I've been around since the First Age. Those Two Trees tasted quite yummy, too.

My favorite human character in Tolkien's works is Faramir of Gondor. Other favorites are Gandalf, Pippin, and Elrond.

I particularly liked Pippin's paragraph about Denethor here; very accurate and well-written.

Pippin's real name is "Peregrin", not "Peregrine".

Loved the bits about Faramir's recovery; he certainly had to cope with a lot of change. And the last line about using Gandalf-with-hat for a lighthouse is wonderful.

I imagine there might be a lot of kids named Iorhael growing up in Minas Tirith in the Fourth Age, and even more named for Pippin.

Lovely epilogue, especially Pippin's thoughts about Gandalf.

Author's Response: Yes...and maybe even a little Gandalf or two, I\'m sure;);) Too bad big Gandalf wouldn\'t stick around to get to know any of them. Thanks for reviewing Raksha! ~~~{~@

Author's Response: Yes, I thought so. Losing first a brother and then a father, then a new king and all the rest of it. Quite an upheaval. Glad Eowyn came along for him at least. Thanks for commenting! ~~~{~@

Author's Response: Thanks! I was amazed at how easy it was to write in Pippin\'s voice--don\'t know what that says about me! heheh Dang spellcheck missed it.....so maybe it was Tolkien who misspelled it;) ~~~{~@

A delightful chapter - from Aragorn's reaction to children, and Caladhros' adolescent certainty that Aragorn had been stolen by Elves and sent to Valinor, to Aragorn's meeting with Saelind.

More soon, I hope!

Author's Response: I\'ll be posting at least every two weeks, and more often if I can. G.A.

"They kissed in the darkness, and did a great many things besides. Imrahil found them.

They wed the next spring."


Snork!!! Heee. That says it all, doesn't it!

Very funny!

Author's Response: It does. Young people and their impulses, hee. I am glad you liked it.

Very clever transposition of The Tale of Beren and Luthien into The Mikado.

I love the frantic singing of the hymn to Elbereth to cover Celegorm's outing of Luthien.

Author's Response: I know -- the last scene of the Mikado\'s first act is MANIC. I\'m going to have a harder time with the Miya sama song in the second act.

Lovely! An original (well, for fanfiction) take on Aragorn's healing of Faramir. I enjoyed Aragorn and Faramir's sense of mutual trust and recognition even within the dream, and Aragorn's calling Faramir "Pilgrim" (an apt name both for the pupil of the Grey Pilgrim and for a man on a spiritual journey), also Aragorn's statement that Faramir was the "very rock of this land".

This one's going straight to my list of favorites.

Author's Response: Hi Raksha. Thanks for pointing out that ambiguity earlier - as you can see, it\'s been corrected. It does seem to be difficult to fit an interpretation in this time frame, on this event, that hasn\'t been done before, so I\'m glad this struck you as having something original to contribute. Dwim
