Very, very touching. You captured all three characters very well, especially considering you were stuck within the confines of a single scene. I would've liked to see some of Eomer and Eowyn's POVs, but you conveyed their sentiment well just through Theoden's observations. Great job; thanks for sharing! :-)

I really enjoyed reading your story. You're right, I also would had loved to see a bit more of Theodens and Eomers relationship and feelings after the spell was broken. I think you described the feelings and the bonds between them very well, I like your side of vision, very much.
And I like your writing-style, wish you would write more stories, love.

Nice description of Theoden's relationship with his family. I hope that injured boy was no younger than 11 or 12. I'm not crazy about any boy being made to fight in a war but there is a difference between 12 year old boy and a 7 year old boy.

I hope that the boys that were made to fight were 11, 12, and 13 and not little boys. I know that men are stronger than women, but to make little 6 and 7 year old boys fight instead of full grown women in their 20's is rediculous. A full grown woman is definately stronger than a little child boy or girl.

I liked it. A lot. You are totally right about the book not showing how Theoden, Eomer, and Eowyn act as a family
| SubtleBubbles chapter 1 . 8/21/2006
aw that was sweet!
| The 13th Leprechaun chapter 1 . 3/29/2004
Yeah, I agree with you on these terms. I did think this was pretty good, too. NIce writing style.
Also, about my fic, you pointed out something and there's two things i wanna say about it. I'm not disagreeing with you, because I just noticed it myself. _U Oops...
WHen you said that you didn't think Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, and Gandalf wouldn'y shrug off the fact that Merry's not there, I kinda remembered that. I have two explanations for that
1) They assume he and Pippin are safe
2) I could change their story slightly...
I don't really know which one to go with...
Anyway, like I said, good fic! _ I salute you!

That story completely rocked! I totally agree there is not enough of Eomer's and Theoden's realation in the movies, not to mention that Eomer is my fav. character! Rock on!
| Toria chapter 1 . 1/31/2004
aww, wow! that was so sweet! i really liked the interaction that you created between Eomer and Theoden. I too was disappointed in the lack of interaction in the Two Towers and you've done a really good job to make up for it. Keep up the good work! *adding story to favourites*

This actually brought a tear to my eye.
| Alyxzia chapter 1 . 1/19/2004
It really shows how Theoden feels after the battle when he thinks Eomer might be injured and the remorse at the banishment paper he signed while under shadow.
| LynnPens chapter 1 . 12/29/2003
Hey Sparx! This is good. I like the bond between the king and his niece and nephew. :D
| misslijieblueeyes chapter 1 . 12/25/2003
I *love* this fic, Merry! You are such a fabulous writer! I love it! Write more, woman, write more! You can feel such father/son-like love between Eomer and Theoden...way to capture it!

Brilliant, very good interpretation of what might have occured and not shown on the film. I was amazed when Eowyn was shown greeting Aragorn and not her own .
