The Sword of Elendil

Anyone who loves Halbarad should definitely read this chapter. On Aragorn--I cannot but think of Wordsworth, "The Child is father of the Man..." It is so honest in its portrayal of the young Aragorn--completely recognizable, but with so much more to do and learn. Of course, your continued development of the world of the Northern Dunedain is a real contribution to the genre. Awesome!

I read through this chapter again when you transferred it from the Workshop to Beta.  Finally I have the time to drop a note.

I so enjoy Aragorn's backstory as you tell it.  You have made him a well-rounded character - still a youth in many ways, but beginning to show his maturity.  Petulant!Aragorn made me laugh, and Halbarad's reaction was just right.

Eagerly awaiting the next installment!

Hi G.A.,

Making my way through a quick rereading before I get to those new chapters.

I don't know if I've said this before, but I do love the idea of the falcons who protect the keep. It makes so much sense: when the spies of the Enemy number birds among them, one would need birds on your side as well to catch them.

I, too, like the idea that the peregrines protect the keep, as another Peregrin will one day protect the King!  Nice foreshadowing!
