Ivorwen is a delightful character--just as I would imagine the grandmother of Aragorn to be, the one who had the foresight to know that Gilraen was destined to marry Arathorn.

Poor Halbarad has yet to learn that lesson, but he will--he will! Love the characterizations here.

*happy sigh* This gives me the same contentment reading it the 2nd time here as it did reading it the first time on your LJ. :) What a wonderful moment between Dirhael and Ivorwen--you write them so well! I like their somewhat cranky but loving relationship in your hands, and she's so wonderfully strong and pragmatic yet obviously holds a deep well of love and affection both for her husband and for Aragorn and her people. And even though Aragorn's unconscious the entire time, you still infused his presence into the story so well that it feels as Aragorn-centric as it does Ivorwen-centric. No small feat, that! And of course... HALBARAD!! *g*

A very terrific birthday gift and I thank you immensely!

Author Reply: Baah, my email notifications for SoA seem to have stopped coming in, hence the delayed reply to these comments. But thank you so much!! I am SO, so so pleased you enjoyed it as much here as one LJ :D. And it makes me very happy to hear it still feels Aragorn-centric...I'd worried at that one for a bit as I was going back and editing and realized he doesn't say a word the whole while! *g*

This was most enjoyable and felt true to life.I do hope you will write more LOTR Stories.

Author Reply: Thank you so much! I am definitely going to try to--been begging and pleading with my muses to stick around :)

“Small blessings, at least,” she gave a sad smile. “I suppose that’s all we really live on.”

Thank you for the small blessing of this tale.

What a marvelous gift for Cairistiona. :)

Poor Halbarad! He needs a different type of healing, and I hope he is comforted soon.

Author Reply: Thank you so much! And yes, Halbarad does indeed need a different type of healing--one I'm sure Ivorwen will provide once she's cooled off a bit :)
