Ch. :

I enjoyed the way Lothy used her female intuition and her common sense to get through her first day in her official function as under king.   Makes me wonder how you plan the plot.

Hello,

This is my favourite of your Lothiriel and Eomer stories, because it follows them after their marriage, as they get to know each other and she settles into life and being Queen. I suppose because it's about her real life, after the happily ever after.

Thanks for the stories,

AndreaH 

PS I am also enjoying Tides of Destiny very much!

Hi Andrea,

Thanks for your comment – Bound by Duty is the only story so far that follows Éomer and Lothíriel after their marriage – since they did not really meet until the day before it sort of had to! Laugh out loud

But if you keep with me until Part 3 of Tide of Destiny then that will be a flit through Lothíriel's life as Queen – right up to the end. Glad you are enjoying it. LBJ

I think this a great fleshing out of the classic Tolkien habit of writing a throwaway line about someone's wife. How you followed their relationship from political marriage and showing how it evolved into something more was just about as perfect as I've ever seen it written. And I really like how it all came from Lothiriel's perspective, rather than trying to keep switching between the two. Seriously, fantastic job!

Ch. 1: An unwarranted proposal

This is very romantic too--especially the scene where Eomer and Lothiriel happen to glance at each other.  That was the most vivid scene for me.

Ch. 3: An interesting journey

Loved the initial interaction of Lothy and Eomer.  With my modern sensibilities, I really felt for her here--meeting her future husband a day or so before your wedding.

Ch. 4: An understated welcome

I liked the "connection" between Eomer and Lothy even if they have not been together for so long--adds more romance.  This also builds up anticipation for how Lothy will adjust to her new life in Meduseld.

Ch. 13: A dangerous plan

I liked the first scene very much--when the husband transformed to a king.  I like how her feelings are growing for her husband.  Your story is so sweetly addicting.

Ch. 17: A waiting game

This chapter was difficult for her but I think it demonstrated her strength.  The way you fleshed her out is great.

Ch. 18: A time for healing

Haha! Liked the reunion scene and how amorous Eomer could be even if he's wounded.   It just demonstrates the deepening feelings they have for each other, which were probably heightened by the separation.

Ch. 21: Epilogue

Very sweet ending, like a cherry on a sundae.
