A Handful of Valentines  by Branwyn 4 Review(s)

(I confess I read this hurriedly when you first posted it; it's a great treat to have the opportunity to reread and savor it in a more leisurely manner this rainy, dull afternoon.)

You don't specify either of the boys' ages here, so I'm assuming that they are both quite young. The Bestowing of the Horn come across as a quite impressive pre-coming-of-age ritual, celebrating family heritage without dangerous pointyness *g* Boromir, of course, loves this sort of thing, even at an early age, and it must have hurt his heart a bit for his adoring little brother to not get to come and worship.

I really love the way you bring out Boromir's tenderness, though, and concern for his little brother's feelings. The lodestone is an inspired touch! for Faramir was ever his brother's touchstone, his center.

I loved this glimpse of the brothers.You capture them both perfectly.

Awww; poor Faramir; it must have been hard to always see Boromir get the important, exciting stuff, and believe, even though he accepted it, that he would always come in second. But Boromir does something nice, and large, and very kind for his little brother.

Original and well-written.

Now, this is love in evidence. Boromir recognizing the second son also needs recognition and finding just the right thing to give him, and the right way to present it! Wonderful!
