|I so enjoy this story, and as the year draws to a close I wanted to go back and read it. I especially loved your Chieftain's Call, which is what I remember most from it ... Thanks so much for writing (this story and all of them). :-)|
I am kicking around writing a Mettare story for the end of the year -- probably involving how the northern Dunedain might celebrate once the King has returned. What new symbolism and traditions might this time of year take on? If I actually find the time to write such a story, would you mind if I reference Chieftain's Call in it? It would be one of those changed traditions, of course, as the King is come (and he's in Gondor) -- but I would love to have it in the mix....
Hope all is going well w you, and you're taking some time to enjoy the season even in the midst of all the busyness! :-)
Author Reply: Thanks so much and of course you may reference Chieftain's Call. I'm honored both that you'd choose to reread this and that you'd like to borrow from it. :)
I'm doing well, thank you, and enjoying a somewhat relaxed Christmas season so far, which is new and different but completely welcome. Hope your holidays are merry as well!

|Just wanted to mention that I'm giving this story a well-deserved holiday re-read, and I'm loving it just as much the second time around!! |
Author Reply: Awww, thanks for rereading! And for letting me know you're rereading! And for letting my know it's still good as a re-read! *g*

|I loved the idea of Aragorn as Santa Claus/ first foot. It was moving how deeply he cares for his people.|
A most enjoyable story.It is still cold enough as if I were reading it in winter, but I'm glad I've finished before next Christmas!
Author Reply: I'm so glad you finally were able to finish this (and yes, glad that it didn't take until next Christmas!) Unlike the last chapter with the oath-taking, this was probably the easiest chapter to write simply because it was so enjoyable to show Aragorn's love for his people on such a face-to-face, practical level. I'm so glad it moved you.
Thanks for the review!

|A beautiful chapter. I loved the oathtaking.|
Author Reply: I'm so glad you liked that... it was probably the hardest thing to write in the entire tale! Thanks for the review!

|I just love the banter between Aragorn and Halbarad. A most enjoyable chapter.|

|It looks as if Denlad had the foresight of the Numenoreans and is seeing visions of what happened. Dirhael is right, Aragorn's greatness has been forged though his hardships.|
Author Reply: Yes, Denlad's at least half Numenorean, so it's very conceivable he might have a bit of foresight now and then, although he's 100% worrywart, so it might just be an overactive imagination, too. Hard to say with these type things, isn't it.
Thanks for the review. :)

I hope real life hasn't been interfering too much, but I am shamelessly begging for another Aragorn, Denlad and Halbarad story....pretty please? :-)
Author Reply: LOL... thank you for the request. *g* I am working on things, but it's slow going thanks to, yes, pesky real life. I appreciate your thinking of me, though! Keep your fingers crossed the real life settles down a bit and lets me get on with writing. :)

|It made me feel cold just reading this and grateful not to be out.Poor Aragorn and his companions.A very vivid chapter.|
Author Reply: Thanks, Linda! It's probably a good chapter to read in the midst of a sweltering summer heat wave. LOL As cold and snowy as this winter has turned out, I may have to write more Snow-struck Aragorn stories to get me through to spring. Thanks for the review!

|I just loved the chickens in this chapter!You gave them such vivid personalities.|
Author Reply: Thanks, Linda! I've known a few chickens, and they always seem to me to have a lot of character, so I tried to infuse Denlad's chickens with some personality. And of course, one of them had to be ornery. It wouldn't do to have two well-behaved birds--where would the fun be in that! Thanks for the review!
