I liked the brothers conversation but the term prissy wuss sort of threw me out of the moment. It sounded a bit too modern, but maybe that's just me. It was nice to see that there was real affection between the boys though. Well done.

The scene described between Boromir and Faramir is sweet, if a bit lacking in suspense and new developments. What I like a lot about this story is the effortless, fluent way with words as in phrases like " a land remembered solely in stories" - the way old-fashioned phrases flow in without being obvious elements of style, the warm affection between the brothers and the eery moment when Boromir last looks back before departing.
