Leaving home; Coming Home  by Mirkwoodmaiden 2 Review(s)
LindeleaReviewed Chapter: 4 on 4/3/2020
I like the idea of the King's quarters being kept against his return, even though it had deteriorated into a ceremonial gesture rather than an expression of any real hope. I love the airiness and light in the description of Arwen's solar.

And Arwen and Eowyn coming to an understanding over the, um, liveliness! of their respective brothers! LOL! But definitely providing common ground for the two to meet on.

Hmmm. Arwen the matchmaker... "Go off and do something kingly..." (And now I wish to put similar sentiments into Diamond's mouth, speaking to Pippin...) And of course he's not fooled, and knows she's up to something, but their mutual trust and understanding is enough that both know it is for the purpose of something good.

Hope this finds you well.

I read I think in ROTK something about the King's House and thought to work that into the story. It only made sense that this would devolve into just a ritual than any real hope! Also thinking the architecture of Minas Tirith in the ROTK film I tried to match what I thought Arwen's solar would look like.

Arwen is clearly pained over her break with her father but that is not something Eowyn can help her with at this point so they talk about what they do have in common.

I was laughing when typing the "something kingly" line! LOL But yes Aragorn does trust Arwen to continue with what she is planning!!

Thanks so much for all the encouragement!

((virtual hugs))

“That is enough of that! You go off and do something kingly—” Arwen said playfully

I love that so much!
