What an amazing story Lilan! I am a bit teary-eyed having it come to an end. I feel blessed to have found it today as I usually search for Eomer & Lothiriel stories and of course this one did not ever pop up before. Very good story-telling. I always love Eomer and I like the way you characterized him but this Lothiriel grew on me as she transformed. It was really neat to see the relationship between Lothiriel and Faramir fleshed out. I only wish that there had been a few more chapters in between Ch 17 & 18 for the wedding and first baby. :)

"How nice that you were wounded and did not ride off with the host."
Lol! Eowyn too must be happy Faz has been pursued by Nazguls and then shot down, so that he was too weak to go and had to wait with her. So am I, the Houses of Healing scenes are so good. Poor guy, all those who pretend to love him most are glad he was wounded...
Excellent chapter, as always! I'm glad she didn't get raped, she's so young and refreshing, it would have spoiled everything.

Wow, very dramatic chapter! Poor Thiri...
I don't know however if Faramir would let himself be comforted in this way by Eowyn, or if she would feel this intimate with him, at this stage of their romance...

"Oh, is she? Not a matron seven feet tall with huge hands and feet? Did you not tell me she had beaten the Witch King of Angmar?"
"Yes, but that does not mean she is the size of a statue in the Great Hall!"
I love their relationship!
Eomer shows his good manners...

I really love your version of Lothiriel, she is very well written, so understandable and so funny!
I'm not good at comforting people either... If someone is crying before me I won't run away but rather stay stunned, immobile, panicked, looking at him/her without knowing what to do. If I notice myself I will probably manage to utter a little "Are you Ok?".
Your Faramir is wonderful too! (I nearly felt like crying with him)

I hope Aragorn gave him water...he is thirsty... (why do I feel so distressed over that! lol)

I. Love. Your. Stories. I stumbled upon this one recently, and... indescribable. Enchanting. Beautiful. I'm so glad Lothiriel and the Warden became good friends afterwards. Her relationship with Eomer does seem rushed, though... I mean, hardly anything has happened between them, and then when he arrives, they kiss. It should have happened step-by-step, like Eowyn and Faramir. But don't get me wrong, your story is great *clicks add to favorites* Ü Continue!

Oh, and a perfect ending too:-) Very good job on this story. I'm sad it's done, but it really was time to end it, I suppose. Lovely job of balancing angst and fluff. Thanks for the treat!

You have finsihed it of with a perfect ending mellon nin.
The funeral was so full of emotion, and it really brought them all together.
Faramir with Lothiriel was so sweet, and she takes so well care of her cousin.
The ending was also just perfect.
Eowyn getting upset because they had Elboron on a horse, and being pregnant again.
It was so emotionall and funny at the same time, and that is something you do very well.
Lothiriel have developed so much during this, and it have been a pleasure to read it, I have enjoyed every word so much.
I will look forward to seeing what else you might write.
Kidest Regards, Elenhin

A deserving end! YOur last chapters like a highlight!
You had a good balance of narrating and dialogue, and there were so many different feelings in it, sorrow, grief, foreshadowing (grief), love, fear, humour etcetc- you have to stop when it's good, and that's what you did. Congratulations and a thank you to you.

Lovely! This was a wonderful story!

This is a lovely ending to one of the best stories I have read in a long time, I am sad to see it end and hope you will write more stories. It takes a real gift to make a minor character so alive and interesting and I love the way you depict all your characters as so warm and you for a great read.
