Story Summary

Snapshots of my nanny OFC from Dol Amroth, and her sometimes-hectic life with Boromir and Faramir. This is the same OFC as in "Sea Longing", only less melancholy. These currently jump all *over* the map in terms of time-frame -- I'll try to keep in them in order.

I have to say this really is one of those ideas that I now couldn't imagine not having come into being. I was loosely aware at first that the Bros.Mir must have had a nurse, but...

It all makes perfect sense. How else, having been (in theory) mostly raised by deeply emotionally introverted, favouritist Denethor- and when they did have a mother she was quite possibly dying from depression- surrounded by people who reveared them as the most important little boys in the country- did these two grow up so reletively well-adjusted, amicable, affectionate and normal? (Not entirely so, as things got a bit more strained later on, but a lot more normal than they could have been under the circumstances). Cameraderie with their fellow soldiers might have helped, but of course! it was mostly because the person who actually brought them up was actually very sensible! Hooray for Nanny!

Thank you so much! Since Nanny was one of my very first LOTR ficlets ever, you can tell that this subject was always on my mind. :)  

<i>it was mostly because the person who actually brought them up was actually very sensible! Hooray for Nanny!

</i>*blush* Thank you!  I'm pleased that people like her, because I'm rather fond of her myself.

And you're right -- they both did turn out awfully normal, all things considered. They could have been horrible, spoiled, haughty little prigs, but they weren't - there had to be some stabilizing influence there.  I'm glad to let it be Nanny. :)
