Snow is in tomorrow's forecast here. The storm will last through Wednesday afternoon. About 8" of snow is expected. I planned ahead and did my grocery shopping this morning.

This is why I hate winter, Karlmir. I don't suffer arthritis yet, but I get cold to my bones. We're expecting snow next week :/

Reviews For Thorongil

Name: Gabriel (Signed) · Date: November 30, 2017 9:59 · For: New beginnings
Firstly, I'd like to apologize if I came across a little too strong in my viewpoint of Denethor, in the last chapter, Chiara. After re-reading my review it did read a little too harshly. I did not mean for my words to sound the way they did and I hope it didn't spoil the review too much and I agree with you that Denethor did make a great steward and leader.


This next chapter was quite unexpected and a joy to read. Thorongil coming upon a grieving child in the form of six year old Boromir. It was such a sweet exchange of words between them and a surprise the words of wisdom Aragorn had for young Boromir concerning little brothers.

Author's Response: Do not worry, Gabriel ! There is no problem at expressing one's viewpoint. That is what fanfics are made for. Thanks for your reading and commenting.

Excellent story. Tolkien himself would probably have been impressed by the similarity of your style with his. I look forward to your next chapter.

Author's Response: Hou l ! I guess Christopher Tolkien would not quite agree with you. But still, your comment is very much pleasing. Thanks for your support.

He really is quite jealous of Thorongil, isn't he. And he has every reason to be, Thorongil, I feel, being the better man and all.

But to be so jealous as to consult the Palantir, just so he can find something anything to impugn the Ranger's honor and willingly leave himself open to subtle manipulations by the Dark Lord. Terrible lack of
discernment.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this.

The way you write is quite different and interesting. As if reading an excerpt from Tolkiens own books or Shakespeare.

Thank you for sharing.

Author's Response: Thank you for your support, Gabriel! I am very happy you liked this text. Let us not be too hard on Denethor. After all, he is a proud and competent leader, and Thorongil is but an offspring of a remote line, that seems to have altogether lost its Kingdom. He has been deceived by the Dark Lord, but who was not ? At this time Thorongil was not yet either, may be, able to us the seeing-stone himself.

This story was such a wonderful visual feast!

I am not very familiar with the intricate background details of Aragorn, except that he is the ancestor of Elendil who came from Numenor and was the first King of Gondor,{I hope I got that right}. Nor am I overly familiar with the histories of the many realms of Men, but with the help of stories such as yours, I am learning.

Thank you so much for the little history lesson at the bottom of the chapter, it helped tremendously.

I really enjoyed this little snippet out of Aragorn's life. Just a little question, was Thorongil related in any way to Ecthelion ll?

Wow! There is still so much I need to learn. :)

Author's Response: Thank you for your enthusiasm, Gabriel. Thorongil/Aragorn is not of Denethor's kin. He is the rightful heir of the throne, of which Ecthelion and Denethor are only stewards. Thus a certain tension.
