loved the wedding; it was very special and felt very intimate

Okay, I'm going to take a moment to squeal like a school girl now.
Okay, I kinda am a school girl.
That was lovely, really like your wedding vows and the traditions, about her holding his honor (and that tale about the Shieldmaiden. Fantastic :P). And when he threw Guthwinë into the air! Poor Lothiriel, I can understand how that'd stop her heart.
Am really looking forward to more and the rest of the wedding. I'm just in love with LotR weddings lately. And only 3, so after this *2* chapters left? Oh no! D:
Hope you update soon!

That was just an amazing chapter. Just amazing. AMAZING. I loved it. Heh-the next chapter is even MORE anticipated now. :)

FIVE DAYS! Wow! You weren’t kidding when you said you already had rough drafts of the rest of this. As excited as I am over an update, it also means it’s going to be over that much sooner, which makes me sad, but might be some of your purpose.
I really did love her chat with Imrahil, and his stepping in to help her down from Nimphelos was a lovely gesture as he lets her go. Also, her reactions to Ceolwen trying to help her were quite funny, falling back to her natural Gondorian reticence? Her attempt to put Éomer in his place was rather charming, the ‘storming of the bride’ was hilarious. You really do need to eventually write that abduction one shot if you’re going to keep bringing it up! :P It was hysterical to think of Rían & Emeldir waiting to abduct him to claim what Lothíriel had ‘stolen away.’
I’m really glad you included something here about the hopefulness for the future that this particular wedding would have for the Rohirrim people, especially given the timeframe.
I truly loved the details you came up with for the ceremony, the reference to the kennings device you’d introduced earlier in the story, the laying of his honor in her hands with Guthwinë, but throwing it up in the air was both unexpected, throat checking, and exhilarating, which I’m sure is what you intended. The two actual weddings you’ve written have been rather different, but both had really lovely details that really seem relevant to the culture.
“Lothíriel Queen,” I’m so happy you used this way of expressing her new title, I always think this would be how the Rohirrim would refer to their queen, plus there’s something very personal, IMO, about them putting the title last.

This chapter is really great.
Please write the next one soon.

You really have a talent for inventing convincing customs: Based on traditional elements, but with your own original embellishments.
Also, I think you captured very realistically the feelings of a bride such as Lothiriel. I especially liked the bit about being surprised that one doesn't feel vastly different.

For all the nerves, the wedding's the easy part, it's living with him later that can be a challenge! Wonderful chapter and beautiful wedding, a perfect example of the way the Riddermark would wed! Update soon!

Oh! I can't stop smiling! :) Yay! I'm so happy for them!
I would have been so scared if I was in Lothiriel's spot when Eomer threw his sword up like that! Whew, it's a good thing that Eomer was so skilled at that. lol
Hehehe... "I know all about it. My family breeds horses." I thought that was so funny. lol

That was so cute! And the throwing of Guthwine would totally have freaked me out. Flying swords are just not recommended for safety. But then again, it IS Eomer, and I would probably feel safe with him whatever he was doing. Maybe. I'm so happy they are married! And I loved the vows. That was perfect.
We're coming toward the end and though I love each chapter, there are soon to be no more. I guess you will just have to start another version of their tale! lol.
Have a great week!

At last, they are married. It will be interesting to see what kind of trouble she gets into as his wife. Now all I have to do is wait for LBJ to marry the happy couple...Elwen.
| Andi-Scribbles 2/2/09 . chapter 29
...and, of course, the night ;)
| Anearin 2/2/09 . chapter 29
I like how you made Lothiriel wear a dress of Morwen's. And I thought the idea of the customs of the sword, both gifting it to Lothiriel and throwing it into the air were both good ideas :) Very much enjoyed it:D
Until next time

“Thank you. For loving me. And for letting me follow my heart.”
...“The King of Rohan is coming,” my father said.
Oh, sure, make me cry! I sit down expecting a lovely read at the end of a long day and you make me cry! For shame!
But, I suppose I will forgive you for creating such a wonderful wedding and wedding vows and scary traditions!
Exquisite chapter, m'dear!
| zentry 2/2/09 . chapter 29
first Ceolwen s talk, later the crowd at Edoras, then the tossed sword... as if getting married wasn t enought to get her nervous.
Hopefully the next events would help her relax or she s going to run away from her wedding night ;)
I m really loving the story, please keep it comming.
| Aeflid 2/2/09 . chapter 29
YAY. They're married, woo! Gee, it's such a relief to see that. Although I'm very surprised at the lack of... well, romance. No stares or sweet words given to, I'm sure, a very beautiful Lothiriel? It seems almost out-of-character of Eomer to not at least comment on the beauty of his bride. Other than that, lovely udpate and I can't wait to read more!
