|Reviews for Bound by Duty|
| shallowness 3/6/13 . chapter 21
I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this fic. You made Lothiriel a very sympathetic heroine, but true to her likely upbringing. The way that her adherence to duty and her natural enough feelings intertwined were nicely handled, and as we saw her grow to appreciate her husband and his people, you showed what a good Queen she would make beautifully. At its best, the fic balanced action with reflection and realisations and was a very satisfying read.

LBJ - I want you to know that this is my favorite E/L fanfic of all time and I have read it over and over and over again. You are an absolute treasure. I would like to make a request, as many times as I have read it I have missed Eomer's POV and was wondering if you would consider doing a companion piece in his voice that would also fill in some gaps? I really missed the action at the harvest fair on the day after the wedding and the presentation of the horse, Lothiriel saying goodbye to her family as well as Eomer's reactions to his bride and his experiences riding away from her to battle wargs. Certainly this is only a suggestion but to a loyal fan it would be such a great treat! Anyway I realized this last time that I never reviewed and what is the best sort of review? The request for an encore! :-)

This was a lovely story, and I'm so glad I read it. The vibrant detail you poured into it was a welcome delight from some other stories I've recently read. It is clear you are a seasoned writer, and if you haven't already, you should start writing something original for a larger stage. This story made me smile, thank you for taking the time to write and share it!

As you know, I’ve been getting around to reviewing my favourites of your stories, as I think such wonderful fanfiction deserves reviewing. Although I’ve read all your stories, this is my favourite of them all. I have read it 8 times! It would be hard to say what I like the most but here are a few things. The original characters would have to be one major thing, including Hasopad – as a dog lover, I really enjoyed him. The discussion about Zante is delightful, and there is wonderful humour mixed with the serious. I’m a lawyer and interested in medieval justice and so loved ch 16 – really well done. Too many things to say. I think what I like the most though is the detail, the clothes, food, descriptions, and the pace, which is somehow gentle without being slow. I also love the reason that L is crying, which is so right and just what would really happen. I hope you are proud of this story, you should be. Ali

I've absolutely fallen in love with Eomer/Lothiriel stories and I just can't stop reading them. Do update!

Oh, my goodness. That was very well done. This story is SUPERB!
It is a truly glorious piece, with beautiful details and wonderful imagery. I liked the developing of their feelings and the interaction between the characters was excellent!
So glad Éomer could win her over...not that I expected anything else...;-)
I simply couldn't stop reading! Kudos to you! This was fantastic!
Thank you so much for sharing it!

I enjoyed this one as much as I have enjoyed your other stories. You really have a talent to make the characters act in a very believable way. The are no one-dimensional but extremely good drafted and round.
You also have the right balance between dialog and description. I also find extremely interesting how you are able to play with the characters and give them completely different personalities in the different stories you write.
But not only the main characters, all the other ones as well as the description of the live as you see it in Gondor and Rohan are extremely well described and very easy to believe.
And I enjoyed that this was such a long story. Long but never boring. Thanks

amazing story! i especially love how you based it off of something tolkien had written ;P and how it all came full circle was really cool

I am teary eyed now LBJ. This was very precious an absolute jewel of a story and you are by far one of my fave authors. I worried that I might not like the story of an arranged marriage for my fave couple but you more than did it justice :)
