I. Absolutely. Love this story. I put it in my favorites awhile ago because at the time I couldnt read it all the way but I loved the beginning so much I just places it in my favorites anyway. This is ultimately my go to story whenever I'm bored and need to kill time or when I just want a good read. But thing that gets me everytime without fail, even though its amazing like it is right now, is this overwhelming feeling to read the sequel. Unless youve already done that and I just havent found it yet. I love it as it is... but at the same time I'm curious about what happens next. I really would love to know haha ) but alas I know you probably are done with this story. but im sure im not the only one who would love to read it if you did make one
have an amazing day!

Wow. This was incredible. You made me cry at the beginning, I felt so sorry for faramir. You really captured how cruel and unforgiving his father is. I like that he finally was able to free himself from his father and make his own way without worrying about pleasing him. You write very well, you managed to keep the writing in the style of lotr without it being too confusing or awkward. This was especially well done with the love scenes as I find a lot of writers tend to let a lot if modern phrases in that seem out if place.

This story was beautifully written. I love how it really captured Faramir's struggle to accept all of himself (his desire for men and specifically his desire for Eomer). I haven't read an Eomer/Faramir story before, but I'm glad that I read this because it definitely made me a fan of this pairing. I also loved the bond between Boromir and Faramir. I'm a sucker for strong bonds between siblings, and I loved that they both tried to protect each other throughout the story (as all siblings should). I'm a middle child myself, so I have the best of both worlds-being oldest and youngest, and while most people have this idea that it should always be the older sibling protecting the younger one, I think that in reality siblings with good bonds protect each other. I'm fiercely protective over my older sister as well as my younger brother, and I love how your story captured that kind of sibling relationship.

Love this story. I'd love a sequel to see where life takes them... hint hint, nudge nudge. But really, a great story of self-realization.

Holy Toledo! This was awesome! I was totally taken in by this lovely story, good sensory detail. I liked your Eomer too, you got that "good guy" vibe he has down really well. Cheers and thanks for writing!

This has such emotional depth that I was left rather breathless. You've beautifully weaved together several different elements and left me very satisfied with the result, a beautiful work.

This is a beautiful story. I can't even begin to describe how into it I got, the characterization, the plot... thank-you so much for that!

I love it! So awsome. And screw denethor the arsehole, never liked him. Faramir/Eomer are so cute together, never noticed before. Lol. Bye.

I must say, I was a bit unsettled by the use of "present" to write the story and almost gave up after the first paragraph. However, I'm glad I continued because it is a good tale and I enjoyed reading it. I'm more into darker stuff, but it's nice to read such a sweet story once in a while !

This is absolutely bloody gorgeous.
Really, it's rare to see a fanfic dealing so completely and carefully with homophobia, especially in a fantasy setting like this, but you not only managed it, you did it in a way that was somehow blatant but deft at the same time. The anguish and confusion were so real it was heartbreaking, and Faramir's relationship with his father was lovely and tragic.
It can be s hard to find good, plotty, well-written LotR slash fics, but this is definitely among the cream of the crop. Thank you.

You did a wonderful job. Everyone stayed perfectly in character. Most people make Faramir weak and weepy and I am very happy you didn't. Keep the stories coming please!
