The Ranger and the Eagles  by Cairistiona 15 Review(s)
MirachReviewed Chapter: 3 on 1/6/2011
Beautiful chapter, so very tender and caring... I will use your words and say that I was melting in places. And "if you have any ideas on that subject, feel free to awaken and share them with me" made me almost chuckle. Of course the eagles are a solution, Gandalf! Great saying you have there =) And I liked the "prophetic" part. It's clear that the plan is already somewhere on the edge of Gandalf's mind, but he cannot grasp it yet. I also loved the comparison of Aragorn to the eagle, and I can't wait the see him fly!

Author Reply: Thank you, Mirach! (I do use that "melting" word a lot when I beta your stories, don't I!) I'm so glad you had your own "melty" moments with this. That's the fun of the cccccccccc that follows the "h". And I do like to include a little bit of humor to lighten things up a bit. As for Aragorn flying... wait and see!

Thanks for the review!

Well, the eagles to the rescue!

I miss the merry band of Aragon's Rangers. I re-read some of your old stories and now I'm missing them, especially Halbarad and Denlad, any chances to see them in this story or in a new one?
Hope that poor Aragorn gets better soon, I watched one of those shows of survival in TV, about a girl that was impaled by a tree branch in the mountains, it really looked painful and so strange, she needed surgery and the risk of infection was great, I can only think in poor Aragorn in the wilds so sick.

Waiting for more and thank you.

Author Reply: Thank you, Fantasia... and yes, I do have Ranger stories still to come that include the "regulars" like Denlad and Halbarad. Hopefully this year will be kinder to me than last year and I can actually get them written! But in the meantime, I'm glad you're enjoying this story (and Aragorn *is* a Ranger, after all, so technically I'm not completely abandoning my Ranger tales *g*).

And yes, getting impaled like that is very dangerous--I might be stretching the medical details of this version of a similar accident a bit in the name of dramatic license, but the risk of infection is great. In real life, I don't know that Gandalf's measures would be enough!

Author Reply: Thank you, Ellynn! I does like injecting a bit of humor, I does. ;)

I'm really enjoying this story! I love Gandalf's 'prattle' as he worries for Aragorn. :) Thanks so much for sharing with us... I wish I could find my muse again. sigh

Author Reply: Thank you, Radbooks... so glad you're enjoying this little tale. I hope you do find your muse--I always enjoy your writing.

*shakes bushes, hoping to scare your muse from hiding*

Aaaand here come the eagles! LOL. I have been waiting for that. Well, Gandalf is right, and wrong. It will be the small that win through, but not because they're all thats left. So, head injured Aragorn. That may not turn out well....but when he was glaring at Gandalf I was laughing hysterically. I was again at "wishing for a penny beyond reach when a dragon hoard of mithril is at hand!" That was brilliant, and so Gandalf. Well, anyway, I can't wait to meet the eagles! Great chapter!

Author Reply: Thank you, AzureSkye! Yes, finally... the Eagles are in sight (or at least one is). Took me long enough, didn't it. LOL And yes, poor Aragorn is a bit concussed and out of sorts and exhausted... who can blame him for going back to sleep!

Glad you liked the bits of humor, and thanks for the review!
