This is a really neat idea! I love how the letters were all from her, but we still got a really good idea of what his letters were like. I'm interested to see what else you have in store!

I like this a lot, although some of Lothiriel's phrases seem a little too 'modern.' Most of the time your writing is sophisticated but there are a few lapses...
But I really like your take on Lothiriel... she seems very young and idealistic, which is refreshing - I've read way too many fics where she is rather jaded and sharp-tongued. You have a good combination of sweetness and spirit... Me likes!

What a hoot! You made Belecthor be Ivriniel's husband and she gets to be "sweet" for a change! I love it!
And I loved the progression in the letters as we see Lothiriel going from very formal to almost already in love with her betrothed. The formal request for permission and then the teasing request for the same latter on. And I like seeing both Eomer and Lothiriel unfold as people through what she writes about them and their actions.
Letters can be a tricky format to use effectively, especially if you do it only one-sided, but you handled it well. I look forward to your other scenarios.
Reading some of your reviews, I'm not sure your readers all understand that each of these is stand-alone, and that subsequent ones won't "continue this" in the next one. Guess they'll find out after two or three are posted.

"Ivriniel is a darling, but I really don’t get along with her husband. He’s written a book on deportment and now thinks he can lay down the law to all and sundry as to what is permissible behaviour for a Gondorian maiden. If you don’t hear from me again it’s probably because I’m in gaol, awaiting my trial for murder! Although anybody who has actually met Belecthor couldn’t possibly fault me for putting an end to his sorry existence."
wo! Shoutout! Yeah! )

Oh this is probably the best that I've read in a long time - I thoroughly enjoyed it!

You wrote another one :D YAY! I read Willow-41z's and I think LadyBluejay has her own one-shots-story as well (or someone does, anyway). I must confess to being addicted to them :D I love the idea of seeing a lovely one-shot deposited in my inbox. I love your's :D Please update soon...you remember my Sicilian-rat cousins, don't you? ;D

What a nice idea! At first I was a little dissapointed that we didn't get to see Eomer's replies, but from what Lothiriel writes, they're not really necessary.
I really like your characterizations of Eomer and Lothiriel; Lothiriel is very sweet and cheerful, which is somewhat unusual from other fanfiction. However, I was a little surprised with how well she went along with an arranged marriage without meeting her future husband at all, but she seems to be very optimistic. Fortunately for her, Eomer is *not* like her uncle, and seemed to really appreciate her manner. It's really nice to see that he has a great sense of humor; that certainly made me laugh out loud. : ) It makes his character much more interesting...
So overall, this was fantastic and I really enjoyed reading it-I will be looking forward to more of this hopefully in the not-so-distant future. : D
