Definitely a bold move for Eomer. I'm in agreement with Eowyn: the court is not going to be happy about this. But it's a heroic move, too, and it shows that Eomer has grown quite a bit since his first and somewhat awkward meeting with a certain Ranger, elf, and dwarf. I don't know how well his plan will work, but I'm glad he's willing to give it a try.

How optimistic! The Ring War may put an end to hostilities between the two peoples, but it takes present-day heroes to recognize that possibility when the past has been so conflicted. The dialog seems right, and I especially enjoyed the reference to Cirion and Eorl. P.S. "Eorl" and 2nd "Éowyn" misspelled - see note 36 of "C&E" in "Unfinished Tales".

Ah, a different kind of courage indeed! The courage to do the right thing, even when it's not popular. The whole thing was well-told, but the ending especially made me smile.

An interesting view of Eomer. It is nice to see him portrayed as a good and wise king
