|Sweet. That pretty much sums this fic up. I loved your characterization of Eowyn. We often see her as this tough warrior and forget that she is still a woman at heart. You added another dimension to her personality. Well-done. And your musings on the fact that both of Eowyn's and Faramir's mothers died when they were very young, hence they never really knew them was nicely thought out. I like the fact you made Denethor and Finduilas's family life loving. The emotion was sweet without being sappy. Ah, long live families and home!|
Author Reply: Thank you for your generous comments. I have always enjoyed Eowyn, but have not thought much about the other dimensions of her character, post-war, until fairly recently. There must have been tremendous adjustments, not only for her, but for all the people of Middle-Earth, who had lived for so long under a shadow.
Though she would not have forgotten what it was like to be a shieldmaiden, I think she would have found sweet relief, really, in the simple life of wife and mother (even if her life, as the Steward's Lady, would not have been entirely simple)

|Beautiful. That is such a touching point of connection between Eowyn and Finduilas. |
Author Reply: Thank you! I had great pleasure writing it, inspired by the dear friend and exquisitely talented writer, Aliana, in whose honor it was written.
