|Knowing your own ideas as to who held Boromir's heart, I find that tall, blue-eyed blonde remark telling on his part, and prophetic on hers.|
Author Reply: When I published this in my journal, I made a note: "AU to my customary AU!", so that relationship doesnt exist in this world, but thank you for thinking of it! In the sea of all that dark Numenorean hair, flowing golden honey-colored locks and blue eyes would be unique,fascinating, irresistable.
Thanks for reading and commenting!

|Well - it's good to know that Lothiriel has a weakness for tall blonds. And Faramir? |
Shame that Boromir was so indifferent to whichever suitable maiden was selected for him. Just as well probably, considering his father would most likely have chosen for him - if he could ever have taken his attention from Other Matters. But still...
Author Reply: I don't think Boromir would have really had a choice; since he had no strong preference I'm sure his dad would have been happy to make up his mind for him. Faramir, now - I can very easily imagine him as a young romantic, madly infatuated with one lovely young thing after another. Good thing he discovered other interests (or career paths that moved him out of the city).

|You had me until the blonde thing, LOL! Seriously, I've been hoping for this sort of thing, thank you. ((((hugs)))) And THIS brown eyed brunette does prefer blue-eyed blond guys... in fact, I have one! <3|
Author Reply: Thank you so much! This was written as a birthday gift for an English Lit major, in case you couldn't tell *grin* I had great fun imagining Kenneth Branagh as Boromir, at least in this instance. Not sure how he would have handled orcs, though.
I wonder if clever Lothiriel had Eomer picked out from the time she was, what maybe twelve years old? That's what I would have done.

|The poor Brothers Mir, it isn't like they would have had much choice in the matter as long as Denethor was still alive. Boromir says he prefers tall, blue-eyed blondes. I had always wondered if Denethor had a match in mind for him with Eowyn. (I don't know if Tolkien had anything to say about the subject.) Lothiriel says she prefers fair-haired men, so I wonder if she has already scoped out Eomer, LOL!|

I don't know what Denethor may have had in mind, but I always thought Eowyn would have been a perfect match for Boromir - she's got a feisty streak that he would have found intriguing. And after being surrounded all their lives with those Numenoreans, all dark-haired with eyes of grey, how could Boromir, Faramir, and Lothiriel not be intrigued by the novelty of those tall slim blonds?
