Reviewed Chapter: 9 on 7/13/2007
Loved this story- I've been following it.
Actually, I love all of your stories. They make me giggle, especially at how she turned her aunt's advice on itself in that last line!
Thank you for writing such wonderfully delightful works and for sharing them with us!

Terrific story! I have enjoyed this story a lot. I do like though in the last chapter how Eomer and Lothiriel make fun of Aunt Irviniel's ways about proper Gondorian Ladies. LOL!

Cannot wait to see more Eomer/Lothiriel stories written by YOU!

Author Reply: Little humorous oneshot coming next week. Thanks for reviewing .LBJ

A most, most satisfactory tale of the very masculine Eomer and the proper bride for him.

Thanks so very much for a good deal of entertainment!

Author Reply: You are welcome - just glad you enjoyed. Thanks for the reviews.LBJ

A more--planned?--meeting than the last one, and one obviously eagerly anticipated by both sides. And the beginning to a markedly new life.

Oh, I'm glad he got beyond the mundane and actually WROTE something!

Sorry she saw the other meeting, but Anniel is a wise as well as experienced woman, and counseled her well.

Having my own allergies I can appreciate the sneezing jag in the garden arbor; poor children! But they have a good deal to look forward to now!

Enjoying looking forward to the next entries.

Author Reply: He certainly struggled with the letter. She could do with Anniel around to give her advice as she embarks on being Queen of Rohan.LBJ

Sounds as if Anniel might be looking for a change of address, too.

And Lothiriel's romance is developing nicely. There's something to be said for princessly training, when it comes to managing social situations - and getting warrior kings out of having to pick flowers in public.

Good fun - but I hope the hawk wasn't a foreshadowing of something ominous.

Sorry to be so behind in reviewing. I think my brain has been taking a break.

Author Reply: The flowers are significant and will play a further part. The hawk was just a little extra.Thanks for reviewing - always appreciated.LBJ

Anniel doesn't sound as if she's finding the attention she's getting unpleasant--quite the contrary; and it's good Lothiriel finds pleasure in her intended. But I strongly suspect Eomer will communicate far better personally--and physically--than he does in writing. Heh!

Author Reply: Eventualy he gets to say what he thinks - but wooing the daughter of a friend can be daunting.LBJ

Oh dear, funny. If I'm not mistaken, that was how the Victorian "Ladies" were supposed to act. A primative form of birth control?
Any way, in all this exploring of what Lothiriel was expecting, I have wondered if Eomer was fearing he would end up with a cold fish that her aunt would be proud of?
But you have nailed the expectations of what most men want, a "Lady" in public and a "Lady of the night" in private.

Author Reply: The saying around her - which I adapted slightly is --- a man wishes his wife to be like a nun - in public, a whore - in the bedroom and his mother in the kitchen!LBJ

Oh, hahaha, I laughed all through this chapter! Poor, poor, poor Lothiriel! It's a good thing that she has friends to set her straight, otherwise there might never be a legitimate heir to Rohan's throne.

The only thing I could think of while reading this was how happy I was that I didn't have an aunt give me a talk like that before I was married, ha.

Author Reply: Me too. Luckily my Loti is made of sterner stuff!LBJ

It does sound as if Auntie didn't have much fun in her marriage at all. Poor thing! And her worry about laundry! Hilarious!

Ah, dear. You've had me giggling with this one.

Author Reply: Yes, and it was not as if she had to do the laundry herself, either.LBJ
