The Sword of Elendil

Ch. 25: The Power of Elven Healing

I'll happily feed your muse.

I liked the "mechanism" of Aragorn's application of elven healing.  Your descriptions of this rang very true for me, but I am admitting my own biases here.  And this "...whirling like a fallen leaf into a vortex as black as Morgoth's heart."  Wonderful!  The lingering phantasm in Aragorn's memory is a good touch of foreshadowing, too.

I adore your Halbarad and Aragorn, and even in the midst of peril, the lightness of their banter and long friendship w/ one another are apparent.  I'm thrilled to see Daeron redeemed, of course.

And Drauchir?  What an excellent bad guy!  Very inspired.  

As always, your descriptions of the landscape make it a character in itself.

Hey, G.A. -
Great to see this updated again!  You keep the tension and suspense up, and maintain (and develop!) the relationships among the characters.

As it turns out, I really like Daeron.  Beleg / Drauchir is great, too, in a very scary and creepy way.

The healing scene is well-thought out and tense and a bit puzzling for us and for A.--excellent!

Also like this nod to the books:

"Well, you can laugh, but I can't. You are white as a ghost."

"A poor choice of words." Aragorn frowned. "Don't say such things."

Again, very good!  Hope the Muse sticks around for more of the same!

I'll echo the previous comments - another great entry in The Sword of Elendil.  I like how Aragon's confidence is tested in this chapter, and the opportunity you've created to develop him further.  Awesome story!

Six more chapters?? Darn... I would hate to see this story end. 

Long cliffhangers regardless, it always pleases me to see updates!

Hope Rodnor does not succumb to this phantom sorcery.

Pandemonium, DrummerWench, Aerenos, RS: Thanks for your comments on the ongoing drama of Aragorn's young manhood. He's still got many challenges to face, even after the threat of the sorcerer is overcome--including coming to some kind of resolution about a certain Elf-maiden, and meeting that crusty old wizard. I appreciate your patience with the slow progress of the story.

I can see, in this story, Aragorn developing into the sort of man who will become a great leader of Middle Earth.  This is a wonderful story. I see RS's comment re six more chapters, while that sounds great I will hate to see this story end.  Looking forward to more Aragorn / Arwen and Gandalf.

Keep up the great work.  Can't wait for more. Am re reading my favorite bits while I wait.

A nasty wight, this one.  I hope Aragorn got him out of there!
