Ch. 52 - Smoke
Second of three Denethor POVs. No warnings, though there is an oblique description of a corpse at the very end.
The chapter takes place over early and mid July . The immediate euphoria over Finduilas's pregnancy is wearing off, though Denethor is still very happy. Larger and darker concerns have to be addressed, and once again someone says what should not be mentioned. A strange alliance becomes stronger, and an old dog learns a new trick. Extensive conversations with Thorongil, and substantial scenes with Finduilas, Ecthelion, Halmir, Beregar, and Laanga.
Big thanks, as always, to my indefatigable beta readers.
