It's so great to have you back writing fanfiction! I'm very glad you brought this to a close and though I know you were worried about how it flowed after writing it in fits and starts over so many years, I think it's just fine. I particularly like Faramir and Eowyn and their relationship in this piece-it is a foreshadowing of how great a couple they'll be in the future.

Wow! What a fascinating and disturbing tale! I was really worried for Faramir's sake....

but I love all the ways you knitted together all the threads of this AU (or is it? ;-) )... for example, the unexpected roles that Éowyn and Merry played.

And I was glad that Denethor had a spark of decency in him after all, that could be awakened despite the dark visions of the future implanted by Sauron.

Beautifully done, Altariel.... Thanks for sharing this!

This is such a rich, wonderful story. Throughout I was aware of your very good ear for dialogue, in particular for some reason your Gandalf seems especially right to me. E.g. in chapter 4, "At last, into the quiet, Gandalf spoke. “Once,” he said. “He went against Denethor’s will once. He knew his father’s mind, and he did not bring the Ringbearer before him – nor the Ring.”

Yes, that's Gandalf. And Faramir. And Aragorn. They're really speaking.

While Denethor lived to see Faramir restored to health, he stil met a tragic end. I fear his mind was too emersed in darkness to ever be cured. So very, very, sad. He never got to enjoy his daughter-in-law, much less his grandchildren.
