|Ten Thousand Years Will Not Suffice by Agape4Gondor||3 Review(s)|
|Larner||Reviewed Chapter: 4 on 6/28/2010|
|Too terrible a loss to need to serve to bring father and son back together, but at least it has accomplished that. I grieve for the time lost, however, and honor Indis the more for her courage. And at last she's learned of the gift of irises he'd intended for her!|
Author Reply: Those dear irises grew out of an incident with my son. He and a buddy found a patch in a local park and brought a bunch for planting home to me.... thankfully, the park police didn't see them... and it was too late to send them back! BUT - the boy got a serious talking to!!!!
We will see the irises a few times - they were important to Denethor.... *sobs*
AND I was so proud of Indis!
Bless you for your comments!

|Happened across this story this morning - you're doing a very nice job of showing that Denethor likely started out as quite a nice young man, but boy his relationship with his father is twisted.|
Author Reply: Hello SS - I cannot believe I never saw this comment - and especially that I didn't respond to it! Shame on me! And thank you.
Just an FYI - the tale is done now - only about 7 years later - a short epilogue will be posted within the next few days....
Bless you - and hoping that now this is done I can go back and read about a favorite 'healer' and her exploits!

|Well, that's the Steward's family all over. It takes a brutal death to get them to confront festering feelings and resentments towards each other. Good for Indis for finally intervening in this mess. Ecthelion behaved like an ass, and I hope that he figures it out soon.|
It will be interesting to see how Denethor overcomes his revulsion towards Curunir to develop the friendship they seem to have later on.
Author Reply: Hi, French Pony,
I'm interested to know where you got the impression that Denethor and Curunir were friends. I had come away (from reading the books) with the impression that Denethor didn't trust any wizard?
I'm glad myself that Indis finally chose to confront Ecthelion!
