The Princess and the Horse Lord

Ch. 22: Road to Lothlórien

Good foreshadowing!  The stage is being set for the unfolding of a great passion.  Elladan has an interesting, but honest, view of lovers remaining 'true' to one another.  Lothiriel and Elladan are engaging in an intelligent and not-so-subtle conversational dance around topics tinged with love and lust, confounded by notions of conventionsl constancy.  I laughed aloud at the comment about unrquited love as "artistic drivel invented by minstrels to gain the regard of tenderhearted young women"  Yup. That's it exactly.

Ch. 22: Road to Lothlórien

Thanks, Bardess, for your comments on the last two chapters. The Mearas info is largely from UT and the Silmarillion if I remember correctly (and a lot of discussion with friends.) I was just told today that I have miscategorized this story by calling it a romance--that it is actually drama. (And I've wondered along if it might be a comedy.) I appreciate your compliment on the foreshadowing, although I thought it a bit on the heavy-handed side for such a delicate description. But thank you very much!
