Lie Down in the Darkness, Rise up from the Ash

thelauderdale - 13 Dec 11 - 5:42 PM

Ch. 3: Falling

This was a shocking chapter, and I don't mean in some juvenile "Oh no, not adult sexuality!" sense.  It is shocking for who the two people are, and for the context under which it occurs, and the world in which it is happening.  I love Aragorn's final thought at the end: Well, I am back, borrowing on Sam's famous words to Rosie.  In LOTR Aragorn, like Sam, postponed love and family for saving the world.  They fought for a future.  I want to tell myself that now Aragorn is not fighting not for some starlit dream, but for a living present - for something that he has, and that should be all the dearer to him for having it.
