I don't know if you will ever read this review considering how long it has been since you completed this story but I just had to write this review. This was one of the best boromir alive stories that I have read. The characterisation and the plot was spot on. I was sort of sad to have finished it. Have you ever considered writing a sequel to it? I would love to read boromir get a romantic happy ending. I have to confess I was hoping eowyn would choose boromir.
Anyway I hope you would consider writing a sequel.

Thank-you for this enjoyable, well-written, epic tale. I love this Boromir! I think it is worthy to be published. I was lucky to get to read it in a week. Mahalo, Leilani

What a lovely story. I was sad to see that Eowyn wasn't actually betrothed to anyone, but I appreciate that you left it open, and indeed I feel that this was most true to all of the characters. It makes me wonder what they would think if they could actually see/meet canon LOTR verse. What would they think of the changes there? Of course, I think it would be years down the road that anyone would be able to see the big effects of the change, but it makes for an interesting thought nonetheless.
Thank you for the wonderful story. :D

When you started pushing Boromir and Eowyn together (quite naturally, btw, nicely done) I will admit I was not happy. Not that (again) you portrayed it poorly, but more in that I'm a sucker for canon pairings. It makes me happy to see Faramir is at least in the running. I could accept Boromir in that case. :)

I have to say that both Denethor and Faramir were thoroughly worked over by Peter Jackson. Of the two of them, I think Faramir had it worse, but then he was my favorite character...I was SO disappointed when I watched Two Towers and got...THAT. *grumbles under breath* I love what you've done with Boromir and Denethor in this particularly. So far this has been nothing short of spectacular. :D

I really enjoyed this story.
Any story containing a resurrection does require a leap of faith. But that was the only leap this story called for. It twisted and turned in a delicate pattern around the canon as opposed to striking a completely different course.
I am glad that I started reading it after it was complete though. I'm not sure I could stand a nine year wait to know how it was finished.

Your idea is very good, and I like your writing style, and your grammar/punctuation/structure are good. Now to the problems I have with it:
-They both say "gods damn it", or refer to the gods. Gondorians are not polytheists. The Valar are not gods, they are servants of the One, Illuvator. He is the only God Middle Earth. Remember, Tolkien was a very devout Christian.
-You write Boromir and Faramir a like they grew up in Westeros, not Middle Earth. Faramir in particular was not one for swearing or losing his temper.
-Boromir did not despise Aragorn, or have any difficulty with him during the journey of the Fellowship, and hand-waving away his canon deathbed oath of allegiance to Aragorn doesn't change that.
Boromir's return doesn't really seem to change anything, which makes me wonder whether this is really worth the effort you put into it.

Ok so I just stumbled upon this. I'm maybe less than a quarter of the way through the 1st chapter, so help me if this little green dude goes "I'm old Greg, want some Bailey's" in a cheesy British accent. I'm done, so done, with fanfiction period. Hopefully, it won't go down that way. Actually if that is how this story goes down fantastic, you've made my night. Boromir and old Greg omg just thank you for real. That visual image shall forever from hence day for shall have me randomly giggling at the most awkward moments.

Wow. This is one of the best Boromir A/U fanfiction I have ever read! I am so glad that this story is already a completed one; otherwise, I would have been waiting and wondering about the next chapters for the 10years that it took to finish the story. Still, this fanfiction is one worth waiting for. It was such a pleasure to read a gem like this. I read a good number of fanfictions focusing just on Boromir's survival (or resurrection) and I dare say this was the best one with so many good subplots and believable portrayal of all characters! I thank you for your writing talents and for having provided me with a good winter vacation read! I thoroughly loved your portrayal of Boromir and Faramir and particularly enjoyed the Council scene where people debated the merits of the return of a king. It was a such a fresh perspective that I have never thought of until I read this fanfiction. So realistic it is that there would have been oppositions within Gondor itself against a foreign king's return! I don't know why that has never come across my mind when I read the LotR series. ... probably because of the pro-Aragorn stance of the JRRT. So at the risk of being a heretic, I daresay that your account is much better than that of the canon. Thanks again for writing up a believable alternative universe that is more palatable than the original !

Hey, IDIOT! Maybe you should give something more than a BIOTCH fest for the 22 chapters you enjoyed before signing into fanfiction dot net for some effing FREE entertainment that you enjoyed BEFORE chapter 23! DIPHEAD! If you’re spending TWENTY THREE CHAPTERS of reading the thing and THEN getting SO UPSET at someone making a choice different from what YOU wanted to make.
Maybe you should write your OWN GD story if you’re so pissed. But NO! The problem with YOU is? You need to join the effing PEACE CORPS so you can see how AWESOME your life is! ARSE HOLE!
YOU, StoryReigns96, wasted your OWN GD time while perusing this hardworking entertainer by complaining about this work you enjoyed FOR FREE! How about you get your head out of your ARSE and give some quality time to something you give a darn about? Will you? I DOUBT IT!
