The Princess and the Horse Lord

Oh, very nice.  Lothiriel is a credible character. You recongized the validity and probability of "oh what the hell, take a chance" relationships springing up in deparate times. Now you are bringing Lothiriel back to her sociopolitial mileiu and reminding us that she is quite young and in need of some reassurance.

Bardess,

Thanks for the comments. I am glad the characterization works for you. More to come soon...

Several things...

Firstly: I love Ioreth's cameo. She's so much fun to write and read :)

Faramir: Whee! As something a Faramir fanatic (*cough*) not only do I thank you for including him, but I thank you for writing him so well. The last line of the chapter spoken by my favourite Steward is just...perfect. Hennaid :)

Thirdly, I love the way you sometimes shift into Lothiriel's point of view. It helps to flesh her out all the more.

Cheers,

Ti :)

Ti'ana Luthien,

Thank you. I am glad you like the story and the characters--there is more of Faramir--hope you continue to like him. More of Ioreth too--one more chapter in the Houses of Healing. Sorry, I can't respond in the Noble Tongue. (My Éomer and Lothíriel can get it on in Elvish, but unfortunately I am linguistically deprived!) but once again, thank you (or if you prefer, Hennaid, mellon nîn—there I've no doubt extended my competence).

Hi, Oshun,

I've started it! And I really like it so far; your technique of mixing third person with Lothiriel's first-person recollections is something I'd never seen before, but it works really well for me. :) This is one of the first stories about Gondor that I've read, but I do love the cultural details that you've thrown in. I look forward to reading more!

Best wishes,

Dawn
