At Tharbad's Greenway Spring Faire  by Dreamflower 71 Review(s)

Lovely story; you really capture Faramir's character, even in these earlier days we see the Numenorean strain in him, the promise of the great Captain he will be in LOTR. I don't think anyone has looked at Henneth Annun like this. Good characterization of Mablung as well.

Author Reply: Thank you! I'm glad you like my version of a younger Faramir. I like to think his promise was always there to be seen by those who took the time to look.

I've been fond of Mablung ever subvert I. Used him as my POV character in "Encounter in Ithilien"

I am glad to get your review-- I'd begun to think no one had seen this one!

Author Reply: "Ever since I used him..." *facepalm* Silly iPad.

with any luck the goblins would spend a few days there, looting and chasing down and hunting the various sheep, cows, ponies and so forth

That is a clever plan! I hope it can slow the goblins down long enough. Edro has not yet reached the Thain.

Good that all is going well with Hirluin's treatment, and that the folk of Greenfields have confirmed the Ranger's story. Now, to convince the rest of the Shire!

At least those in Long Cleeve are taking the warnings seriously, and Hirluin should be dealt with properly now that he's with competent healers.

He felt her small hand, like a child's hand, smooth his hair back from his forehead, and a cool compress that smelled of lavender was laid across his brow. She stroked his head and hummed a soft, slow melody. Soon he was sound asleep once more.

You can guess how much I love that. :)

Author Reply: *grin* To be perfectly honest, I had YOU in mind when I wrote it! But after all, Rangers need a little TLC too!

Ed's recklessness and mischief was no longer an issue as the lad found his job exciting enough to keep him out of trouble.

That's practical! If you want to keep a young hobbit out of mischief, make him a Quick Post rider!

Now we can only hope that Ed is really as fast as they say and that he won't encounter any problems on his way.

Author Reply: Yes, I figure some young hobbits who might have been a bit trouble-prone or have a bit of wanderlust end up as Posthobbits, Bounders, and Shirriffs.

I just love this and am thrilled Harry inspired it.

I am glad too that Sam didn't drown! I ache for Frodo's true reason for wanting to teach Sam.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Frodo would never have pressed Sam to learn swimming. And luckily he was there at the right moment to save Sam from drowning. Now that Sam has changed his mind he might learn how to swim after all. If not from Frodo then maybe from Merry or Pippin.

As the Gaffer says, 'You won't go far when standing still.'

That is VERY true :-D

Author Reply: Actually, Sam does eventually learn (though not from Merry or Pippin) in my story "Up the Withywindle". But he never really practices it once he does learn. On the other hand, I believe that he allows Merry and Pippin to teach his own children the skill.

*grin*
