Now, that I NEVER saw coming! And of course Aragorn would have that particular hand! This one is indeed a keeper! Thanks for the laugh--had expected a touching moment, but not this particular KIND of touching! Hehehehe!

I like the sense of easy comfort and and friendship this drabble conveys. It was a lovely touch that although Faramir was named as being in place for his brother, there was no sense he was a "mere" replacement, but instead fit seamlessly in.

Oh my! The King of Gondor, former Ranger extraordinare, gets a rather fitting hand. Don't tell me - the man with too many names ended up winning by running a double bluff or something? Short and sweet!

LOL! Not quite the quiet celebration I was envisioning, and yet... I can just see them, gathered around the table, tight collars loosened, etc., winding down after the requisite formalities.

I love the lighthearted, insightful view of these guys and the wonderful little twist. How very true - loyal companions, king and heroes, but still guys.

A nicely written and warm drabble about the Fellowship that got together after Aragorn's coronation -- with Faramir in Boromir's stead. I liked it a lot. Very enjoyable.

That was fun! I love the idea of it! The anachronism just makes it even more fun!
