Tales of Life  by Aelaer 5 Review(s)

I really liked the images of the Dunedain village is this story. We know so little about how they lived but this felt very right to me. And I loved Aragorn's thoughts about the cradle.

Author Reply: I'm glad you like it! I'm forming my own little Dunedain backstory with these prompts, and achieving something realistic is certainly something I strive for. Thanks for reviewing.

Ah, worthy wonderings for the chieftain returned, the one who once lay in that cradle....

Author Reply: And a mere 20 years from those years, as well. 20 years; a blink of an eye to Time. Fascinating, really.

A very poignat and moving vignette. The gentle hand that Aragorn laid on the cradle and his perception of the love poured into its making were a great touch. So was the ending with Aragorn's realization that now it was time to face the future, and that he would have to wait for better times to mourn the past.

Author Reply: I'm glad you liked it; it was a bit of a challenge to get out, so I'm glad you thought it worked.

A very touching moment for Aragorn.I hope he will tell gilraen of his visit to their old home.

Author Reply: Hum, he should! I like that idea very much, yes... let's see if the Muses do, too.

The sudden knock on the door was almost a physical shock. An appropriate but sudden breaking of the mood.

Author Reply: Ah, good, I was going for that affect. Glad it worked :)
