You really do capture his dreams and dark mood extremely well here. Anyone can see that he has so many things to be sad about that it mustíve been difficult for him to go on at times. I like the fact that the chapter ends on a light note though with him seeing Merry in the garden again. GW

Author Reply: Thank yoU! i like to balance dark and a more hopeful time and i think that is what Tolkien does best in how he wrote LotR too.

All too likely a nightmare. At least he has those nearby who will prod him back to a full life.

Love this look at Faramir's recovery from his wound and the Black Breath. Well written.

Author Reply: Thanks so much! I really enjoyed writing that and it was easy to no think about the other characters other than the hobbits that really need comfort after a hard time. I think i'll write more postQuest Faramir fic to explore even anniversary remembrances and how to deal in the present.

he felt very alone in this world... Such a sad thing, on top of everything else that was darkening his heart. I think Merry felt the same way, as all of his friends had gone East -- which may have linked him with Faramir, and with Eowyn, even more strongly.

Author Reply: Yes, their bonding in the HoH is something that i loved that Tolkien hinted at and never wrote too much about. There should be more fics that develop this and gap fill this better. I believe that they have so much in common. Waiting for news is the toughest as their loved ones all went forth to the Black Gate.
