| Caderyn chapter 2 . 1/29/2004
Ok, I don't normally review until I've finished a story, but I just gotta tell you what I like about this fic so far.
To make it easier on me, I'll just put it in a list:
-The summary basically. I always wonder about the details of the Faramir/Eowyn courtship (gotta be my fave part of the book).
-Immaculate grammar and expression. Amazing!
-Eowyn's thoughts about how she was not like other women; how she was more warrior-like instead of girly. It's exactly why she is one of three of my favorite characters (the other two are Faramir and Sam). I don't know, I just LOVE that she's so strong and courageous.
-Your portrayal of Merry and his interaction with Eowyn. I LOVE reading about their friendship. Merry is definitely my second favorite hobbit and I'm glad that he and Eowyn were the ones who slew(?) the witch-king. It sort of forged a bond between the two of them, which you portrayed brilliantly here.
Okay, I'm gonna read the next few chapters now. Excellent work!

ah, Merry is being so genuinly kind and (for lack of a better word) sweet. v. hobbit like. wonderful thus far...

Oh! This was such abeautiful, sweet fic! I'm so glad to have read it!

This was an absolute fantastic story. From the beginning I absolutely loved it, they way you captured their emotions and feeling and portrayed it in words was simply wonderful. I especially loved the epilogue just thought it was perfect. Anyway, this was a fantastic fic.

You have a rare talent. I have read this over six times, and I never grow tired of it. Not only do you capture secret feelings that everyone has but noone ever mentions, you present it in a lyrical, magical way, as the bards of old did. Instead of your story sticking into my mind as with Tolkien, it subtly escapes the farthest reaches of my memory. As a fan of both Eowyn and stupid fat hobbits, I thank you for your gift both to myself and all of .

This was an amazing story. While a little "modern" at times (mainly slang), it shows a grasp of Tolkien's characters that made me laugh out loud only to be crying the next moment. Bravo!

This is just lovely. I enjoyed the whole thing; your characterizations were right on. I am such a huge fan of LOTR, having read the books at least 25 times over the years. I am always a bit nervous about fanfics about characters I have spent so many happy hours with; the potential for disappointment is huge. Happily, your story did not disappoint at all. Well done, and I'm glad I found it. Thanks to HonorH for her rec.
| HonorH chapter 12 . 1/11/2004
I adore this story! I've been looking for good Eowyn/Merry friendship stories or Eowyn/Faramir romances, and this is both rolled up into one beautifully-written package. I'll be reccing this to the four winds and looking up more of your stuff. Thank you for a wonderful story!
| Aspiring Shieldmaiden chapter 12 . 1/11/2004
Cool story! Very , very sweet.
| Newmoon chapter 2 . 1/11/2004
Aw! This is so sweet. It was recommended to me by a friend and I'm glad I decided to read it. I'll be sure to read the rest later!
| Speechless again chapter 12 . 1/9/2004
A beautiful finish. Simply beautiful.
| Speechless too lazy to log in chapter 8 . 1/6/2004
Wow...just wow. This story is so addictive! A friend recommended it to me because I am a big fan of all Éowyn/Faramir fics and somehow I missed this one! Now I am up to Chapter 8 and cannot wait until tomorrow when I can begin reading again (stupid school).
You truly have a gift with words, and your characterizations of Éowyn, Merry, and Faramir are so pure and real. I thank you for taking the time to go into the "behind-the-scenes" romance of Éowyn and Faramir, for although quite quick, I found their courtship one of the most enjoyable parts of ROTK (on a less monumental note, that is). Your vision of the way these characters act during everyday scenes are what make this fic so great. I really, really wish I could write like you.
Thank you again for writing such an excellent fic. On a website where badfics run rampant, it is such a relief to find a quality LOTR fic!
| Caitlin chapter 12 . 1/6/2004
How lovely! Truly an original piece, and the frienship between Merry and Eowyn is endearing and heart warming. You have the psyche of a Hobbit down pat. However, I mantain that the absence of the proposal is jarring, though I realize Tolkien did it quite well enough the first time around. What a lovely fanfic, all together! I shall check into more of your writing. Thank you for an hour of pleasure and laughs and happy sighs.
