Aragorn can't join - by emotionally blackmailing Legolas to accompany him on the Paths of the Dead, he's firmly on my blacklist!

SPCL? Society for prevention of cruelty to Legolas? RSPCL if Aragorn joins!

Yay, Nelya! We can be founder members of SACL. I tried to think of something with a better acronym - I'm open to suggestions!

Naledi I'm with you on the Society Against Cruelty to Legolas (SACL)!! ;-) but who are we kidding--we read it all and love it anyway, despite the misadventures of our dear Elf!

I think it’s a sensible choice. Aragorn has a large backstory going back many years, so it was always going to be one of their first choices.

It's an expensive gamble they have taken--they have to nail this first season. Also the TolkienEstate is far more involved in this one I hear.

A quite big "if", I'd say. Just look what mess was made out of the Hobbit movie. Nowadays I tend to be a bit cynical. So I say the series is good if it will be at least not cringeworthy.

As well as Elladan and Elrohir and the Rangers of the North. It could be a hit if done right. Plus the Arwen love interest.

I am actually relieved the Amazon series is starting with young Aragorn. There is much canon content to work with, he's a familiar character and chance to see Glorfindel, Gilraen

And that's how they learn about the weaknesses of dragons! From the little guy Aegnor adopted.

Hi Narya!

I promised myself I would start reading your stories at some stage. This one caught my eye as a starter. :)

Oh! Narya this was so sweet and a little emotional.

Eomer being the bigger protective brother and he's a little afraid that someone might steal or usurp that role from him. It's almost as if he needs that role to play as much as Eowyn needs it from him.

Then Theodred joins them. Oh! My! Gosh! What a lovely family they have. Theodred counting himself their new big brother/cousin.

And Theoden more than willing to take in his brother's children and call them his own. It just goes to show the quality of person and King Theoden is.

I really enjoyed this! Thank you!

Author's Response: Hi Gabriel! I didn't expect to ever get a review for this again...it's a very old story, actually the first fanfic I ever wrote! I'm really glad you enjoyed it, though. I really like writing Rohan - I play a bit more with Edoras in Three and Second Chance. And I love Theodred, his fate makes me so sad :( I have toyed previously with an AU where he lives, but never actually got around to writing it. Maybe some day! Thank you so much for your kind words.

Spiced Wine: Oh, I do like this. It's always lovely to read about characters before they come into a story, as every-one has a past. And Theodred handled that very well. I was always sad he died :(

Author's Response: I am tempted to write a story in which he lives, but there are too many bunnies in the hutch - and
