Leaving home; Coming Home  by Mirkwoodmaiden 2 Review(s)

She filled his heart with love and hope. I'd say that's the perfect description for a life partner.

"Does she know you snore?" Ah, Boromir. You'll never be completely lost so long as someone who loves you remembers you.

Ah. I, too have had such conversations with a sibling, working through difficult moments in our shared experience...

I absolutely adore seeing Beregond so light-hearted, joyful and bantering. He sounds true to Pippin's first acquaintance with him, his curiosity about other people and lands, his ready laughter. (ĎAt the table small men may do the greater deeds, we say.')

Ah, so six months after the Battle of the Pelennor Fields, the hobbits are already well on their way home, somewhere between "in sight of the Mountains of Moria" and Rivendell.

It suddenly strikes me as a good thing that Elessar has made Faramir prince of Ithilien. He can make a new home, new memories, happier memories there, and not be haunted by the ghosts of the past.

Hello! So glad that you enjoy Beregond in the story! Yeah!

When writing the story I had to figure out where everyone about six month after March 25 was because I had to figure out who could be at Faramir and Eowyn's wedding. Eomer and Lothiriel get married in 1421 SR so they had to get married before then because Eomer and Lothiriel meet at the wedding. And the hobbits are off to scour the Shire!

True I think it is good idea that Faramir and Eowyn will be starting a new life in Ithilien. He does love Minas Tirith but there are many painful memories as well.

Thank you so much for writing!

Stay safe! :-)

What a moving and wonderful 'homecoming' for Faramir. Your dialogue is delightful. And a standard for Ithilien, such a great idea! I never thought of that.

Hello! So glad you liked it! I thought about it and wondered what would Faramir think about his coming home and this resulted as I was typing! :-) He is still doubtful for about his worth at this point. But his confidence does grow as I have written other stories.

Thank you for the compliment about the dialogue I'm really glad it comes across well. I aim to give each character his/ her own voice. I hope that comes across.

I thought that Dol Amroth has its swan standard (I think I've that somewhere!) so I thought that Ithilien would as well!

Thank you for taking the time to write!

Hope you and yours are well!
