This is a much needed respite for all of them. I rejoice for all of them for what they have accomplished.

Author Reply: It certainly is, isn't it? And they have accomplished much. K.G.

Not a "little bit of food," then! I loved the details of the feast. Glad that now Joey has the assurance he can still serve Boromir while they remain within the Citadel, but he is free to go when the time comes to face the next part of their time in Middle Earth.

Author Reply: Yep, Joey doesn't have to quit his job yet! And he's back in his parents' care, which is good.

Nope, not a little bit of food! =) K.G.

Lovely to see the family all together again. Poignant reference to putting away childish things. The storytelling reminds me a bit of the little scene after the grand celebration at Cormallen, when the Fellowship were sitting around telling their tales, and Sam was amazed at how tall Pippin had grown, and Gimli remembered "the look of a hobbit's foot" and how he nearly tore out his beard... And Pippin being sent to bed because he'd only got up from his sickbed the day before, if I'm remembering canon and not just the fanfic version.

Author Reply: Yes, that's canon. And I agree: it is so good that the entire McCloud family is back together, if not at the campsite!

I love that Halbarad was saved by the "pretty" stone! And that Boromir was only hurt but didn't die. Sort of like "all sad things becoming untrue". (I mangled the quote, sorry.)

Lovely bit of storytelling and hitting the high points.

another way of flying the friendly skies! I think I just snorked. LOL!

Author Reply: Glad you liked it! =)

Yeah, I'm sure you remember the commercials in which that line was used. It certainly made for an apt quote in this case, don't you think? =)

Yep, thanks to the McCloud children, certain characters have survived who would have otherwise died! K.G.

I do love reading about feasts, and this one is quite wonderful.

they've learned there are more good things to eat than burgers, chicken nuggets, and pizza.

Yes indeed! :)

Author Reply: Yep! =) K.G.

Oh, yes--time for several long talks! How wonderful that all were properly welcomed and honored. And the reunion was just right.

Author Reply: Yes, the McClouds have a lot to catch up on! And yes, the honors and rewards were given to everyone who deserved them. Thank goodness the family is together once more! K.G.

Oh, what a relief! I have so missed SoA. I'm glad to see the new chapter. It's midnight, I just finished work for the day, and my eyes are closing, so I'll have to save this for breakfast. Or lunch break. So looking forward to it!

Author Reply: Hope you enjoy it! And I know what you mean. I missed Stories of Arda, too! K.G.

The site is back up, hooray! And your chapter was well worth the wait. What a marvelous reunion, and joyous celebration.

Lady Kaylee, daughter of Steven, is proclaimed an honorary Ranger of the North.

That's a wonderful detail, as are all of the honors proclaimed here. :)


Author Reply: Yes, hallelujah! And I am so glad you enjoyed the chapter. Yep, the entire family is back together!

Finding that balance in parenting can be such a challenge!
I'm glad things were not worse and that Sador is on the mend. The mention of the errand lads' dormitory makes me think of RabidSamFan. How I ate up her chapters and wanted more! (Speaking of eating, that chicken soup sounds awfully good...)

I haven't given much thought to how it must have felt to live in the City, waiting for the King to return and take up his throne. Interesting to contemplate the vibe and the tone, gathered at the well or in the marketplace, going about "normal" business (which probably seems anything but "normal" and taken for granted after what so very nearly happened, I'd imagine).

Author Reply: I wish rabidsamfan would write some more Tolkien stories!

Living in Minas Tirith must have been hard in many respects; however, for generations, it was all that its citizens knew.

Yes, the necessary challenge in raising a child is a challenge, and that's a fact! Thank goodness Sador wasn't seriously hurt.
