Poor Aragorn, to be bought down by the rocking of a ship, maybe he will get his sea-legs after awhile.

Author Reply: I surely hope so! It's been fifty years and I still don't have mine.

What a wonderful way to flatten the Dunedain at the end! Wonderful, Ann!

Author Reply: The challenge was to write a character I'd not tried before; this let me take care of two at once! Writing this provided quite a chuckle on an otherwise-dull workday afternoon.

Never having been seasick, I will take the word of others about how horrible it is. (Does it get better after a while?) It is refreshing to see a less-than-perfect Aragorn in this drabble. Why do I get the impression that Imrahil is snickering at the poor, queasy landsman? :-D

Author Reply: It's never, ever gotten better for me; so I actually do have enormous empathy for Thorongil in his suffering.
Quite the snickerer, that Imrahil, isn't he? :D

Snork!

Poor Thorongil, Heir of mariners, getting horribly seasick. Just too funny, without diminishing the talents and prowess of Aragorn-of-the-many-names.

Did Aragorn's missing ear-chunk ever grow back?

Author Reply: Oh, I just love the image of the earnest, stalwart Thorongil/Aragorn brought low as so many others (myself included, alas) have been.

"Did Aragorn's missing ear-chunk ever grow back?"
Not in any story I'll ever write!
