Destiny's Child  by Mirkwoodmaiden 3 Review(s)

Things are begining to accelerate! Your chapter title says it very well. The quiet moments of concern and fear are interspered with confrontations. I like your back and forth between within your character's heads, and seeing as they see. The quick reference to the bracing February wind brings hope to us, the readers, who know that February and March of the year 3019 of the Third Age of Arda will be busy ones, and bring a complete turn of fate! Where you left us in your "Reunion in Mirkwood" story, it was October 3018. Things were beginning on the western end of their continent which, though they do not know it yet, will impact the folks in this story, very soon! I will gladly still travel with you.

One more fun thing to share. When Katzilla recently posted a prequel to her older story set in this time period, "The Banishment of Eomer" I realized that I had never read that original story. It has 60 chapters, and I did not read longer stories back then. Author leads us on a merry chase between book and "Two Towers" movie-verse, with alternate original story premise woven through. All three stories together, I have decided it is high time I read the book again. Especially the part with Helm's Deep!

Hello! So happy that you are with me on these two journeys! They have been fun to write. Gap filling stories always interesting to me. I do like to give perspective of the different characters POV. Sticking to only one character's POV is so limiting.

Indeed these are the dark times of the soul for the Rohirrim especially Eowyn, but as you say these days will lead to happier times. These chapters will lead into those more hopeful, happier times.

My next "Reunion" chapter will make an appearance soon!

I have started reading Katzilla's stuff it is indeed wonderful! I need to find more time to read!

Thank you for staying with me! :-)

Hope you and yours are well and safe!

Oh dear, it begins for real, the tragedy the hardship takes it's course.
My heart broke when Théodred rode away, knowing he will not return alive.
I feel so much for Éowyn.
And Grima is getting worse and worse. I cannot stand the way he looks at her with this naked longing.
I brave myself now for what is to come.

Hello! Yeah this and the next couple of chapters are going to hard-going. Such despair and unhappiness. Grima is feeling empowered as his plans start working. Ick!

I keep telling myself in the end Eowyn is happily together with Faramir! This story will join with "Bound by duty; Bound by joy." and end there in the Houses of Healing.

Hope you are well and safe.

“Grima is right. Saruman will protect us."

What an insidious lie to persuade the king to believe. How the hearts of Theoden's family must be breaking to see him fall so far under Grima's spell and lose his own perception of the dangers facing Rohan. There are evil days ahead...

Hello! I hope this response finds you and yours safe and well. As you say these are indeed dark times for Eowyn and her family. Their sadness and despair has been hard to write and I hope I am doing them justice! Thanks for always reviewing this story. It is very much appreciated!

Stay safe Mellon nin!
