Oh! Poor Eowyn and Faramir. Could almost taste their frustration. I loved the scene with Eomer and the remark about furthering relations with Dol Amroth!! Too cute. And Pippin being so smart at the end...*hee*

I love this piece, there is so much more than romance here! The humor in Faramir's dunking and Pippin's distress are perfect. There is a good mix of emotions here! Uncertainty and sadness, love and comfort. Wonderful characterizations throughout. The interaction with Eomer? Inspired! I could feel Faramir's discomfort at being discovered in a trysting place by his soon to be brother-in-law, not to mention catching him in the same mission with Faramir's own cousin! The actual lovemaking scene is not what one might expect. Tender and fraught with emotion and some uncertainty, yet once they begin it is sweet and sexy and HOT. The epilouge with Faramir actually being grateful for Pippin's faux pas and wanting to repeat it... I could see the looks that passed between all of them and Pippin's grin...wonderful!

I really like this story. It's light but not fluffy. The image of Pippin being so concerned for Faramir was very cute, and I can see this kind of relationship developing between them in the months after Pippin returned from Cormallen. And the hobbits' constant appetites was very in-character. As Éowyn put it, "Do they never stop eating?" I can see them causing a revolt among the kitchen staff very easily.Then we get to the more adult scenes. This story maintains a good balance of how much detail to reveal, making this quite possibly the most tasteful (and therefore, in my opinion, best) erotica I've ever read. But what really steals the show are the character moments. When Éomer and Lothíriel showed up I nearly cracked up. Negotiating with Dol Amroth indeed!In short, the characterizations were well done, the plot interesting, and the writing superb. It all combines for a very enjoyable piece (though I do prefer it split into two parts).

Sweet, touching, funny, and dear: this was exactly the way I always imagined Faramir to be in private. You've also given Eowyn a proactive role in lovemaking, which is entirely appropriate for her. In all, a very fine setup for some very tender smut.

A very amusing piece. Somehow not feeling like LoTR, somehow not feeling like Faramir and Eowyn, but very well written sucking one into the arousal of the protagonists. It works very well as an erotic piece starting from a comical situation working up to the partly nude Faramir and ending with very modern acts of mutual performances causing the partner's sexual release. Masterly crafted.
