| Tristan-the-Dreamer chapter 1 . 4/12/2008
Different from any other fanfic I've read concerning death...soft, calm, but still painful. One question-where is Arwen?
| StarlightSkies chapter 1 . 1/14/2008
Wow, that was amazingly done. I loved it, seriously i have tears in my eyes! ] Great Job with the story ]
| icedragonchilde chapter 1 . 5/23/2007
AUGGHH! So! Depressing! gyargle! Why do you delight in torturing my poor, fragile emotions? *runs away sobbing*
(and, despite your claims, this is still amazingly good. Way better than anything I could do even now. *deep sigh*)

I read it and I like it...
| TheRowan chapter 1 . 1/1/2004
this story has beautiful flow and style, and a lot of emotion. it is much less dramatic than many accounts of aragorn's passing - this, i feel, is how it would have been. it is simple and sweet. the characters are perfect. well done.
i can see why you did not include arwen; this is a story of fellowship and she would not really have fitted. however, perhaps you should have made reference to her. i dont know. this is a great story the way it is
| Doranwen chapter 1 . 9/9/2003
Well, at least you admitted it. Did you, perchance, read The Grey Company's FAQ, or what they were all about? For the information of you and everyone who will read this, The Grey Company is an RPG group who borrowed Tolkien's languages, using elements from both Quenya and Sindarin, and creating some vocabulary of their own to flesh it out. Note that this is NOT Tolkien's Elvish-either language, as people who constantly refer to one or the other as just Elvish are either misinformed or ignorant (or both). There are two distinct Elvish languages that have been developed enough to use in such things as this (Noldorin is a bit small and the others impossible), Sindarin and Quenya, and The Grey Company's Elvish is neither. It is extremely bad form to use it in Tolkien fanfic (and true Tolkien fans are turned off by it, though I suppose those who haven't researched it for themselves won't know any better). A MUCH better source for Tolkien's languages is the Ardalambion, which you can find in a simple search. The Council of Elrond ( .com) has a good workbook and dictionary for Sindarin (one of the best Sindarin sites out there-unfortunately there are few as most students mistakenly think that Quenya is the language all elves spoke in), and a few Quenyan resources too.
That is the only complaint I have about the story-the rest is really good, actually. Get rid of the 'Net Elvish and you have a great fic.
| Nietta chapter 1 . 5/29/2003
Again, it was great
LoL, I'm just goin' round, readin' all ya stories, hee hee!
That was sad... touching... i'm kinda lost for words, its sad... dont like sad but its good sad... but bad sad at same time...
| Angel chapter 1 . 3/3/2003
Melancholic but not drenched in woe and so it had a definite lilt to it.
How fitting that Legolas and Gimli should bid him off so, my only regret is that Arwen was missing.
Sigh, it most definitely was NOT a waste of time to read it, thank you for sharing that with us, makes the passing of the King not quite as final and mournful.
| Runaround chapter 1 . 2/27/2003
dammit, you've made me cry.
| Chianna chapter 1 . 1/6/2003
I read a few stories with this same theme. This one is exceptional for its elegance and simplicity.
| Chimbo Baggins chapter 1 . 7/29/2002
oh, sad. made me cry. it was very good and pretty accurate except that Awen was the one who was with Aragorn when he died. but thats all, and who cars about her anyway? ( I never really liked her all that much and her role in the movie postitvely infuriated me). very excellent.
| Mainframe chapter 1 . 6/6/2002
You made me ball! Infact I'm still crying as I write this and now I can't stop!
You are a very brilliant writer, I hope you will use such skill for maybe a hobbit fic? A cheerful one? I love your work so much, but I gotta go now my nose id runnin down my chin and my friend wants to know what's up.
Great stuff! Now I can't see the friggin screen!
| Honesty chapter 1 . 4/12/2002
Beautiful ... just beautiful.
| Me chapter 1 . 4/7/2002
I'm very proud of you you did a good job little Watermellon!
| Jevvica chapter 1 . 4/4/2002
Beautifully done. So sad, but lovely all the same. I another chapter describing Gimli and Legolas' leaving would have been cool, but...still...beautiful:)
