Nice to weekend to all! Seems I'm back writing fanfic for a bit, as ideas and summer vacation happily coincided :D

We are okay. My daughter's wedding that was finally cancelled by lockdown (should have been March 28th) is to be on August 28th as our island is currently covid-free :)

Wonderful exposé on the more ridiculous customs of weddings- I love this cosy intimacy between the two, I imagine them sitting, sewing, gossiping, looking out of the windown, giggling- they have a lovely relationship. And you have made me love Lothiriel.



Author's Response:

I must admit that I had great fun writing this - and was very glad that none of these were wedding traditions in the NE of England when I got married!

I'm glad you like Lothiriel - I have become rather fond of her... and Éomer who just, occasionally, needs a nudge in the right direction! 

I have another short piece just written for Back to Middle Earth Month set a few years later that I will post soon, too.

I loved this little snapshot of tradition. The thought of Aragorn and Arwen having their friends supervise them in the bedchamber was amusing! I pictured a bunch of confused Elves and stern Dunedain standing around uncomfortably!

Author's Response:

Thank you - I'm so glad that you enjoyed it.

I think if it were it only Aragorn's wedding his 'brothers' would have made the most of such a tradition for fun.  But as it was also Arwen's wedding, and I think her brothers would only appear happy, not feel it,  they would not want her embarassed  And so elves, membersof the Dunedain, and a dwarf, would have made sure everyone left the royal bed chamber whilst the two participants were fully clothed!!

Hello Curiouswombat.

You perfectly explained why these customs took place. I may add some of them endured till WW2 in french countryside, such as hanging out the wash, ostensibly the still blood-stained sheets.

Author's Response:

Thank you Chiara - I'm really pleased that you enjoyed this peek into what Lothiriel refers to, in Cushions, as 'worse customs in Gondor'!
