sorry it took me so long to actually give a silly little comment ! I am hopeless!
I have been waiting for this update and I am very happy with it! You sound like a war strategist in front of a battlefield map, readying your troups for the battle. We can feel the tension in the air, the readiness for something to happen, soon. Like the Boromir's edginess, Faramir's bad feeling, even Aragorn and Legolas 's worries! It all fits nicely.
I suppose I am just being impatient but it feels like the story is taking longer. I am eager for some action now! Probably because we are into the myst of things. Now, you are getting into the real problem of Boromir's survival and its consequences within the storyline. And for you it must be harder to write as well.
Good luck to you, and keep it up with all my heart! I really love your story. And even if I was (which of course I am not) the only one to read, please... promise you'll finish it...
