Oh, dear. This obviously wasn't the way any of them wanted to do this.

I love the hints at Rohirric wedding traditions that you've woven into the narrative.

Okay, now, how is a wise and loving king (and brave warrior) going to manage to navigate his way through this one, I wonder?

Author Reply: Lindelea!

Yeah! It wasn't ideal for any of them. In the writing of this chapter I pondered various ways that this knowledge should become known. In the end this way just flowed as I was writing the story. How will Théoden navigate this...Very gently and with much groveling...to some respect.

"I love the hints at Rohirric wedding traditions that you've woven into the narrative."

You know me I love to create ceremonies and then write about them. There are some faint use of Viking imagery and ideas. I am so glad you liked it.

Stay Safe, Mellon nin!

Poor Eowyn, my heart really breaks for her. Her only friend gone, her only dream about to be dissolved, adrift in a world from which she feels detached... *sigh*

Author Reply: Shirebound!

So lovely to hear from you! :-)) Yeah! I really feel for Eowyn. And it isn't going to get better any time soon either. But I tell myself, remember she does end up very happy with Faramir. As I have written about extensively. :-) Two people who so deserve the happiness they get! This story will eventually merge with "Bound by Duty; Bound by Joy" where they both get to be happy!!

Stay Safe! mellon nin!

UH - OH! The day of reckoning has arrived! At this point, someone should take her aside and remind her of what she has gained from her training, confidence, physical strength, etc. Unfortunately, it could not be any of the three in that room right now. I doubt she would listen! Oh, this is going to be good! The best part of any story where you already know the end is "how do you get there?" I will be watching to see how poor Theoden gets out of this.

Poor Theoden! He was trying to do the right thing by his angry seven year old niece! You are right. The most fun in a gap filling source story is writing about how they arrive at their destination. Unfortunately the road for Eowyn will get more rocky before it gets better. Which of course in Eowyn's case is being very happily married to Faramir, which I have written about extensively already! I am having a very good time writing this story.

Haven't written it yet but yes, the three that she trusts most in the world, her brother, her cousin and her uncle are all complicit and it will be a while before she will forgive them. There is one other that she will probably turn to but I will save that name for the writing of the chapter!

Thank you so much for writing and telling me what your reactions to the story were!

Stay Safe! mellon nin!
