Another very enjoyable chapter. I especially liked Eomer's advice to just "look haughty". It is fascinating to see the way in which the relationship between the two is developing.
Sorry to hear about your earache - I hope that you are feeling much better now.
Love and hugs,

of suggestions from Eomer

Excellent! I am in love with your story-is that odd? Not trying to be, but I love this chapter and the charming yet humorous tension between Lothiriel and Eomer. You've built it up beautifully.

Great chapter! I can't wait for the next one!

I am so sorry about the earache! I HATE those! Anyways, this was an excellent chapter! I really enjoyed it, and I can't wait to see what happens next. Please update as soon as you can!

Finally it's getting interesting - no, it's been before but now, you know... they reached a point where Lothiriel is about to decide how to go on. Keep on to the plan or accept that there's so much more than just an arranged marriage between the two of them.
I hope there won't be too much trouble with her father and (for sure) I'm hoping for a happy ending.
I still like this story so much and it's a pity it won't have a thousand chapters...
Looking forward to the next chapter, I send viele liebe Grüße,
PS: Bei Ohrenschmerzen hat meine Mutter mir früher immer einen Zwiebelwickel gemacht. Stinkt zwar ganz fürchterlich, zieht aber die Entzündung wunderbar raus. Gute Besserung!

Yes! You updated! I love this story. She fell asleep on Eomer? That is so romantic. I love it. And the way she dismissed Lady Eilinel was very masterful. That lady -or is she?- is despicable! And I loved thae part about her dress floating around her like a jellyfish's tentacles. I am eager to see how Eomer and Lothiriel actually realize that they're in love. Well, I am very glad you updated because I am leaving tomorrow for a week of work in Mexico, and now I will not worry about this story. Well, I will worry but not as much. So, I'll go. Nice work and update soon!

What a wonderful installment.
They really aren't the horrible people I thought they were.
Can't wait for more!

“That’s not the problem! How can I put them on with everybody watching us!”
That's bad..very bad..and not to mention embrassing..I probably would have rather freeze then actually take them off..I'd be too uncomfortable in nothing but a cloak..that could fall off..I mean, not actually fall of, but slip off..very embrassing indeed..
“Not very respectful towards their elders and thinking of their next meal all the time.”
xDD True true..same here, well, not really about the respectfulness, except for my older sister..and a few cousins..other than that, I'm pretty respectful..but food..food yummy..I'm actually pretty hungry right now!
“Remember,” he whispered to her with an impudent grin, “just look haughty.”
xD But that's her dad! I mean..how can you look haughty towards your dad? anyway..awesome chapter, keep on writing!

"It felt right" - oh how very telling!
I also liked the subtle touch on "her cushion shook with laughter", it conveyed exactly how you should realise the obvious but when you are waking up everything is blurred!
And what a paradox it is that a man's chest can be hard yet cushionlike...luckily!
Lady Godiva here we come...shows where Eomer's mind is wandering!
This may seem a strange comment, but I also like your use of verbs tied in with speech, for example .."she demurred" or ..."she offered". so many authors end up using nothing so you don't know who is speaking, or just keep using "said". It is a much more subtle and effective way of showing character and action and I admire your use of it! Even if it's probably unintentional.
And a masterful hint of Eomer's leadership qualities, of course you returned to calling him the "King of Rohan". Intended to remind us of his position or his new-found intimacy with Lothiriel that has led to her calling him Eomer?
Lady Eilinel as a jellyfish - very apt! Her little tentacles reaching out to grab the nearest eligible man :)
Eomer to me seems like a... mischievious imp with a front of lionish royalty!

Worth waiting for, Lia. It just came in time - as I completed my Epilogue, went to email to send it to my beta, and there it was - Black Eyes- waiting for me. So nice to read over a cup of tea especially when feeling virtious because I've finished!
I love the way you are writing Eomer,I think I would have found another island to share. One that you could only get off at low springs - that's a couple of times a month! LBJ

Oh, what a mess Lothiriel will be in when that cloak begins to slip! I must say, the Lady Godiva reference had me giggling, though.
I did notice one thing you might want to fix: you said that Lady Eilinel gave Eomer a "besieging" look, when I think you meant "beseeching." Or perhaps you just had battle tactics on your mind.
I look forward to the next chapter!

Oh I LOVE this one! Please continue soon!
| Amandalie 6/20/06 . chapter 5
that was another lovely chapter. it's nice to see the growth in their relationship-they are talking more now, laughing, and realizing and learning things about each other. i like how lothiriel is frustated at men. i enjoyed the whole eomer with no shirt on and then lothiriel's struggle to wether remove her outer clothes or not- very cute. i like the title of the chappie, it reminded me of the movie pirates of the caribbean. anyways, i hope u are feeling better. take care- Amanda
P.S i never expected eomer to be compared to denethor
