Hey, G.A. -
Great to see this updated again! You keep the tension and suspense up, and maintain (and develop!) the relationships among the characters.
As it turns out, I really like Daeron. Beleg / Drauchir is great, too, in a very scary and creepy way.
The healing scene is well-thought out and tense and a bit puzzling for us and for A.--excellent!
Also like this nod to the books:
"Well, you can laugh, but I can't. You are white as a ghost."
"A poor choice of words." Aragorn frowned. "Don't say such things."
Again, very good! Hope the Muse sticks around for more of the same!
