Blackbow and the Ithilien Rangers

 February, 25 2006

The place to discuss this eternal WIP. Also a good place for Ranger questions. Suggestions upon ways to get Faramir's shirt off in the next chapters are also appreciated.

Wow! You're right! I've got the odd bit of cleaning up to do on the story as well.

And what a very fitting end - I especially enjoyed seeing the reason behind Hethlin's reputation as a mūmak-slayer, and her Blackbow epessė.

Congratulations, Isabeau! I'm sure you feel very relieved to cross the story off your list of WIPs. ;-)

Well done!

Thanks so much! Of all of the WIPS, this one and Passages were the ones I was clearest about how to end. I'll probably finish Passages next, then try to tackle Kin-strife and Ultimatums. Probably in that order, but you never know...

I was reflecting back yesterday about how this story was the first time I'd written Boromir, and how he just strolled onstage and took over. He really was never intended to be so centrally involved in everything, but since he stuck his nose in, I think it's appropriate that the last word was his as well.

Gronyats had commented upon his "I think I'm in love," comment, wondering if perhaps he might very well have proposed to Heth had he returned. It's hard to say. In an AU situation where his father was alive, it's a possibility. Now whether she would have accepted is another matter. Elrohir might have had something to say about her binding herself in such a sham of a marriage. Had Denethor been dead, it would not have arisen-Boromir would have continued his relationship with Andra. Besides, in an AU, anyone can live or die, and I could have cleared the way of a certain Rohirric impediment so that Heth could be with her Captain!
