Vivid, I can almost feel I'm there on the plains. Wild Nature and freedom.

Lovely chapter, the doe as a prelude for Lothiriel.
Beautifully expressed the loneliness of young Eomer.

Simply great: a convincing story is coming to a plausible ending.
I enjoyed reading exceedingly, as not only the main characters are presented in a most impressive way but also the minor ones are original individuals and the interaction of the members of the Éored is without any doubt believable and realistic.
I am more than glad that after all that time you found the energy and inspiration to finish this story, though I have to admit that I'm nevertheless hoping you might from time to time remember "the boys" and add some more episodes. (Sorry, I know I'm greedy, but it's the quality of your story that causes me to be. ;-))
Thank you for a formidable story.

Schön, dass das letzte Kapitel nach so langer Pause keine Eintagsfliege geblieben ist.
Ich habe die anderen Kapitel bereits auf einer anderen site mit großem Interesse gelesen und freue mich auf weitere.
Es ist immer wieder herz- und hirnerfrischend, eine Geschichte zu lesen, die sowohl spannend als auch plausibel in ihrer Gestaltung und dazu noch stilistisch ansprechend ist.
Vielen Dank für deine hervorragende Arbeit.

Excellent chapter as always, I can't wait for the next installment!

Hurray, a new chapter!
But no good news for Eomer or Arnhelm, unfortunately. At least Anlaf's fate is less grim - I was sure he had run into a group of orcs, but freak accidents do sometimes happen. The Riders will have to find a way across the river soon, or else the beacon guards on Halifirien will have to come help the stranded, injured pair, or the goblins will undoubtedly have their way with them.
Just a quick note: it seems that sometimes the é on "Éomer" or "éored" has been left off. Other times, it is there. Not sure if that's a problem with the site or fingers slipping, but every so often, the accented letter is missing.

I just found this story recently and I love it! :) Poor Eomer and Arnhelm! Now they're really in a tight spot. I can't wait to read more. I hope you post the next chapter soon!

Oof, tough break for Eomer and Arnhelm. So they're on their own for the next day, unless the Halifirien guard comes for them. Let us hope for no orcs, or these two are going to be on the spit by the time Elfhelm can reach them.
It seems that Eomer is finally getting his head on straight, though it's going to take some time before he and Arnhelm can stand each other, I imagine. Let's hope the way to a Rider's heart is through his horse's - if Eomer can get Ravenwing on his side, perhaps his battle will be half won.

Did you decide to stop writing this story? And leaving it on a cliff-hanger? I would be much obliged if you felt up to continuing it, it's quite good.

Hallo meine Liebe!
Ein frohes neues Jahr!
Wie schön, das Du wieder schreiben kannst!
Und wie gut es doch immer wieder tut, der realen Welt ab und an einfach mal den Rücken zuzukehren, um sich der Welt unserer Helden zuzuwenden und darin einzutauchen.
Ein ganz schöner Dickkopf kommt in dieser Story zum Vorschein. Ich kann mich regelrecht in seinen inneren Kampf hineinversetzen. Stolz, Verzweiflung, Verantwortungsbewusstsein, Erschöpfung und ein wenig Angst kämpfen um die Oberhand. Sehr einfühlsam heraus gearbeitet!
Anlafs Zorn und Misstrauen ist von seiner Seite aus sehr gut verständlich. Ich stelle mich auf seine Seite, wenn ich auch nicht denke, dass Éomer tatsächlich noch etwas Schlimmes von Arnhelm zu befürchten hat. Nichts Schlimmeres vielleicht, als zukünftig eine etwas ruppige Behandlung.
Was Arnhelm selbst betrifft, so denke ich, dass er wahrhaftig genügend Schwierigkeiten zu erwarten hat, sie denn jemals heil daheim ankommen!
Hey! Das war aber mal wieder ein ganz gemeiner Zeitpunkt, das Kapitel zu beenden. Aber - wem sage ich das? Ich glaube ja nicht wirklich, dass Du nur ganz zufällig den 'ganzen' Berg hast auf sie stürzen lassen?
Ich bin wie immer furchtbar neugierig darauf, wie es denn weitergeht!
Vielen lieben Dank erst einmal für diese Fortsetzung.
In Erwartung dessen, was da weiter kommen mag,

Well, it appears that Arnhelm is just doomed - this is really not his day, not even when he catches his prey.
And poor Anlaf! I don't see how he's going to come out of this. Even if he isn't captured by orcs, slamming into something at full gallop ought to break bones in ways that won't reknit, and quite possibly will kill him outright. The only question is whether the éored will find him and how they'll interpret his separation from Arnhelm.
Éomer appears to be caught between what he knows is the truth, a decision between the mountain and the river that turned out to be the wrong one, and his hatred of Arnhelm. At some point, he will have to get over his impulsiveness enough to make good judgments in a *timely* fashion. He's already going to feel awful when he finds out about Anlaf, and if anything happens to any of the other éored Riders, he probably will feel worse for prompting them to expose themselves to danger on his behalf like this.
And now the mountain has decided to come down on him and Arnhelm - this does not look good. The mountain may be treacherous, but it looks like the beacon hill post is the only help within reach. Let's see if anyone comes for them... or if Éomer can drag himself at least over there to get help!
Two quick grammar notes: "What advise do you hope to gather from a dead king" - should be: "What advice do you hope to gather..."
"I could easily have shot you in the back when you turned it at me at the river." - Should be: "I could easily have shot you in the back when you turned it to me at the river."
