Stories featuring Frodo and Faramir are some of my favorites. The two seem to have so much in common, and you've caught that feeling very well in this story. I could almost feel the heat where Frodo was sitting, and smell the dust and flowers and hear all the noise of rebuilding going on. And the sense of peace and quiet and coolness once Faramir had taken Frodo into the tomb was just as palpable. Their conversation was so quiet and healing too, for both of them. A lovely fic, Elanor.

This is such a warm and gentle story. It was a pleasure to read it again.

And Daffodil Bolger's lovely illustration is perfect.

Gosh, I remember when I was reading through this while we were proofreading and I just sank right into this story with such pleasure. I ADORE fics with Frodo and Faramir just after quest...I always think to when Faramir promised that they should get a chance to talk if they both survived it all...but then Tolkien never wrote it! SO we can. And yours had such depth and heart. Thanks for posting and for participating in the book!

"Tarondor's mentor told him that -- sometimes -- where you are meant to be is precisely where you are and what is expected of you is precisely what you can do -- no more, no less."

I truly adore that. What a wonderful story.

What a lovely story! I so enjoyed the interaction between Frodo and Faramir and the relaxed, peaceful tone of the entire fic. And I absolutely ate up Faramir carrying tired, reluctant Frodo into the tomb. Very nice!

This is a lovely tale in every way. I like your characterizations very much, especially the telling details like Faramir's recollection of his father's criticism of his gait. And the story of the young king is certainly new to me, so that was delightful as well. Thanks for a very enjoyable read!
