Amid the Powers and Chances of the World

Ch. 42: Until the Stars are All Alight

How good to see a new chapter, and well worth the waiting. 

It was good to see Rowanna back with friends in The Mark.  I enjoyed the description of the visit of the elves  - surreptitiously warding off the Evil Eye seems very likely, with all they believe about the Witch of The Woods.

That Arwen's words, spoken to reassure Rowanna, should increase her worries is also very believable.   How difficult it might be for Elrohir and Elladan to be objective about her worries, should she share them.

Ch. 42: Until the Stars are All Alight

Glad you enjoyed it, curiouswombat! I've been itching to get the story back to Minas Tirith, but I did want to spend some time on the Elves' passage through Rohan - in part because we don't get it in canon at all, and in part because I wanted to show that the culture clash between the Rohirrim on the one hand, and Elven and Elf-friendly cultures on the other, is very much still alive, and will thus have a bearing on some of Rowanna's decisions about her future...

How difficult it might be for Elrohir and Elladan to be objective about her worries, should she share them.

Oh ho, just you wait 'till next chapter. Elrohir's going to [cut for spoilage]...

(Not long to wait, I promise, it's just about written!)

Oh, and I meant to add earlier:

That Arwen's words, spoken to reassure Rowanna, should increase her worries is also very believable.  

Poor Arwen did unintentionally say all the worst possible things for Rowanna to hear at that juncture, didn't she? (That was deliberate on my part - they were messages I needed Rowanna to hear, and I knew Arwen was in the best position to say them; but I also knew there was no way Arwen would be that unambiguous if she'd known Rowanna's situation. So I had to keep her in the dark and let her inadvertently put her foot in it all over the place ;-) )
