It was very intersting to read as it touched a topic I seldom see. It's intriguing to see this experienced cocky Arwen and shy, innocent Aragorn. Both have obviously expectations the other can't fulfill - especially as Aragorn seems very set in his view of those matters. And it his his reluctance that I'm not really sure how to feel about.
Of course he's a bit scared, especially with this event of the woman he described, but he was on the road with the rangers and a switch of roles would be fair play. If roles were switched, nobody would understand if Arwen refused to sleep with him as it's the "normal way".
Author's Response: Thanks! I always thought the age difference between them would have mattered a great deal when they first met. Arwen as cougar, snicker snicker.
