Concerning Sam  by Kara's Aunty 5 Review(s)
Linda HoylandReviewed Chapter: 10 on 10/14/2008
A lovely scene for Aragorn and Faramir.

Author Reply: Hello Linda,

Yes - I enjoyed creating that little scene. It's how I imagine their relationship would have evolved after several years as Steward/King and friends.

Thanks for the review!

Aragorn trying to goad Faramir into surprise--and especially the remark that he must have learnt his calm from Legolas--was quite funny and a nice counterpoint to the heavy angst that has been sweeping through this fic. I do remember seeing in UT that the Steward wasn't supposed to leave Gondor, but 1). anything published after Tolkien's death isn't authoritative and 2). Aragorn can do whatever he wants.

Rose and Elanor's reactions to Sam's condition were heartbreaking, but at the same time I could see the family strength shining through. No wonder Sam was able to stave off the Sea-longing so long!

A nice chapter.

I loved both 'parts' of this chapter.... the part with Aragorn and Faramir was well done - though I wanted to kick the king (are we allowed to do such things?) for not having 'run' to Sam's aid as soon as he discerned the problem...

As for Rosie - bless her heart - she did well as did Elanor. Hope the twins can help dear Sam.

Oh, good, you're back! I've been waiting all day and wondering, what if she doesn't post again soon - I can't wait! But here we are. :)

Love Faramir and Aragorn and the idea of holding Sam in their hearts. Soon I hope they will be holding him in their arms. Love Elanor's teasing words to her da. Indeed acts of love overwhelm all evil as Frodo is well aware of and Sam will learn anew. Watch out Ring - your days are numbered. You are going to yet again face love, the strongest force in the universe.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Oh I'm so glad that Faramir and Eowyn are going to accompany the King! How delightful! I hope we get to see some of that visit at some point in time!

Poor Sam. He can't tell friend from foe or reality from nightmare right now. But I am sure that the sons of Elrond will soon see him to rights!

Pippin has certainly grown into his role as Thain. And he has managing Merry down to a fine art.

I look forward to more soon!
