Tales of Life  by Aelaer 5 Review(s)

I've read another similar tale elsewhere, but it's always fascinating to consider just how Gandalf would have made this request. And how much did Aragorn guess even then, we wonders, doesn't we?

A lot of years went into developing the level of trust that allows Gandalf to make requests like that! What makes me think Aragorn was a cakewalk compared to what Halbarad is going to say...

Author Reply: Oh, I can only imagine Halbarad's response. Speaking of Halbarad, I really cannot wait for the next chapter in your story. ;P

Poor Aragorn. Gandalf might be a mighty wizard, but at times Aragorn must have felt as if he was serving a dozen different masters, while at the same time pretending to be the chieftain of the Dunedain. Still. It all worked out in the end.

Author Reply: Oh, most certainly, with Gandalf, Elrond, and many others just bossing him around ;) And it definitely worked out in the end, seeing as he turned out to be king of half of Middle-earth, or so it seems at times. But anyways, thank you for the review!

Nice gap-filler--just the kind of meeting I see Gandalf and Aragorn having many times. My only quibble: I think that Gandalf told Aragorn all his fears from the very beginning. He would want Aragorn's full attention and all his insight and ability on this one....

Author Reply: *nod* I understand your thoughts; I think for most cases, Gandalf would be like that. But at this point of time he's really not quite sure what Bilbo- and now Frodo- has in his possession, and I think he would do a little more research before telling Aragorn the whole story. But anyways, thank you very much for the review :)

This is a nice scene. Aragorn's trust in Gandalf was so absolute, and it's obvious they've been trusted friends for a very long time.

Author Reply: About 45 years at this point of time, actually. *grin* Thank you very much for the review.
