The Name of a King  by Mirach 3 Review(s)
LarnerReviewed Chapter: 2 on 7/1/2011
As Merry found himself experiencing the death of one of the inhabitants who'd been buried in the barrow where the Hobbits found himself, so Aragorn is experiencing his own ancestor's death, eh? Most interesting. And I love the use of the movie speech. Perfect for it!

And the dead man felt the movement of his own bier, eh? Interesting. Poor guy.

Author Reply: Yes, Merry's experience was the inspiration for this trip into the wars with Angmar =) But it was not king Arveleg who felt the movement of his own bier, and putting him into the barrow, that was Aragorn's mind, because he was not dead despite reliving Arveleg's last moments. It must have felt like being buried alive, poor guy! Thank you for the review! I'm glad you liked also the movie speech, I didn't feel like writing some inspiring speech of my own when this one was just perfect.

That is a truly powerful chapter - and how well that speech fits in there.

Author Reply: Thank you very much for the review! I don't usually use movie quotes, but it is a *good* speech! =)

Oh my goodness, how suspenseful! *paces and frets*

Author Reply: And that's just the memory of a dead king. But what's the reality? =)
