The three chapters in this story compliment each other very well. My favorite was probably the first one, because it showed Boromir and Faramir interacting. And not only interacting but understanding. They're very different in many respects, but they seem to have realized that these differences can work to make a better whole, such as Faramir teaching Boromir to swim and Boromir deciding that it is a soldier's skill.

A beautiful trilogy of stories not originally meant to be together. But they do go together perfectly and form a whole. I like the otherworldly feel of the second chapter and the peaceful resolution of the third.

Finely crafted series of pieces connected by the Anduin. Boromir learns to swim (breathe before you dive) and uses his skills after the fall of the Osgiliath bridge. The brothers help each other. Faramir sees his dead brother in the Elven boat and has to get without support out of the water. Faramir sends his experiences as drawings and words in a little paper boat down the river accounting to his brother all what has changed. Minor
