I've read your other Boromir tales and now I've come back to these. :) You're so good with him! I hope you write more! I once asked Jenolas, another Arda author who also loves and understands Boromir, if she might speculate on the women who passed through his life and chamber. She said romance writing really isn't her thing. Perhaps you... ?

Author Reply: Thank you for your kind words! I have written some Boromir romance (at my live journal) but not quite what you've suggested here. I will give it some thought, though!

Yay, another Boromir lover! I hope you've written more like this. *runs to check*

Author Reply: Whee! Another Boromir fan! Did you find them? Especially, "For the Moon to Lead, and All the Stars to Follow", and some in the LJ challenges too. Hope you enjoy them!

Considering how long Gondor was abandoned by her king, I'd feel the same way if I were him. It always amazed me how easily Aragorn was well-received by the people of Gondor, coming in at the last minute to reap the glory, when others had held it for so long & in such constant anguish.

Author Reply: Very true. Boromir and his family had been the living symbols for so long, it must have actually been quite difficult for the people of Gondor (and especially the people of Minas Tirith, who had direct, daily contact) to accept some one outside of the family as their new ruler.

Your comments are much appreciated, and a lovely surprise this evening. Thanks for reading through!

Envied, I am sure - after all the years of fighting for his land. Though, I'd guess he also values their antics, keeping the journey entertaining between perils. A bitter mix.

Author Reply: Their constant cheerfulness would certainly have been a different experience for him, that's for sure! But he would have been impressed by their loyalty and courage, finally accepting them as noble companions no less than men of Gondor or Rohan.

The Irony.

I've often wondered what a match they'd make - they seem too much alike, but they aren't black & white, either. I'd love it if someone wrote an AU with these two.

Author Reply: Oh, it lurks around in the back of my mind every now and then (like today) but I mostly write short pieces. But who knows? Maybe inspiration will strike unexpectedly!

Poor Boromir. I'd guess he got the short end of the stick in the food dept often with his short traveling companions.

Author Reply: And what an introduction to those chattering little eating machines! :)

Eerie - this lends to the unique connection the brothers had, prompting one to wonder: since Faramir had the ability to know of his brother's fate after he died, perhaps something prophetic occured between them before then, such as this. They did have the same blood.

Author Reply: Thank you picking up on this right away! I had to write and rewrite this so many times - the idea of the link, of the brother's communicating with each other through dreams, just did not come through. I'm glad to see it worked for you.

This made me laugh, whether it was intended or no. In his mind Rivendell would never compare to the White City, and he cuts it down immediately - possibly to prevent himself from enjoying it there too much? After all, that would seem unfaithful to him.

Author Reply: That's it! "I'm not going to like this place, it is not Minas Tirith, Minas Tirith is the best!" Obstinate soul that he was!

Not a luxury I would imagine Boromir delighting in, but now that you've written it - it makes sense that he would lose himself in this after all the long months abroad, the long years in combat.

Author Reply: I always imagine him really enjoying his creature comforts, when the opportunity presented itself, so hot water, soap, clean clothes would have given him great delight.

That was a beautiful set of drabbles. You mirror Boromir's impressions and inner struggles very well.

Author Reply: Thank you! It's a bit strange sometimes, having him living smack in the middle of my imagination, but it does provide for lots of opportunities for interesting stories.
