Very nice snippet here. Yes, Beregond was proud, but humbled himself, and I'm sure Aragorn remembered this when he was called upon to judge him.
God bless,
Galadriel

A wonderful and sobering wee tale. Well done as always, m'dear :)

Nice, a sort of gap-filler to the Beregond story. Poor Beregond. But he did what he thought was best. I am happy it ended well.

Ah, finally found it. Yes, a good intro to the story now being written--although I do wish to see Thain and the tale of two hard winters expanded upon, of course.

Oh dear - I hope that the throat is getting better and that you are getting some sleep in, finally!

Hopped over to your LJ as patience isn't in my vocabulary, (now that is a site that I really must go visit more often,)and found your story. You have GOT to get it posted here Lindelea, edited or not! I enjoyed it so much and will be checking often for that last installment! Sam is the perfect hobbit to be discussing this. He reacts with his heart and guts where Frodo, who doubtless understands the concepts more like Aragorn, would try to argue for mercy more logically.

Anyway you are putting it much better than I ever could so I wull shut up and just beg for the story here. *g* (But get better first dear Lindelea. )

Poor Beregond.

Eowyn and Merry disregard orders, kill the Witch King and become heroes. A soldier of the guard disregards orders, saves Faramir's life and spends the next month or so expecting to be executed. Wanting to die in battle to protect his son from what will happen to him.

The law can be an ass.

Author Reply: And don't I know it. One of my relatives is in criminal defence, specialising in death penalty cases, and the stories he can tell...

This snippet is actually background I wrote, while working on a piece that I'm posting in my LJ, preparatory to editing the thing and posting it here.

And hopefully once I've scratched the "Beregond itch" for the moment, I'll be able to turn my thoughts back to the stories-in-progress. It would be nice to think so, anyhow.

Thanks!

Well begun. I have always thought there could be many stories around someone who befriends strangers and is willing to lay his own life on the line for the Captain he loved. I hope you can go on.

Author Reply: Actually, if you want to see the piece that this one was written as background for (not actually a scene in that piece, but referred to there, and so I had to have it clear in my mind), you can check out http://lindelea1.livejournal.com

The story, "To See Justice Done", is posting in draft form there.

Or you can wait until it's edited, and gets posted here. Depends on how patient you are. (Some times my readers have to be awfully patient. The Muse is a fickle creature at best. But I have great hopes of getting back to the current crop of stories by the end of the week, if all goes well.)

Thanks!

Aw this is great Lindelea. I always did wonder how he got to be leading that company of men. Perhaps you should call it a trickle! *g* And yes! More, more, more pleeeeese!

Author Reply: Because it is getting later and I really need to give my pillow a little bit of company, poor lonely thing, please forgive me for repeating what I said in another review reply:

And thanks for the encouragement!
