Review of chapter "Educating Éowyn" from (Recent Donor)Luna
I'm so pleased I had a chance to finish this tale. I enjoy Eowyn's thoughts on the elves and delighted in her misadventures in the bathing pools. It's always nice learning about the lives of the elves (in your world, but I like to consider your world to be canon since so much of it is - it is quite alright with me to ignore Professor Tolkien's very Catholic ways ;)

Thank you for writing this :)

Thank you, dear Luna. As for the Professor's very Catholic ways - someone on another fic site, in a discussion, said that she couldn't really believe that the very passionate elves whose history is told in the Silmarillion could be so totally uninterested in sexual passion as Law and Customs imply... And that seems right to me!

Review of chapter "Educating Éowyn" from (Past Donor)Joyful
I do not think I properly reviewed this before.

I love it. I kind of wish Tindome was there to explain everything to Eowyn in ways she understood, but she seems to have figured it out eventually, lol.

I love the Returniverse. There is never enough!
Comments from author:
Thank you! I had originally thought of Tindóme being there but realised that it was unlikely that Éowyn and Faramir would have waited that long (until she left Lothlorien) before coming to spend time and try to understand the Elven culture.

I have a shortish story part written, and bits of the next long, long one; there will certainly be more.

Review of chapter "Educating Éowyn" from (Past Donor)DonSample
Another nice instalment in this series. I'm happy my suggestion sparked this story.
Comments from author:
Thank you for the idea - actually I think I must add a short note crediting you for that inspiration!

Review of chapter "Educating Éowyn" from starshinedown
I adore this series, so much.

Ah! Such an education for Eowyn! I suspect, given her preconceptions, that tripping over the bathing pools as she did is probably the only way she would have accepted that the Elves are indeed sexual beings. :D

I'm so happy you are still writing in this world. It gives me warm fuzzies to read and re-read your stories from this setting.
Comments from author:
It's lovely to know that you are still reading. This was a point to return to I felt - before following the Elves to Valinor...

Review of chapter "Educating Éowyn" from Cutiepie
Sweet addition to the series. I enjoyed it, and found myself smiling many times at how utterly innocent Eowyn herself was about so many things. She probably would have been floored by the suggestion that perhaps it *wasn't* two males and a female at the pool that night. You didn't say, but it very well could have been three males. Thank you for sharing your talents, and I look forward to more, whenever it should appear.
Comments from author:
Thank you! Yes - I left it up to the reader to decide whether Éowyn was right about the middle part of the threesome. I did have it in mind, to start with, that it was definitely a female but that Nithdur (mentioned in Left Behind as being almost exclusively gay) and a partner were also there - but I couldn't make it 'fit' properly and so it had to go! Leaving the third member as 'of indeterminate gender' became the best option.
