Theme and Variations

Oh, this was a delight to read from beginning to end. You've done a marvelous job of getting Faramir past all his baggage - and without having him succumb to angsty-ness! I have nothing against Faramir angst, but I don't think the man was constantly posessed of dark thoughts.

 I loved the whole Jane Austen angle (huuuuuuge JA fan, here); it made me giggle and yet annoyed the heck out of me, as such gossipping always does.

I loved the image of an "uncivilized" Aragorn - exactly the way I picture it, I must say; and I think he would  have continued to be something a trial to the staff even once more accustomed to life - and the drinking/smoking scene was, quite honestly, one of my favourite parts. 

I really can't say it enough...I loved this story. And if you decide to continue in this vein, then I'll be waiting along with everyone else.

Hello, Ti'ana Luthien

So glad you enjoyed "Theme and Variations"--one of my purposes in writing it was to attempt to give a lighter touch to this often so angsty, difficult period in Faramir's life while at the same time remaining true to the story. Putting some comic characters in the Steward's family a la Jane Austen proved to be the best route! And thanks for adding your recommendation!

I really like this! It has an almost Austenian feel to it--Morwen is a dead ringer for Pride & Prejudice's Mrs. Bennet. And I love Faramir's somewhat easygoing narration--it worked very well.

Hey Gandalf's Apprentice!
This is a really wonderful story - I enjoyed watching Faramir's relationship with Aragorn grow - and the sisters are a real treat!
