Farawyn has to get better. I wonder if she got sick in the garden and no one noticed. I don't think it has anything to do with the dragons.

Excellent chapter, I can't wait for more!

Dear Linda: This is a very intense chapter! The plot moved swiftly and the dialogue is very well written. I am glad that you made note of the fact that King Elessar loves his daughter as well as his son, and does not dismiss her importance because she is "just a girl." Cheers for Faramir for telling Sulion that, in no uncertain terms! Sulion may actually have believed he was offering words of consolation-the girl child might be dying, but the boy, who is the important one, is still alive. I wonder if it is some kind of poison. I certainly don't believe it is a curse, dragon-inspired or otherwise, although I understand Aragorn's agitation. With his child at the point of death, a father will grasp at even a crazy explanation. I can hardly wait for the next chapter. Thanks for writing and posting this. Sincerely, Darkover

Squee! I love that poem. And now you must go out to the 'net and find Loreena McKennitt singing it, you'll love it, she sets it to beautiful music and sings it perfectly. It made me cry the first time I heard it. I bet it's on youtube. But I digress.
Your chapter about made me cry too. I don't ever think we've seen Aragorn and Arwen that grief-sick and angry and bitter with each other. And poor Aragorn thinking he's cursed because of the things he had to do in order to help free ME from Sauron's grip.
Ok, helping voice, that's good! Looking forward very much to the next chapter!

Mysterious chapter. Poor Farawyn! What happened with her? Maybe she is allergic for some plant? Maybe... but... I don't know.
Tien Li was very rude, but he did'nt understand.
I hope someone will help poor Farawyn...
Please, update soon.

Ok so more dragons that are friendly. Arwen came back but Farawyn is sick. That is not good news. Faramir isn't sick like Farawyn is he?
Linda you do like to beat up on your characters don't you.

Thank You, Linda. I'll wait and I'll wait and...
Ufff! When the riders greeted (I am not sure with this grammatic's form)Aragorn and Faramir I felt... ufff... yes, relieved!
Emperor's son, wow! Like in China... Dragon's progeny... Celestial Beings.../babble/
What happened with Farawyn, I am worried. Poor girl... I hope You'll update soon.
Chinese medicine was older than European and more... advanced. Maybe something from Fu Nung' country will help little Farawyn?
If it will be that, Arwen's point of wiev will change, I am sure.
And Faramir's and Aragorn's shock and trembled knees... Wonderful!
I am sorry for every mistake in vocabulary or English grammatic and - greetings from Poznań!

Dear Linda: As usual, this chapter was enjoyable to read. Sulion remains an interesting and amusing character. The new dragons and their riders/companions, along with their colorful gifts, were a welcome addition to the tale. Your portrayals of Aragorn and Faramir are as well-written as ever, and I particularly enjoyed the h/c passages in which Aragorn used his healing techniques to ease Faramir's pain and tension. All that, and you have ended the chapter on a cliffhanger-very good writing! I happily await the next chapter. Thanks for writing and posting this one. Sincerely, Darkover
