|Not a constructive review, just a statement : amazing story by an amazing writer. I have plunged into several of your stories with a great pleasure, and even if I usually don't review, I have to give you my thanks for your gifted writing.|

|Wow! That was a spooky tale. You so well conferred Faramir's confusion with his dream and also the little bits of understanding that came to him and to us the readers.|
Thanks for a riveting tale.

|I was wondering about Aule and Irmo in league with one another; but this is perfect! Yes, Olorin would keep his watch ever over this beloved one! Love the ending! And I was right! Yes! Good marriage of Gondor and poems!|

|And the water hopefully douses the flames as he saves the King and those who yet remain? Mewlips, these appear to be.|

|And what are these wraith-like, orc-like creatures he half recognizes? Mewlips?|

|A signal fire to draw those who wander into the spell, perhaps? And there HAS been a breeze in that still place. Intriguing.|

|Very eery this is becoming! The breeze that wasn't--now that sounds important.|

|Definitely ominous, Thundera Tiger! I find myself intrigued as to what the dream portends! Who are you, alone and naked?|

|Another excellent chapter, and a good ending to the story. Itīs very well written, as always (oh, and donīt worry about the other stories Iīve read. Theyīre all very good, but this one is my favourite, partly because itīs more fast-paced than the others Iīve read. Actually, your story Knife Work was the first fanfiction I ever read, and so itīs thanks to you and the story I discovered fanfiction reading and writing at all;))|
There is some things that perhaps you could have changed in this chapter. There is a great lot of information in it and everything isnīt completely easily to understand; I had to read it a second time to understand. It didnīt capture me as much as the earlier chapters did either. It may of course be because I read the others in a row and got into the story very much, and because the moment you realise Faramir is back in Minas Tirith you know that everythingīs probably fine and you just have to find out what exactly happened in the last chapter. And maybe it was simply because I read it too fast the first time, because i enjoyed it a lot more the second time. But I do think this chapter would have gained on being a bit slower paced (even though the quick pace was what I liked with the story) both because there is so much information, and because itīs the last chapter and you donīt want the end coming too fast. The scene with Eowyn could have been longer, and the scene with Gandalf too I think.
Apart from that (I would surely not have made it better) itīs a very good chapter and a good ending. You manage to tie up all loose ends, and you explain all these abstract mind/dream/illusion things in a good way. I understood most of it perfectly when I read it slowly, and if I had been better at english I would probably had understood even more.
And you included Gandalf! Itīs strange that just because the lovely wizard has been gone for some time in the story I feel like Iīve missed him even, though I can read the books whenever I want... but I loved it, and I didnīt see it coming at all. It was a good twist and it fit perfectly, and made me happy ;)
All in all the story is simply great. The best Iīve read for some time - I was beginning to think I had read all good stories there is already, but I obviously hadnīt. So keep writing, you rock! :D
Author Reply: Thank you so much for such a wonderful review! I'll definitely take your suggestions to heart. I've got a couple of ideas for tweaking the ending, and many of your suggestions fit right into that plan! I'm so glad you liked the pace of the story, too. It was exhausting to write, but I learned a lot in the process. And you're absolutely right about the pace of the ending. That could be improved, so thanks for your comments about that!
I'm glad you liked Gandalf, too! I tried to hint at his identity a couple of times, but they were such obscure hints that I doubt very many people caught it.
Again, many thanks for the review! I'm flattered you think so highly of this story! But there are MANY good stories out there by MANY good authors, and there are more being written every day. Promise!

|omg awesome end! I love Eowyn coming in the end to tend for Faramir! |
I liked how you made the twist on how Gimli in the dream is really Olorin! That is quite clever! It was cool you had Gandalf's quote: Your father loved you, Faramir. He remembered it before the end. :)
I liked this chapter a lot! Answered a lot of the questions i had and a very fitting end to a very entertaining storY! I never knew about the Mewlips and intend to read about them in the HIstory of ME...
Thank you for this! I loved this story very much! Everything was so spot-on!
Author Reply: VERY late response from me (sorry, I was on vacation), but I wanted to send out thanks for the review. Oh, and if you're looking for more info on the mewlips, I'd try the Tolkien Reader. Head for the poems in the section of "The Adventures of Tom Bombadil" and one of those poems is titled "The Mewlips." Hope that helps, and many thanks again for the review! I'm glad you enjoyed the story!
