I'm pleased to see this lovely story here too.I did not realise you were the lady on LJ I sometimes chat to !

Author Reply: *waves* Yes, it's me! This was also my LJ name until about a year ago. I'm not even sure how I would go about changing it over here. Thanks for stopping by to say hello!

Ah, Ann, such a wonderful, wonderful story! Lovely! Mist appearing to steal the fields? Ah, the wonder of children!

Author Reply: I've walked through rolling fields in late summer when they are blanketed by mist, muffling even the birdsong. Though lovely, the sight is disturbing; how much more so for an imaginative child! I'm glad he was able to find a meaningful reason for it all. Thanks for reading and commenting!

Oh how lovely - beautiful language and a beautiful moment between father and son. It's obvious how much Faramir loves and values his son; this is one relationship that won't end in flames.

Author Reply: Sometimes I go walking in the early morning in a park with rolling hills and fields; when the mist is rising it's like walking through a cloud. That was what I was hoping to convey here, along with Elboron's breathless wonder (and insightful theory.) Sounds like I was successful on all counts. Thanks for reading and commenting!

This is just lovely. What a magical, precious moment between father and son.

Author Reply: Thank you! These two are modeled after a father and son I've encountered at school, a homeschooler and his doting dad. The young man is lively and curious; the father is warm and very supportive, not only to his own children but to the community. I never wrote Faramir and Elboron until I met these two wonderful role models. I wonder what they'd say if they knew?

Your wonderfully encouraging comments are always appreciated!

Truly vivid and lovely. Clever little boy that!

Author Reply: Crossing Faramir's dreaminess and imagination with Eowyn's pragmatism and resourcefulness produces quite an articulate and determined little boy. He's a joy to write. Thank you for reading and commenting!
