Destiny's Child  by Mirkwoodmaiden 3 Review(s)

Dear Mirkwoodmaiden
So nice to see an update of this story of Our favourite shieldmaiden!
It is so difficult to see the King deteriorate more and more under Grima's influence. As always you write Éowyn's emotions touchingly. How I feel her grief and helplessness!
And then this wonderful friendship with Gamhelm, sweet to the maximum. Loved their exchange of words. What a comfort to have a friend so close, like a father, a shoulder to lean on.
And poor Théodred. He has to watch his father crumble, and feels so much responsibility. What can he do against it...?
Heavy, but beautifully written.
I hope you are well, and will stay safe.

Sorry it took soget back long to you! Glad you liked it! Gosh this hasn't been easy to write. It is so hard for Éowyn and Théodred right now. Both are so powerless to help. These are the dark times. And it is only going to get worse before it gets better for Éowyn. Thanks for the kind words!

Hope you are well and safe!

((hugs))

But she shook herself out the melancholy that threatened to take hold. She straightened her shoulders and stuffed the negative emotions back into a corner of her heart where she could safely ignore them for a while longer until life once again let them loose. It was the battle that she fought every day.

What a way to live, but at least Eowyn isn't alone with no one to understand her heart. Gamhelm is another wonderful friend for her.

So happy to hear from you! Hope all is very with you and yours!

It is a dark time in Eowyn's life. She is feeling pretty hopeless and driven on only by her duty and her love for her uncle and cousin. But she does have those who are there for her in Gamhelm and Holdlith and her little dog because we all someone to be there.

This story will eventually join with "Bound by Duty; Bound by Joy" and end with Eowyn finally finding happiness with Faramir. It is really the goal I am focusing on because it is really pulling Eowyn this unhappy period but it is part of the story.

Thank you for writing!

((hugs))
