Serving Gondor  by Larner 44 Review(s)

Interesting chapter. One wonders if the lords who think a bit too highly of themselves ever would conspire against Aragorn for his punishments for their hedonism. thanks for an interesting chapter, looking forward to the next installment.

Hi Larner!

I am so thrilled that my drawing was an inspiration for this story! Squee!

I am doubly delighted that you have expanded on what I have always thought the King and Queen would be... Hands on Royals who are approachable and personable to their subjects; ones who give back and take care of the less fortunate.

I appreciate every detail that you put into this. It's like being transported into the streets of Minis Anor. I cannot wait to read more.

This is so enjoyable to read, and I appreciate your attention to detail in things like the times the housekeeper lights the boilers. I particularly liked the idea of Arwen endowing a house of rest -- it seems a fitting tribute to Elrond and Rivendell. At the same time, it's hard to escape the thought that this is a highly idealized picture of life under Elessar.

You made me feel as if I were in Minas Tirith. Poor Andreth to lose her children to a fever.

Larner, I always enjoy your stories. There are many I have read repeatedly. I was thrilled with a story of Minas Anor early in Aragorn's reign. Thank you so much

Andred is certainly fortunate to have met the King and Queen!

One question. Aragorn referred to Pippin by his full legal name as well as his nickname, but he referred to the other three hobbits only by their nicknames. Is it because Pippin was a Guard of the Citadel?

It is great to see the monument through different eyes and hear the King's loving recitation of their deeds. And Ruvemir is going to appear? Hooray! I think he is my favourite of your OC characters.
You appear to be getting me back into the habit of reviewing so thank you for that too. Also, many thanks for your email and prayers.

How nice to have a new story from you, Larner! I really enjoyed it.

Author Reply: Oh, my dear friend--how long it's been since I heard from you last! The wallpaper you once sent me of two aspects of Aragorn and the saying indicating he was the Guardian is wallpaper on this computer now. And this story will continue for a few more chapters. Heh!

IT's so good to see you writing again. And it's an interesting start to the story. I am sure that Aragorn or Arwen or both will end up helping solve the problems you've put forth in the first chapter of the story.

Author Reply: I've been writing this for months, but my time for writing is too limited any more. It is finished, so it will go up rather quickly, I hope.

And I suspect you are correct! Heh!

The King's Commission is one of my all-time favorite fics, so what a delight to read a sort of offshoot from that. Excellent work as always, thank you so much for posting.

Author Reply: I oam honored, and I even managed to briefly bring Ruvemir into this one, you'll find! Hope it continues to satisfy.
