Also, new chapter: The Steward and the Kings.
Long aftermath of battle chapter featuring the steward of Gondor and two kings. This is my last LDID update before the school year starts again, btw. If I'm lucky, I'll get one more fic out that's been in the works the past three months, but which is currently being a beast.

LDID 41: Baggage

Baggage is now available.
Summary from last time: The siege of Minas Tirith has been lifted, but not without cost. Both Minas Tirith and Rohan have lost their heirs, and Merry's attack on the Witch-king, while heroic, ended badly for him. Denethor's grief threatened to paralyze action, but Théoden talked him down from intractability. He and Aragorn met, exchanged barbs, had a palantír-staring contest, and eventually agreed that Denethor would remain Lord of Minas Tirith and nominally under Aragorn's command, at least for the time being. They also agreed to call a council for early the next morning.
Aragorn, exhausted, returned to his tent, hoping to rest, only to discover an irate and agitated Legolas and one Captain Éothain who had a message about Merry...
"Baggage" takes up directly where that conversation ended. Lots of talk, not much action, though we do get a day further down the timeline.
