Fate and the High King's Falcon  by Baylor 16 Review(s)
PaulaReviewed Chapter: 10 on 5/20/2004
I really enjoy this story. It's honest, sweet, and mindful of the fact that little warriors who do such great deeds and get injured don't recover in the turn of a page. Much of the characters' relationships to each other can be demonstrated in such a period of healing, and this story reflects them quite well.

For this chapter, though, I have a question about Aragorn's methods. Given that he knew there was a broken eye socket involved, and that the possibility that a bone fragment from the eye socket could have done damage to the involved eye, I wonder about Aragorn's pausing to test the rotation of the unaffected eye before examining the eye ensconced in the broken socket. The eyes won't move independently, so I'm curious as to why Aragorn was not concerned about the eye in the broken socket incurring injury when it moved for the first time while he was testing the opposite eye. It would be difficult to say just where a bone shard could be that might do some damage to a turning eyeball. And now Pip's reporting peripheral vision problems...

And another question... I saw on another archive that this story has been updated with an extra chapter or two. Is this edition going to get a similar update?

I read this last year, and did not review (bad, I know!). Since then, I've reread this 3 or 4 times at least. I LOVE this story...not sure why...perhaps it is the very great love that all the Fellowship members bear for the youngest. (I am reminded of either Gimli or Legolas whispering to Pip that he'd better heal soon...for even the very great rushed to fulfill his slightest wish.) Anyway, you have written something to be treasured, my friend, and to be revisited again and again. And Legolas' song --- *sniff* ----how lovely and appropriate for his Pip. Thank you for a wonderful story!

Excellent! Maybe there is something to that team effort thing. Song formats in stories usually annoy me, but this was an excellent exception!

Once again, I am amazed by the magnificence of your writing. This is a truly wonderful story, and I believed that you captured the essence of each character. Thank you for writing this.

Of course, I have already reviewed this elsewhere, but I must say, this remains an astonishingly beautiful story. I love Llinos' poem, I think Marigold did an awesome job as your beta reader, but you, Baylor, have done an outstanding piece of writing.

Thanks so much for sharing it with the rest of us.
