This is a nice love story. Of two men who found each other early in their lives, loved each other, chose different paths and come together again years later. Both military, both living with the scars of such of life. John rebuilt his life with school, studying psychology but living day to day without any joy. Kevin, forced to retired after a disastrous incident where soldiers and prisoners were killed. This is a nice long original fanfic like story with some short cuts (the Lord of the rings references become annoying fast) that I could overlook because I liked Kevin and John. No over the top cutsey stuff, just two men that find each other again and who love each other very much.
