Tolkien quote of the day:

Dark now fell the shadow on Beleriand, as is told hereafter, but in Angband Morgoth forged for himself a great crown of iron, and he called himself King of the World. In token of this he set the Silmarils in his crown. His hands were burned black by the touch of those hallowed jewels, and black they remained ever after; nor was he ever free from the pain of the burning, and the anger of the pain. That crown he never took from his head, though its weight became a deadly weariness. Never but once only did he depart for a while secretly from his domain in the North; seldom indeed did he leave the deep places of his fortress, but governed his armies from his northern throne. And once only also did he himself wield weapon, while his realm lasted.

Of the Flight of the Noldor, The Silmarillion

bullet Destiny's Child by Mirkwoodmaiden Last Updated: 8/1/2020
Éowyn is an endlessly fascinating character to me. This is her story, to my mind. This story will eventually merge with my story of Faramir, "Bound by Duty; Bound by Joy" where they meet. It is her story in that story arc. The first chapter was inspired by Lindelea asking about how Éowyn became a Shieldmaiden.
