I liked this story -- dramatic and emotionally effective. I like the loyalty and friendship between Faramir's men here and the clear trust they have in their Captain.
thank you so so much Zdenka!! Renil is a character in my chapter fic Captains and Pawns who has taken on a life of his own. He and Faramir as young men had their first battle together and their loyalty and friendship has been firm ever since. And also Faramir instills such trust.. He has that best of leadership skills..give your team the skills to do the job and then get out of the way :)
cheers and thanks

A very good story--one hopes that Mablung and Renil survived that terrible night.
thank you so much Himring... I am so pleased you liked it.
yes they did survive. Their experience after is coming up in Captains and Pawns where we have almost made it to the battle of the Pelennor. Mablung, despite his smashed hand, tries to leave w the rest of Rangers for Cormallen but gets bollocked and ordered out of the line by Imrahil :) Renil goes w the Host of the West and is with Faramir at Osgiliath. He helps Gandalf with the wains as ordered after hearing the horrible prediction from his Captain that in the forthcoming battle those downed on the field will not need tending. Faramir knows full well the size of the force that will pour upon them.
