I'm enjoying this very much.It is an interesting premise and i went to read the original first.I eagerly await more.

Author Reply: Yes, the original story had such a fascinating premise! As soon as I read it, I had to wonder just how that encounter affected their future--so I was quite pleased when Claudia was assigned to me for re-mixing!

Yes, the Ring is already working on Boromir, and Frodo senses it, although he doesn't yet acknowledge it openly.

Poor Frodo!

Author Reply: The Ring *is* working on him; and It is having to work much harder than It would have before...

Well, we do not know much about Boromir's feelings on the quest from the book.
But what happens to him here, in this story, feels much more intense.
He senses very early that there is something strange happening to him, but he has not figured it out yet.

On the other hand Frodo is a dear friend to him and so the Ring's strategy to make Frodo look weak and foolish and unqualified to carry the Ring in Boromir's eyes doesn't work at all!

So the Ring starts a different approach: protecting Frodo by separating It from him. This might even work! And the outcome could be very dangerous!

Again, I can think of lots of possibilities of what might happen next!

Author Reply: I think a pre-existing friendship with Frodo would make all the difference in the world to how he would react to things. He'd have felt guilty over having injured Frodo all those years ago, he'd have already known and respected the fact that hobbits are tougher than they look, and he'd be totally committed to protecting his friend.

So, yes, the Ring will have to try a different tack.

I think that this whole idea was what attracted me to want to remix that particular story: the whole idea of how a friendship already in place between Frodo and Boromir and Faramir would impact the Quest...
