I love the wisdom of Aragorn! Well written!

Author Reply: Thank you so much! It was a fun story to write (though not so much fun for poor Brandir).

Now, that was quite the battle! I rejoice he took no more hurt.

Author Reply: Thanks! At least he has a great healer like Aragorn to take care of his injuries (though the Breefolk would have done their best).

He at least appreciates the need to flee!

Aargh, that apparently a northern wight has taken him!

Author Reply: As Tom Bombadil said, don't go meddling with cold stone or old wights!

Good grief, how on earth did I miss reading this wonderful tale before now?? Thank goodness for MEFA, that's all I can say about that, and thank goodness for me trying to squeeze in a few last minute reviews over there, or might never have found this.

What a chilling, nailbiting affair this was! I love Brandir... what a brave, earnest young man, so hard on himself for his seeming failure to protect the Breelanders. And Aragorn! What a hero he is in this, arriving at the nick of time and then at the end dispensing some much-needed words of wisdom. You really did create a chilling and eerie story. Definitely one I will re-read each Halloween.

Wise advice from the greatest of the Rangers. And a perfect ending to the tale. Thank you for this!

How I love this fight! Excellent! Brandir did well for someone who had to make it up as he went!

Author Reply: Thanks so much! It was fun to write (though not much fun for the poor ranger).

Wonderfully eerie! At least he's managed to get away from those who fail to realize the danger they're in!

Author Reply: Thanks so much! Yes, the Breefolk are in way over their heads.

Ooh--possession by one of the wraiths or wights of the place is NOT good! Now, to see the wight evicted from the poor Breelander's body! Glad they found him!

Author Reply: Remember how Tom Bombadil gave the hobbits such explicit instructions for avoiding the barrow-wights? It makes you wonder how many people had wandered in there and never returned. Brrr.
Thanks for reviewing! (Strangely, your reviews only just showed up in my mailbox.)

Wonderful story. I really enjoyed it. I usually don't like spooky stories, but that was most definitely an exception. I liked your Brandir he sounded so real. And I liked your Aragorn very much indeed.

And the concluding paragraph was just perfect for me. Short, sweet and showing why Aragorn was such great chieftain, and his people loved him.

Author Reply: Thank you so much for the kind review!
