1. Gone Amiss
"All that I have done today has gone amiss"
Aragorn, Ch. 1: The Departure of Boromir, The Two Towers

Aragorn felt the tears slide down his face before he realized that he had shed them. The man born to be his Steward was slain, slain on his watch, slain while he himself had taken not even a scratch.Stars and Stones and Tree! What shall I say to Denethor?
