|A wonderful little story, the Steward of Gondor catching up with old history and old friends, history that he's lived and friends he still loves. And for Faramir, in this vignette, the history and his story blend together. I love the mixture of scholar's perspective with the personal memories. Thank you for this touching birthday mathom!|
Author Reply: You're quite welcome! I think it would be very odd to be in Faramir's position, so far removed from a friend by time, distance, and brevity of acquaintance--then reading Frodo's account of the past. As I said earlier, this entire concept was a lot of fun to explore, so thanks for the prompt.

|Awwwww. Very nice! I love the way you capture Beregond's soldierly toughness and his friendship with Pippin, and the soldierly spirit of the Men of Gondor after the great victory, the way the other soldiers join the guard around Pippin's tent is marvelous...|
Author Reply: Thanks! Despite the fact that Pippin has more than proved himself a soldier of Gondor, I think all these stern men's paternal instincts would still kick in. I hope Pippin isn't overwhelmed when he wakes up!

|Beautiful - you capture the sea-longing so vividly here, as well as Galadriel's own sorrowful longing for home; and now, finally, she knows she can regain the West. Very Elven as well as Tolkienish.|

|How did I miss this one? A lovely look at the friendship between Merry, Pippin and Faramir, and the great history they have shared. There aren't enough fanfiction stories dealing with the Thain's Book; and this book is such a personal treasure for these three noble scholars. And I love Faramir's mention of his grandson, surely the canonical Barahir, who will carry on the love and study of history in Gondor. A wonderful vignette!|
Author Reply: Actually, this fic started out as yours (with the plan of eventually getting to Part 2), but the story quickly veered off in the direction of Marta's prompt so I decided it'd be best to make it deliberately so, and split up the story. I love manuscript and archive fics, so this was a real treasure to work on (as was slipping in Barahir!).

|I loved this look at the Rangers and would be most interested in the meeting with the Chieftain!|
Author Reply: Thanks! I'm not sure which Chieftain it is, so I left the time ambiguous, but Rangers are Rangers. ^_^

|I'm so glad you followed through on this one! Now, to let nature take its course! She's seen the grief he holds deep in his heart, and understands better now, I think, why he sought to steal that kiss to begin with. Compassion can at times help spark love.|
Thanks for this one!
Author Reply: It'll still be quite a while, but they've definitely made progress. I'm hoping to continue revisiting this from time to time.

|Durn--my browser won't let me see the picture. But it sounds delightful! Poor lass--wants more adventure than she realizes.|
Author Reply: I know that sometimes Deviantart pictures just won't load, and if you try another day it might work. Because it is a delightful picture and it explains the gung-ho-ness of the unnamed girl.

|Oh, how I love these patchwork quilts that speak of love! Yes! Beautiful! Made me wipe my eyes.|
