“Do you mind if I look at the book now?” said Faramir.

“Not at all,” said Pippin.

“Yes,” added Merry, “and you must forgive us for being so old and crotchety. We’re much too used to being in stories, and not out of them.”

“Indeed,” said Faramir, and he picked up the volume. “Listen, when we finally deposit this at the Archives, you may be interested in meeting my grandson…”

Just...that. I loved the whole thing, but most especially that. Oh, I you think Barahir was the son of Faramir's son Elboron, or of another of Faramir's children? (And is Elboron canon or not? *ponders*)

Author Reply: Elboron, I believe, comes from Peoples of Middle-earth, so if you consider information in there canon, Elboron would be canon.

I'm not sure about Barahir, and I'm not yet in a position where I have to make a decision. I think I've tended to assume he was a younger son of Elboron, but it would also be very interesting to make him a daughter's son... *ponders*

Anyway, I'm so pleased you enjoyed the fic, and especially Merry and Pippin. I think, particularly at this point in their life, they'd be good at self-assessment, especially of their place in history.

Celeritas! Thank you so much for this mathom. Oh, how my heart ached, especially as I could feel Eru trying to reach out to His wayward sons, those two slowly driven mad by this emptiness, this separation, yet this feeling of something just *there*, just out of reach because they can't remember how to reach it...*shudder* Well done! Thank you so much, and again, happy birthday!


Author Reply: Thanks! There is, of course, all of eternity, or at least till the Second Music, for them to come 'round, but...

The Bible describes hell as weeping and gnashing of teeth. I've always thought that the gnashing meant anger, directed at God because they just can't realize how to repent... I don't think Sauron would want to be found for a good many millennia.
