Dragons and Sailboats  by Acacea 5 Review(s)

Very touching. I always liked young Boromir stories - but considering how much he was manipulated and left in the dark, I can't really blame him for not trusting his travelling companions entirely.

Author Reply: Thank you:) Yes, I do think young Boromir and the older one that finally made it to the fellowship would have been so very diferent. All those years of fighting were bound to change him:o

Bery touching, I love Aragorn and Faramir stories and would love to read more from you.

Author Reply: Thank you:) I quite like reading stories that involve these two too:) I'm trying to write more but the muse and RL both tend to get a little uncooperative at times:(

A very bittersweet memory for the two of them, remembering the one whom both cared for and who himself found a dragon of sorts that proved far too difficult to slay.

How sad for Boromir, wondering where Thorongil had disappeared to so long ago; trying the shield of anger and dispassion, but finally hoping again, before he found him at last.

Oh indeed.

How sad for Boromir, wondering where Thorongil had disappeared to so long ago;
I think if Boromir did get to know Thornogil as assumed here, he would have had to have some impact on him, so yes, he'd definitely miss him.

Thank you for reviewing:)

What a sad but tranquil story. Aragorn's awareness of the changes in the landscape and his awareness of the river rushing past give the writing a very autumnal mood. I love that both brothers were cleverer than either Gandalf or Aragorn gave them credit for.

Boromir said turnip soup and Thorongil were completely unrelated and if Mithrandir was going to speak in riddles, hed really rather not speak to him.
I like how the line echoes Eowyn's proud remark to Faramir in ROTK "I do not wish to play at riddles!" Maybe Boromir and Eowyn wouldn't have made such a bad couple after all--young Boromir says that a princess who couldn't ride would be boring. :-)

Thanks so much for this wonderful ficlet!

Author Reply: I am really glad you liked it:)

*smirk* you know I quite like reading slashy Faramir stuff so I do think that's a fine idea there:)

I liked this a lot. It's nostalgic without being sentimental. You give this sense of past lives and events that people wish could have been different. But of course, they never can be.

Author Reply: I'm glad to hear the nostalgia works. Yes, I guess there's a lot all of them would wish could have been different.

Thank you so much for reviewing!
