i am a new member to HASA as fanfiction.net was not able to satisfy my thirst for boromir stories. i have decided to come back to the LOTR fandom after 5 years and was glad to see this story tucked amongst thousands just waiting to be appreciated and loved again! i am not a writer (although i have tried several times in the past only to fail miserabl!) but i do know how to appreciate a well-written, well-thought of story when i see one. i am nearly done reading all 50+ chapters of your story (without any interruptions!) and have shamelessly cried for the last 20 chapters or so.... i haven't read a more engaging, emotionally-wrought, story in a long time. I am glad that there are still writers out there like you who dare share their talent with us simple-readers.
i have loved boromir's character eversince reading tolkien's books which brings me to what you have just written
"Ah, my sweet mortal Man,
all rugged and ragged and ruined and scarred
long have I favored you, loved you as a babe,...."
he is just so flawed and noble that i think he deserves more than a passing thought in the First Book. thank you for expounding on his character and for giving him justice among the other nine walkers!
thank you also for sharing the adraefan! i have never enjoyed a group of elves in my life!
I can't wait to finish this story! i do hope that varda's whispers should suffice to pull boromir out of his rut and at the end receive his rewards as varda promised!
thank you and i will now keep on reading! :)
