to these unsung heroes. This just moved me to tears! You truly set the mood from the beginning to the end.
| Lirulin-yirth-k'aio chapter 1 . 10/4/2009
So sadly and beautifully written! I should find more and better words perhaps, but I can say onle that since now - I wlii remember...
| firefashion chapter 1 . 9/30/2009
This is a wonderfully written scene, all too well you capture the lifelong guilt of the commanding officer, who must send his troops to die. As well the difficulty of reconciling triumph, celebrated, with its personal cost and the grief of those that made victory possible. A good piece of fiction helps illuminate reality, and yours does that.
| Anova chapter 1 . 9/24/2009
As I cannot whistle no matter how hard I try, I will resort to a more conventional way of feedback
A beautifully written (your style is exceptional -sophisticated in a way that makes it very enjoyable to read) story in its several layers: easily grasping the complex relationship of a father and his son, the intimate atmosphere between a couple offering each other strength and consolation, but also the troubles of a man in charge very well aware of his duties.
That Aragorn still blames himself for the loss of his men after a longer time as king honours him. He might be more detached from them, but still does care a lot for his people, trying to serve and not merely rule them. I believe you depictured him as the noble king Tolkien introduced him to us. Your Arwen appears well-balanced against his troubled self- an affectionate, soothing voice of reason.
Thank you for writing,
| estelcontar chapter 1 . 9/23/2009
This is a most moving and poignant tale. I have always felt that the tragedy of Sarn Ford must have affected Aragorn powerfully exactly because he wasn't there, and had then no time to mourn those who had fallen. You've given us a very convincing version of how he must have felt. You've also given us a most tender and satisfying portrayal of the loving and close companionship between Aragorn and your most wise Arwen, and between Aragorn and Eldarion.
At last, but not at least, I really appreciated the tribute to the self-sacrificing lives of the Dúnedain of Arnor, who are, to my mind, the most overlooked and underappreciated characters in Tolkien's universe.
| black4minister chapter 1 . 9/23/2009
that was lovely, and a very good point. i always felt people don't take enough notice of the dunadain, but they truth is they started it all. and aragorn was thier cheif long before he was ever king of gondor. no one seems to remember all of the rangers who died. so this was a very nice stry to high light that point.
i do hope you write more like it,
