9. Author's Note
Secondly, I said that story was somewhat AU. This is namely because I’m too much of a believer to think that Éowyn and Faramir had any less than fifty years together in Emyn Arnen. :D It’s also AU because their son Elboron has not yet been born; I tried to work it with him in it, but I could not see Éowyn abandoning her children whereas alone, she has only herself to worry about. I also tend to believe that Faramir and Éowyn were both buried in Ithilien, but for dramatic purposes I have him being buried in Rath Dinen. Furthermore, as Raksha pointed out to me, we have Faramir's dates - he lived to be about 120!
Finally, many thanks to those on the Henneth Annûn Yahoo Group who answered my questions about the cultural/political system of the Haradrim and the burial place of the Stewards. Thanks to Erin for educating me on architectural terminology (i.e. “crenels”). Finally, many thanks to Ann for being my wonderful beta. Hennaid!!
