***comment containts spoilers***

It's been a very long time since I've read such a stunningly unique fanfiction. I love the idea that Eldarion, Elboron and Alphros would set out to search for the staffs given to Frodo and Sam by Faramir; I love the sense of history and legend that is so vivid in your descriptions of the three young Men's route to Cirith Ungol. That Frodo's staff would turn into a lebethron tree at the outskirts if Mordor totally blew me away. Wow. You took the importance of what trees mean in Tolkien's world and created a tale from it that is so fully entrenched in that elusive "spirit" of Middle-earth, of nature and magic. Of hope. There is so much I appreciate about this story - your insightful portrayal of the memories of Sam and Frodo, the complex relationships between Aragorn and Faramir and their sons, the depictions of the life of the Rangers of Ithilien, the sense of comraderie between the three ... Thank you so much for writing this. (And forgive me for simply posting my review comment.) -- Vaysh
