Beautiful-especially the last line.

Dear Linda: I can't believe I haven't reviewed these drabbles before. Not surprisingly, each one is a jewel in its own right. The first was sweet, and the reader could just feel Aragorn's longing. The second, third, and fourth all had a visions-of-things-to-come quality that I greatly enjoyed. I sometimes wonder if Aragorn's years as Thorongil might have been a case of "it was the best of times, it was the worst of times" for him. He seems to have been a very popular leader, clearly had the trust and the affection of Steward Ecthelion, but it must have been frustrating to be so close and yet so far. In the second drabble, I wonder if Boromir's nurse was still in Minas Tirith years later, when the king returned? And did she remember that moment, and make the connection? I agree with your sentiments in the third drabble-Aragorn would not have wanted to hurt Ecthelion-but he would not have wished to start a civil war, either, which probably would have been the result of putting forth his claim to the throne. As for the fourth drabble-yet another bone of contention between Denethor and his younger son! What can I say about it, except that it is beautifully written? Thanks for writing and posting these brief fics. Sincerely, Darkover

Not always a good thing to know what is coming, and Denethor would have felt threatened, true enough.
| Deandra chapter 3 . 11/27/2010
Hmmm, I hadn't ever thought about whether he might have claimed the throne sooner, but that is a possibility. Interesting view of things.
Thorongil, through, after sharing a single tankard - should be "though"

Oooh, I like this. Very...boding. And very fitting.
| Virtuella chapter 3 . 11/23/2010
Ahhh, noble all the way to the toes. ;-)

I like these drabbles. Quick little insights into the characters. Poor Faramir never had a chance.

'That rascally scoundrel?' For some reason that phrase tickles me absolutely pink. Perhaps it has something to do with it being applied to Aragorn. : D
Denethor. *shakes head* He always has to ruin everything. Poor Finduilas. I wonder what she thinks is happening to her husband while they play a more dignified version of 'hot potato' with the latest addition to the family.

It seems Faramir and his father were off to a bad start from the beginning. The image of Denethor rocking little Faramir in his arms would have been so sweet, but it is just like Denethor to ruin it right away. It's so sad that power was always more important to Denethor than love.
| Silivren Tinu chapter 3 . 11/22/2010
Poor Ecthelion! I'd love to think he at least suspected the truth, though - the alternative would be so sad.
| JuliaAurelia chapter 4 . 11/21/2010
Just another of the many moments that made Denethor the man who would burn himself and his son alive. Cursed sockpuppets!
| JuliaAurelia chapter 3 . 11/21/2010
Loved it. Also, Sockpuppets!
| Animekitty47 chapter 2 . 11/17/2010
The first one is...sweet isn't really the right word...is there something that's between that and elegance? XP The second story is definately cute. Excellent moment. XD
| Silivren Tinu chapter 2 . 11/17/2010
Now that's perfectly Boromir - I can just imagine him being like that as a child. ;-) Hehe, I wonder if the nursemaid ever learned Thorongil's real identity!
