Well, this is the best resolution we could hope for, given Boromir being who he is, and coming to what he's coming to. A telling insight into the thoughts that must have been going through his head. Decisions this soldier never imagined having to consider.

Author Reply: Your own thoughts on the subject are always appreciated. I do sometimes feel sorry for Boromir, having to give up the rule of a country he loves to a nearly complete stranger. I imagine that, even if he did accept it, he spent much more time thinking about it than I portray. Thanks for the review.

I'm really enjoying this story. Aragorn and Boromir both seem very true to the characters we see in the books. Thanks for sharing!

Another great chapter. I, personally, am glad you stayed with the book rendition of Anduril.... It is truly a momentous moment, and I was really very grateful that Aragorn decided to share it with Boromir.... *heavy sigh*

Author Reply: While the movie rendition was dramatic, I always preferred the book version. It just feels right that Anduril goes at the same as the Ring.

I also learned from some internet site that it takes about a month to forge a sword with the classic methods (I don't know how valid it is, but that's the only source I could find). Frankly put, the War would have been over by the time Anduril was ready in the films :P

Ah! Anduril rising from the shards of Narsil; and fealty is now definitely growing between them!

Author Reply: Indeed :D Thank you for your kind reviews, and constant support.
